Thank you.
If your goal is to load PDF files to the kindle, plug it into a host PC and copy your PDF files to the USB drive documents folder from a host PC.

The download hack can only do a subset of PDF documents - I think it checks "extensions", which do not really exist in URIs, rather than MIME types. Plus it can't overcome things depending on cookies, most prominently log-in sessions.

There's an "alternative browser" thread here in the developer's corner, which might bring other possibilities. I also throw in good old text-based browsers run in a terminal emulator like myts.

When it's about using the Kindle's 3G connection, however, that would not work out of the box and discussing it here in the forums is not permitted (and I don't encourage it either).

Use your PC for the first download ;
When using a browser such as Firefox ;
there is a "down load progress" box shown ;
click on the title and choose "copy download link" (other browsers should have a similar function) ;
that copied link should have the actual url with the *.pdf name in it.

Ah, but to do that, you would now have the document on your PC, so just transfer it via USB cable.

Then we don't even know if the Kindle's browser can make sense out of the JavaScript. The downloading hack is nice, but I wouldn't go a long way to try and fix it for the cases where it does not work.

not to be a naysayer. but I just replaced the flaky download hack in favour of text browser. Wasn't keen on the way it embedded itself at all times regardless of web activity. Plus it failed a lot.



EDIT: You could of course do a promiscuous packet grab of the network traffic - your side of the router (assuming your setup supports it), like on a seperate device (a PC?) and look around for more clues. Seems like a lot of work though.

Hope the helps
