Isn't it an official forum recommendation NOT to use rar?

@eschwartz: It's also a forum requirement not to let me use decent compression algorithms/formats, and limiting uploads to 20MB, so, kind of stuck on that one .

Huh, what about that.

Perhaps add a note somewhere about the need for programs which can unpack rar. I mean, the only reason zip gets used so much is because it is built into Windows. I would guess there will be people who don't know how to unpack it.

Like the way you warn people of the need for 7-zip/tar, in the snapshots thread.

The legacy stuff has been using rar archives since pretty much the beginning, and I've hardly ever had anyone complaining about it, so I'm going to assume rar support is fairly ubiquitous, even in Windows-land .

(Hell, I remember stuff being shared as multi-part rar archives on freaking floppy disks ;D).

As far as I know, that was just me sounding off about not using licensed, for-fee archivers.

* The de-compressor(s) is(are) Open Source but some of the compression routines remain closed and licensed.

What we **should** do is get that list of acceptable filename extensions updated.
Lots of luck with that, I haven't heard from Alex for over a year.

Good enough for me.
I meant the Kindle Developers Corner subforum.

The size is somewhat of an issue though -- for a set of archive formats, it is bizarre that ZIP and RAR have a 20 MB cap, GZ has a 15 MB cap, and BZ2 has a 5 MB cap!!!

Good luck contacting him. He has posted in response to the server migration, in the announcements subforum.

The problem is i can't install it again, because when i eject the device the .bin file is deleted automatically . I tried not to eject the device and restart it , but it doesn't install it . How can i make it work ? Thank you

You cannot. See the last few posts in the jailbreak thread.

tl;dr -- that upgrade is evil, it was warned aginst, and now you're screwed unless you know how to use a serial port.

@arad26: Like @eschwartz, I'm assuming you're talking past tense, before the updated JailBreak came out.

In which case, yup, what he said .

On the other hand, if you are doing stuff in the right order, and you were running JB >= 1.13.N before updating, just update KUAL and use the MR Installer to update the SS hack.
