As Amazon is making it increasingly difficult to obtain KF8/AZW3 using K4Mac, this post is no longer being actively maintained, and the info provided may be increasingly outdated. That said, if you want to try Method 2B (which at this writing reportedly works for ebooks published in 2022 and earlier, but no longer works for ebooks published starting 2023) ...
  • Make sure you are using K4Mac 1.31 or earlier.

  • Apply chmod -x (Method 2B), then download books using right-click on mouse and selecting "Download", or use menu bar "File > Download". Do NOT open the book. If you open the book, you end up with .kcr, in which case delete the book and re-download per above without opening it.

  • If chmod -x doesn't work, try: sudo chmod -x. Also, make sure the Kindle for Mac app is in your Applications folder. If you put it somewhere else, you'll need to modify the filepath accordingly.

  • If Calibre 6.x isn't working, make sure you're using tools v10.0.3 or later

  • Applying chmod -x to 1.25+ will cause K4Mac to crash every time you close the app.

  • Applying chmod -x to 1.30 & 1.31 will cause K4Mac to crash if you try to open and read a book (as opposed to just downloading it).
