That link is not to the mentioned thread. It is a direct download link. Please provide a link to the thread too. Thanks.

Perhaps it is getting corrupted while copying it to your kindle. Try a different microUSB cable. Check the md5sum before and after copying to the kindle.

The zip file has checksums for each of the files it contains.
It also un-zip's fine here.

Do as GM recommends, checksum it at its source (your pc) and after transfer to its destination (your Kindle).
checksums must match.

I amended the links as requested.

The md5 checksums match on the PC and the kindle. The checksum my "update_jbpatch_2.4.1_install.bin" is:
609b969e9d915325e06e9f893c2f77a2

Is U002 in fact a checksum problem or could it be something else?

Just to check: JBPatch should install on Kindle 3 wifi with FW 3.4, right?

Hi can I ask you about the margins?

There is plenty of unused space when reading pdf. On the right ssde is slider for pages(it hides after some time) but there is still page count on the bottom. Is it possible to use whole display for displaying text? Look at your second picture there you can see, that you use just aroung 85 % of width of your display...

hmm. unsure. the pdf viewer might prove to be IS a special case. As the option is clearly marked "non-pdf"

I get the strong sense the answer is going to be "No".

Just to double check I adjusted my margin minium setting (to no effect on pdf) in JBPatch (pictured), so "No".

HTH, porting another viewer could be an option.

Compiling for Kindle 3

I am working on compiling JBPatch for kindle 3.

Apart from some minor syntax changes everything was looking quite good. Now however I have stumbled on a more substantial problem.

Kindle 3 uses Java 1.3 which does not have the class "java.util.LinkedHashMap" which is used in configurableSettings.java. Unfortunately my java skills are insufficient to rewrite this modules.

Can anybody help with this to help extend JBPatch to Kindle 3?

Is it present in the gcj sources?
If so, borrow it (with note of its OpenSource license).

I am afraid I am going to need a bit more explanation. What are the gcj sources?

Duh...
http://gcc.gnu.org/java/
Is there another compiler and Java library set in use in the open source Linux world?

(Well, yes, the OpenJDK project:
http://openjdk.java.net/
but that is probably a second-choice set of sources.)

Thanks. Copying the source for LinkedHashMap from gcj results in the error message that generics are not supported in java 1.3.

I tried removing all "<K,V>" from the file but am now stuck with:

.\java\util\LinkedHashMap.java:135: error: cannot find symbol
class LinkedHashEntry extends HashEntry
^
symbol: class HashEntry
location: class LinkedHashMap

This is for a K3?
Try using version 1.4 rather than 1.3
