THX, then this the easiest solution for the ones not willing /able to do the version via ssh.
Additional question, does it block the update effort as well or simply make it fail?

If you try to manually update, the update will appear to install but it won't take as long as actually installing the update, and when it's "done" and your Kindle has started back up, you can check your firmware version to see that it hasn't changed. Automatic updates seem to be simply blocked.

I'm reticent to package something that removes access to amazons services.
For obvious reasons.

So either it by hand or as you/AZImmortal suggest above
Glad you got it sorted

Unfortunately I just tried but cannot install updates provider in mine. Maybe it can't be installed in 3.3?

sorry what?

the tin-hat tweak or the 3.4 update?

the quote of mine (for the security nerf) was from a 3.3 kindle.

exactly what are you trying to do?

cheers : ))

EDIT: it REALLY helps if you quote something to refer to...

So I tried to install it in my kindle 3 wifi with 3.3, jailbreak and localisation mod. It wouldn't install, giving error 8.

I know, and the device is constantly trying to update, rebooting every time it goes idle.

That's what we are trying ti fix. I said it few posts before.

blacklist the update. I seem to recall this can be done somehow for the 3. I don't know how. Niluje might?


here is some alternate options:
Spoiler:
you could also simply hack and slash:

/etc/updater.conf (pictured in full with the extra amend at the end)

I changed:

PHP Code:
# Returns battery in percent. Integer, % sign stripped off
get_batt_percent() {
#    return `gasgauge-info -s | sed 's/\%//'`
    
[B]return 14[/B]

as it checks for 15 the update should never install. Totally untested but that is certainly one option (was my first look in the scripts)

you could also block ip's, Amend services, point services to localhost and a whole other list of options.

If you just want to stop OTA updates dead - then this should work. Did I say it was untested?

might want to check it is ACTUALLY 14 and not '14' that needs returning... I'm not sure tbh. I think without the quotes:
[root@kindle /dev]# gasgauge-info -s
95%

Another option would be:

add the entry
127.0.0.1 todo-g7g.amazon.com
to /etc/hosts:
This has other side effects though that may not be desirable.



Probably the easiest is:

Change 15 to 101

Quote:
# Minimum battery required for an update (percent)
_MIN_BATT=101
: )

Okay testing this now: restarting framework now ! EEk

Well, my kindle didn't explode on a restart with the 101 in place.
And I don't even need to test if that works. because it just has to.

Sorted. there are prettier ways but that would do the job of nerfing the updates anyway

Ok I have another problem now. Cannot find /etc/updater.conf

nor /usr/bin/process_update

Feel like I must be missing something really obvious :/
