Kindle Touch ScreensaverCopy script

Hello, I just made simple script for copying screensavers on Kindle Touch. Is working with Launcher and should work on every version of firmware on Kindle Touch.

More information here on github.com/samnung/ScreensaverCopy.

UPDATE:
Archive file is here:

UPDATE 2:
license: GPLv2
I've deleted images from archive, Amazon license ...
Attached Files
File Type: zip ScreensaverCopy_archive.zip (3.2 KB, 177 views)

Nice and simple, I like it
Does it delete all of the screensavers on the device every time you press it, then replace them with those in the folder, as opposed to updating or adding to the existing ones?

The script deletes all images from KindleOS, then copy from folder 'screensaver' and rename all files to specific file-name format.

I hope this is enough to explain

Yes I understand now, I like it seems much more simple than the simple screensaver hack by Yifan Lu. Thanks

Maybe you have installed simple-screensaver, or Your images are not in PNG. Make sure about that.

Hi I have a Kindle Touch with 5.1.2 firmware. I've jailbroken my kindle successfully using data.tar.gz simple method which worked ok. I then installed yifanlus GUI launcher which installed ok.

My problem is that the screensavercopy is not showing up in the launcher. I downloaded the screensavercopy.zip file and copied the Screensavercopy folder into the the extensions folder on the root of the kindle. I disconnected the kindle and removed the USB cable and when I open up the launcher in the menu it just shows the USBloaded and the screen rotate defult items. I've tried restarting it 2 or 3 times and it still hasn't come up.

Hi Peter, try this, look to the folder screensavercopy and there must be:
  • bin (folder)
  • config.xml
  • menu.json
If are there different files and folders, You copied wrong folder. I'll fix it in README in update on github.
