Nothing runs in KUAL

I can't run anything in KUAL. I can toggle the switches, but when I press on the buttons (e.g. switch to DouBan, Start File Manager, kterm) nothing happens.

My firmware version is 5.0.0 and I've jailbroken it without problems...have no idea what is going on!

Hallo, ich nutze seit etwa einem Jahr KUAL auf meinen PW (B024...). Bis auf die Akku-App ohne Probleme. Danke dafür!
Jetzt kam vor einigen Tagen ein Update auf FW 5.6.1.1 heraus, und seitdem funktioniert KUAL nicht mehr. Ich habe MKK neu installiert und auch die KUAL-KDK-2.0.azw2 in den Dokumentenordner kopiert. Trotzdem läuft KUAL nicht mehr. Es kommt folgende Fehlermeldung:
"Beim Öffnen des Inhalts ist ein Fehler aufgetreten. Falls das Problem weiterhin besteht, wenden Sie sich bitte an den Kindle-Kundenservice unter www.kindle.com/support."
Was kann ich tun, damit KUAL wieder läuft? Danke!

Grüße aus Deutschland, Icke

Hello, I am using on my PW (B024 ...) for about a year kual. Except for the battery app with no problems. Thanks for that!
Now came a few days ago an update to FW 5.6.1.1 out, and since kual no longer works. I MKK reinstalled and also copies the kual-KDK-2.0.azw2 in the Documents folder. Nevertheless kual no longer running. It comes following error message:
"An error occurred while opening the contents. If the problem persists, contact the Customer Service under www.kindle.com/support Kindle."
What can I do to make kual running again? Thanks!

Greetings from Germany, Icke

That sounds as if 5.6.1.1 on the PW-1 does not support "Active Documents".

We still don't have enough reports to say if that is generally true of 5.6.1.1

Nor do we know if it was intentional or accidental.
It is rumored to be intentional but Lab126 has killed Active Documents by accident in the past.

- - - -

The only currently known solution is to use the serial port to downgrade the firmware.

On the other hand, we've just had a bugreport on KOReader from someone successfully running KUAL on 5.6.1.1, so, all is not lost...

On a PW1 or on a PW3?
Ref: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=262279

- - - -

I know that the Amazon site **claims** those devices use the same 5.6.1.1 build, but one arrives as an OTA package and the other gets installed by the initial factory install.

Because of the different firmware production paths and QA between providing the factory with initial installation packages and providing the customers of an older device with an OTA installation package, there is a good chance that those two **are** different builds.
(Different SoC and Processor also.)

Those who have been following this story know that Amazon was nice enough to ship me that initial factory install package for the PW3 (and KT2).
And of course the PW1 update package is publicly posted by Amazon.

It would be possible to test if those images are binary identical, which would not tell us much if they aren't binary identical.
They still might be functionally identical, which is best determined by customer reports from experience with the actual devices -
Of course that requires that the customer tell us which device they have.

After updating to 5.6.1.1 - KUAL and Koreader worked fine on my KPW1.
But I made hard reset =)
And now can't start KUAL - "This device is not authorized as a test Kindle by developer of this item."
in KUAL logs: "com.mobileread.ixtab.kindlelauncher.KualKindl et: Target device is not a test device"
(I tried put mkk directory to KPW root directory, restart KPW - no effect)

That should have un-installed everything outside of the USB storage area.

First:
See if your jailbreak survived by using MrPi to install the MKK package.
See: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=225030
KUAL section for the files.
Note you will need xz tools to unpack those archives.

If your jailbreak did not survive - try the most recently posted "hot fix" to restore the jailbreak.

Then repeat the above (if required, the "hot fix" might also "fix" MKK for you).
