Calibre won't send books to my Jailbroken Voyage

I need some help. I've got a Voyage, Jailbroken using the methods here, and updated to 5.8.7.0.1.

Recently I decided to clean up my Voyage, so I copied the entire Documents folder to my hard drive, and then deleted almost everything in it.

Now whether I sideload a mobi into Document from my computer, or use Calibre to do it, the Voyage doesn't show the new book.

Plugged into the usb cable, the books show up, and they also show up in Calibre, but not on the kindle list of books themselves, and search doesn't find them either.

Is it possible that somehow my Voyage isn't indexing new books?

What can I do to fix this, as it's making my Kindle useless for adding new books by sideload.

thanks for any help, this is puzzling to me.

You don't mention the metadata folder and files for each book ("*.sdr"), so I assume you didn't delete those.

We have posted here, somewhere, a script that will clean up the mess you made of the Kindle files.

I deleted everything from the Documents folder. Some of my books seem to have meta data, and others do not appear to have it. Is that the problem?

Where and what is the script?

Seems to be working okay now. I had particular problems with some DocX files that I converted in Calibre to mobi and sent to kindle using Calibre. I ended up sending them to my kindle email address, and then they showed up on the Kindle.

thanks for the help.

Hi guys,

I've bought a pre-owned Oasis 2, probably updated by the pre-owner. The device was originally bought from Amazon Germany on 24.10.2018. Her are the device infos:

Serial: G000 P812 8144 0190
Firmware version: 5.10.2 (3374510058)

Is there any chance to jailbreak the device (without searching this serial port)? My old Voyage was jailbroken to show the book covers as screensavers, a feature I like very much and would like to have it on my KOA2, too.

Thanks a lot for your support, regards!
Frank

There is no software jailbreak for 5.10.2

There have been no reports of finding the serial port for KOA2.

There have been no reports of successfully opening the case of a KOA2 without large amounts of physical damage.

And this solution I read about (downgrade to an older firmware version and then software jailbreak) isn't possible for KOA2?

For some years the firmware does not allow installing previous versions. That is reason serial port methods are required to install older firmware versions. (And no known way to get to KOA2 serial port, if it even exists on the circuit board.)

Seems that I have to arrange myself to the terrible amazon screensavers.

Either that or get yourself another Kindle that you can JB and sell this one to someone who can live with the Oasis as Amazon offers it.

Hi Dave,
of course I will keep it. The idea with the screensaver was only to make a real good thing a little better as it always is. So maybe (hopefully) someday someone will find a way....
Regards!
