Kindle Dx International Repackaged Hacks

Hello Forum Members,

With the Dx International Dx coming out this week does anyone know where or when the Kindle hacks will be repackaged for the Kindle DXI?

The screensaver hack as well as usbNetwork and various fonts will be high on the desired list of hacks for new owners, so I am hopeful as well as many others that the powers that be will quickly repack them for our benefit.


Thanks to those who have and can make these miracles possible!

It will probably take a couple of weeks as they need to get their hands on one to do it. Once they cracked the set up with the K2 International which was more sophisticated than the original K2, unless Amazon have changed their security then it wont take them long. They are very clever people.

New Kindle Dx global

Ok, so I received the new Kindle DX Global today and as expected they are shipping them with a new serial number series. B005 is the new series number. I did try the update_screensaverhack-install-dx.bin just to see if it would work and as expected it did not. Grayed-out and on reboot I got the 0003 error. So it does seem all hacks will need to be repackaged for the new DXI.

Hope someone with the skills is listening and willing.

Thanks

What's the software version of your DXi? If it's 2.3, then it's simply a matter of adding the "5" device number to the packaging script and repackaging the current DX screensaver hack.

Software version is 2.3

Yes the software version is 2.3, (399380047) so as you say it would seem to be a simply repacking the hacks and producing a DXi.bin file

Edit: just saw the thread of ppe in the Developer's Corner. Now just ignore this post. I thought we have to edit the whole firmware, but after reading through the packaging comments the packager should work out of the box (update that just adds the necessary files)

Well Jyavenard was nice enough to rebuild the packager to include the Kindle Dx international (global) It is the "developers corner" under the thread "Kindle DX Global Packaging + Signatures". So for all of you who are experienced using the packager there you go. Please post the repackaged hacks as you make them.

Thanks again jyavenard

For those of you who know how to use these.

Screensaver has been use on DXi and works usbNetwork untested so far on DXi. Use at your own risk and install as normal, search threads for install instructions.

Enjoy

I made the unicode font hack installer with Latin/Cyrillic support, based on JYA packager 0.8 and BlogKindle scripts, using combination of GNU and Droid fonts.
All source files are included in the src folder.

Installation procedure remains the same as described in BlogKindle's blog

Installer worked like a charm on my new Kindle DX Global.

Sorry, ignore this attachment - file was too big.
I will post a good file in a minute...
