Trying to do the screen saver hack and its not working

Hey all, first post.

im trying to do the screen saver hack for the Kindle 2, and i copy the .bin file to the root directory (well i think it is root, it is the folder that opens when i click on my kindle in my computer)

and then i unplug kindle and go to settings and go to update and nothing happens, the update is not selectable and it is greyed out.

Thanks.

i have a kindle Australia version

I wound up having to do the USB networking hack to change the screensaver timeout (for a DX). Never got a good answer if the hack works for the newer firmwares.

The international version needs a new hack, which is now available - see Screensaver Hack for International K2?.

I had the exact same problem with a US Kindle 2. Update is greyed out and not selectable after following the hack directions properly for the screen saver change.

First post. Thanks for the help and support. Happy New Year.
