Same problem here.
I just received a push update to 5.0.3 (damn!) and found this problem.
Anyway, it works fine in pdf reader, no problem there!

PS As the Kindle has been just updated, did I loose the jailbreak?

Thanks

shortcuts file change after update

FYI:
I received a push update to 5.0.3 too, and i found a difference in 5.0.0 version; There is a link in wiki to shortcuts file in /usr/share/webkit-1.0/pillow/javascripts/debug_cmds.js but this file is missing in my 5.0.3. Instead it I found nearly the same file as /usr/share/webkit-1.0/pillow/debug_cmds.json
I edited this file and added my custom shortcuts ";ls" and ";po" which runs my shell script in
1] /usr/local/bin/landscape.sh with lipc-set-prop com.lab126.winmgr orientationLock L command
2] /usr/local/bin/portrait.sh with lipc-set-prop com.lab126.winmgr orientationLock U command
changing orientation with shortcuts now works perfectly as before

no, your kindle should be still jb if amazon didn't removed the sign yifanlu hack has placed with the official ones (and it's unlike they have do this).

if you want any of the old 5.0.1 software just PM me witch you need, my kindle is still "outdated"

btw, anyone who have problems with auto-rotating hack: try to exit the book you are reading and manually place the kindle in sleep mode. that should prevent it from blocking (grandad-like solution but it should work.. or at least a grandad told me he never got problems by always doing that).

sorry for the worse english ever, really fuzed right now

Here's the solution to the known problem of 1-2 characters being cut off on the right of the screen under KT version 5.0.3.

The page is shifted to the left and the last syllable from the end of the sentence does not read. Fortunately I had kept /opt/amazon/ebook/lib directory from version 5.0.1 and I replaced MobiReader-impl.jar and everything works well.
igich has provided the MobiReader-impl.jar file at the above thread. Please remember to backup your original MobiReader-impl.jar in case you want to revert the change.

I hope you guys are backing up your old (new) jar because all amazon updates update the jar files and if you don't back up you won't be able to upgrade to the next version.

@yifanlu, uninstaller contains backed-up files.

Is it correct, that this rotaion hack is only working with the gui launcher? I installed and found no other way to activate. And this is completely fine for me, the launcher is perfect for this.

Is your KTRotate_0.2 based in the YifanLu GUI Launcher orientation hack? Then, if I install your hack it installs automatically the MobiReader-impl.jar from 5.0.1; and if I want to update the Kindle in the future I unistall your hack and it restore automatically the MobiReader-impl.jar from 5.0.3. Doesn't it?

I have installed the KTRotate_0.2 and everything seemed well. However, when I open a book with images (The Little Prince or the The Adventures of the Black Hand Gang for example), all the images are cutted in any view mode (portrait and landscape). I have checked with more books with images and the issue persist. Finally I have decided to unistall the hack and the images are shown complete again. Could this issue be fixed?
