I still have trouble syncing my current location from kindle for pc to my other devices. It syncs fine to the pc application, just not from it. All other syncing between devices works fine.

Am I the only one with this problem? I don't think it is a firewall issue because it works fine with books purchased from amazon.

OMG I had no idea this was working! lol
So I just converted all my books to mobi and fetch metedata and sideloaded (which I take to mean copy by usb cable using calibres send to device) and opened a book and moved it ahead a few pages... went to menu, (this is on k3 and pc) then went on my pc opened the same file I sideloaded synced it to last page read and it worked... i then moved forward a few pages on my pc went back to the library main page. then went on my k3 and synced it and guess what? it worked !!!
This has made my day! Gees It was a pain going from 1 app to another continually finding my last page read... ahhh bliss

anyway, do I have to sideload or would sending it by email/wifi work?

Emailing it to your Kindle breaks everthing. It must be sideloaded.

DiapDealer: thanks

I was trying it out while you posted and yep your are correct. it does not work. I had to delete the copy on my k3 and sideload it for it to work.

Being inconvenienced once during the sideload or upto 20 times finding the lpr manualy... I'll choose the sideloading option everytime.

Awesome! thanks

I agree, it's definitely worth it. I just got a Nook Color, which I rooted and put the Kindle app on. All I had to do was make a folder called "kindle" on my sd card, put the book files in there and the app recognized them and they synced perfectly!

I've started having issues with sideloading. I convert my books to mobi through Calibre, download the metadata, and sideload to both my Kindle and my iPhone 4s. The Whispersync synchronization is NOT working for me. Anyone else having some issues with the sideloading after Calibre conversion?

How are your loading the books to your iPhone. They must be loaded to the Kindle\Library\eBooks folder for this to work. DiskAid is a good program to do this and they now have a free version.

I've been using DiskAid for almost a year. I wonder if I'm NOT dropping the books in the eBook folder. I'll have to check. I think that you can read booksfrom either the Library or eBook folder. I'll check it later. Thanks.

In order for them to sync, they have to be loaded to the Kindle\Library\eBooks folder.

@dmspen Try iExplorer, it's free for Mac and PCs. Run iExplorer, select apps, find Kindle app, copy to Documents folder.

I tried iExplorer and it wouldn't work on my system. DiskAid however works fine for me.

Still some issues

I found one issue. The books in my Kindle were in folders. I put them directly into the Documents folder and was able to get sync. I still have one book that refuses to sync across any device. I will try to ro-Calibre it and see what happens.

Does it work for books converted with Calibre? I thought to sync you need the ASIN to be in the format B00xxxxxxx. I use Mobi2Mobi to modify mine.

Great Stuff!
Worked out of the box.

Since my iPhone is jailbroken, i'm using the AppleFileServer-Package for deploying the mobi-files.
I've made an symlink to the Kindle.App-Folder (via ssh of course) for easy navigating.
/var/mobile/eBooks -> /var/mobile/Applications/D075B630-668F-46B7-BF7E-9F5B5F81F0C3/Library/eBooks/

The only caveat is, that the kindle-app doesn't support subfolders.

cheers
