Has disable sleep ~ds search command been removed in latest firmware?

The above was posted in the parent Amazon Kindle forum. It works fine for me on the KOA2 at 5.9.0.6 and the KV at 5.8.11

Can anyone confirm whether or not it is missing from any Kindle device at the most firmware version?

That is easy to check on for yourself (and us) -
Download the Amazon update image -
Open with KindlTool -
take rootfs.img out the resultant archive -
mount it -
look -
report back.

OK, I found the git repository for kindletool, and built it.

I downloaded 5.9.2.0.1 for the KOA2 since I might want to install it someday. extracted and mounted the image, and found /usr/bin/ds.sh

I'm very disappointed they actually use the misleading property name preventScreenSaver

I also found /usr/bin/deleteDemoModeFlagFile.sh which sets preventScreenSaver to 0, but one of the other 23 lines keeps that from working as a search string and is way too long to type anyway.

I don't have a PW*, so I'm not going to download any of those images.

For our readers:
You can get the latest binaries of KindleTool from NiLuJe's snapshots thread:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=225030
@j.p.s: Sorry, I forgot to mention where to get the binary.

Another thing I forgot to mention was how to find the name of the file.
Search the forum for "Search bar shortcuts" -
There are a number of those posts here and at least some of them give the path and file name.

But thanks a lot for looking up the information.
There are a lot of people who read our postings, people who are not (yet) members ...
So (re-)posting brief instructions on how to learn about the Kindle system was mostly aimed at our non-member audience.
