Just tried it and it is working fine. You did run the book through Calibre first correct?

Edited to add: I'm using Calibre 7.52

Just checked my version on Kindle. It is 3.1.

Is the WiFi on your Kindle working OK?

Given there is no jailbreak for 4.2.7, I have not upgraded my OS at this time. Synching between Kindle and iPhone is still working for me with no problems.
I'm on version 4.3.2 on my iphone and it's working good for me. My phone is not jailbroken.

After playing with it some more, it does kind of work still but not reliably.

If you say sync to a certain location, flick back a few pages and then choose to Sync to Furthest Page is it supposed to take you back to where you were? It does this on iPhone and PC but on Kindle it will just say "You are already at the furthest location", which I am not.

Is this still working for everyone? It is working mostly for me, but I can’t get Kindle for PC to sync it’s furthest read location to the cloud. It will retrieve the furthest read location from other devices, but if I read on the PC it doesn’t save that furthest read location when I open on another device. I have tried manually hitting the sync button before closing but that doesn’t help. Any ideas?

@maxpower

Go to "Tools," "Options" in K4PC and make sure you have the option checked for "Annotations Backup."

The exact wording of that option is; "Automatically back up your device annotations and last page read at Amazon." At least that's how it's worded on v1.4.1.

If that is unchecked, K4PC will still pull the Last Page Read that other devices are sending to Amazon, but it won't push its own Last Page Read for the other devices to pull.

Hi, sorry to start here with a question, but I have downloaded the newest version of Calibre (0.8.3), and when I look at the metadata for books in mobi format, I don't see an ASIN I can change. I know it was mentioned earlier that Calibre might be using the UUID of the book to populate the ASIN. I assume that this means it is random, and not the actual ASIN of the book, or does it look that up, and simply not expose it?

If it is random, I assume you want to use mobi2mobi to edit the metadata to the right ASIN in the calibre library so that the book cover is accurate, if you don't manually edit that, right?

Or am I completely clueless?

Thanks!

Cad

You have things correct. Calibre does add an ASIN (based on UUID) when converting to mobi, unless the book already has one. It lacks, though, the ability to view/change the ASIN, though -- for that, you can use mobi2mobi, as you note.

However... if you're only concerned with syncing your Furthest Read Page on non-Amazon mobi's (so you can keep your place while reading on multiple devices), you don't need the correct ASIN. You just need the same data in that ASIN metadata field on all copies of the file that you want to keep in sync. And the UUID that Calibre inserts is sufficient for that purpose.

I've been playing a bit with this in both calibre and mobi2mobi. I got one book syncing between my android phone and my kindle, but when I sideloaded on my ipad it was no dice Then I tried another book on all three and it would not sync whatsoever. This would be most incredible if I could get it to work on a consistent basis.

Are people still getting this to work on sideloaded content on a reliable basis?

Yes.

It will only work on ebooks that you have converted with calibre. If the ebook is already a mobi, you still need to convert it with calibre: just do a mobi to mobi conversion. After conversion, put the exact same file on all devices you want to read it on.
