Yes it should, although I haven't played with it recently due to DX switch.

I've put the savory-image-007.ext3 into the system folder and waited and restarted and waited but nothing happened. It still says Kindle 2.2 (---) but no + savory or anything. What should i do?
I'm using Kindle 2i though.


It's my own fault. I forgot to copy the .bin file onto the root directory.

Just installed this on my DX and it works well. As stated it does take a while to covert it. I like it.

unable to install latest savory under 2.3

First of, I am very thankful for all the previous posts- I received a lot of valuable information that allowed me to update my wife's Kindle 2 to view pdf files ...that was under the 2.0 firmware -

I then got the notion that with the newer 2.3 firmware upgrade and the native pdf support, I would give it a go - so I uninstalled the savory .06 and updated the firmware to 2.3 - only to find that I was not able to see any of the pdf books -

I then tried to install savory .07 - said that install was not successful - So I tried to uninstall it - only to have the same message appear - install was not successful.....


anyone have a clue what I am doing wrong or how I can rollback my firmware?

input much appreciated.

Sure you upgraded to 2.3 ? it should read PDF natively.

First, once you've upgraded to 2.3 you can't go back.

Second, as there's now a native PDF reader, I didn't bother repackaging Savory for firmware 2.3.
If you have a Kindle 2 International, Savory 0.07 should install properly. On a DX or Kindle 2; it needs to be repackaged to the new format.

yes - I checked the version and it says 2.3 with a bunch of numbers in () after it.

I placed a pdf file in the document folder and there's nothing registered in the kindle except the dictionary.

The only thing I can trace back is if I didn't install Savory .06 improperly...

Earlier in this thread someone mentioned that installing and uninstalling savory .07 should take care of anything untoward that one had done with .06 -
Does it take much effort for you to repackage .07 for 2.3 so maybe I can get 2.3 to work properly?

Thank you

Does savory output log files anywhere?

I've got one PDF that has been converting (supposedly) for a few days now.

I gave up and deleted the *.mobi *.txt and moved the PDF back into the documents directory, it recreated the "Converting*" documents, but I'm still waiting a few hours later.

Any advice?

I just received my new Kindle2 as a gift last week and wanted to download Savory so that I can read .epub, .lit, .html and .pdf files found from the internet. The problem is, everytime I go to Settings>Update you Kindle, I get the message "Your update was not successful. Kindle will restart now..." What am I doing wrong?

I don't have any books in my Kindle before I followed the instructions for Savory

My Kindle2 version is 2.3.3 (followed by many numbers); US based, not Int'l

I put the file "savory-image-007.ext3" in the system folder of my Kindle2

I put the file "update_Savory-0.07-k2.bin" in the root folder of my Kindle2 (where the documents, system, etc. folders are)

Once I disconnect the USB from my PC, and go to Kindle2 Settings>Update your Kindle, I get the above message.

I feel quite defeated after repeating this exercise many times over now. I almost want to return it. Can anyone please help me? TIA, I'd very much appreciate your help.

will downloading 2.52 help with the other problem I have currently with 2.3.3, which is when I open the .pdf file, I cannot increase the font size, the only setting that's not greyed out is the presentation (portrait, landscape, etc.)?

does anyone know if this works in 2.5.2? i've installed savory but i can't tell if anything has been installed - it's definitely not converting after putting pdfs and fb2 files into the documents directory and unplugging the cable.

btw, the "native pdf support" is actually pretty terrible - the PDFs i've tried are either way too small or way too big, depending on the zoom.

I have a new kindle 2.5.6, and the fonts hack works fine. But Savory doesn't install, says update failed. Tried .06 and .07, and same result. Any ideas?

@Jesse is there a way for you to create savory for pc so the files are converted on your desktop and then we can transfer the files to our kindles?

Also are all the pdfs converted to a text file and an image file? Thank you for your help!!!

Savory is the Calibre tool ported to the Kindle along with a monitoring app that auto converts files you put into a specific directory.
