hmm.. Tha bash I built works fine on the DX... thinking...

With just the single initial stepk adjustment the original parse.sh does run on all devices - Including the DX - as an interim solution...

Since this solution is NOT requiring additional software until the other parsing script supports the 1.7.2 we are forced to go with that for now.

Anyway, because the application depends on a few prerequisites: I'm attaching installers (and uninstallers) for those prerequisites for K3 and K4 devices. They have been tested and are proven to work on my personal devices, but I can't guarantee anything. If you experience any problems, please report back.
could we have: (would it work on the dx? I could just repack)

Quote:
-d, --device dx Kindle DX US
-d, --device dxi Kindle DX International
-d, --device dxg Kindle DX Graphite

and maybe all the Touch and PW models too? Does that make sense? Cheers
as well please? I think we can support them

For the 0.2.0 Release I will include what we have for now and continue to point to the touch prerequisites externally.

Indeed. The DX ash you posted is the same version of the K3 ash, though the binary files differ.

The K2i people will have to hold their breathe : D

AFAIR, the DX/K2/K2i firmware is pretty much identical, so it should work there too .

Top job. 1.7.2 is the baseline then. Good to know.

FIXME:
Looks like only one param (the 1st) is being passed rather than the full list from a script.

Symptoms:
This will make the Prevent Screensaver script not work from HELPER

Resolution:
Feel free to point fingers shell gurus If someone catches it I will push the update.
I'll get round to it when that happens, when I can or it will get "fixed" by the stepk update, whichever comes soonest.

Device: Too many.
On Kpw 5.3.1 -

Grab the Kindle Paperwhite Jailbreak.
Follow readme directions to install.
According to log file - that took 36 seconds.

Grab the Amazon 5.3.1 -> 5.3.3 update.
Follow the Amazon update instructions.
(and expect that update to wipe-out the Kindlet Dev. Keys)

Grab the version-0.2 launcher.
Follow the directions in the readme file.
(Including creating the Kindle:/extensions folder.)

Touch the document "Kindle Launcher"
Launcher reports that the Kindlet (Developer Keys) Jailbreak are not installed.
(The expected result at this point.)

** at which point - we need an intermission of some very fine guitar picking**
Spoiler:

(2-1/2 minutes of Slash doing an Alice Cooper solo.)


Next, grab the Kindlet-Jailbreak : http://ge.tt/3ZRY9XE/v/71
Follow the readme instructions to install.

Bingo - A working launcher with a blank list that matches the empty extensions directory.

Next - try the "Helper" scripts - -
- - - FIXED for Kpw - - - but not tested at this point in the post.

Next - try kTerm http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=202794
Grabs 0.4 - Unzip - copy folder under extensions - eject device - tap launcher - tap kTerm - it just works.
Not much can be said against that! (This **IS** Kpw-5.3.3)!

Next - grab Collections Manager (2.3.3) -
Unzip - move the *.azw2 and the *.png to the documents directory - eject - find in home menu - tap - it just works.

Enough for tonight - scroll up - un-spoil Slash - get some good mood music in your ears.

**Next intermission - possibly the greatest keyboard riff ever recorded**
Spoiler:


After a bit of a break, like more than two days . . .

Remove the old version-0.2.0 launcher 'book' from documents and delete it's helper sub-directory under extensions.
Unpack the version-0.2.1 launcher - put in the documents folder.
Unpack the newer (fixed up) helper sub-directory under extensions.
Eject USB storage device.
Like magic, the diagnostic query(ies) now work on the Kpw-5.3.3 (that 711 thing).


Grab the kindle-usbnet-0.7.N.zip package from:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=186645
Don't believe that title - that thread is also the home of the USBnetwork package, scroll down to the attachments.

un-zip the package to a local directory on your PC.
Read the README_FIRST.txt file. This is a test, you must pass it.
Is there anything mentioned in there about networking administration you don't know? Well, like the author says, then don't use this package.

Place the 'install' package on root of USB storage, eject USB storage, un-plug the cable since you are about to mess with the cable's hardware interface . . . .
Do the usual: home -> menu -> settings -> menu -> update Kindle routine.

When the Kindle completes its update, still with the USB cable dis-connected, try:
Kindle Launcher -> 711 (Network Info.)
** Which now does not work - it worked just prior to this installation! **
There be a bug that needs squashing here (twobob is on it), see:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=246

** Guess we need another intermission here. **
A little traveling music for the thinker:
Spoiler:


Setting up the USBnetwork interface is now described in a new thread:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=204450

Note: All music in this post is 'twobob approved' listening.

Hi. Due to the way they will be called as a resource from inside the kindlet.

Whilst quite frankly brilliant, it would be simpler to provide only a lowest-common-denominator script. The vast %age of startup slowdown is kindlet instantiation and though 350% faster the complications of knitting dynamically loaded scripts outweigh the gains. Also the overhead and delay in processing the creation and destruction of multiple temp files would be a negative.

So. Just a single, lowest common denominator script please. Sorry. I feel really bad saying this... But the way scripts are fired makes this impractical. Script Names are also created dynamically as an extra complication...

Excellent work though by the way. (super script skills)

EDIT: I just stuck one together from what you provided.
nice and clean code by the way.

launcher shows "action" tag instead of "name" tag

Hi everyone,
I have one question: The Application Launcher only shows me the script name, but not the "title" that is defined in the config.xml. For example, here it lists:
Code:
Helper: bin/411.sh
Helper: bin/ssallow.sh
...
kterm: bin/kterm
I can launch kterm (the others I haven't tried), but I saw in the menu.json that there is a tag "name" but instead the tag "action" is shown.

Is this a known problem on my device?

(KPW 5.3.3, all the latest kindlets etc, transfer from a Unix file system by unpacking on the laptop and transfer with cp -a to the Kindle)

Thanks

Norbert
