Update Library After Scp Books Without reboot

I use usbnetwork to access my kindle dx. Pretty straight forward.

I could scp my books into my kindle without interrupt my reading.
But every time I scp my books, I need to reboot my kindle. That's a little bit disturbing.

Anyone know any hack or command to update my kindle library without reboot?

You could try ;debugOn the ~reloadContentRoster see if that does the job.

Make sure to turn off debug after you're done though. It significantly increases the amount of logging done when you have it enabled.

I am maybee wrong, but does alt - q (or z) do the trick on kindle dx ?

on kindle k3, it seems to reload the library (but haven't try with usbnetwork scp.. so I am maybee wrong).

If you want to do it from the command line then you could try killing the Kindle reader process and hopefully it will restart it and not actually reboot the entire Kindle.

I imagine from the command line 'framework -restart' should do it but its not quick.

The book app must be waiting for any event come up to trigger update process. Must be some fake this kind for event by some command.

You could try sending an usbUnconfigured or usbPlugOut event, see if that makes the framework reparse the userstore...

Code:
/usr/bin/lipc-send-event -r 3 com.lab126.hal usbUnconfigured

I tried usbPlugOut but it didn't seem to have an effect I will give usbConfigured a go.

How about this one? Hit the following command on terminal.

% dbus-send --system /default com.lab126.powerd.resuming int32:1

I can do update the contents on home screen of K3-Wifi even if I add some files into documents directory without usb drive mode.

Question

I know this is an ollld thread, but I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck with the same kind of thing, but for the music folder & builtin music app? (Neither the usual dbus-send nor the usbUnconfigured/usbPlugOut make a difference.)

EDIT: I worked around this issue by ditching the stock player for fbdev's awesome kinamp (frontend/gui for mplayer). I would have used straight mplayer from this thread sooner, but it has steady 50% cpu usage on my Kindle, whereas the mplayer fbdev compiled tends to use ~9%, similiar to the built-in player.
