cover book as screensaver
I have a kindle 3 with the scrreensavers hack. Recently i acquired a basic KOBO reader, my first impression is that it lacks many things that kindle have, for example a browser, underline text, etc.
But one very simple that if I liked of kobo reader is that remains as screensaver the cover of the book I am currently reading or last book opened.
Is there any hack to do this? if there is not, Is it very difficult to make one for kindle?
I think this little feature is very significant to readers who have years accustomed to traditional physical books. Like me.

We do not support the Kobo here. You should try in a Kobo forum.
But for the kindles, it would be possible to do what you suggest with a background script (or native C program). Instead of running in the background, the "book cover to screensaver" script could be launched with hotkeys using the launchpad hack. It would take some research, development, and testing though (from somebody who wants to invest their personal time in such an endeavor).
Your options are to convince somebody to do it for you for free, or to pay somebody to do it for you, or learn how to do it yourself (and be sure to publish it here when you are done).

It might be similar to that recently discussed "Kindle Watch" - -
Which was a library file, based on something else that was done here (see the first post of that thread).
If a library file can be called to display an alarm clock, one could be called to strip out the cover of the current book.
That author has not (yet) published his source, but the original work the author based the "Kindle Watch" on should be published.
