Arrow Kindle 4 +++ Auto Changing Screensaver's PNG Quotes

Hi,
My name's Dmitry. Dmitry from Russia.

A couple of days ago I thought if I could use my old Kindle 4 as a screen on my table, while Iím doing my daily work at the computer, so it could show me a new quote which I donít know, and doing it with an interval say 5 minutes for a little pause to think about every read quote.
Generally, itís pretty old e-reader and reading on it is much difficult than on modern e-readers.
The only question for this idea is (I really think someone has already used this in his own similar situation) if Kindle 4 can show images (PNG with a quotes) automatically changing them without need of any action with the Kindle itself except watching its screen for several hours or more.
So it would be cool to see one of N quote among the thousands within 2Gb memory on it and think about every new read quote within 5 minutes. AhhÖ what a nice idea! I hope it'll catch fancy someone else and does really hope itís really possible!

P.S.
I spent some time trying to use custom screensaver images without jailbreak, but Kindle did not change it automatically without an action from my side (I mean pressing lock button). Maybe Screensaver Hack is my hero?

I'll repeat the key thing: looking for a possibility to make somehow screensaver's images to be auto changing with an interval jailbroken or not.


Thanks for the interest.

Best.
