hey NiLuJe, what are the symptoms of this.

I may have someone on the PW4 having a related issue, he sees *BRIDGE* on the screen, but when he tries to reinstall a package I sent him, he gets Update erro 7 ( im assuming bad key ).

So it is though the jailbreak is lost, but the bridge is still working.


===
ah I found it, it is the same problem as KOA2
# Handle the fact that the KOA2 switched to an all-new partition layout (àla Android)
# NOTE: For some mysterious reason, rdev's output doesn't match what we can get from the elektra db via:
# echo "$(kdb get system/driver/filesystem/DEV_ROOT)$(kdb get system/driver/filesystem/DEV_PART_ROOTFS)"
# while that was true on previous models...
# FWIW, kdb returns /dev/mmcblk2p4 instead of rdev's p5... :?
if [ "${IS_KOA2}" == "true" ] ; then
ROOTPART="mmcblk2p5"
fi

It looks like we need to handle this for new PW4 as well.

rdev gives /dev/mmcblk1p8


After I changed that, this folder also doesn't exist so it gives a warning trying to copy the file:

/var/local/java/keystore


I can try to make changes to the source control, if you have one I can do pull requests in, otherwise I see you already added an IS_PW4 flag, we just may need a few more changes.

@coplate: It's an old SVN tree, so PRs are going to be tricky, but at least you can generate a patch .

In the meantime, I'll fix what you've just mentioned .

I *guess* keystore being gone makes some sense, given the fact that this one will definitely never support Kindlets... .

Which reminds me, I forgot to check those KOA2 quirks entirely, so, USBNet might be a question mark, too, since it was so finicky on the KOA2...

EDIT: And that should be the only question mark left, if the rootfs swap in the bridge does the trick .

Any thoughts?

I've done it 2 more times, and it has succeeded, so I don't know what had happened.

I vaguely remember a few specific FW versions in which otaupd sometimes lost its mind, but that was a while ago...

Gremlins? .

definitely gremlins.

Or I wonder if I accedentally hit restart instead of update, and that casues some issues.

I was clearly getting tired, so I have to take a break

Yay! This hotfix fixed my KT2 that just updated itself to 5.10.1.1
Thanks!!
I really appreciate all the work you guys do.

Now to see if I can figure out why only the first screensaver image is used...

@CNL: Badly encoded/formatted/named images will be discarded and/or cause the Kindle to stop trying to use new screensavers.

(I use "badly" in a rather broad sense, meaning whatever the Kindle might not like).

I've been trying to isolate a bad image, and I can't figure it out.
I can get all of them to work individually, but when I put more than one image in the screensavers folder it just displays bg_ss00.png repeatedly. It isn't putting anything in the discarded folder. Maybe it just isn't cycling through them?
It likes to display a black screen sometimes too.

I've been putting files into "linkss\screensavers" and then using "clear cover cache" and "restart framework now".

At least I can pick the one image to display by changing out the file periodically.

@CNL: It takes a restart (of the framework, at least) to get out of the loop as soon as it hits anything it doesn't like.
