Hi guys,

can you confirm that the simple custom screensaver hack (not the book cover screensaver) will NOT work on version 3.5.3 (my serial number is B024 XXXXXXX).

I tried to install the update_linkss_0.7.N_install.bin and install it via the settings page, but the update it greyed out. I don't need to install the python bin because I only want the simple screensaver right?

Did you install the python script? I did not and the option update was greyed out. How did you install it?

IE you couldn't install things for an "unknown reason" because Niluje is Ninja...

I have to say that his work is solider than a marble statue.
So... I dunno but I have never had anything of his let me down. That I can remember.

I'm disliking the duokan OS more and more due to these issues, even though it is a nice OS. Once I deinstalled Duokan and the screensavers appeared.

Guess the duokan will stay off my device for now.

Not to be a naysayer: But, I just gave up Duokan very early. Too much I could not dig into, no real support, odd issues with no obvious cause. Bleugh.

python is self-contained in its own directory, so just delete it.

I have found the simple screensaver hack to be compatible with all versions of both Touch and PW. Easy to install, uninstall and reinstall when needed.

Thanks everyone for all your work and help to make these things go well for amateurs like me. I always feel accomplished when I get these customizations and hacks working.

I do have one polite suggestion, in the screensaver hack instructions, it may help others to have the 'unplug during restart' requirement more prominently stated. I had to dig into the comments here to figure that out. Amateur as I am, I would have never thought that it would make a difference to unplug my Kindle.

Everything else worked like a charm. You all are great.

screensaver not working

Hi there,

I have a Paperwhite which I purchased at Staples with special offers, but subsequently paid to have removed. I jailbroke, installed python and the screensavers, and the hack didn't work. Then did the whole process again after uninstalling and it still didn't work. Just shows the standard letters screensaver that started appearing after I removed offers.

I read the initial postings vis a vis the Special Offers as saying that if you hadn't removed the special offers by paying to do so, the hack wouldn't work. But was it in fact saying that if you have a Special Offers kindle the hack will never work, even if you have removed the ads?

Or have I just done something else wrong?

Many thanks,
hberry

It doesn't matter as long as you've paid and opted out of Special Offers then the hack should work. I don't know what you're doing wrong, did you do a restart?( without the cable plugged).

Yes I did a restart without the cable plugged in. I did the installs however with the cable in. Would that have affected it ?

For the record I am trying to use the cover (last book opened) mode.

Touch & PaperWhite ScreenSavers Hack

Every time you do a restart, unplugging the cable is necessary.

Have you created the blank 'cover' folder?

After the installation, did you see an image in the screensaver folder that says installation successful?

Make sure the images size and format are right.
