Kindle firmware 5.8.5.0.1

My Kindle PW2 installed a firmware update (5.8.5.0.1) this morning.

I don't see the new version listed on Amazon's software update page yet. It is probably a bug fix release based on the version number. No obvious visible changes so far.

PW2 got the most updates of any kindle so far, but I would bet that it won't get any 5.9.X

What ? I hope not ! Amazon should fix their cluttered fragmented GUI mess and release an updated firnware that fixes this issue. If they leave the PW2 the way it is right now then I can assure you that this was the last Kindle I've bought.

I know what changed, now after the update, and reuploading my books, it displays the covers correctly again!

I noticed that when in airplane mode, I'm no longer being prompted to connect/ignore when adding items to a collection.

I was getting that prompt just before the update.

Jailbreak is unaffected by the update. But hacks like screensaver or fonts need to be reinstalled along with Python

I don't know what it does, but it's needed to make the ScreenSaver hack work.

You need to download the second and third zip files, and extract.

1. Copy the Update_python_0.14.N_install_pw2_kt2_kv_pw3.bin to the MRPACKAGES folder on your kindle, eject, and run Kual>Helper>Install MR Packages.

2. Follow the same procedure as step 2 for Update_linkss_0.24.N_install_pw2_kt2_kv_pw3.bin.

Python is a programming language (amongst many other programming languages available). In the past couple of years Python received increasing popularity amongst developers and that increased it's widespread. Specially on systems like Linux / BSD Python found a wide acceptance and slowly replacing other programming languages like e.g. Perl, TCL, LUA and similar. It has pro's and con's.

Please take discussions of Python, jailbreaking, etc, to the "Kindle Developer's Corner" subforum.

Thank you.

I figured out that the small font issue still exists in the Kindle Shop. I wanted to read some reviews of a book last night and got nearly lost getting eye cancer. The small lines of the writings are barely readable.
