That left a KUAL doc in my book menu. Trying to open it just gives white screen with top bar.

I also installed the screensavers hack + python, and that seems to work fine (can see the success screen on going into screensaver), but it's hard to configure that without KUAL.

Thanks!
Uninstalling KUAL via KUAL-v2.7.12-g9623dd8-20181108.tar.xz left a broken KUAL doc entry.

I guess I don't care since installing the KUALBooklet-coplate-d20a095-20181108.zip made it work again properly and not duplicated, but someone who just wanted to keep KUAL removed might mind.

@3QVKwyNT9hR849t7: You really ought to have read the FAQ . Both of these issues are detailed in there.

To be fair I did read the FAQ back when I was here with a PW3, for some reason it just didn't really occur to me that it would have new info, so yeah, my bad.

Hello,

I got a new PW3, in addition to my Touch. Both are jailbroken with 5.6.5, both have KUAL. But on the Touch I do not have the azw3 book that opens KUAL, there I only click on the store opening KUAL. On the PW3 I have the book. Both devices have the AZW3 file in documents tough.

How can I make the book invisible? I only want to get to KUAL with the store button?
I do not remember how I did it on the touch, did that years ago.

@lordofazeroth: You're obviously confused. The final FW of the Kindle Touch is FW 5.3.7.3.

IIRC, the store button trick stopped working a crapload of time ago, I doubt you'd be able to get that working on FW 5.6.5.

if you can't see the button in the KUAL menu w/ the KUAL+extension installed, then it's unsupported on your device.

Sorry, I meant Kindle, 7th generation:

WP63GW,

https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custo...8e38532213b48b

Can I still make the book invisible on the PW3?
What do you mean by button trick?

For future reference, look up this table for device names, because Amazon's marketing names are mindbogglingly unhelpful .

If you're already tweaked the store button, I'd imagine masking the KUAL Kindlet involves playing with Collections in one way or another... No idea how that works, and if you even can do it directly on FW 5.6.5. (You may have inherited that from something that could be done on earlier FW).

. . . . .

There are only 4 models that are referred to as "7th generation".
And then there is the model that is referred to as "4th or 5th Generation"
And then there is the disclaimer about the naming not being geographically consistent.

All you have to do is use:
Code:
If ...
Then ...
Else Maybe ...
scripting statements.

Sorry, the model number on the amazon lists WP63GW.

I am currently at work, so I cannot take a look at the serial number

Sorry again

You posted the above, so you have web access ...
The serial number is shown on your Amazon account "Manage Devices and Content" page.

Nobody can help you unless we know the exact model number (first six characters of the serial number).
It really does make a difference, if it did not make a difference, your serial number would be six characters shorter.

Ok, The device I would like to get rid of the book kindle launcher (but not the KUAL menu by pressing shopping cart) is a G090G1, the device this already works is a 90C6.

So, PW3 and KT2.

The KT2 was released on FW 5.6.0, which was post-collections shenanigans.

My best guess is you toggled the item's visibility in Home via Collections Manager?

KUAL installation failing using MRPI

@NiLuJe:

First of all, thank you so much for all of your work and development on jailbreaking Kindles - it is appreciated more than you know!

I got a Kindle Paperwhite (FW: 5.10.0.2, Serial G000 T610...) as an early Christmas present, and am working to Jailbreak it so that I can use Calibre's Collections Manager to manage collections. As far as I can tell, I've successfully jailbroken the Kindle (is there any way to verify this?)

I also installed Mobile Read Package Installer (per https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=203326) fFrom what I can tell it was just unzipping the file and copying it to the root of my Kindle.

Next, I'm trying to use ;log mrpi to install the correct KUAL package, which I found here (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...&postcount=304) - it's the new coplate booklet version.

I've dragged the .bin update file into the mrpackages folder, then I go into the search bar and type in ;log mrpi

but then nothing happens. No kindle restart, nothing. No KUAL doc in My Library.

Am I doing something incorrectly? Any thoughts or guidance on next steps?

Thank you in advance for any insight you could offer!!

Your device isn't jailbroken yet. It would have a You are Jailbroken txt file in the documents folder if jailbreak had succeeded.

Note, you're not supposed to copy the kindle-jb-factory-1.2-r15011.tar file to your Kindle directly. You need to extract that tar file first and copy main-htmlviewer.tar.gz to the Kindle root. Pretty much all the tar.xz packages on NiLuJe's snapshots, you have to extract twice on Windows if using 7-zip.

Dunno about WinRAR. I'm using an old version that doesn't support tar.xz archives.
