Kindle DXG fw 3.3 B009 > second screen usbnetwork hack?

Hi

1. I have Kindle DXG (graphite) SN B009 with jailbrake (I do not know what kind) to firmware 3.3 (611680021). I dont know what kind of jailbreake it is, someone else installed the soft.

2. Also there is Doukan installed with shortcuts to change system (UpArrow+D+S) and go back to Amazon soft (UpArrow+D+X). (dont know version).

It seems that Doukan is installed in the following way:
Quote:
"[only for K3:] works only when you start the Kindle on Kindle OS
for the newest version(Duokan 2012) see this post
for the versions before 2012:
There are three ways, to use them just unzip them to your launchpad folder and restart the launchpad with [Shift Shift Space]
duokan-ini.zip this one is sufficient to read pdf files and also easy to use: [^D S] to switch to Duokan and [^ D X] to switch back to Kindle."


3. I have also noticed there is "launchpad" do not know what kind/version.

I want to use http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...le+dxg+display -

to get display features via USB.

Here is what I can see in WIndows 10 pro 64 bit when plugged into USB :

Drat! My Crystal Ball just re-booted (again).
What is your question?

Since I have to guess:
What you are looking for is Hawhill's thread about using "VNC".

I want to make kindle dxg working as a second display via usb - but also when disconnected from PC - to stay fully functional ereader.


I suspect that jailbreak on my kindle was from this developer thread:

That is not the jailbreak, that is a continuation of the Frankenstein firmware for the K2/DX(G).

I don't think anyone has (successfully) used VNC on a device with Doukan installed.
We don't support the Doukan project here due to issues with their ethics.

Weird thing just happened - I have left Update_usbnetwork_0.57.N_dxg_install bin file in the root of my Kindle DXG.

Did nothing on my own.

When having kindle connected via USB I have unmounted it from Windows 10 pro 64bit. But kindle was Still charging.

Suddenly, After a while kindle started update with the use of the above mentioned file.

It updated with success. Worked fine. Then I set up on PC a VNC, and connected Kindle dxg 3.3. but it was recognized as USB mass storage - maybe file name of "Disabled AUTO" in USBnetwork folder on kindle (shown up after update) should be changed to "AUTO"? as said there:

Maybe this pcworld article has "holes in the story"?

I am not sure that you can.
First, check if they have an un-installer or an un-install command.
(their new owner is miui.com)

If that fails, then -
Try this:
remove all DK_* directories in the USB visible storage -
telnet in (I assume you have telnet working) and delete all contents of /var/local
exit from telnet
with the Kindle's Settings menu, 'reset to factory defaults'
make offerings to your favorite Gods
re-boot

This alternative **might** leave some Doukan changes to the normally read-only file system. **might**, I don't know.

This is weirder - right now Doukan with uparrow+D+S started, also log off from doukan to kindle OS worked. Still can not access kindle via USB


Update_usbnetwork_0.57.N_dxg_install <- this file has read where is written to make active auto.bin file.

But how to reverse it and make it disabled? to get USB kindle <> pc connection working.

----------------------

I did it!

tap the Del key on the Kindle DX keyboard. A prompt will appear. Type ;debugOn and press Return. Note the semicolon at the beginning of the command; you can produce it by using the Sym key. Next, tap Del again. Type ~usbNetwork and press Return. This command starts with a backtick, which you also produce via the Sym key. Make sure that it's a backtick, not a single quotation mark. Once you have that, tap Del one last time. Type ;debugOff and press Return.

thank to https://tinyapps.org/docs/e-ink-monitor.html quote: "† The backtick (`) is used in Kindle Version 2.x and earlier; the tilde (~) in Kindle Version 3 and later."

I have used ~ insted of ` and USB connection works.

IMHO - if kindle dxg has 3.3 soft then it is no longer dxg, but the model that natively holds 3.3 software -- am I right?

So maybe I should use usbnetwork hack for 3.3. firwware device - seems to be like Kindle Keyboard??

But in the post immediately prior to the one I quote here -
You wrote that the USB networking was working for you.

Stop trying to fix what isn't broke.

At the moment I am where I have started. My kindles root and other directories can be accessed when in USB mode.

But still I do not know what kind of hack use in order to change it into the usb-second display for WIN 10 PRO 64 bit.

Having 3.3. Kindle OS made Kindle USB display hack DXG not working for me for example - backtick should be changed for ~ when writing usbNetwork while activating the hack. Still I do not know why driver enclosed in hack will not install in windows as another network connection but only as com3 usb gadget device.

Excuse me for not proper description I have been doing lots of things on the fly

Yeah I have read this.

Problem is - windows 10 can not recognize the kindle as network connection or whatever. It is only installed as some kind of usb device - unknown in device menager and no driver suits it.
