Try using Varnie's Launcher here you might need to change a few other things in the file to launcher hacked up reader though. If you want it to launch hacked up reader you need change the path for the executable. It should look something like below.
Code:
{"name": "Launch HackedUpReader", "priority": 1, "action": "/mnt/us/hackedupreader/bin/cr3"}
You can read about this in the first post of hacked up reader here.

That's because the priority is set when the launcher entry is generated in the Java code of the hackedupreader extension.

AFAIK there is currently no way of setting the priority for a Java implemented launcher item outside of the code itself.

One more extension: load/unload Reading Timer reader plugin (hidden feature present on newer Kindle PaperWhite). Can anybody help me (or address me) on generating a proper install/uninstall package?

Niluje released an updated packager to make the .bin files.
It's an updated version of the original python script.

Have a look here
EDIT: NOW FIXED. Cheers Niluje

@twobob: Broken link (the ellipsis isn't a fake one ).

@pirl8: Between the examples in there and ixtab's packages, you should have enough reading material to get how this works .

@pirl8: Feel free to create an installer package, but I personally think it's a bit over the top.

After all, the installation is achieved by copying a folder into the "extensions" folder on the USB disk, and restarting the framework. That's exactly the same amount of effort as copying a bin file to the USB disk and updating the framework.

Does this work with the Paperwhite, too? I've been trying to get it to install without any luck. "Update Your Kindle" is grayed out, and when I remount my PW, the update file is gone from the root directory.

Actually, it's a bliss that these update files contain markers for the devices that they can run on, and that they refuse to run on other devices - otherwise, we'd probably be swamped by requests from users who bricked their Kindle by installing an update file which doesn't work on their device.

If you're really adventurous, you can try to install it manually via usbnetwork. But because the home screen has been completely changed on the PW, chances are that you'll just entirely screw up everything - maybe up to the point of bricking the device. And remember, the only current known way to debrick the device is via a serial console - physically opening the device and all that.

So: no, at this point it is NOT recommended to try this on the PW.

Maybe you have to use the command to update your kindle manually over console or usbnetwork if you have a .bin file in your root (mnt/us/).

Code:
lipc-set-prop com.lab126.ota startUpdate 1
I am not sure that this works for you so do not be sad if this not work.

Best regards

can you please elaborate on the risks here? I can't understand what is so dangerous about it. perhaps I'm missing some automagic?

Hey guys, I need a little help getting this working. I'm trying to install this so that I can use the K5 Reading Timer launcher extension.

During installation, the kindle gave me a message saying that the update was successful and rebooted. The problem is I do not see a new launcher option in the home screen menu, nor in the book menu.

My Kindle Touch with SOs is on 5.1.2 and it is jailbroken (with the data.stgz file). No other hacks have been applied.

Here are the steps I took to install:
1. extracted and copied the update_launcher_1.0.1_install.bin file (and nothing else) to the root directory of my kindle while it was mounted as a usb drive.
2. Unmounted my kindle and disconnected the usb cable.
3. used Menu > Settings, Menu > Update your Kindle

The update did install an extensions folder with sub-folders and files for orientation and usbnetwork. I also followed the steps to add the reading timer extension and rebooted, but of course I still do not see the "Launcher" menu item, nor any other additional menu options that I didn't already have before.

Did I miss an installation step?
