Question Rotate through screensavers?

Hi I have a jailbroken Kindle 4 with the screensaver hack, but I was wondering if there was a way to rotate through the screensavers without the waking then putting the kindle back to sleep again.

Could this be done by putting the Kindle to sleep then using the turn page buttons?

Thanks.

No,
Changing the meta-stable display requires that the main CPU be running, not sleeping.

@knc1, it would be possible if you integrated some of the functionality of my extension into yours (you'd have my permission). Though this would be quite a different approach to the current version, so not sure how easy it actually would be to make this adjustment.

How would that handle the page turn buttons?

Ah, I overlooked that. I was just thinking timer based rotation (e.g. every X minutes).

Yup - This meta-stable display technology still catches a lot of people.

The: "It is displaying something - surely that means it is running" thoughts from the days of legacy active displays.

Since the Kindles will "wake on USB change" and the non-3G devices have an available internal USB host port - -

Perhaps some sort of hardware modification could use the page turn buttons to wake the system and perform an action might be possible.
I.E: Make the buttons generate a USB change.

Ah, too tricky for me, and I started out as a "hardware person".
