KindlePID doesn't work with DX

Returns "Warning: unrecognized serial number. Please recheck input."

Uhhh...or so I've been told.

By some guy I ran into on the street.

Never saw him before.

I met a guy who said that kindlepid worked on his DX but he didn't have a DRM book on which to test the result.

Further investigation lead me to two solutions:

1. If your guy has version 0.2, he can use version 0.1.

2. If your guy knows how to edit the 0.2 file in Wordpad or something else, he can add the following in bold:

Code:
    if serial.startswith("B001"):
      print "Kindle 1 serial number detected"
    elif serial.startswith("B002"):
      print "Kindle 2 serial number detected"
    elif serial.startswith("B004"):
      print "Kindle DX serial number detected"
    else:
      print "Warning: unrecognized serial number. Please recheck input."
      sys.exit(1)

Interesting that it skipped from B002 to B004. What happened to B003?

So B003 is the UR Kindle. Very interesting (actually that would be really funny if it were).

sirbruce,

I am sending you a big thank you, from the guy I ran into, and he would like to buy you an adult beverage.

Worked like a charm, and that guy's a happy camper!

Whoever he was.
