Thanks, I really appreciate your time and effort. At 72 I am still learning and trying to stay in touch with all the new stuff that keeps coming my way. Every once in a while, I get lost and even bewildered. And much thanks.

Could you put this on your to-do list please tomorrow NiLuJe? As you know I got caught between all the different versions you put on; plus had installed clarknova's jailbreak before that. I have done a log like Granvillen has and could you check that I have all your hacks (the three of them including jailbreak) so I know that I can most likely receive updates without having to do this again? I am using your font too btw.

Thankyou

reboot vs restart

Hi all,
I know how to do a restart but what is the difference between reboot and restart....

Also, how do you do a reboot on the K2 US.. (again I know how to do a restart!)

Thanks,

Willbur

This is what is in the text file

Hello! If you're wondering what all this weird stuff on your Kindle is,
I'm a screen savers hack! There's a good chance that I came from here:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88004

I'm at version 0.5.N, so, if you wish to uninstall me, you'll at least need
the uninstaller from that version.

-- NiLuJe

Is this version available now? Do I need to uninstall it (in which case, I only seem to have .6n zip file) before upgrading to .7?

Ok, I used the .6 uninstall file, and my screensavers were replaced, so the uninstall worked fine; loaded up the .7 version which is current, my screensavers are now back, but your note in the text file still says I am on .5 Not a biggie, all is working well but seems a little strange.

You also need to update the content of the linkss/ folder on your Kindle with what's in the latest zipfile . And probably do a full restart after that, just to make sure.

Ok, just loaded up the updated links file to the root directiry, allowed files to be copied over existing same names; the option to update the kindle was greyed, so I just restarted it and sure enough, your note for 7.n is sitting there.

Please Amazon, no updates for a while....

Thanks again NiLu Je.

How do I know if the jailbreak worked? For me, I never see this error, so does this mean it worked or not? I installed the screensaver hack after that and it seems to have worked, as I see that message when I slide the power switch.

The reason I am doubting if it worked is that I am also trying the usbnetwork install, but it doesn't seem to work (no log file created and no usbnet directory at the root). I would appreciate any help.

If the jailbreak failed to install, you wouldn't be able to install any hacks. Any hack update would fail with a U007 error. (It flashes briefly on the lower left corner of the screen at the end, you might have missed it).

So, what 'message' are you speaking about with 'I see that message when I slide the power switch'?

Also, @irha/@lucadita re: usbnetwork: Usually, no support *means* no support... ^^ But, as long as the update file ran (ie. jailbreak ok), there *is* a log file [EDIT: Unless you forgot to upload the usbnet directory beforehand. The installer now handle this case and warns you that you messed up]. And you upload the usbnet directory yourself, like with the other hacks.

It only took me about a half an hour to install the jailbreak, the font hack (and figure out which font I liked best), install the screensaver hack and screensavers.

Thanks for consolidating all the info!

Can't get it to work on DXi

I have both the font hack and the screensavers hack working beautifully on my K2i, though I did have to mix and match a bit and I used clarknova's jailbreak followed by the font hack and screensaver hack here, using the instructions on the wiki.

I went back to the wiki upon arrival of my mint condition slightly used DXi - the older white version - and followed all the instructions exactly as for the K2i but with the DXi files - and b*ggred if I can get it to work!

The initial jailbreak does 'fail' with a message on the screen and a big cross as expected. I then run the font hack (haven't tried the screensaver one yet). But even after restarting, I still have the standard fonts. I have replaced the fonts with the Fontin2 ones the same as on my K2i as I really like that font.

When I ran the clarknova jailbreak on my K2i, it didn't fail. Is this the difference? But when I link through to clarknova's jailbreaks, I can't find one for DXi to try it - just K2i and K3i (what's K3i?).

Hope someone can spread some light. I won't be able to try again until Tuesday as I locked the DXi away in my work desk drawer.

@suecsi: The fact that a jailbreak didn't fail probably means that it was already jailbroken. Never actually tried that, but the fact is, on a vanilla Kindle, *any* jailbreak hack *fails*.

Regarding the fonts hack, I'm assuming the update itself was successful? If that's the case, make sure you're not missing anything in the linkfonts folder, and that it's in the right place on your Kindle.

Also, are you sure you don't have another font hack installed (or badly uninstalled)?

(As for k3/k3i, that's what the DX/DXi are called sometimes by the hacked update packager. It might become even more confusing when the actual k3 comes out, that's why I switched to using dx/dxi/dxg).

You can check some of these facts by running the dummy update here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/att...chmentid=55475, and attaching the dummy_testupdate.log file that'll have been created in the root of your Kindle to your next reply.
