That refers to /opt/amazon/ebook/bin/init.xargs, and really shouldn't happen. Did you tamper with that file? Anyway, can you post the exact content of the file here?

Connecting to PC opt folder is empty. I am trying to connect by ssh but I can't find user/pass combination.
But yes, I tamper with that file

The "-istart KindleLauncher.jar" line was the culprit - it should never have been there. Actually, you're really lucky that you didn't brick your device by inserting that line

Custom Screensavers

Hi All,
I know this topic is sort of frowned upon here, but does the patch to remove special offers enable the screensaver hack? When I tried the screensaver hack all it did was disable screensavers entirely, so when I pressed the button the screen froze and remained locked despite still showing exactly what I was doing when I pressed the lock button instead of showing an image.
Thanks,
Bill

EDIT: Also, is there any reason why my kindle should always boot up into landscape mode? Is this intentional or a bug?

Any reason, yes - you enabled the "Enable all Screen Rotations" module. Now be a clever little user and disable it (then restart Framework or Kindle), the whining makes me cringe.

As for the other question, you could simply try it right?

Oh, I'm terribly sorry. Thank you for your first point, I will try that now. The second, a little uncalled for as far as I can tell, and third, if you'd bothered to read what I had written you would have seen that I stated that I had tried it however it's effect was not what was expected.
Thanks for the first bit, though. Feel a little as though my time here has started on the wrong foot now, sorry.
Bill

Is it possible to use JBPatch to allow kindlets to close themselves? As far as I understand, currently kindlets can only be closed by user (pressing home button).
Do I need a separate patch to do that, or some JBPatch magic in kindlet would be enough?

Can I escalate kindlet's permissions through JBPatch instead of editing /opt/amazon/ebook/security/external.policy?

I was wrong about it. It's possible to use something like "lipc-set-prop com.lab126.appmgrd stop app://com.lab126.booklet.kindlet" to close self.
But the question about privilege escalation remains.

Use the Kindlet Jailbreak, that's what it's there for...

All of the Kindlets I released so far make use of it, because all of them require non-standard permissions. Check the "main Kindlets" of any of them to see how it's used. More info about the Kindlet jailbreak (including source code) here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=1905690

Off-topic

Or rather "off-site"

@forokd/cristbo: Please tell all of these people who are complaining about "Update error 3" that they are not following the instructions correctly.

They should use the "Update your Kindle" entry in settings, but they're doing it wrong again and again, by using the "Restart" entry instead - and this is guaranteed to give Error 003.

Would it be feasible to make a patch to add in the progress bar like there is on the K4NT, or are the frameworks too different in that respect?

I doubt it -- or let's say, it would probably be a tremendous effort for a marginal gain. Anyway, since I don't own a K4: what does the progress bar look like at all?
