chapter marks are preserved?

Could anybody tell me if with new firmware the kindle still displays the chapter marks (the small dots in the progress bar at the bottom)? I would appreciate. Thanks in advance.

@muttley_wr: On the K3/4, yes. On the Touch, via a JBpatch patch. (Provided the file you're reading has a proper NCX logical TOC).

Yes, I can confirm that the chapter marks are there. Naturally, this depends on whether the one who created the ebook put them in. Also, the percentage number is a little smaller (I think).

Well, the unhelpful auto-answer from Amzn suggested a Restart or (if that failed), a restart via the power switch. Neither worked.

Instead, I then de-registered the Kindle (again, third time), shopped the store a bit, so it noticed I was a rogue Kindle on the loose, then registered it. After going back to the menus -- voila! Kindle special offers.

HEH! Koland you hacker you!!! *doffs cap* Clearly genius.

This is perhaps the first device I ever heard of that FACTORY RESET, RESET and RESTART all do not reset in "meaningful" ways that the end user might expect.

Turn on and off again?

Could have sworn they were on my Kindle store bought book, but are now missing after the update! Is anyone else having this problem?

However my Calibre converted mobi's show the chapter dots ok.

@neonbible: You book doesn't have a proper logical TOC (NCX). (That's where the dots come from, chapter marks from the ncx).

I've left my WiFi on for 2 days now, and my KK hasn't been updated. Is there something else that I need to do, or do I just need to be more patient?

If you're in a hurry, you can always download the update directly from Amazon. That's what I did.

The same here. I've never had a update on any of my Kindles show up except once on the Kindle Fire.

Auto-updates are generally rolled out over the course of several months - there are an awful lot of Kindles out there for Amazon to send it to. If you want the update, just download it yourself from Amazon.

3.4 update

I updated my kindle keyboard with WiFi and 3G from 3.3 to 3.4 and now it doesn't work with 3G, has no voice and keeps locking up. Now what can I do? Anyone have any idea? Is there anyway to go back to 3.3 which worked flawlessly?

ouch... that doesn't sound good.

hmm.. I think k3flasher is an option but it's a "radical procedure" if you don't have a 3.3 backup (which I presume you do not)

The only option I can think of however.

I just did this recently (did I write it up? possibly)
in essence:

get a de-bricking image (3.0.x is available I think)

apply via k3flasher - (which in itself has a learning curve, thread is easily found)

then update incrementally to 3.3 (mine actually just jumped to 3.3 for some reason when I applied the Amazon update, I'm sure I documented that somewhere)

Then... well since your 3.4 OTA update already delivered... that should be it.

This procedure IF DONE CORRECTLY won't lose your books etc.

Sorry mate. best I can think of. HTH
