You seem to have to redownload your pdoc to get it to synch correctly.

Hi Blossom,

What devices are you syncing with besides the Fire? What Kindle address did you send it to?

I sent a book to my Fire and to my iPhone. I ended up with 2 files on the Fire. One with a cover and one without a cover. They showed up twice in my Amazon page for the personal docs too. I just deleted them and will play around and see what happens.

I repeat it was at XDA developers under 6.3 stock rom. It was rooted by 11PM on 3/27. Amazon has it now and I still can't get it to do a damn thing.

Yeah the cover bug is worse now. Clearing Kindle app data fix some of them but it's seems it can't make up it's mind which pdocs have covers and which don't.

I haven't had any issue sending to my Kindles. I use Send To Kindle though not my email server. Each Kindle has a unique email address as well.

It seems new pdocs will download a cover show in the doc tab but not on the carousel. Pdocs that were on the cloud will only download a cover if you clear Kindle data and cloud pdocs don't show a cover at all.

More Info. It seems only pdocs sent to the fire will show covers at all in the doc tab automatically. Still doesn't show up on the carousel though. Still trying to figure this out.

Are you using Explorer? Sending to each devices unique email address?

I'm using Calibre to send to my Kindle. Tried sending to each device and then the stock one of myname@free.kindle.com.

Carol

EDITED: Just tried sending to my Fire only from Calibre. Cover showed up. Didn't show up on my iPhone til I rebooted the phone. When showing in the 'cloud' on the phone it showed blank icon, but once downloaded the cover showed up. On the Fire it shows the cover in the cloud and downloaded. Also shows cover in the Carousel.

Yes I get that too but if I try to send a pre 6.3 doc no cover. I finally downloaded my entire cloud then cleared the Kindle app data and that forced the covers for pre 6.3 docs I then removed them from the device and the cloud now shows the covers. Luckily I only had 50 books in the pdoc cloud.

I have this one book that wont show the cover no matter what I do. I've tried everything but Factory reset!

If you only send a doc to your Kindles and not your Fire this seems to be only way to force the cover to show up. Really annoying.

Uh-oh Sideloaded mobi + File Expert no longer adds the book to shelves. It opens the book instead but doesn't add it to any shelf!

I really like the Reading View for Amazon Silk. It takes an article from a website and lets you read it without all the annoying crap on either side that is in sidebars. Unfortunately it is very slow to load, but worth the wait.

I also like the dimmer backlighting.

For me it's just the opposite. If I use the stock email of myname@kindle.com, the covers DO NOT show up, but if I send to my Fire's email, they show up.

It doesn't. It uploads it directly to the server bypassing the email address part.

I have 3 Kindles. Each have their own email address so if I want to send something via email I have to send to each one.

Only pdocs I send to the Fire show the cover. If I send something to my K3 and K4 but not the Fire and then later on the Cloud Doc tab download that book the cover wont show at all unless I clear the Kindle app data.

Sideloading books no longer works unless USB or Restarting. File Expert no longer works to add books to shelves. This is only negative other then the cover bug I can find.

If you just use the app, do the covers show up?

I wonder if it has something to do with the [ebok] tag in Calibre? I took out the [pdoc] tag and put in the [ebok] tag. I think I remember you did the same?

Yes as long as I have Kindle Fire checked. It will show up in Docs but blank on the carousel however once I remove from Carousel and reopen the book the cover will show on there too.

I don't use that feature on Calibre. However when you email or use that app it will add the pdoc tag automatically.

There are some pdocs and now Amazon books missing covers. I can't get those back no matter what I try. I have feeling they changed something in how covers are read.
