Curiously, I'm not getting the wake up delay that other people are seeing, it wakes up instantly for me, even after sleeping for a long time. It seems like maybe it's just never going to sleep, and something's pegging the CPU? It's unlikely to be indexing, as I've only put 3 books on it.
Dig around a bit here - I seem to recall there being a bad font library that causes the Kindles to "hang" rather than sleep.

Sorry I don't remember the details or the key words you should search for (truetype problems? maybe).

P.S. You just got a 2600 karma upgrade.

Yeah mine was changed to 3.3 awhile ago. Frankly audio has crackles. I tried a bit of some free audio books from audible and it is just hard to listen to even with earbuds. Then again mine is a DX so listening to one isn't that easy when compared to a smaller mp3 player. Audible is largely with drm (didn't know that) so frankly there's only a few players that can play it.

TBH even the 3 has some serious stumbles when it comes to the audio.

The card takes like FOREVER to initialise,
(longer than twice the maximum cache length time just to be extra awkward to program for) : )

There are pops and sniffles even then when it plays.

I haven't really dug around in the audio on the DXG that much (I wasn't holding out much hope after hearing the 3) - It could be something as simple as a poorly written/managed/implemented driver/service/conduit/something of course. Or perhaps it really is a big ask to do the RT audio with the rest of the junk hanging around.

Either way, the fact that even the 3 has oopsies should put the DX(G)'s performance in context.

See my experiences to 3.4:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=196495

KF8 is the only thing that is not working.

I don't believe webkit library and kernel updates have anything to do with KF8 support. The log says unrecognized format when I tried to open a KF8 mobi file. Hopefully other expert can help to resolve this.

When I was mucking around with the DXG under 3.3 from a K3 I had no battery problems, as long as the 3G was switched off. With 3G, the battery was empty inside a day or two. I eventually gave up and went back to the stock DXG firmware, 3.3 was just too flaky for me. YMMV.

I have an K3KB with 3.4 no 3.1 and a DXG

Can I install a 3 Firmware to the DXG?
Or do I need a K3KB with 3.1 or 3.3?

Looks like I will have to go that route. It's just that the K3g isn't really mine...I gave it to my son. Would hate to brick it :-)

k3flasher is pretty solid. must have done it tens of times now.

But yes. there is always the risk when a change occurs that things may go wrong.

Get the right files. get the right tools. get a plan. follow it exactly. should be okay.

Just one:
Where are you getting your 3.4 packaged for the DX ?

The series 3.x firmware, as used on the DX, is a cross-breed of the DX and K3 kernel & firmware.
Have you already "mixed and matched" 2.5.8 and 3.4 so it can be used on your DX?

We can't provide any such Update_*_.bin file here, as it would contain copyrighted materials we don't have permission to re-distribute.
Which is why you have to do the "mix and match" of the files yourself from images of devices you own.

Smile KUAL on Kindle DXG with 3.2.1 firmware

I could not get USBNETWORK to work on the DXG with 3.2.1
I used Launchpad instead.
Copy the deviceHack to the root of your Kindle DXG

create devhack.ini in the Launchpad folder with the following:

[Actions]
;; run devicehack runme
A A = !/mnt/us/deviceHack/runme

Press Shift Shift Space
Then press Shift A A

This worked for me

** I had to install certificates and install kindlet jailbreak again
** Also, did not have to use "runme install"

P.S. I'm a noob, and have no idea how the above worked, so you'll have to work it out if the above steps dont work for you.

Good luck!
OOPs! wrong thread but hope it helps anyway

At the time that KUAL was released, I do not think anyone had a cross-breed DX/K3-firmware test device.

Thanks for reporting the trouble with KUAL and that device/firmware combination.
