Kindle Paperwhite 2

Thank you for sharing this application.

I want to buy an e-reader but I hesitate a lot because in want it to read PDFs, more or them, scientific papers. (and no, i don't want a tablet).

After watching a lot of videos and reading forums, finally the kindlepdfviwer you developed seems to me the best current option.

But, before buying my e-reader, i just wanted to know if the KPV works on the new kindle paperwhite 2 or if will work soon for this version of kindle.

Thanks for your advice!. (and sorry if you already answered my question, I searched on this topic but i did not find anything about it... )

Thank you.
What benefits would you have, I wonder. ?

I'm thinking of going into uncharted territory iwith my Kindle DX-G:

Should I start with launchpad or Kite?

Any advice, help, or bricks need to be thrown my way, please.

Do you have a reason to not use KUAL ?

KUAL is intended for all Kindle devices, **except** the original K1.

I have to plead complete ignorance on all of this, as I have not kept up with any of it.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Bit biased here, obviously, but, yeah, KUAL has a couple of advantages (as knc1 mentioned, portability, plus it's actively maintained, and despite a completely different design from kite or launchpad, I'd say it's more powerful) .

Anyway, after that bit of marketing done (;p), what are your goals exactly, so we can steer you in the right direction? (You're welcome to checkout the 'Where Do I Start' sticky to give you an idea of what to expect).

Err, that said, since you're in the KPV thread, I'm guessing KPV? .

First, thanks to all who have responded.

Briefly:

I wish only to have better control (viewing options) when reading PDFs.

I also do not wish to compromise the mobi viewing, which I'm very happy with on this device.

Thanks!

KPV hasn't been updated in a year, because the focus moved to KOReader, so there might be some bumps on the road.

https://github.com/koreader/koreader...allation-Guide
And the first post of this thread should cover it.

The latest nighly build *should* ship with a KUAL extension. If it doesn't, grab a koreader Kindle nightly and pilfer the extensions folder from there, the script is completely backwards-compatible (unless I messed up :x).

EDIT: No, don't do that, while the KOReader extensions does handle legacy devices, it's not exactly made for KPV, so it won't work without minor tweaks. (mostly fixing the paths).

CORRECTION: I actually meant mobi files and NOT epub files, from my post above.

Now corrected.

It was pretty obvious, because Kindle DX can read epub only after installation of kindlepdfviewer or another third party app.

There is no reason to worry about mobi functionality because you should first leave kindlepdfviewer (takes just a couple of seconds) getting back to native mobi/pdf reader.

Here is installation procedure (using launchpad) probably a little better explained for novices.

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=190641

Don't unzip kindlepdfviewer file in step 3.

Download links:

jailbreak

launchpad

kpv
https://github.com/koreader/kindlepd.../wiki/Download


Later, if you want, you can also (as I did) install Liberator(another version), and use it simultaneously with already installed basic kindlepdfviewer thereon, without any issues I guess.

Thanks for the above, but I'm having difficulty finding the specific jailbreak for the Kindle DX-G, running system 2.5.8


Also, if disaster strikes (or if I decide to completely revert back to a 'clean' 2.5.8 system, will there be any difficulty in doing so?


Thanks.


ADDED: I think I found it. Is this the name of the file for the Kindle DX-G:

kindle-jailbreak-0.11.N.zip file

I now see that this is the one. Do I also install [add] the 'uninstall' .bin file, as well?

Close.
But close only counts in horseshoes, nuclear weapons and Windows.

The second attachment.

Which is a *.zip archive.

Open the archive and inside find files with names like:
Update_jailbreak_0.12.N_dxg_install.bin
Update_jailbreak_0.12.N_dxg_uninstall.bin

Put **Only One** Update_*.bin file on the device at a time.

Also _dx_ and _dxi_ filenames.
