Question How to extract Kindle's original screensaver images

I have a Kindle Paperwhite (it says 10th gen, whatever that means) with the original 5.16.7 OS.

I would like to extract the builtin screensaver pictures to use on my PC.

Is there a way to extract them without jailbreaking the Kindle? Can I extract them from one of the official ".bin" update files? (I will try getting one of those, but if they are encrypted or compressed, I won't be able to extract anything.)

Has anybody already extracted them and posted them somewhere?

Thanks

There is no way to extract them from a kindle unless it has been jailbroken.

Yes, they can be extracted from an official ".bin" update file using kindletool.

It would probably be a copyright violation to post them.

If your Kindle is jailbroken, the screensaver assets are in the directory
Code:
/usr/share/blanket/screensaver
.
