Screensaver to book cover for Kindle WP63GW?

Hello,

I tried searching before posting here but alas for all I have tried I was not able to find the "codename" for my Kindle WP63GW (Wi-fi) in order to search for the appropriate soft/steps.

From what I have read on the Kindle Wiki the Kindle WP63GW model is actual a K7? I hope I got that right. But searching throughout the the MR forum I was not able to find any appropriate documentation for my model.

Would some be so kind and provide me with a link for it or maybe tell me what should I actually be looking for?

Thank you in advance.

1) Look up your device's serial number on the "Device Info" panel of settings (or at your account's "Manage Devices" web page tab).
2) Note the first six (6) characters of the serial number.
3) Look that serial number prefix up in this table:

@Crusher: Given your queries, I'm going to assume your device is NOT jailbroken.

Which is too bad, because your firmware is one tiny minor version too recent for you to actually be able to jailbreak it, which renders the whole screensavers situation moot.

Thank you nonetheless.

Can't I change the Firmware of my Kindle?

Yes, if you are capable of a serial port jailbreak. This does involve opening the case and working with delicate connections that are easy to destroy and particular about the equipment used to communicate with them.

If you believe you are up to it see the thread on serial port jailbreak.

I guess the default screensavers will have to be enough for the time being ... until maybe I'll upgrade to a Paperwhite model.
