Probably not.
Here is the installer script:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
lipc-send-event com.lab126.blanket.ota otaSplashProgress -i 0

mntroot rw || exit 1
lipc-send-event com.lab126.blanket.ota otaSplashProgress -i 25

cp KindleLauncher.jar /opt/amazon/ebook/lib/KindleLauncher.jar || exit 1
lipc-send-event com.lab126.blanket.ota otaSplashProgress -i 50

tar -C /mnt/us/ -xzf extensions.tgz || exit 1
lipc-send-event com.lab126.blanket.ota otaSplashProgress -i 75

cp launcher.conf /etc/upstart/launcher.conf
lipc-send-event com.lab126.blanket.ota otaSplashProgress -i 100
Since you say that it actually fixes the issue, the jar file must have been copied, so it must have failed at the extensions.tgz extraction step (don't know why though). As long as you see all the usual extensions, there's no need to worry.

Thanks.

I executed
mntroot ro
for good measure.

I made a 'TTS Speed 220' Launcher item and it works perfectly.

Best Regards,
James

@mingyun: I'm not sure that I understood everything, but I'll try anyway:

- upgrade your Kindle Firmware to the latest version using the official updates.
- upgrade or install the GUI launcher using the version 1.2.2 installer.

This is known to work for many people. PS: the updates should be installed using Menu > Settings, Menu > Update your Kindle, *not* by simply rebooting.

Yes, I meant it, and now I use the latest version 1.2.2, the display is:
update error: 007
Not succeed, I think it might be caused by the new version! Would like to invite you in the right software updates to support the new version!

Thank you!

Hello, did not think you see my replies, I have just found this new jailbreak, you can install, to disturb you!

Thank you!

Hi.

I've got a KT with serial B011, fw 5.1.2 in spanish. First I installed version 1.0.1 of the Launcher (the link is in the first post) but it didn't work (maybe updating that link to later versions should be great to avoid this happens again). I read on until I found the latter update of the Launcher (1.2.2).

To be a "good boy" I executed the uninstall for the 1.0.1 version and later tried to install version 1.2.2. It returned a ERROR 3 and didn't worked. I deleted by hand the "extensions" directory and tried to install again. This time it worked OK.

to everyone who spent time developing, documenting and testing this software.

regards

@XiR_: Don't restart your Kindle with a custom .bin, use the 'Update Your Kindle' link in the Settings menu.

Thanks, NiLuJe. It worked out. Just posted to share my experience with 'uninstalling' with my firmware.

Sorry to be a nuisance, however I've added several launcher extensions to the extension folder, however none are adding to the launcher.
I've rebooted the device, am I missing something?
Please can you tell me where I'm going wrong.

Thank you.

I had the same problem a few days ago (after having caused a mess).
I tried to uninstall and install the launcher again but it didn't work.
It turned out to be a problem with the installation process: I placed manually the upstart script and the jar and it worked (and still works) fine!

Thank you for the helpful response ixtab.
I'm new to this and have followed the available instructions I have found to the letter.
If my information isn't enough, possibly asking for more would be an idea rather than a facetious remark.

silver18 if your response was to me, would you please elaborate. Thank you.

To elaborate futher..
