This is an amazing thread.

Here's two I've been using (besides my family photos)

Team Fortress 2



The Shining



I had to brighten up the Shining picture since it was much too dark but it still looks good on the Kindle.

Is there anyway to delete individual photos without clearing everything? I added one that look not that hot on the Kindle.

Here's three more pictures that look great of the Kindle.

Trent Reznor



Saul Williams



Year Zero

very cool thread! i've been searching for good screensavers and downloaded several from here - thx for sharing!

I started out with the table of elements and a couple others from jacksonunit, and went from there.

The "pictures of my family" thread got me started, with the 2 .bin files to use custom and revert if needed for update.

thx again!

was a bit vague before on the screesaver "hack" - sorry had to find it.

here's a link to it:

for anyone finding this trying to use their own screensavers on a K2.

GL!

Thanks for this great hack. I made quite a few and posted them on my blog. There's 26 of them on there. Please excuse the colorful language. I usually only blog when I'm upset, and when I'm upset the cursing flows.

The post with the "screensavers" is: http://lilcube.com/blog/2009/06/28/r...-fun-damental/

I feel like a dolt. I started a whole other thread I requested that be deleted. Anyway... here is what was there:

I think Amazon dropped the ball with the image screensavers here. I'd much rather graze on some knowledge when I glance at my sleeping beauty.

This is stuff I'm interested in or trying to learn. Its nice to review these before I power up or if I only have a minute to kill. Makes the kindle useful without even browsing the menu. The file names should be self explanatory.

Useful bits for DIY:
Resolution 824x1200
Photoshop crop tool ratio: 41.2 by 60
To match my border in photoshop select all -> Modify -> Border -> 20 -> OK and then paint bucket the outer selection black

Everything I built these with was freely available and/or okay to be redistributed.

LilCube's screensavers are awesome - go check them out.

MrD - great idea. I especially like the ports and subnets - handy to have around.

Firefly photos

I just got a Kindle 2 and hacked it to use custom screen savers. I made a set of Firefly/Serenity screensavers and thought someone else might appreciate them. They aren't perfect, please improve if you want. I attached the 10 images below in a .zip archive.

I see this post is a few years old. Does anyone know if this method of changing the screensaver still works on a new Kindle 2?

Because that was a Kindle 1 only feature .

If you want custom screensavers on a K2/DX, use a screensavers hack. (Cf. kindle dev subforum).
