KNC1 - what's with the snotty response?

We can not be expected to support every site in the world that posts something on the subject of "Kindle". It just isn't possible.
I'm trying to help debug a specific plugin called 'collections manager' - not 'kindle' - have you blundered in from another thread?

If you can help, let's hear it. If you can't, let's hear silence, maybe?

No quite.
You want us to debug the instructions published on ereader-palace that you followed. That is the job of the ereader-palace support people, not us.

You want help with our instructions, then use our instructions.

If you want to fix your problem, I am sure it is within your own ability to fix it, IF you start by reading the first post of this thread, followed by package instructions, followed by additional reading as indicated.

(I think you will discover that it isn't intended to work on your combination of hardware/firmware. )

@petercz1: FW 5.4.4.2 *might* be supported. 5.4.4/5.4.4.1, *maybe* not.

Everything is terrible, as is explained in the first post.

If you can adapt your workflow, LibrarianSync is slightly less at the whims of Amazon's fuckery.

@NiLuJe - thanks for the decent response!

Excellent tip - I thought that FW 5.4.4 on my kindle was just missing the final digit ie it is not 5.4.4.(0/1/2) (for anyone else trying to figure out this stuff)

I'll track down 5.4.4.2 and try that, Also LibrarianSync looks like a good option if it will work on a PW1. Will investigate and report back yes/no to help others.

Cheers!

@NiLuJe - you are the man!

Whoop! It works a treat with FW 5.4.4.2

I can confirm ereader-palace instructions are correct when using 5.4.4.2.

For anyone else who struggled with getting a PW1 downgraded and CM working, here's the link to ereader-palace instructions:

This was a textbook example of why third party documentation is generally terrible, for all parties involved.

Case in point:

* Let's start with the most obvious, because it's a good one: you don't even need to downgrade a PW1 to JB it, the EOL FW is likely to be vulnerable to BD's JB.

* You don't need to roam the internet to get an old production FW release: just go to the Amazon Kindle Software Update Page for your device, get the link of the latest FW, tweak the version in the link: voilà!

* Every time you see someone bundling content they've not created, run like the wind: it's at best utterly outdated, at worst might do unspeakable things to you or your system.
I'll assume it's simply outdated here, which is still highly problematic, as the bridge has since seen numerous updates to deal with later FWs properly, or even just current annex content.

Writing good documentation is *hard*, even when you know what you're talking about.

There's a big difference between writing "here's how you do it" and "here's how I do it": the former takes on the harsh mantle of documentation, so it better be damn fucking good, while the latter is simply a story. Everyone loves a good story, it doesn't have to be particularly accurate, or keep being even in the ballpark of accurate a few months later . You just have to realize that's what it is.

And, this should go without mention, but anything that doesn't even mention its sources is to be avoided like the plague.

Look at the index page for this forum (one bread-crumb back from here).
Find the Title: Collections Manager (you got that, since your reading this).
Note at the right hand side of the "Title" column, a small, blue box.
Click the box.
A window will open which lists the attachments to this thread (151 of them as of today).
Scroll through the special packages of CM for one described as working on the version of firmware and version of hardware you are interested in, download that one.

Why this funky organization?
The author is long gone and firmware/hardware combinations are being provided by people other than the author as special case attachments.

PS: There is no way in hell you are going to find all of those special case CM builds on ereader-palace. They are about 150 builds behind the times.


And I second NiLuJe's note - always get your original firmware packages from the Amazon server.

PS: There was a URL path change early in the 5.x series of firmware, but they are still available.
Older ones at the older URL path, newer ones at the newer URL path, and a bit of browsing here will find you the text of both forms of the download pathname.

Crickey. And we could have saved a lot of oxygen by just saying 'try 5.4.4.2 instead of 5.4.4'...
