Ah. will do! (I already made sure I was up to date on the tools - but thanks )

I am digging around in the kindleDummy thing and the combined dev-certs example. Hopefully I will have more fortune with more examples. Brain.. going.. too... slow... ; )

No. I've just put "permission java.io.FilePermission "/mnt/us/-", "read,write,execute";" to /opt/amazon/ebook/security/external.policy when tried KindleVNC or KindleTerm. But all this permissions stuff still looks misty for me. Even if I grant "permission java.io.FilePermission "<<ALL FILES>>", "read,write,execute";" for all kindlets, I still cannot execute anything except scripts in /mnt/us. Even simple Runtime.getRuntime().exec("/bin/ls/") returns "java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission /bin/ls execute)".

@drauger: exactly. And that's what the Kindlet jailbreak is there for. It allows Kindlets to request Permissions at runtime, it allows them to load classes which are normally "forbidden" to Kindlets... and it does not require the modification of the system's security policy files. Some background information is here. And now let's get back on topic.

FWIW I did that once last year too, this way is less hassle

@twobob: much too complicated for end users . Everything "ota2" supports multiple devices, so should be done like that (with the exception that you can't mix k4 and k5). But essentially, it's enough to provide ONE file for ALL Touch/Paperwhite users, and one file for all K4 users. Check the devcerts or "rescue pack" files that I published for Touch devices for examples

Matters are different for the K3 ("ota"), where each device needs its own installer... at least AFAIK.

See the attached sources, and it should be pretty clear.

Thanks. I did notice the aliases. and the ota2 multiple device spec. Appreciate the assist.
Spoiler:

I was doing a

for TYPE in k2 k2i dx dxi dxg k3w k3g k3gb; do kindletool create ota -C -d `echo -n $TYPE` ./ ../update-install-kindlet-jailbreak-`echo -n $TYPE`.bin; done

and

for TYPE in k5w k5g k5gb pw pwg pwgb k4 k4b pwgc ; do kindletool create ota2 -C -d `echo -n $TYPE` ./ ../update-install-kindlet-jailbreak-`echo -n $TYPE`.bin; done

I see your way makes more sense with the serial number linkage. Thanks Will have a go now.


EDIT: Okay so I think I have it now. I will just go check one of the 3 un-installers/installers - for sanities sake - before I share.

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! **
*** WTF? ***

** Guess we need another intermission while I confer with authors. **
....
Hmm... I suspect here there be dragons. but not related to the installation. actually I think it's something to do with instantiating the 711 window. I can replicate your fail now... (intermittently - trying to tie down what kills it) And I can "fix" it, (go to settings page - type ;711, now close it, try script again, it works) Definitely dragons. Will have a serious think about making those scripts do something solid and helpful on all devices now that the final push on device support is POSSIBLY at an end. *fingers crossed*

Thanks for the report. on the pile to fix. for sure.

Investigating achieving a "known state". Possibly the stop() not firing "as expected" is having an impact. Needs further DERPing.

Egggs are ready.

pun intended. Designed to look a wee bit more swanky on the lower devices' "about" pages.

Hello.

I have a Kindle touch with FW 5.3.2.

I jailbreak(ed) my Kindle using the instructions here.

Following the instructions on the thread, I first created an extensions folder on the root of the drive and then proceeded to copy "update_k5_ALL_PW_ALL_kindlet_jailbreak_install.bi n" and "update_k5_ALL_PW_ALL_devcerts_install.bin" and updated.

Now I get an error that says "The update was unsuccessful." and "Update Error: 3".

What am I doing wrong?

If it helps, I have the custom screensaver from Yifan Lu installed.

You are probably restarting the Kindle rather than using the "Update Kindle" menu entry.

What knc1 said. Choose "Update your Kindle" from the "Settings" screen.

Without being too annoyingly technical: the key "checked" by just restarting the device as opposed to choosing "Update your kindle" is the wrong one.
