Oh, and just to briefly add to my previous reply: I don't have knowledge in programming. Usually do pretty well following recipes and all, but can't really get into the code... thanks!

I'd be happy to pay if someone would sell jailbroken kindles ready to go with KindleLazy installed. Those would sell like hotcakes ��!

Hi katadelos, and/or anyone else that might be able to help a fellow lazy kindler out!

So, I was able to confirm that the kernel on my PW1 is of an earlier version than the PW3. I just wanted to kindly ask if there's any possible hope to get KindleLazy working on a PW1 without getting deep into the coding of the app, or not.

The main reason is that then I can give up on this fun little project and know that I did all I could I enjoyed learning about Kindle jailbreaking, and will be hoping Amazon decides to have built-in bluetooth input functionality in their future kindles (I'm a very hopeful person sometimes...)

Thanks so much!

Below is the response I got when I queried the kernel version after SSHing into my PW1.

It's probably possible to get KindleLazy running on your device but it would likely be a tedious process that would involve some work on your part.

The most important thing that you need to work out is whether your powered USB hub is detected by your Kindle.

If it is, then we might be able to help you to compile KindleLazy from source. The issue that you've got is that the release version of KindleLazy contains binaries and kernel modules that are against different libc and kernel versions to your PW1, meaning that the program will fail to run.

Kernel modules are relatively simple to compile for different Kindle models but the KindleLazy binaries themselves seem to require a bunch of X11 header files that you'd need to get hold of. You'd also need to pull some shared libraries from your Kindle.

2 things to try (if you're still interested in running it on your PW1):
  • Plug your USB hub into your Kindle and check the output from dmesg
  • Run the shell scripts in KindleLazy/bin from an SSH session and show us the output

I use a wireless 'presenter', it sends keys like page up, page down etc.
I specifically use this product: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SYK18T0



Github page - https://github.com/llakssz/KindleLazy/
Download from - https://github.com/llakssz/KindleLazy/releases
question: where can i pick up the wireless presenter you recommend? your amazon link doesn't work anymore and couldn't find anything on your github about compatible products.

This one would probably work, considering that it's almost identical to the one in the original amazon link.

From the images it looks like it uses a regular usb nub to make it wireless. The Kindle PW 4 has only a micro usb port; so how would this work? an adapter of some sort?

Many thanks!

EDIT: Ok on page 1 of the thread it talks about adapters. I get that.

But most importantly, would Koreader be supported with this? If not, I'm not sure I'm interested (such a picky ereader person I'm becoming lolzz)

Hi katadelos,

Thanks for all your help, but I decided to throw the towel here...

Since I had messed something up and it wasn't even letting me SSH via USB at this point, I was probably going to have to go back to factory settings, jailbreak one more time, to then try to SSH via wi-fi (which is where I stopped) to then be able to check if it was finally detecting the usb hub, and I think I run out of steam there. It was fun to get a bit into the guts of the PW, but I think I'll just wait for a miracle when the Kindle team takes the important decision of allowing Kindle to accept Bluetooth input...

I really appreciate all the attention you gave, and wish you all the best!

Does someone have a success story of this working for KT3? Or did we rule out that it's not possible? I read through all the posts and I didn't see a clear answer.

Thanks!
