"Update Your Kindle" is disabled for my bin file (made by kindletool)

Dear All,

I did a font fix some years ago, and I want to reproduce it for my new kindle paperwhite. The firmware version is 5.4.5.1 (unfortunately updated without my concent when plugged wi-fi, so I can't jailbreak it).

With pw2 device I have a problem: "Update Your Kindle" is greyed for the bin file which I am creating.
For other bin files of other authors - e.g. with a very well known update_rescue_pack_20131220.bin - the menu item "Update Your Kindle" is enabled.

So, there is some difference, and I do something wrong when I create this bin file. Please, help.


My steps are next:
1) I've just taken kindletool from here - the MinGW version.
2) I'm working in Win7. I have a bat file makebin.bat with this command inside:

kindletool create ota2 -d paperwhite2 discover_install update_discover_install_pw2.bin

near this makebin.bat I have a folder discover_install with one file in it - install.sh. The contents of this file is next:

#!/bin/sh
cp -f /opt/amazon/ebook/lib/framework-api*.jar /mnt/us/
cp -f /opt/amazon/ebook/lib/MobiReader*.jar /mnt/us/

When I ran this file, the bin is created. But when I copy this bin into the root of the kindle device, and when I go to the menu "Settings", the "Update Your Kindle" is greyed. I connect my device again, and what I see: MY BIN FILE IS ALREADY MISSING! Something is killing it.

Question: what I am doing wrong when making my bin?

Anyway it still doesn't work.

Guys,

I've just downloaded the kindletool-v1.6.2.20-mingw.zip - this is the last version which I see in the snapshot thread
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=225030


But on this wiki page http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kindle_Serial_Numbers
I see that serial number beginning from 9017 (my case) Kindle PaperWhite 2 (2013) WiFi (4GB) - Support added in KindleTool 1.6.3.

Question: where can I get the KindleTool version 1.6.3?

Yup, assume anything > 1.6.2.1 is a RC for 1.6.3 . As you found out, your specific model isn't support by the plain 1.6.2 release, only by later snapshots.

(In this case, this will always be a valid assumption: anything > a.b.c.1 is an rc for a.b.c+1 ).
