I have what might be a stupid question. I installed the Jailbreak and the SS Hack. If I want to install a new update, as I understand it, all I have to do is uninstall the SS Hack and the update will install. Am I correct, or did I miss somethning? Thanks to all who worked on the above. I for one appreciate your time.

Does official firmware contain any new fonts?

No: it's the same font but somewhat improved for a bit more "crispness", plus there are more font size choices.

You can use the existing hacks, if you install jailbreak-2.5 and then repackage the hack with --sign and not --ex.

If you don't want to do it yourself, I'm afraid you'll have to wait for someone else.

Is this something a novice can do? Can you point me to directions on how to repackage the old Georgia 2 font hack the way you are talking about? I'm computer literate, but have never worked with programming in any form.

I'm afraid I don't have time to write out detailed instructions.

You can download the packager from http://www.avenard.org/kindle2/

You'll need to install python, and a program that can open .tgz files.

The packager gives help if you run it with no arguments

Thanks Mikeage, I'll take a look... though I must wonder if it's as easy as you make it sound why it hasn't already been done!

porkupan, is your russian hack disables itself when kindle is in runlevel 3?
(under which Kindle update process runs as I hear from my local forum)

Actually, we already have a new font hack based on that idea by our local guru. (not my idea)
I think that maybe used for screen saver hack also.

How do I start the USBNetwork after installing the update?

OK. I'm new to this.

The usbNetwork update installed just fine on my 2.5.4 K2i. But now, how do I start / activate it?

Sorry for such a noob question.

Thanks,
Jeffrey

Never mind. Finally figured it out. In some hacks it takes ~usbNetwork,
but in this one, apparently, it takes `usbNetwork.

Cool. Thanks!
