Question Are the active contents from Kindle Store gone?

Hi!

I noticed that Amazon has recently deleted all its "active contents" from Kindle Store. My Keyboard says: (whatever active content I choose) "Not currently available". The website doesn't find anything if I search for them.

Are they gone for ever?

Why didn't they make them freely available?

Because they stopped working at some point. Yes they may still work with your K3, but Amazon felt it was just easier to remove them and solve any support problems that may come up.

amazon removed the ability to use them many firmware versions ago.

Amazon cannot just give away other’s intellectual property.

My guess is that the ability to run active content left security holes in the firmware that allowed jailbreaking. So Amazon removed active content to close those holes.
