list of kindle 3 screensavers

Does anybody have a list of the screensavers on the kindle 3? I have encountered one that is not an author. It looks like the cover of some old greek book but I have no idea what it is. I would love to know, if anyone knows where I can find out. Thanks!

I believe they're the same as the last Kindle. Here's a thread on the topic:

You can find all of the 23 Kindle screensavers here, and in the correct order:

Hello.
I'm trying to change my Kindle 3 screensaver but ...no result
I followed these directions:

1. Attach the Kindle to a computer using the USB cord.

2. Using Windows Explorer (or whatever you use to see individual files/folders) , you should see a new drive called Kindle under My Computer. Go to that drive. (Or if you have an SD card in your Kindle, you can go to the SD drive.)

3. Create a new folder called “pictures” and a subfolder called “screensavers” under it. Make sure both folder names are all lowercase.

4. Copy your image files into the screensavers folder. Your pictures should be 600×800 pixels and black & white. I’ve only used .jpg files. [[I've read that .gif and .png files work as well]]

5. After copying is complete & it is safe, eject the Kindle and remove the Kindle from the USB connection.

6. Go to your Home menu and press alt-z. This will create a new book called “screensavers”. Open it. You’ll see each of your pictures. You can advance through them with the prev. page and next page buttons. [[Note: The new book will appear at the END of your book list]]

7. While viewing your pictures, look at the bottom of the Kindle screen. If you see your battery indicator & Menu prompt, press alt-F to go into Full Screen mode.

8. On each photo, press alt-shift-0 (i.e., alt-shift-zero) . After a brief delay, you’ll get a message that your picture has been exported as screensaver. Click Close on the message.

9. Navigate to each of the pictures you want to use and repeat the above step.

10. When you’ve got all your pictures loaded, test them by going into & out of sleep mode. Alt-aA (i.e., alt-font size button) puts it to sleep & wakes it up again. Each time it sleeps, it should use a different image. If you see the same image all the time, relook at Step 3.


But I can't follow step 8 because I'd have to go into Sym to get to 0. What do I do?

shell22, if memory serves, those instructions were for a Kindle 1, and didn't work for a 2 or 3.

You might want to start here: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kind...nd_3.x_Kindles

Additionally, if you have a SO Kindle, part of what you agreed to when purchasing the SO was the advertisements, so the screen saver hack isn't designed to work with the SO versions.
