Kindle Menu has been reported to run well also on Kindle PW2. Should work everything except the filemanager, it seems . If you are getting KUAL errors, you'd better trying to report them in this thread:

To be honest, I'm not sure whether this is a KUAL problem or not; I haven't found anything to test with that is explicitly for PW2. Is there anything else for KUAL on PW2 that should work properly?

Every single app in the extensions folder of this package should work on PW2 (except the task manager, as said). So, if KUAL works and has been installed properly, it should be able to launch them too

Right. I let KUAL output its logs and found this:

Welp, looks like it's not a problem on KUAL's nor your side, but I'm unsure whether there should be a thread opened for this. I suppose it's a permission problem with the executable flag missing, and that might happen because I'm copying the files on the device over USB- from Windows. If you've never heard of that problem, I'll gladly move this somewhere else, but is this known to happen and easily fixable?

@chipf0rk: Huh. When did you jailbreak your device? (More specifically, how old are the files you used).

Also, which exact Kindle model do you have?

These all seem to be related to the user partition being mounted noexec. The easiest solution is to prefix the commands with /bin/sh. Not sure whether this should be handled in KUAL itself, or in each extension config...

PS: Moved to correct thread.

Thanks for moving. But how did that happen? And isn't that more of a problem on my device itself than in KUAL and the extensions?

The Jailbreak version was: 1.8.N @ r10152 on 2013-Nov-23 @ 19:14

My Kindle model, I'm not sure how to find out the exact one. I have a Kindle Paperwhite 2, bought in Germany, Firmware 5.4.2 (2155730032). There anything more to find out?

EDIT: Oh, and it's the WiFi only model.

Thanks in advance

@chipf0rk:

Hmm. Just to be sure nothing hinky's going on, try to re-do the jailbreak w/ the latest version, then restart your device.

(Thanks, Germany/WiFi-only is good enough ).

EDIT: Actually, no, it might not be: could you post the first four characters of your device's S/N? (From the 'Device Info' menu in the Settings page).

Yep, that's 90D4. And redoing everything with the newest versions is exactly what I'm doing right now- will report back after that.

EDIT: Alright, not sure what went wrong in the process at first. But everything seems to be working fine now after the 2nd jailbreak. Not sure if it was any of the software versions, but I did everything in the exact same order as the first time. Thank you all regardless!

@chipf0rk: The '90D4' was the problem .

I fixed that only yesterday, hence the half-working results the first time .

Out of curiosity, since those 90 prefixes intrigue me: did you order your Kindle straight from amazon.de?

Ah, alright! Yes, I ordered it straight from there. With a 50€ discount for having an Amazon credit card. Might that be a clue? I don't know. Are 90x IDs unusual?

@chipf0rk: They used to be. Apparently not so much anymore with the PW2 .

Only for the first 6 weeks after the model was released.
Now it is ours.

I had to live for 43 looooong days with my Kindle in out-of-the-box Amazon mode. It is just so nice to finally have the goodies (at least some of them) back on it
