Of course, that was before we learned to decode the root password from serial MD5, and before new jailbreak methods. If it still works, perhaps a way into new locked kindles.

EDIT: Admittedly off-topic, but related to that date search command.

That is a WIP, to review all of the shortcuts, I should be able to answer sometime, RSN.

I get a "Message from ntupdate command was: Exiting, name server cannot be used: Temporary failure in name resolution (-3)" in the ntpdate log file. I have tried with different time servers, which I can access from other machines on my network just fine. PW4 running 5.11.2 and everything else works (coplate's latest KUAL, screensavers etc). I'm using the json per the red comment in the first post, and when I edited the npdate.conf I used Notepad++ so retained UNIX line endings.

Any ideas please?

Is your kindle networked to the internet or only your LAN? If the latter, are any of the computers on your LAN NTP servers? For example, any linux computer running ntpd can be an NTP server.

I didn't read close enough the first time.

It looks like DNS lookup is misconfigured on your kindle.

I don't remember whether NTP utilities require domain names for some reason or will work with IP addresses. You can try substituting NTP server IP addresses for their domain names and see if that works. I think it should.

Good thinking! Replaced them all with IP addresses and the log says all successful... however, it doesn’t actually change my Kindle time!

Think I’ll stick to doing it manually!
