Question Kindle App on T1 Question

When you install the kindle app on the T1, does it need some special folder designated as its library?

It is automatic using directory /kindle on main memory, don't know how to move it.

That's strange - on my reader, Kindle stores its books in /mnt/sdcard/Sony_Reader/data/data/com.amazon.kindle

But I got the latest version from market....

I had Kindle re-installed several times due to ... errrm ... issues .... and I never lost the library! It always found the books I had there and there was no need to re-download...

When you connect T1 to PC, the kindle library is \kindle. If you use Root Explorer in your T1, kindle library was /mnt/sdcard/kindle. I am using Kindle.apk version 3.2.0.35.

You can try:

Code:
mount -o remount,rw /
rm -rf /kindle
ln -s /mnt/sdcard/kindle /kindle
This way, everything is saved into the internal memory.


Or, better than that, if you use a Micro-SD:

Code:
mount -o remount,rw /
rm -rf /kindle /mnt/sdcard/kindle
mkdir /mnt/extsd/kindle
ln -s /mnt/extsd/kindle /kindle
ln -s /mnt/extsd/kindle /mnt/sdcard/kindle
This way, everything is saved into the external Micro-SD card.

Tried the same, also for /data/data/com.amazon.kindle/files/ (where synced books are stored), did it work for you?

The internal sdcard seems to be vfat, so I understand I could run into issues with linking from /mnt/sdcard.

But I also did not succeed in linking from /data/data/com.amazon.kindle/files/ (... kindle being itself linked because I put it physically in /data/sdext2/data/... beforehand) to /mnt/extsd/kindle/files, although here only the link target is FAT32, while the link should be created in the ext3 I have on sdext2.

Any observations anyone?
