Okay, a little bug with the device info patch. I have every patch enabled, together they don't make 20 patches, yet the device info says "14/20"

That's not a bug, it's a feature

What the display actually tells is how many classes could theoretically be patched (20), and how many have actually been patched (14). It is normal for these numbers to both be higher than the number of patches (a single patch can change many classes), and to be less than the maximum (not all potential changes will be applied: the TTS patch can change 6 classes, but will at most change 2 of them at runtime). The number of applied patches can even change at runtime, because a patch only gets applied when its "target" class gets loaded. This is also (more or less) documented in the README.txt of version 1.3.1.

Ahh...
Will the "jbpatch with no reboot" go away if the patches are again stored in /mnt/us or do you have plans for a way to copy all jbatches from /mnt/us to /var/local when the configuration ui starts?

Here's another patch, inspired by popular demand.

This patch allows to change the margins around the book content. For the simplest use case, you can now influence what the Kindle understands as "fewest/fewer/default" words per line. You can also hide the progress bar, if you are so inclined. Finally, this patch also affects the PDF display, so in principle, PDFs can be made to display on the full screen.

I attached a few "before/after" screenshots (see below). The result is largely depending on your individual settings, though.

INSTALLATION: copy the attached file "ixtab_margins-5.1.0.zip" directly to your Kindle's opt/jbpatch folder (do NOT unzip the file!), and add the corresponding entry to CONFIG.TXT.

CONFIGURATION:
With the default configuration, this patch does not change anything at all. To change the behavior, you have to modify the file "ixtab-patch-margins.txt" inside the zipped file. After editing, make sure that you re-zip the patch correctly, then restart your Kindle.

SCREENSHOTS

Before:
Attachment 86922 Attachment 86923 Attachment 86924

After:
Attachment 86925 Attachment 86926 Attachment 86927

The PDF files are mostly for verification: The central box should always be square, and the borders are a visual indicator of the actual document dimensions.


Update: I attached the actual pdfs, and the code to produce them - maybe they are useful.

Sorry but could someone explain me how to modify the margins from the very beginning ?

thanks

Yeah, it's coming.

I'm currently finalizing a few things with the installer and the documentation, expect it in a few hours

Version 2.0.0

After almost 1400 downloads of the previous version, I'm happy to finally announce version 2.0.0 of jbpatch (now renamed to JBPatch, for no particular reason).

The new version, which can be downloaded from the first post of this thread, was almost a complete rewrite: except for the actual patching logic, pretty much everything has changed because of the addition of the user interface.

An existing installation can be updated in the same way as a completely fresh installation would occur. However, because of the massive underlying changes, all previous settings will be lost and need to be configured again - sorry for that.

The new version is completely localizable. However, no localizations are included by default. You can download localizations for the UI, and for individual patches, from the Wiki page. At the time of writing, I posted the german localization for almost everything there. Please: if you like JBPatch and want to support it, create and contribute a localization for your native language - thank you!

Final note: I invested quite a bit of effort to create this new version. I tried to make it as user-friendly as I could, and thoroughly tested it to make sure that it does not contain bugs. However, I'm only human (despite my nickname ), so I may well have missed something. Please report any problems to this thread.

Known UI problems:
* "clicking" (tapping) on a patch entry in the overview screen of the UI may not always lead to displaying the patch details. You may need to tap multiple times. This is likely to be a bug of the Kindle Touch.
* the horizontal scroll bar of the log display of the System tab of the UI is not usable. This is likely to be a bug of the Kindle Touch.
If you find the cause of, or a solution to, either of these problems, please post them in this thread.

Edit: latest sources pushed to git repository.

Dead wiki link. When you click it you go to:
http//wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/JBPatch (no ":", using chrome browser)

But editing the page shows the embedded URL as:
http://http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/JBPatch (extra http://).

Here is the CORRECT link:
http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/JBPatch

Please fix your link. Thanks.

EDIT: I see that your link has been fixed in your post above. Thanks.

Thanks for the hint...

Chrome seems to be dropping the colon, for whatever reason. This is a problem with Chrome, not with the post.
http://link.com -> http://http//link.com. I have experienced the same problem while copying URLs from Firefox to Chrome. It is some weird bug in Chrome.

WTF?!

Edit: it's not a bug in Chrome, but in my Firefox... It copies the http:// twice, for some URLs The "WTF" still stands though

Fixed.

The original error in ixtab's post was that the URL contained "http://http://"... as it was visible in the edit box when you quoted it, but hovering over the link or clicking it changed that to "http//"...

Thank you so much!!! Finally I can remove those silly borders when displaying PDF books. Wow! Kisses! UI is very nice!
