@Radish.: Nope, no need to run the uninstall before. And KSO stands for 'Kindle [with] Special Offers' .

Not registered new Kindle3 Special Offers act as normal kindle and have no adds.
It's good trade off for people not using the internet, to prevent having adds.
But not registering means also lack of some features as internal on device collections control which is as far as I know only way to put audiobooks into collections.
Does this hack or similar(big brother hack) prevent from putting by Amazon adds on your device and as a result have control over audiobooks? Or is there another way to contol audiobooks? I have failed with Calibre which I use only to create collections for books.

@filbill

This hack just controls enabling/disabling operating system updates from Amazon or from unofficial hacks. If you install this hack, Amazon will still be able to put ads on your kindle if it is a Special Offers Kindle.

@NiLuJe

As promised, here I am trying it again but alas! Failure once more I most definitely do not have the KSO and my serial number begins with B006 so I used the following screensaver hack: "update_ss_0.23.N_k3g_install.bin"

I followed the steps precisely as you mentioned above. I erased the linkss folder which also contained the screensaver folder (did not run the uninstall). Above you say "Reinstall" so I assumed that meant for me to drag the "update_ss_0.23.N_k3g_install.bin" into the root of the kindle. So I did that AND I copied over the src/linkss folder to the root of the Kindle. THEN - I did a Restart as instructed above (not a Update Kindle). During the reboot I received an error message saying that my kindle was unable to update with an Error Code: 3

I hit the letter "R" to resume (as requested by the kindle). Once it was up and on the home screen, I put it to sleep but only to see the hideous ordinary bird screen saver staring back... Help...?

Do you think it is an issue with the jailbreak install? What on earth is going on..

@Radish.: You didn't follow the instructions correctly (mainly, don't manually add the linkss folder, and don't reboot your kindle, ever, with a custom .bin, always use the 'Update Your Kindle' link).

Yessss! Thank you NiLuJe

With some mucking about I managed to get it installed correctly with my personal screen savers.

Thank you so much for taking the time to help me even though I was in the wrong forum!

Kudos to you my world wide web hero
