Pushed a set of release packages. Mostly making sure FW 5.6.x is handled correctly.

Again -- Amazon changed everything, you cannot install things by putting them in the root and using Update Your Kindle, anymore.
Thanks for your help! I figured it out (finally).

Kindle Touch Screensaver Hack Stopped?

Hi,

Thanks to all those who've helped with creating the great hack.

It's been working for me for a few years and now seems to have stopped. Kindle tells me it's on 5.3.7.3. I presume somehow it's updated itself.

Tried a reinstall, no luck.
Tried an uninstall, and reinstall, no luck.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

@AddledBadger: JB hotfix + MRPI? (cf. the JB doc).

It will be interesting to see what all they found/fixed as a "bug".
The update_*.bin file is 114Mbytes - so they found something to change.

I am almost afraid to let my K2/K3 devices go "on-line" for what may happen to them.

Refreshed the packages in the first post with a hotfix for an issue that broke installs when not using MRPI.

Thanks, these steps worked for me to restore the screensaver hack (Kindle Touch)

Okay, that worked, thanks for the pointers.

For any other Noobs [like me], here's the steps I took the get my screensaver hack back working again:

Hotfix (Presumably, this re-initialised the Jailbreak)
Downloaded, and followed instructions to install:
JailBreak-1.14.N-FW-5.6.x-hotfix.zip
from:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...postcount=1597

KUAL (Kindle Unified Application Launcher)
Downloaded, and followed instructions to install:
KUAL-v2.5.zip
from:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=203326

MRPI (MobileRead Package Installer)
Downloaded, and followed instructions to install:
kual-mrinstaller-1.6.N.zip
from:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=251143

Screensaver Hack
Downloaded, and followed instructions to install:
kindle-linkss-0.24.N.zip and
kindle-python-0.14.N-touch_pw1.zip
from:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=195474

Hope that helps someone!

That's done the trick for me. Tried this yesterday, but after installing the customer screensaver bin I still had defaults. Tried again today with fresh files and custom screensavers are working. Thanks again NiLuJe!

In my case I didn't need anything more than the vanilla process:
Copy jailbreak bin to root, update.
Copy screensaver bin to root, update.

No hotfix, no KUAL, no MRPI, no python (didn't need the features).
Simple as. Really great, simple hack guys!
