Long-time forum reader. First time poster.
Been following this thread ever since my Kindle Paperwhite arrived on my desk on 2 Nov 2012. It was a good day, that day.
First e-ink reader I ever bought, and what a device!
Wanted the currently-read-book-cover-as-screensaver feature. Cannot for the life of me fathom why Amazon doesn't offer this as a built-in feature.
So here I am.
I read, re-read, and then re-read the instructions. Then I read them again. Then I did what they said, exactly.
And ya know what? It all Just Worked(TM), in exactly the way the instructions said it would.
And so now I have a freed Kindle, and I did the screensaver hack, and now I have a kindle that shows me the cover of my currently-read book when in sleep mode.
THANK YOU ixtab and NiLuJe for this. Love your work!
