Launcher icon for KUAL?

Hi people!

Is it possible to make a patch for JBpatch or something else to substitute the "shopping cart" (in the top bar of the Kindle PW home screen) with a KUAL lancher shortcut?

I think that "Kindle Store" icons is quite redundant, because there is also the same entry in the drop down menu (top-right corner).

If not possible, or not possible to change the cart icon appearence, it would be a nice alternative also substituting the aforementioned entry, in the drop down menu

Isn't that already an option in the KUAL configuration file?

Look at twobob's screenshots - there is a custom KUAL icon in the top bar.

Oh, great! But... what code must I use in place of

const STORE_ID = 'app://com.lab126.store';

to make kual launch? Maybe:

const STORE_ID = 'app://com.lab.126.booklet.kindlet/mnt/us/documents/KindleLauncher-2.0.azw2';

?

Install. Use button for job.

That's a link from the KUAL: "Support: <-- Like read this... At least once"

Magnificent!

Sorry for forgetting Support: <-- Like read this... At least once"... I'd better reading it more then once xD

Too happy with the new button now

Thank you both!

It's in the link in post #3 above.
1) Copy store.png and store_active.png to/mnt/us, i.e. the usb drive
2) Run this script:
#!/bin/sh
cd /usr/share/webkit-1.0/pillow/assets/search_bar
mntroot rw
mv store.png store.bak
mv store_active.png store_active.bak
cp /mnt/us/store.png .
cp /mnt/us/store_active.png .
mntroot ro
3) Reboot the kindle
4) Delete store.png and store_active.png from the usb drive

I have attached the icons (in two sizes, for paperwhite and touch) and a KUAL button that you can use to run the script

Got the new icons visible..
Thanks everyone..

One small point.. maybe it is/was present for the existing icon too..
After you touch the icon in it's black(inactive) state, it momentarily turns white.. after kual loads, it again goes back to it's original black colour.. If the idea of having two icons was to indicate toggled states, then the icon should remain in it's active(white colour) mode.. while kual is active.. no..?
to further continue the "expected"(?) behaviour, when you touch the toggle while kual is active/visible, it should make kual quit..? or maybe i'm missing something..?

anyway.. nice fun.. now to continue it by trying alternative icons..
(other than the 'rocket'..)

Consider it as the home button...they have the same behavior, so it's pretty coherent I think. Home button doesn't stay "pressed" while you are in home screen for example, and it wouldn't look good if it was like that (to me at least)

If you mean the restart then yes, ultimately it would. But possibly too late. I have noticed that framework is able to "shoot itself" and write/ modify some files that can make it unable to start after reboot. So the sooner you remount ro after any changes the better.

I don't know what is the cause or consequence. I mean:
A) amazon guys are so incompetent that tey use RO filesystem to prevent hurting the system, or
B) amazon guys decided they don't have to be carefull about what they do since they have (unbreakable) RO filesystem.
