Just follow the directions on that page in the first sentence of the section headed:
"Download Source Files" (the first sentence of which is actually how to download the binaries).

Hi, I just wonder for my kindle DXG with FW3.2.1, which version of update_*_bin and font_*_ should I use ? I updated my device from 2.5.8 to 3.2.1 exactly with the method of Yifan Lu:http://yifan.lu/2011/05/29/kindle-3-...e-dx-released/

Now, what I actually want is to change the original Chinese fonts.

Thanks !

@ordijk: Here be dragons (that, and I still can't remember how this is supposed to work, after all this time). I *think* the .bin for your actual physical device (ie. DX), but with the linkfonts folder from a package targeting FW 3.x

Exactly! I use .bin for dxg, then copy the linkfonts folder from k3/src. It works perfectly.

Thanks a lot !

If Python doesn't install

I had troubles installing python and so got no covers for the screen saver.

With the help of NiLuJe the problem was resolved the following way:
  1. uninstall jailbreak 10
  2. reboot
  3. install jailbreak 11
  4. reboot
  5. install python
  6. reboot

I hope that will help some one.

Released Python 0.7.N, ScreenSavers 0.40.N, Fonts 5.11.N, USBNetwork 0.51.N.

The usual binaries update, with a few cover mode fixes for the ScreenSavers hack .

EDIT: Forgot to mention that the FT update in the Fonts hack might bring significant rendering changes for anything using the autohinter (the autohint & light FT overrides).

Oops... ScreenSavers 0.41.N ^^.

Fix a tiny bit of what should have been fixed in 0.40.N regarding the cover detection, and a preview KUAL button for the cover mode.

*
*Note for Kindle 3.0.x, 3.1.x & 3.2 Users*

Please use the file corresponding to your kindle model suffixed by -3.0-to-3.2, the other one won't work on these older FW versions, while this one won't work on newer FW versions. Check your Settings page if you're unsure of what FW your Kindle is running.

Surprised you couldn't find it... what with your mad search skills and all....

Released USBNet 0.52.N .

This is the one we were talking about! So, here comes the full OpenSSH suite, and not just the sshd server anymore. Plus, sshfs .

In case people were using scp programmatically: I switched the scp symlink to point to OpenSSH's scp instead of dropbear's.

I'm assuming people know how to use sshfs, but just a couple of notes:

* The target's hostkey needs to be known, so you need to connect to it once with ssh.
* On FW 2.x (at least, possibly 3.x too), fusermount -u returns a completely idiotic error and doesn't unmount anything. umount works fine.
* On FW 2.x (& possibly 3.x), you'll have to stop netwatchd to prevent it from killing your outgoing connections.

Thanks to twobob for pushing everyone to look at this, I now have something to back my usual 'try sshfs!' response when people ask for a way to access remote storage from their Kindle .

Ok, so I'm having a bit of an issue I can't figure out. I have a kindle 3 wifi with firmware 3.4 installed and a while ago I had installed the jailbreak and ss hack. I just recently tried to add images to the screensavers, and all the new images just skip. As far as I know nothing's wrong with the images, so I decided to hop back on here to see what can be done. Looking at the changelog, I see that many features have been added, and now I want to update, but don't know how.

Do I need to uninstall the versions already on my device? I know the ss hack is 0.20.N, but don't know installed jailbreak version. I believe I installed when my kindle was 3.2.1. Do I need the old uninstallers, and where can I find them?

@farraman: Nope, you don't need the old uninstallers, you can use the ones from the latest packages .

Given the amount of time that passed since you jailbroke your Kindle, I'm gonna assume it's not up to date, so you'll first need to uninstall the jailbreak, then install the latest version.
Once that's done, you can simply install the new version of the ss hack on top of the old one, it'll take care of everything .

@NiLuJe Thank you so much. I was thinking it'd be a much harder process than that. Will update to confirm it works.

EDIT: Ok, quick issue since you're here. I was able to uninstall just fine, but when I try to install the new jailbreak, it gives an error 'another jailbreak found, aborting ...'

I will try running the uninstaller again and retry.

Reread the troubleshooting guide again, saw that kindle needs to be unplugged, possibly the issue. (nope, still found another jailbreak)

I have run uninstallers for the 0.11.N, and both of yifanlu's 0.4.0 and 0.5.1 jailbreaks. I thought covering all my bases would do the trick. Well, it did something. After restarting the kindle and trying to update with the new 0.11.N, it no longer shows 'found another jailbreak' but simply fails with U007, so progress? still working on this.

After failing for a while, I just let it sit for a while to let it think about what it's done. I came back, restarted the kindle and tried updating and it worked. Not sure what all I was doing wrong, but it's finally updated and things are working.

I recently purchased a Kindle DX Graphite (SN: B009 etc.) running 2.5.8. I've tried the method described in the OP, repeatedly and to a T, but every time I update, about 1/5 of the way through it says "The update was not successful. Your Kindle is restarting..." I'm using the installer for dxg...what am I doing wrong?
Edit: just noticed, there's an error in the bottom left, "U006"
EditEdit: Oh. Haha...my bad. Thanks for the awesome forum! Cheers!
