Many of the important threads are linked from the wikis. At least for the K5(touch), the wiki is a good place to start if the searches are not working for you. At mobileread, I prefer using the search in the top center of the forum web page (between "New Posts" and "Community"), with the "Show Posts" radio button selected).

EDIT: Now we have a Master Index sticky thread. That is a better place to start, and it contains links to the wikis in addition to the growing collection of links to this forum (and other places).

Yes, I know. But I didn't find from WIKI...
Sorry to bother you, I googled (that's why I was guided here)first, really.

It works!
chmod to rewrite, backup the ads folder, and then change to readonly. Nice work!

Thank you so much, one more again!

You could use a startup script that shuffles the screensavers by renaming them, so that they begin with different numbers. That would only take effect at restart. To have them get shuffled periodically, you could use a cron job, or a background script that sleeps for a long time between screensaver renames. There are many other events that you could intercept to rename screensaver images as well.

Except you'd have to shuffle stuff around with the exact same filenames (and I can't promise that the framework wouldn't get confused at one point, and you'd have a chance of ending up with duplicates), or restart the framework everytime you shuffle, which is precisely what the K2/K3 hack does (shuffle on unplug, then restart the framework). [In case that wasn't clear: because the framework load the list of screensavers at startup].

I'm assuming that's how the K4 framework works, too. It might, on the other hand, be doable on a Touch, if someone updates yifan's openblanket/screensaver blanket module for 5.1.0 .

Unfortunately I have no idea how to write scripts : (
Is there any "user-friendly" way? at least already written script, which I could use? Sorry for nubish questions )

I am not aware of any "already written" script that does exactly what you want.

There are MANY books and documents that can teach you how to write scripts, and you may learn a few handy things by studying the scripts in the "eink algorithmic art scripts" thread.

Learning is good for you.

If you do not want to invest the TIME to learn to write scripts, you could invest the MONEY needed to hire somebody to write it for you. Or if you ask nicely in the right places, perhaps somebody may do it for you for FREE, just for the learning experience for themselves.

Hello and great thread, i have some questions if u guys were kind enough to help me, im a total noob with this stuff sorry:

1.- Does this method work on a kindle special offers non touch, i read the title it says no but i saw the file u added runmeforads, thats why i ask?
2.- Is the RUNME.done file already in the kindle or do i create it with geekmaster data.tar.gz process?
3.- I read that the kindle ads ask u to connect to internet because the ads have expiration date so does this procedure disables that notification?

(i know is to much to ask but like i said im a total noob at this stuff, thank you very much)...

if your Kindle is Kindle 4NT-KSO
then follow this steps:
  • copy geekmaster's data.tar.gz, then restart Kindle
  • copy the second RUNME.sh ( in runmeforads.zip file ) then restart
  • remove RUNME.sh, RUNME.done and copy the RUNME.sh on the first post then restart

BTW always use menu>settings>menu >restart to restart your Kindle

This worked great for me, thanks very much.

However Amazon have just released system update 4.1. The update fails, error code U006, I assume because this hack was applied. What is the way to remove this hack (temporarily) so I update the system? (Is it to just delete RUNME.sh on the Kindle 4 NT).

Thanks very much for your work, and your continued responses.

Regards

EDIT: I tried deleting RUNME.sh and the update still failed. Any suggestions?
