I confirm written NiLuJe about the Paperwhite.

+ It's necessary to exclude processing of external dictionaries folder:
/mnt/us/documents/dictionaries/

Folder contents automatically joins to built-in collection "Dictionaries".
Simply delete the "dictionaries" collection

The kindlet jailbreak the OP links to is deleted automatically by my Paperwhite so I can't update.
Hmm, the developer certificate bundle wouldn't install either, but I've got the "You are Jailbroken" document. Oh and KindCalc works perfectly.
I used Jailbreak 1.5N and hadn't installed USBnet, which when I just tried was deleted as well.
Looks like I may need to shift this into the Jailbreak thread as I can't use the 1.5 uninstall, it's also deleted automatically.
<scratching head>

Thank you

<edited to offer more information>

@Akirainblack: How recent is your Touch? (And what does your S/N begin with?)

Hello Nijule,
As mentioned I've shifted this to the jailbreak thread as it's more appropriate there.
Thank you for answering.

Hi.

I'm a complete newbie at this, but need to get my collections sorted out. I thought I had sussed it but must have something wrong or mis-understood part of the instructions.

1. I have jailbroken my paperwhite, installed kindlet, and the certificates all fine.#
2. I went to the calibre plugins and installed the Kindle Collections' plugin.

I have downloaded the patch here, but don't know how to install it.

What else exactly do I need to do?

Any help is very appreciated.

EDIT: I just found out I had to run the 'import from calibre' through the collections manager on the kindle for it all to run properly. My bad.

@Lester_Bangs:

* Install the plugin (not the patch, the patch's for the dev) attached in the post you linked to. (It'll replace the official release).

* Configure the plugin to your liking (while the device is plugged in).

* Run it (create collections from Calibre)

* Eject your Kindle. Launch Collections Manager, pop its menu up, swipe down to scroll to the bottom of the menu, click 'Import collections from Calibre'.

Hi NiLuJe,

Thanks. It was the 'launch collections manager I was getting stuck with. I was looking for it in Calibre, not on the kindle. D'oh.

Quick question.

If I have the collection order number set in Calibre, will the kindle then show them in the correct order?

@Lester_Bangs: Provided (you|the autodetection code) set the right model in the plugin settings, and I didn't get it wrong, mostly, yes. (I say mostly because the sorting order on the plugin side might not be completely accurate for the Touch/PaperWhite, especially regarding the case. Too much of a hassle to investigate how to get it right). The most important part (what to prefix a collection with to get it on top when sorting by title) should be accurate though (and on the PW, you don't have much choice anymore on that front: a single quote, or a digit).

If I use kindletools to extract the kindlet-jailbreak and repack it with all the touch/paperwhites listed as devices should that work as is?
I've done it but am slightly wary of flashing it to my Kindle as I'm rather new to this.
Thanks,

@Akirainblack: Yup. If you want to be super-safe, just convert it, don't even unpack/rebuild it.

(By which I mean: .bin to .tar.gz [convert] then .tar.gz to .bin [create]).

In this specific case, there's no model/version specific logic, and it already supports the PW, so there's not much risk of doing anything wrong, it's simply copying a file .

Which switch do I need to use to convert it I just tried with the -w and it created another bin with the term unwrapped.

@Akirainblack: None . (The -w/--unwrap switch is another thing entirely, it strips the package signature header from a signed ota2/recover2 package. It's a convenience feature of a somewhat limited use ^^).

Code:
kindletool convert update_kindlet-jailbreak-20121007_install.bin
kindletool create ota2 -d pwgb update_kindlet-jailbreak-20121007_install.{tar.gz,.bin}
(manually expand my shiny brackets construct on the create line if you happen to use a crappy shell ).
