So now you have /cr3-kindle-2012-10-04/cr3, /cr3-kindle-2012-10-04/qtKindle, /cr3-kindle-2012-10-04/usrapp directories while you need to have /cr3, /qtKindle, /usrapp.
Thanks for this, hopefully it gets me a little closer. In my root folder I now have these directories:


I didn't replace the original 'documents' directory with the new one, since I didn't want to lose all my documents. I just dragged the cr3runner-3.0.azw2 file from /dist-kt/documents into the existing /documents directory, which hopefully amounts to the same thing.

I now get the Cool Reader icon (a book with the name in cursive font) in the main menu list of items on my Kindle. When I tap on it the screen goes black for a second, which seems promising, but then it goes right back to the menu. So it doesn't quite seem to be working still.

Any further thoughts on what's going wrong here are much appreciated.
