  • Re-convert to MOBI
  • Sideload to Kindle via usb
  • Sideload to Android via dropbox
on kindle
  • open book and page forward 3 pages
  • home
  • sync & check for items
on Android in kindle app
  • open book
  • sync to last page

on Android, it says at "you are currently at the furthest read location"

I verified that the metadata has ASIN and EBOK:
EXTH item: 113 - ASIN - 36 - 335f3094-ab66-45dd-8938-367986269d03
EXTH item: 501 - CDEContentType - 4 - EBOK
I don't have a Android phone so don't know, but can you sideload the book through USB. I think the problem is that you are sideloading it via Dropbox. I know with the iPhone it has to be put in a specific folder and this can be done by sideloading through USB on the computer. I use DiskAid for this. Other methods of sideloading put the books in the wrong folder, thus they won't sync.

I tried loading via usb and that didn't work either. maybe I'm not putting it in the correct folder. I tried the kindle folder and the android\data\com.amazon.kindle folders

I don't know how the file structure on Android works. On the iPhone the books must be put in the Kindle\Library\eBooks folder. Maybe someone with an Android phone could chime in.

kindle folder (on your SD card) is the correct one. Make sure you don't have a file with the same name somewhere else. Best would be to start with a new one as someone suggested.

Is there any way to side load books into the kindle cloud reader for chrome and have them sync?
