I'm using all your files for the DXi, and the update ran properly but 'failed' as the instructions say it should do.

I'll do your dummy update and post the log file when I am back in the office on Tuesday.

Many thanks for your kind assistance.

Hi NiLuJe,

In kindle-2.5-usbnetwork-0.11.N.zip, did you intend to include usbstorage in src/usbnet/?

It's not there, and my log file is complaining about a failed chmod.

Quote:
usbnetwork v0.11.N, Wed Dec 31 23:25:52 PST 1969
chmod: /mnt/us/usbnet/bin/usbstorage: No such file or directory
Thanks

One other note.

NiLuJe, you've done some great work in packaging these hacks in an elegant and user friendly way. However, it seems like a common mistake is forgetting to copy a directory from the src/ subdirectory of the installation ZIP. Without this directory, the log files are not created at all!

May I suggest having the logger fall back on the root directory if the appropriate linkss/linkfonts/usbnet directory is not present?

Thanks

@mikeage: Yep, forgot about that, it was there as a first attempt to switch between usbnet/usbstorage without rebooting, until I figured that using the `usbNetwork private command as a toggle would be way simpler/easier. I'll fix the other scripts to reflect that this one doesn't exist anymore, thanks .

As for not copying the directory, that was initially done on purpose with the fonts/ss hacks to avoid doing too much IO interaction with a live rw / mounted during the update process. And when tweaking the usbnet hack, I followed the same principle... But unlike the ss/fonts hack, in this case we really need the directory to be here during the install, and I didn't think about that... ^^ I realize now that it's probably not the most user-friendly way to do things... (And quite possibly a not so great idea after all, since apparently it can be confusing both at the initial install, and even more so when doing an update that you'll have to handle the custom directory yourself... :/).

As for the logging, since I was originally only tweaking the fonts/ss hacks, and they don't really do any logging, I didn't really pay particular attention to the usbnet logging and foolproofing in general, I'll fix that too, thanks for catching all that .

EDIT: Fixed! I updated the attachment in the first post. Thanks for your detailed reports .

Cool Jailbreak

Does the 2.5.x jailbreak allow me to install hacks that were available for the 2.3.x firmware? I am trying to find a hack to disable the screensaver altogether so I don't have to worry about my device timing out when using my Guardian case. Also, will I still receive the auto-updates of the device firmware with the jailbreak applied. Thanks.

@rbbcpa: Not sure, since the 2.3 hacks packages used an exploit which has been plugged since. You'd better ask for someone to repackage it properly for v2.5.

And, more specifically, if you're talking about ebs' screensavers timeout hack, check http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...9&postcount=59 .

The jailbreak in itself (at least this one and clarknova's) won't block auto-updates, no, but other hacks might. (the timeout hack does, for example, while these fonts/ss/usbnet hacks are update-safe).

Minor bugfix update. (v0.8.N & v3.5.N). Unless you have custom screensavers with spaces or special characters in their filename, and are using the random screensavers feature, it's not a critical update, check the ChangeLog.

To update to this version (whatever version you're actually using), you'll have to both update the content of the linkfonts & linkss folders, *and* run the latest update*_install.bin file(s). (You don't have to do an uninstall beforehand). Once that's done, do a full restart of your Kindle.

I tried everything again with a clear head and a break of a few days and yey! It all worked - I have my custom screensavers and fontin font. So no need to publish the dummy log file.

Thanks for your help.

Huh. Okay, found out why it failed to trap the K2 US 2.5.4 OTA update. -_-"

Minor bugfix update. (v0.9.N & v3.6.N). Unless you care about trapping official update files, it's not a critical update, check the Changelog.

If you're updating from v3.5.N/v0.8.N, you just have to update the content of the linkfonts & linkss folders. No need to run the update*.bin file, no need to restart your Kindle .

Been away for a while, but just got my kindle and PC in the same room. New USB package works perfectly.

Thanks.

It's fantastic the way y'all work at this and then answer our questions. Many thanks! I'm so glad this board is here. 'nuff butt sniffing . I, too, have a question.

When you say "trap the updates", does that mean catch them and update the Kindle when Amazon sends updates, or does it mean it traps the updates and prevents the Kindle from automatically updating?

I prefer to decide for myself whether to update, especially after this last go around where many had the new update and were without the hacks for weeks. I'd rather do without an update and be able to read on fonts that don't make my eyes bleed.

I mean it'll store the update in a subfolder just before the update itself is launched.

It'll still update automatically, but you'll have access to the updatefile afterwards, instead of it being deleted after being applied.
