Unhappy Problem using CollectionsManager

I have a Kindle Touch (D01200) - It has been jailbroken using kindle-jailbreak-1.14.N.zip - gets the *****Jailbreak***** message after update.

Copied over CollectionsManager.azw2 - and I get an item called "Collections Manager" ('ixtab' - underneath)

I have built collections in Calibre using "kindle Collections" set the sort column, run it and then ejected the Kindle.

I am not sure if I am I am meant to run the "Collections Manager" on the Kindle and use the 'Home Icon' - Synchronization - Import Collections from Calibre OR if I should reboot the Kindle (Settings - Home Icon -Restart) and then as above afterwards - whichever, I have tried both.

On the Kindle I have an Icon dropdown in which I can choose; 'Recent - Title - Author - Collections' but I cannot choose 'Collections' as it is always greyed out.

I have not found really clear instructions on the process of creating the collections on Calibre through to seeing the collections on the Kindle - there always seems to be a missing step (like choosing 'Collections' on the aforementioned dropdown ?) so I am not clear what is going wrong.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Kindle running 5.3.7.3.
Calibre 2.67
Jailbreak as above

I think this is a Kindle question, not Calibre or a Calibre Plugin.

Hi theducks, I did look around the various forums trying to decide where the best place to post this would be, thanks for moving it if it was posted wrongly.

I thought that as it concerns a jailbreaked Kindle and it is not to do with the operation of the actual Kindle, but additional software (Calibre plus a plugin ? Collections Manager) that it might be better found in the Software section.

I am sure that your sig. is maybe not directed directly at me, but for the record, I did try and do my homework around the issues I was having before asking for help.

I see that this post maybe reads as me being slightly annoyed or has a sarcastic tone - I'm not and it isn't and I appreciate both yours and any other help I am given. Great forum and I can see that you have played a good sized part in it's success.

Thanks again.

I can confirm that Collections Manager should import the collections.json the Kindle Collections plugin generated, so the likely problem is that the collections.json is not being created properly.

Just to double-check, you did make sure to export the collections to your Kindle (via the appropriate plugin option), yes? If so, then the file "[userstore]/system/collections.json" should exist (where [userstore] is the Kindle device as mounted by your computer, and system is considered by the Windows operating system to be a "hidden" folder).

...

It is about Collections Manager and the Kindle Collections plugin, so the best place to post would be in either the Kindle Collections or Collections Manager support threads, ideally whichever one is the cause of the problem... but failing that, you could also post a new thread in the Kindle Developer's Corner (KDC).
(My analysis of the situation is that the actual problem lies on the Kindle Collections end of things, which is why I am the one answering questions, so don't feel bad about not knowing that.)

Unfortunately, theducks, who is an awesome person, is not particularly a Kindle person (by which I mean he primarily frequents the calibre forums, not the Kindle forums). So he accidentally moved this thread to the Amazon Kindle forum, rather than the KDC subforum where you could actually get an answer.
(I have reported the thread to the people who do have moderation capacity in this subforum, so hopefully that should change soon.)

Plus, I am mostly the only KDC regular who really checks the Amazon Kindle top forum, and I'm not actually very regular anymore. Since NiLuJe (currently our one and only moderator, with the power to move the thread again this time to the KDC) is also kind of gone at the moment... and NiLuJe is the Kindle Collections maintainer as well...

Basically, what I am saying is that you weren't being ignored, much though it might seem that way. It's just that our usual helpdesk is in a state of shambles. So, sorry about that.

I hope you haven't given up in the month it took for someone to notice this thread, and that you in turn notice that someone has posted to this thread.
