Kindle 4 KUAL Issue

Hi everyone

My first post!

I've been given a Kindle 4, 2011 (silver paddle edition), running firmware 4.1.3.

I've factory reset the device, and ran jailbreak kindle-k4-jailbreak-1.8.N-r16252. That went through no issues at all, and I see the book.

On the below, I have read the instructions, ensuring files are to my specific device

Installed kindle-mkk-20141129-r16572. That seemed to install without any issues - I didn't see any errors.

Installed KUAL-v2.7.21-g3928582-20190724.

I see the KUAL book in my library, I run it, and get:

An error occured:Main class instantiation threw a RuntimeException. Please contact the developer.


Reading this can happen on the first run, I waited 30 secs and run again, got the same message. I've checked the folder structure of the kit, and don't see the extensions folder from what I've read.

I re-run kindle-mkk-20141129-r16572 just to make sure, didn't do much though.

At the moment, I've done another factory reset and left the kit as it is as wasn't too sure what else to try

Hope someone can help!

Which KUAL variant would that be (there are... four. >_<").

(Spoiler alert: you *need* the KDK-1 one, no exceptions on a K4).

Check that the date/time is sane on your device, reboot, and if that doesn't help, check the logs (;dm in the search bar).

EDIT: Double-checked, no issues on my end (4.1.3; 4.1.4).

Thankyou, I've re-run all the commands and checked the time, all appear to be good.

Have the same error message, I've got the log file up, and I also have a crash.log file under [developer/KUAL/work/]

That IS NOT the KDK-1 document, that is one of the Series 5 booklet versions (not the document version - you want the document version for a K4; see: this thread, second post).

Strange, can I just check I'm looking at this-

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=225030

and downloading this:

KUAL-v2.7.21-g3928582-20190724.tar.xz

Extracting KDK-1, then installing?

@Tired: Extracting the KDK-1 variant (and putting it somewhere in documents/), then nothing .

The .bin will install the Booklet, which you can't use on a K4.

While looking at the extracted *.tar.xz contents, find:
KUAL-KDK-1.0.azw2
Which is a Kindle format, azw2 (no shit), document.
Move that file to the topmost, USB visible, /document directory (because it is a document).

That extracted *.tar.xz archive also contains a plain text file titled:
README.txt
Where you can also find:

Run it by clicking new kindlet document in your list.

That's exactly what I did, wonder whether my kindle is just possessed by the devil then, refusing to co-operate

I'm guessing you did *both*, and just happen to be clicking on the Booklet one.

The uninstall .bin should get rid of the Booklet one.

Honestly, I didn't copy the bin file over, I just did the KDK-1 file. I'll give it another go now. I'm obviously doing something stupid - I'll write it all down as I do it

Well, logs generally don't lie, and it's very much trying to load a KUAL Booklet. That cannot make its way to a launchable state without a .bin .
