Thanks to the entire community and their efforts to get this released! I really appreciate being able to have the book cover of the current book I'm reading be my screen saver again!

- Ran the new JB and got the "**** JAILBREAK ****" message on the bottom of my Settings screen. Yeah!

- Successfully installed "update_usbnet_0.14.N_install.bin" via an Update. Another Yeah!

- Tried to Update with each of the requisite files so I can run Kual, but "Update Your Kindle" remains greyed out no matter which file I put in the directory (separately).

BTW, I don't have the parental controls on.

What gives?

Video Storyboard:
* download a zip archive
* place contents on root of Kindle USB storage (not in /Documents)
* eject storage device
* remove USB cable
* home -> menu -> settings -> menu -> Update Kindle

Now all you have to do is record it and post it.

Just follow knc1's storyboard. Here's where you get the zip package.
Unzip it and place the 3 files in the KPW main directory.

You can tell if you are successful if you get the following (or similar) screen:

Just don't forget that you download a zip file containing another zipfile. It's the second zipfile that needs to be extracted to your Kindle root (outside the documents) folder.

Thanks -

And there are a couple of README files in there also - -
would not hurt the end-user to read them.

Finally got my own screensaver loaded into /usr/share/blanket/screensaver using KindleExplorer. Now I feel I own the PW again! Nice...
Yes that's a glass of wine in the back - only just spotted it now! (after posting)

That's great. I suspect the 'disable the light' cronjob works as well?
