Salut NiLuJe

I realize that you're probably busy, because you haven't been here in a while...

Anyway, here's the periodic new problem: A new Kindle Paperwhite, with a new serial number. See this post and the 3 or 4 follow-ups...

So, my suggestion is the following: do you think that it makes sense to add a new option which would allow to directly provide a raw serial number (prefix), in addition to the symbolic names... ?

... for example like this:
Code:
kindletool create ota2 -d pw -d pwg -d xB020 files/ update_mystuff.bin
I feel almost ashamed to ask this, but I never really managed to compile kindletool on my own - so I'm relying on your work...

Anyway, as said, I think that providing such an option would also be beneficial in the long run, because it wouldn't require kindletool to always support all the latest devices.

@ixtab: Thanks for the poke (and the link), I wouldn't have noticed it otherwise . I'll do a quick patch/release tonight, and I'll try to implement something like that as soon as I have free time again (namely, next week/month), because, yeah, I can see how it might be helpful ^^.

FWIW, there is a list of as yet unseen in the wild, but valid device IDs that kindletool can support, but it's not built in by default (it's hidden behind the KT_UNKNOWN_DEVID ifdef, which is automatically enabled in debug builds. The one in question here was on this list ).

Exclamation My problem has updated!

Hi guys, I'm trying to make some .bin packages work for my Kindle PW.
Check the process below, and tell-me what I'm doing wrong!

--------------------------
1. Now with the package converted for my brazillian Kindle, I finally put the file "update_python_0.3.N_pwgbr_install.bin" on the device´s root folder and eject the hardware;

2. Went to Settings -> Update Your Kindle (not greyed out)... he asks me to restart to complete the update process, and I touch Ok...
And then, it reboots but I got a "UPDATE ERROR: 3" (check the image below)

What am I doing wrong?

First, get a correct python bundle.
I don't know where your update_python_0.3.N_install.bin comes from but the one from http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=195474 is not a recovery bundle but a classic OTA2 bundle. It also doesn't contain any temp directory.
Then:
Code:
kindletool extract update_python_0.3.N_install.bin temporary_folder
cd temporary_folder
del *.sig
del update-filelist.dat
kindletool create ota2 -d pwgbr * ../update_python_0.3.N_pwgbr_install.bin

Well, the poster is using the Mac OSx version, not the windows version, but I am sure everyone gets the idea.

Are you going to post the Mac OSx binary somewhere ?
Like, maybe, attach to this thread?

That is **exactly** what the KUAL luncher does.
Write your button as a KUAL button - no java involved.
