It appears you may be in luck...the Jailbreak appears to survive the new FW 5.3.9. Why don't you just leapfrog to it?

Hi! Nice hack! Is it possible to get it to work for more then 100 different screensavers? :P I have 170 and I saw everything over 100 was deleted from the device.

@Rudde: Not in a single 'session', no. In shuffle/random mode, the full pool of images is used, but you cannot have more than 100 in a single framework life-cycle (and there's nothing we can do about it, short of updating yifan's pillow module).

So where do I put the pictures I want to be a part of the shuffle?

Nowhere in particular, the hack takes care of everything.

NiLuJe is the 0.8N version ok for a jailbroken PW2?
You mentioned a snapshot but I can't locate anything other than the above at the moment (probably being blind)

Yep, until I get my hands on the actual device, assume the current releases aren't supported on the PW2.

USBNet, KUAL & the SCreenSavers hack should work, and for those the snapshots should be safe enough.

For the Fonts hack, on the other hand, here be dragons! I wouldn't recommend anyone checking the snapshot out unless you know what you're doing, and have a SSH/serial shell available.

I got an error when I attempted to install the python bin. Then I went and did the linksss bin, and my screen savers work. When I looked in the directory, there is a python folder.

I have no idea if that makes any sense to anyone

@booklover6: Which .bin (release/snapshot)? Also, what kind of error? And on which Kindle model?

Also, define 'my screensavers', because Python is actually only needed for the cover mode.


On a more general note, I know it's a little messy right now, and everyone's kind of excited, but please try to post in the appropriate thread. I've just answered an USBNet question in a compatibility thread, and this is a Python question in the KUAL thread... If you get my drift? .

Sorry. This is on the PW2. I don't remember the error message, but it said it did not install. This was python 0.8.N. I then put on linkss 0.15.N. I am not using the book covers, just using some pictures for screen savers.

@Yolina: So it is. Oops, my bad, @booklover6 .

You should have seen the state of my notetaking today, it was truly epic .

@booklover6: Yup, the Python stuff was probably packaged earlier, thus, no PW2 support for the 'release' packages. Update to the snapshots.
