This is the first time I know that I have double personality.

Do I have any other nicknames? Just to see what my other personalities are writing out there... Maybe they are staining my reputation and i am unnoticed.

ouch!

Hey, don't worry about reputation. One of my other identities, well-known in this subforum, recently became moderator here.

Thumbs up New feature: Ad-hoc (Mobile Phone) WiFi

The new 5.3.2 firmware is full of surprises. I found out I can now connect my Kindle to the internet by making a hotspot with my android phone, which was previously not supported. Nice work, Amazon!

The kindle should be able to connect to any hotspot that does not use exotic authentication. Your cellphone hotspot is no exception, so not really much of a surprise. It should behave just like a wireless router.

Did it NOT work with previous firmware? If not, did you setup your cellphone hotspot the same way as before?

Hey a question: if the jailbreak is working, why doesnt JBPatch/Gui launcher work? considering how the jailbreak should open the kindle for other software?

Jailbreak lets you install custom stuff. Whether that custom stuff actually WORKS as expected depends on its compatibility with the underlying firmware. Sadly, the latest firmware changed (obfuscated) stuff that breaks JBPatch hacks.

It is only a matter of time until new versions of hacks (such as a GUI launcher) are published that work on the latest firmware. Please be patient. The new firmware has only been out a short while and it takes significant effort to reverse-engineer it and develop code that works correctly on it.

I couldn't connect my Kindle to my phone before. I updated the CyanogenMod version since last checking, so I'm actually not 100% sure that the new firmware is the reason.

Mobile (phone) hotspots are usually not the same as normal wifi hotspots. They are 'Ad Hoc' or peer to peer networks. Kindles are known to be fussy when dealing with some forms of WiFi. Firmware version 5.1 brought support for enterprise WiFi (confirmed) and I believe that 5.3.2 is capable of Ad Hoc WiFi.

http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kindle_Touch
This wiki page still lists the KT as incompatible with enterprise secured WiFi or Ad Hoc WiFi. (And there are also some old discussions in the forums about this.)

There were working enterprise and ad hoc wifi hacks for older firmwares, but having support built into the official firmware is a big bonus. New firmware just keeps getting better (except when they remove or lock down popular features).

Just popping in to say, I left my Jailbreak and Font Hack in place while I did a manual update. The update ran fine, and the Font Hack is still working. All is good!

Love seeing ixtab's avatar icon in cover view for the Font Hack.

Question ScreensaverHack

Does this hack works with the newest Kindle Touch firmware (5.3.2.) ???
If not, I don´t see any reason for upgrade, because simple way to get cover of the book as a screenasaver is the priority for me !

hmm.. you can use the python screensaver thingy that Niluje made then.

Its in the README.

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=195474

Spoiler:

If you intend to use the cover feature:

It will use the cover of the last book opened as the current screensaver.
You'll need to first install the Python package attached to this post.
Download the kindle-python-0.2.N.zip file, and unpack it. In here, you'll find a couple of .bin files, and a couple of directories (src & build).

First, upload the update_python_0.2.N_install.bin file to the root directory of your Kindle.

Now, eject your Kindle, and go to [HOME] -> [MENU] > Settings -> [MENU] > Update Your Kindle. It should take a couple dozen of seconds.

Download the attached kindle-linkss-0.6.N.zip file, and unpack it. In here, you'll find a couple of .bin files, and a couple of directories (src & build).

First, upload the update_linkss_0.6.N_install.bin file to the root directory of your Kindle.

Now, eject your Kindle, and go to [HOME] -> [MENU] > Settings -> [MENU] > Update Your Kindle. It should take a couple dozen of seconds.

You now have a couple of choices to make:

Do you want to use the cover of the last book opened as a screensaver? Make sure you've installed the Python package first, then just drop a blank file named cover in the linkss folder. Restart your Kindle ([HOME] -> [MENU] > Settings -> [MENU] > Restart), and you're done .
