Re "How to Get Landscape Mode on Kindle Touch", I tried to install with my new Kindle Touch. The buttons all looked right, but no landscape mode! I then tried upgrading to version 5.03 of the software. Not only did it not work, but the buttons disappeared. It seems as though the Kindle crew have done something in 5.03 to make sure that the hack does not work. How irritating!

One thing was unclear in the original post (instructions). I assume that 1) extensions needed to be at the highest level of the Touch (in USB mode). Clearly, the MP3 files needed to be in the music folder. Was I correct regarding extensions?

I hope you can make this work again. It would be very helpful to read PDF files in landscape mode and the original hack with jailbreaking etc. is just too complicated for me and for many others. So thanks for your efforts on our behalf!

I hope the original poster is still around. I have been trying to find out why my Kindle Touch will not auto rotate. The main reason I want it is because I cannot seem to find a cover that props it up for reading that is portrait, they are all landscape, but my KT does not do that....why in the world don't they have a prop up cover for the KT?

I read the original posters directions, but honestly don't know how to follow them. I am not sure what I have to download for sure.

Is there a "translater" around? Thanks

MP3 file will not work on version 5.0.3 or higher, and will not work again because bug has been fixed.

You should try autorotate 0.2 but from version 5.0.3 there is a bug that has been introduced, about truncated images.

Would be great if someone could finish/improve that autorotate 0.2 hack.

To do:
- fix the image display issue
- fix the autorotate issue (only autorotates after restarting the device, after sleepmode it won't work anymore)
- add option to enable/disable autorotation (which uses accelerometer)

I don't have the knowledge to do those things, but I think those additions would be appreciated by many. Thanks!

just try to extract and seems that installer/uninstaller are broken, extract made with errors.
If then I try unpack MobiReader-impl.jar from installer, i got errors. If I try this with jar from uninstaller, it's ok. May be jar file is broken and so we have cutted pictures?
For extract rename *.bin to convert and run "./kindletool convert convert". Output will be convert.tar.gz file


Sorry for my ugly English

None of the mp3 version works on my KT 5.0.4. Instead of buttons appears:
<button type="button" style=width...
pirl8 - ixtab - cscat...

could you please help me?

Post Thank you + bug fix

What the hell, very good. Thanks for the hack. I agree with the bug fix wanting:

Also, it only goes landscape right or portrait, not landscape left or portrait inverted.

At last, to be perfect, be able to make notes in landscape mode ("noobly" sayng, putting the Note box a little up on the screen in that mode (I know it's not so simple).

Thanks.

Post About the "disable rotate"

Well, I've translated KT for PT-BR and there were the strings "enable rotate" and "disable rotate". Maybe it is just the strings, but maybe the feature is hidden and the work to disable accelerometer may reduce to unblock them.

Rotation hack for 5.0.4

Hello, I tried both hacks for rotating on my KT 5.0.4.
1) GUI Launcher hack - manual rotating is OK, but there is a problem with missing characters on the end of lines
2) KT automatic rotate - cut off images, but text on the end of lines is OK. After entering from standby rotation stops working

I tried both hacks together: auto rotation works always after standby, but images are still cut off.
So we need only combine these two hacks together (in Yifanlu hack are images displayed correctly), but there is a problem with text.
Can any developer make it for us ?
