That's a pretty minimal application with only two classes.
Well, that "minimal" app has like 300 lines and 32 imports.
Anyway, it was helpful. I don't really understand the reasons behind it, but when using SuicidalKindlet, SwingUtilities.invokeLater around exec made it work. With AbstractKindlet there is no need in magic — I probably just forgot to add jailbreak.enable, when I've tried it for the first time.
Sources of result are available there.

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.

Gracias Maestro por estar vigilante

The first thing would be to port the JBPatch core to the K4.

Then you could decompile the Home Booklet and check whether it looks anything like the one of the K5 (in particular, if you find the strings "LIST_VIEW_MODE" and/or "COVER_VIEW_MODE") in there, it's probably possible. But it still wouldn't be a piece of cake, because you'd have to do all the reverse engineering work again (well, if you're lucky, you might be able to benefit from some of the stuff I did for the K5).

Remembering from back when I got a K4 image for testing, the K5 and K4 jars are radically different (probably an entirely different code base), so the chances to actually find substantial (code) similarities between these framework is minimal.
I know, you don't have a K4. Was just taking the chance asking. There is always a possibility, that things work ...., so most likely the K4 stays as it is.

Cool

Just notice that this way, your code is still restricted to access only the "whitelisted" classes (defined in com/amazon/kindle/kindlet/internal/security/whiteListedClassNames). But as long as it works... cool

The Touch does show a progress bar, but only for periodicals, as far as I know.

IMHO, it would be great to be able to have this old functionality back, at least for those who miss it.
LOL, It's not just me then!

Honestly how are you not working for Lab126? This stuff is great! (What I don't get is why they don't implement it in the stock firmware? From what I understand, most of the functionality is already there.)

Well.... let's say it like this: I will be looking for a position soon. If anybody has something serious to offer, I may be interested. That goes to Amazon as well

The "cover view" stuff has been in the original firmware, yes. All of the other stuff is "home-grown" and was developed from scratch.

And again, it is so valuable not only to have someone who creates some of the most valuable additions to the ui there could be, but who is also a lateral thinker. I mean, how many coders out there would have stopped and thought to go back and implement this slider - after they could already just use hyphenation presets created by others.

Again, very useful indeed, thank you.

I have a question about the cover view mode. I have all my books in collections and was wondering if I can change the icons for the collections, the default ones or customize each one? If not that's fine, just thought I would ask.

Wink Scrollbar usable for ToCs?

Hi, Ixtab.

I would want the usable scrollbars patch to be usable also in Tables of Contest. I take long time in some law books scrolling as a pig to find something.

Thanks for listening and for everything.

P.S.: Bug report: The new hyphenation patch is not showing correctly the description in the configurations, only the var name (min.lenght.preffix, for example).

That's not a bug. I explicitly wrote that you need to update (re-download) the localization file.

Wrong person to ask.
Ask Dalede (the wiki moderator), he is the one recorded as having deleted the page.

You (and everyone else that wants it back) may have to PM him.
