I think it might be something like that, but, i didnt figure out yet how to check this on the first menu, i just can set priorities on the submenus [apps] and [hidden features]. how should I do that ?

Just like you would with submenus. Here's an example.
Quote:
"name": "Test",
"priority": 0,
"items": [
{"name": "Test", "priority": 0, "action": "Just a test"},
{"name": "Don't Test", "priority": 1, "action": "not a test"}}
(Note this will not work .)

Yeah . I got the sintax but what i am saying is that i control that, in submenus by editing the menu.json from inside [apps] or [hidden features] folders, what i donīt have in main extensions folder. Where is this "first" "menu.json" ?

In extensions i just have a .xml witch contains other sintax and things ...

got it ?

this is how it all looks like now - launcher , mnt/us/extensions and mnt/us -

Ahh, okay.... Goto apps and click Update Launcher after you change the priority. The menu does not always automatically change (Just a guess but it maybe it is run from ram and loads settings ahead of time... Again just a guess.) Using Update Launcher will killall cvm and reset the launcher....

Hmm..... Well I have no clue... I guess just wait until I post the new version and try that. Sorry .

P.S. - You could remove the games folder and re-add it from the current version. From what it should like the menu.json got removed some how... Who knows what else got removed....

Uninstall Menu removes the installer scripts and files. All you should have to do is copy the launcher to extensions. If you have any problems please comment, also check list for new additions. Thanks for using this . Hope I saved you some time.

I am new to the kindle hacking scene and I love it. Everything is open source and a newb like me can learn it quick enough. The one complaint I have is the lack of organization in the gui Launcher. I have overcome this by creating menu's in the gui launcher to launch my apps. I don't know if anyone wants this or if it's any help but I am uploading my extension folder which contains the following apps as listed.
  • Apps
    • Komic v1.7
      • Run Comic
      • Decompress CBZs and CBRs
      • Rename files
      • Delete scheduled folders
    • Update Launcher
    • Start (or Stop) Usbnetwork
    • Start XTerm
    • (etcl) Calculator
  • Games
    • Sudoku
    • Sokoban
    • Reversi
    • Tic Tac Toe
    • Ataxx
    • Gems
  • Hidden Features

I don't claim to know what I'm doing or that I'm good at this I just wanted to help. That said I am not responsible for any damage (but what could happen?) I hope I didn't waste your time and that I was of some help. If you want a program added or removed I am glad to help (I would like to see all of the apps their are) just post a reply. for reading.
You forgot to attach the updated?

Yes all the files should be extracted to "/mnt/us/extensions/collections" so your folder looks like the attached image.

P.S. - Can you tell me if this works for you?

Hm... If you don't want to do that you can go throught all your menu.json and change their priority (Or you could upload your extensions folder and I could try to fix it. If you want me to do that just PM me a link.)

Thumbs up UPDATE

Titano and thread,

After cleaning up the junk of the extensions folder and , not after easy time hitting the head on the wall , I figure out - finaaaaallly - how to and what to trow out .

This last Titanoīs update WORKS SMOOTH here now!

Apps , Games , Hidden stuff and even the [move to /images ]
-- Thanks Titano , you even made it with /images/screnshots ! good to scroll--

What was faulting as we talked , the img viewer and some other misteries of the week, i added manually with no problem at all too

For me it works beautifully! with drawing tool now fully usable its a whole new thing this KT hehehe

Letīs pray for amazon hear us and maybe release a real absolutely fully functional draw tool... [ yeah for me it would be THAT deal ! Imagine if were possible to work on an resizable canvas? Or at least some options of definition... letīs see... letīs se...]

See a screenshot of how it looks now

And keep it rolling !

Thanks for everybody help and patience ! Iīll try to be more usefull than askfull next times! hehehe ...
