Thanks In advanced, RealBigSwede

PS In the descriptions I see all the other Kindles names and can't finer the PaperWhite

For the purposes of this particular hack the answer is yes.

You want the other tread

EDIT: Under "the hood" they run the same core processor.

Get a touch. Rip the soundcard out, stick a light on it, up the screen res. voila a paperwhite.

i couldn't get through usbnetworking

hi, sorry if I'm cross-posting, but i want to install fonts, too.

i'm using kindle paper-white running 5.3.1 jail-broken with ixtab's kpw_jb.zip and after than i mounted kindle and copied files to kindle from kindle-usbnet-0.6.N.zip. When I do update device kindle first updates the device and says update successful than it restarts and tries to update some more and gives update error:3 and asks me to hold on to the power button to restart.

I couldn't figure what I'm doing wrong or is it the normal process. if you please enlighten me on it or direct me to the proper location for info I would really appreciate it.

I apologize again if this is the wrong thread to post this question - I will kindly ask mods to move it to proper thread if it is.

I just uninstalled the fonts hack 4.6 from my K3W. Can I install 5.6 without updating my jailbreak? Running jailbreak 0.6

Wink excuse the noob

hi there,

I would like to know if one must jailbreak the device first, in order to use the screensaver hack?

and what is the chance of bricking the device?

thank you

Known issue. I should have searched before posting.

Does anyone know how to uninstall the Python package? I see the other files have a uninstall, but the Python does not.

Just delete it.
That one does not have (or need) anything else.

you could check your $PATH is unaffected (not sure what the installer actually does) but either way it shouldn't hurt to have a deal folder(s) link(s) in there...

Duh . . .

YOU do not unpack the files!
The KINDLE unpacks the files.

Home -> Menu -> Settings -> Menu -> Update your Kindle

If the "update" entry is grayed out - something is wrong - ask for help before doing anything else other than re-reading the directions with whatever package you are trying to install.

Have you looked at the attachments to the first post of this thread yet?

Hi . Read the docs. Tell me where in the docs you are getting stuck.
