You may have to uninstall and reinstall your screensaver hack, at least I did.

Unfortunately not working for me.. I'm on 5.3.1 Jailbroken PW with the custom fonts hack applied, I tried your method but it only displays the default one.. When I copy png's to the screensaver folder it auto renames them to bg_medium_ss00, bg_medium_ss01 etc.. but wont display any custom screensavers when I hit the power button, any workaround for this?

withmenilu, have you rebooted (N.B. Rebooted not reset) the kindle?
Does it display that it's checking screensavers whilst it's rebooting.
Where did you get the Kindle from?

Excellent. I found it worth the price to unsubscribe, too.

had the screensavers hack working on kindle paperwhite 5.3.4 (without advertising). Now it is not working. The correct cover is in the linkss folder and the empty file cover is there. but it shows a quote from murakami, which admittedly is not as bad as some of the previous ones i had to suffer, but it is still not what i want.

do i have to uninstall and reinstall? is there an easier way?

Try uninstall and reinstall. It shouldn't remove the folder.
Have you tried Rebooting (note not resetting) the kindle?

I need someone's help. I just installed the screensavers hack and I've uploaded my screensavers into linkss->screensavers (where I saw the 'you can delete me image' which states that the screensavers hack has been successfully installed) and have restarted my Kindle Paperwhite but I still get the default images when I put my Kindle in standby mode.

The images are PNG files, 758x1024, grayscale.

Originally yes, but I opted out of special offers when I first got it.

Interesting.

There have been reports that Amazon has had problems with changing the SO status of Kindles.
Are the ads gone now or did they come back ?

I don't recall what the solution was for the folks that reported the problem, nor do I recall the links on this forum to those posts.

Of course, this may not be the cause of your problem, it might be something I didn't recognize in your description.

The ads did not come back since I removed them. I don't know why I'm still getting the default screensavers I followed the steps and like I stated earlier, I saw the image that says that the hack was successfully installed so there shouldn't be any problems.

Have you done a restart (menu->settings->restart) without the usb cable attached? It will not pickup the new images until you do a restart...

I did do a restart but I'm not sure if I had the cable attached or not. I think it was. Does it really make a difference?
