Which is fair enough.

That's a far cry from showing your own pictures and fonts
The thrust of this thread.

Stump up your dough, keep the bean-counters happy, anything else may hurt the future of the devices, let's not have another tethering disaster yeah?

Throw stones now, thanks

Although we disapprove of DOING it, the official MobileRead policy allows Special Offers removal to be discussed openly, and even to provide detailed instructions how to remove Special Offers (because is is NOT illegal).

Here is one of many threads that that discuss this topic:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=160085

If the policy has changed, there is a LOT of MobileRead history that needs to be "moderated".

EDIT: Oh the other hand, 3G tethering details have always been banned, and such details get deleted and threads closed, unlike SO-removal...

EDIT2: Please remove your ads the "Right Way", and have amazon do it for you...

I paid my $20 fee. I just wish I could keep the ads at the bottom of the homescreen (since you can only see 6 covers anyway) to get good deals, but keep my custom screensavers. I guess I'll just have to keep my eye on the SO thread and turn them back on if anything good (like the $5 credit or the best-seller for $1) shows up again.

Kindle DX Graphite - FW 2.5.8

Has anyone had success with a hack for the screensavers on the DX Graphite with 2.5.8 build?

I have tried a couple downloads, the newest and perhaps closest to success being update_ss_0.29.N_dxg_install.bin from the beginning of this thread. Unfortunately it runs for about 90-seconds, the gives a failure notice, and reboots.

I also shot Amazon the extra $20 a few days ago to remove the ads, and now I'm kind of missing them. There's only so many screensavers, and I believe I've already seen them all. It gets to be same-old/same-old. At least with the ads, they're changed on a fairly regular basis so there's always the hope of something new to look at.

On the bright side, at least I won't be running the risk of having this Huggies baby butt staring me in the face when I pick up my Kindle anymore. I saw this fellow on my Kindle Touch a while back. Guess that goes to show the ads aren't marketed to a specific audience. I'm 62 years old. The next time I buy any diapers, they'll probably be for me.

That thread is not deleted (but it is closed). It contains instructions in the first post. You just cannot add anything new to the discussion. It was probably closed after deleting the hotter parts of a typical festering morality debate that tends to hijack such threads.

EDIT: And I like my ads too. They really DO give more variety than the "same old" screensavers. Even the home screen ad gives a little flavor and variety, and it is quite unobtrusive.

At least it wasn't the diapered butt of a wrinkled old fogey sticking up into your face. Perhaps if they start tracking your preferences better, you may have eventually gotten such a targetted ad. Perhaps better to leave your ads off.

Released Fonts v5.5.N, SS v0.30.N, USBNet v0.44.N.

Mostly updated binaries, a few under-the-hood changes, and the addition of mosh-client to USBNet.

I also repacked the JailBreak to follow pdurrant's suggestion: the default install files now target the latest FW versions, while the files with the 3.0-to-3.2 suffix target those older FW. The doc has been updated to follow this change.

@qlob: Well, I couldn't, as it was mostly a perl script before. They seem to have merged the C++ port of it in the latest development release, though. There's still a 'mosh' perl wrapper, but I didn't investigate much more than that. I hope the -client/-server couple is enough...

EDIT: Nope, the C++ wrapper hasn't been merged yet. So, err, yeah, the -client part might not be that useful, yet . I confused the -client with the wrapper last night, not merged yet .

EDIT²: If you really care about the client, I can build a patched version with the C++ wrapper... .
