@Mikemk: Most likely broken date/time. You can either let it correct over WiFi/3G, or do it manually (;setDate).

You can also double-check that it's not simply that you received an OTA update you failed to notice, and that you just need to reinstall it .

;setDate did nothing, but connecting to wifi fixed the issue, thank you. Why exactly does having a correct date matter though?

I wonder how the date got messed up.

@Mikemk: Because you need a sane date/time to be able to figure out which book was opened last . (In the same vein, your "by Recent" sort was probably subtly broken, too).

(FWIW, you have to feed a *nix epoch timestamp (as given by date +%s f.g.) to ;setDate for it to do something ).

Hi.
I'm unable to install Python. I have Kindle Touch B011, restored with Kubrick, updated to latest 5.3.7.3. Jailbroken (1.14.N), USBNet installed (v0.21.N). All went well. KUAL as well.
However with Python, Update Your Kindle is greyed. I tried Update_python_0.14.N_install_touch_pw.bin and Update_python_0.15.N_install_touch_pw.bin - either by copying via USB or pushing to /mnt/us via SCP. Still, Update Your Kindle is grey. The file disappears automatically, if copied over USB MS, upon disconnect.
The device is not registered on Amazon, but it is connected to WiFi. Date seems to be fine (when checked in shell).

I might be missing something obvious, any tips?

Thanks!

@aleq: Use MRPI. (Except, as usual, with the packages from the Snapshots).

@NiLuJe
although I may not fully understand the statement in parethesis (as I even tried the python package fron Snapshots without MRPI), I used MRPI now and that did the trick. Thanks again!

Simply that I'm recommending you to use the snapshots, and not the current release. (i.e., rolling-release style).

And that the snapshots packages will only install through MRPI anyway .
