Can I remove a hack?

I put the UF hack on a while back and am unable to update Kindle software as a result. I reset to factory defaults, but it still sees the hack. Any ideas?

Hacks have removal tools - you should always download the removal tool with the hack to your PC so you are prepared for updates. Factory resets do not affect software you added yourself, only the Amazon software.

Either search the fourms for the hack removal scripts or visit the Wiki.

TIP: When installing ANY hack always store an UNPACKED copy of the hack file itself AND the UNinstall file for the hack in a folder off the root drive of the Kindle. I named mine HACKS. That way you have the uninstall files handy should you need to uninstall a hack AND the install files to put it back once updated.

Kindle does not care if there is EXTRA content on it's "drive" in a folder other than it's system folders, it does care about the version of files within it's system folders when upgrading though.

P.S.: Resetting to defaults sets OPTIONS back to defaults not the system files back to original.

Yep, you need to put the correct unstall hack into the root directory and all will be fixed.
