This is definitely android built for kindle by amazon.


I installed one of the APK, and I dont have all the depencies, but it did load up, it wants me to log into some page that is in chinese, I assume the partner amazon went with there.

@knc1 what do you think the odds are that paperwhite update 6.x when we get it will be this android version?


With them really scraping update numbers in the 5.x range, I feel like they may be planning a big change

Firmware series 6.x.y IS Android.

Two points, that if I where making the product change decision:
1) Amazon/Linux is much more secure than Google/Linux (Android) - everybody alive can root Android
2) Only the newest Oasis has the hardware resources to run Android in a reasonable manner.
(The Chinese Android for the Paperwhite and others is only "bragging rights" - not really practical)

With J. Bezo's strong feelings against after-market add-ins and being able to keep control of their e-book readers, I would say that (1) would be the decision point to not change to the less secure system.

I guess, what we have found in this thread that Mr.Samuel posted is that Amazon has an official Android build for the Kindle basic touch ( Kindle Migu in China ). They call it 5.7.2.1 in that market.

https://www.amazon.cn/gp/help/custom...deId=202167860


I'm wondering why amazon built that android version only for china market, and would not port it to the rest of the works in everything newer.

That is not for the KT3, that is an update for one of the Kindle Fire devices.

The KT3 update is here:

I think you may have missed a post. REcently we found out about the software update for the Kindle X "Migu" device.

This isn't for the "KT 3" precisely, it is form the "Kindle X", sold only in china - One of my links meant to go to the store, but I double linked to the software update page. https://www.amazon.cn/dp/B01I235KH4

Thats the product listing on amazon.cn, where we can see that it is an e-ink device.

Goodereader is the place that says it is the same hardware as the kindle basic touch, (167 ppi) at least.

I downloaded the amazon firmware for that, and installed one of the APK from it on the android emulator, and the program matches the user videos of the e-ink kindle X on the amazon.cn web site.


The properties files I have been able to extract show it is for the same named 'heisenberg' line as these later gen kindles like pw3 and kt3.

Code:
DEFCONFIG_NAME="imx_heisenberg_defconfig"
Code:
mfg="Amazon"
board="wario"

And it has the kernel modules for the e-ink screen: /lib/modules/mxc_epdc_eink.ko

< attached is the e-ink waveforem update script from the android image downloaded form Amazon.cn >


Although I should recognize it is also possible that they have gone the other way - and put an e-ink screen on the fire tablet line - the case shown on the store looks identical to the basic kindle side by side.

How to install the apk? Like install other apks download from the market directly? Or put the lib folder inside the apk and install?
I looked into the apk file and find there is no /lib folder inside the apk.

Besides,there seems the Kindle x Migu's system has no package installer to install third-party apps.

What I mean is that I installed the 'Android Studio' from google - to be a android developer.

Then I created an Android Virtual Device running lollipop inside that.

Then I used the android developer tools to copy one of the APK files from the Migu system image I downloaded into the the Android Virtual Device I had running on my computer.

OH, the very highest possible recommendation (and reputation) web-site.

Normally, they only lift information from this site, add dramatization and ...

Nearly as easy to believe as links that never got posted.

Emmmmm…I've been typing so many words, before I could send it, is it gone?
“Migu” is a web of e-bookstore,in China,some e-bookstore have e-ink device. The difference is they make these e-ink from themselves. But they alway include some of the finished books. But many people read the novel that has no end. I like read these novel by "Jinjiang",many boys like read these novel by "Qidian"

The top of post #4 is probably the best answer to your question.

To reiterate - brush means flash or flashing (an image / firmware / rom / etc)

This file is really an ext4 filesystem (you can check with "file" command).

Mount it:

mkdir droid
mount -o loop -t ext4 esystem.bin droid

Now look inside:

cd droid
ls

you see the android filesystem (app/priv-app/etc)

I used apktool to decompile all apks, and found an interesting one JSONClient.apk.
It has code to force itself to be the default launcher, and lock out all other apps. It also checks the device serial number, etc. So it is almost certainly the registration check.

I used a java decompiler to read the code and found that it uses a jni library "libjnidemo.so" (LOL) to create some kind of hash of the serial number, upload it to kdroid.net, and check the result.

Rather than try to crack it I think that you could just delete that apk and then install the modified image.
It stops at "starting apps" after installing the modified image. Could you give some help, thanks very much!
