Post Snapshots of NiLuJe's hacks

You'll find here links to snapshot packages of all my stuff. By snapshot, I mean that these contain stuff straight from my development tree, so you can, and should, consider these unstable. I'll refrain from pushing plain broken/wip stuff, but I cannot guarantee that they'll be as polished as proper releases. They're grouped here in a single post as a convenience, both for me (much easier & faster to upload), and for you (that's the easiest way to get properly arranged source files for these packages).

This probably means that I'll stop releasing proper, tagged releases when there are only minor changes (like refreshed binaries), so going forward, these packages are also one way to get the latest binaries.

On a sidenote, most of these are distributed as xz compressed tarballs (because it's much, much more efficient) so you'll need GNU tar/bsdtar + xz-utils on Linux/BSD/OS X, and something that can handle those files on Windows (f.g 7-zip or WinRAR 5).

Now that this is out of the way, on to the good stuff!

The listing follows this format:
Description | D/L Link | Last Modified | Size | MD5 Checksum | MR Thread

Packages targeting the Kindle 2/DX/DXG/3/4:

Packages targeting the Kindle 5 (Touch/PW1/PW2):

KUAL & KUAL extensions:

KindleTool:

Misc. Stuff:

And now to actually finish writing the script that'll make this post useful!

EDIT: Wheee!

Should be done now .

For now, in sync with the latest releases, but in a decent archiving format .

Okay! Now that this is set up, a call for testing on KUAL!

I'd like to make sure I didn't break anything, namely:

* That it generally works as expected ;P
* But in particular, that buttons that launch stuff after killing KUAL actually work in every case. If you find something that doesn't work reliably, please tell me, with as much details as possible (button, extension, Kindle model, was the device busy at the time, do you have a large extensions folder, etc.)

In addition, I'd also like people to test running KUAL with gawk. You'll need both a KUAL snapshot, and gawk installed through the gawk extension (it'll pop an install button in the KUAL menu).
One quick way to check which awk version KUAL is using is by checking the version tag at the bottom: if you see ",a" after the date, you're running the default awk version, and if you see ",g", you're running GNU awk .
In my worst case scenario (a decent amount of extensions, but with quite a few heavy ones [ie. nearly all of mine ], with the fonts override menu from the K5 fonts hack fully populated), it roughly cuts the parsing time in two or more (the more complex it is, the better). So, for my K5 worst-case scenario mentioned earlier, it goes from 8.22s to 2.41s .

Test in progress!

EDIT: No bugs found so far
EDIT 2 : Tested even more deeply and no bugs found at all. Approved!

Another call for testing, this time for KindleTool!

I switched the crypto stuff from OpenSSL to nettle (remind me not to have any more bright ideas like that while half-drunk at 2 AM....), so that introduced a whole new way for me to break stuff! ;D
On the bright side, there's now only one package per arch on Linux, and it should work even on distribs using crazy soname tweaks (Fedora, I'm looking at you).
It might also be slightly faster (not that it was especially slow to begin with...).

TL;DR: nettle's nice, but there are a few quirks to look out for... On the other hand, at least the code is actually somewhat readable, because, oh god the OpenSSL API(s)... >_<".

Incidentally, all the packages were rebuilt with said KindleTool update, so if stuff fails to install, I'd be glad to know .

Mwahahahah.

I wasted three iterations of crappy designs working around an issue before noticing that there was indeed a perfectly fine API call doing exactly what I wanted/needed... >_<"

TL;DR: If all else fails, read the doc again! .

USBNetwork doesn't seem to work on my jailbroken PW2, works perfectly on PW1 with the same configuration.

I'm using WiFi only config with ssh keys and automatic start, but the process is probably not started at all. ;un in the search bar also has no effect, toggling via KUAL has no effect too.

Log from KAUL:
Code:
/tmp/klauncher_background-63134.sh: line 2: ./bin/usbnet.sh: Permission denied

Known "issue". Needs the updated bridge / jb. Will release when I get back home.

Affects nearly everything, not just USBNet.

EDIT : In the meantime, people on irc might be able to steer you in the right direction.

I have to admit -
I forgot to mention that 'undocumented' change in the process at the time they where testing the JB also.

(Well, unpublished on this site anyway).

Just updated the snapshots. Now support the PW2 3G EU.

The pw2 install packages have been forked to their own dedicated .bin, and now use new binaries tailored to the PW2's new CPU.

Also did some weird crap with USBNet, hopefully it should work properly on the PW2 now, or at least in a slightly less braindead manner.

Yayness \ 0 / It works. Now I can connect to my PW2 WIFI JP through ssh

But the connection is quite erratic. I couldn't type any letters 2 minutes later
