NOTES:

We've had a report that this app causes newer Touch firmware versions to hang up.
Specifically: This hangs KT 5.3.2 & Paperwhites. It's known to work on KT 5.1.2.

Do NOT use it on the later firmware.

REQUIRES: Collections Manager by Ixtab

LINK: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/att...1&d=1360286705

AUTHOR: Titano

NOTES:

For the Kindle Touch. Tested on 5.3.2

To hide collections manager itself...place collections manager in a collection then hide it with collections manager. It won't hide without being in a collection.

This is the "fixed-up" version with correct filename expectations and no space owing to KUAL 0.3.1 compliance issues.

Other Notes:
  • On 5.1.x Firmwares, the search bar disappears if the device enters sleep mode and wakes up again. There is no known workaround, but you could just actually use the device, so that it doesn't enter sleep mode ... or simply restart the application.
  • On Firmwares >= 5.2.0, the search functionality is not available.

OR - just use the "disable screensavers" helper button -
That actually keeps the machine awake, not just disables the screensavers.

Or, it keeps it from going to sleep for more than 14 hours, that I know from experience with using USBnetwork on it that long.

AUTHOR: wsxhwyy

NOTES:

The source for this is available here and the project is RIPE for expansion.

EXTRA NOTES:

The "drawing direct to the framebuffer" thing that this does freaks out the kindles display slightly. but it does work. really well.

After closure: Will leave visual artefacts on the kindles search/status area until something causes that area to be redrawn. Open a book, browser, etc.

So To reiterate: Since this extension uses EIPS for displaying output. It will cause the search bar and status area to become a bit mangled looking.

This can be easily remedied by
  • Opening a book
  • Opening the browser
  • power cycling
  • other things.

This eink eips messiness will probably be tidied up at some point.
not hyper critical.

AUTHOR: Hawhill KUAL PORT Twobob SPLASH IMAGE smartgenes

NOTES FOR A DX:

TO USE THIS ON A DX:
amend LINE 23 of run_game.sh to read:
[[ $K -eq 90 ]]&& break # use Aa for enter

GENERAL NOTES:

This loader uses eips to display lists of games. One can then be selected from the list by
  • typing it's name then
  • Pressing the Aa Key
A demo rom is included, if you enter no name the demo will run.

To select any game you would type nameAa

where name is the name of the rom you wish to run.

games can live in
  • /mnt/us/fbgnuboy/roms or
  • /mnt/us/extensions/gameboy/roms
Spoiler:
Example Gameplay, Roms Not Included, Shiny Checkerboard Pattern Not Included.
Matrix blurring effects Not included. Dexterous Finger Not Included. Please play responsibly
Keep out of reach of elephants; Must be taken without water; Not a replacement for a real diet.
Do Not Stick in Eye. if you, or a person you know, has a problem with fbgnuboy... get out more : )

EXTRA NOTES: (about the 8 bit touch version)
There has been built an X-version of this for the touch devices but it stumbled on creating long presses with the Touchscreen driver which renders many games unplayable. If anyone has any tips on fixing that... chime in. Happy to share the xgnuboy build, make tweaks or whatever (it has sound). Dithering on the 8 bit devices is also unfinished. So... Unless you are a developer don't expect joy on the alternate devices yet. Cheers.

Changelog

1.0
Refactored scripts to have several convenience functions. Looping, error handling, etc.
Bundled and tested initial bonus roms
reworked scripts to allow for ARCHIVE folders in the main roms directory.
(provisioning initial D/L's and docs as per licensing requirement)
reworked it to look "nicer"
made dialog prompts more descriptive of the actual end-user requirements
Other dull stuff.

Pack 2.0

Tested and packaged 30+ Public Domain GB titles for eink.

LINK: DOWNLOAD AT http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=205666

AUTHOR: dsmid

NOTES:

This simple extension has only one purpose: stop Amazon from updating your Kindle silently without your explicit consent. It is intended for users who believe in "My device - my rules" principle.

It doesn't stop Kindle from downloading the update file but once it is downloaded, any silent installation attempt fails instantly in an early stage without depleting the battery and intercepting the GUI.
The update file is preserved after such failed attempt and thus it is not downloaded again and again.
Full updates are recognized during the attempt and a countermeasure is deployed (dummy update file update__this-file-prevents-installing-on-reboot.bin is created to confuse the boot-time updater)

Manual update triggered by user is still possible (i.e. selecting "Update Your Kindle" in the menu).

You can install the extension as a classic update bundle or a KUAL extension. Please do not install both.
See UPSTREAM for details.

EXTRA NOTES:

The eips reports are all fixed up now on all devices. (Version 6.0 or later)

The Touch and PW are supported (Version 7.0 or later)

The next thing to be done for this new Firewall is to add system support for the "REJECT" and "ULOG" targets.

Then the rule-set will have the "DROP"s replaced with the right kind of "REJECT"s so the user doesn't have to wait five minutes for the store to time-out.
Amazon really, really wants you to access the store - it tries for an unreasonable length of time to do that.

The rule-set will come in two flavors - simple and advanced (for developers) - the advanced one, instead of dropping unknown packets will use ULOG to capture a copy for off-Kindle study.

This should lead to interesting things like "limited access" to Amazon network features -
Like getting authorization to use a public Wifi Hotspot on their "Free Wifi" account (which comes with your device).
Like using the e-mail "send to Kindle" feature.

Also note:
The current firewall does not prohibit you from using your own - "at home" Wifi.
See section 4.7 of your 711 report (scroll down in the report) to: "Sponsored: No"

Just can't (right now) use the Public, commercial, Wifi hotspots.

No ETA for when this update to the system resources will happen, just know that my Kindle Koding partner (twobob) and I are working on it.
