No, it is just that you probably only had to re-boot it.
If a simple re-boot had not fixed it, that would have been useful information.

I'll just wait for the next person with a KOA to complain that things are broke.

dead after reboot?

This works fine on my kindle paperwhite 5th generation with system 5.3.3, but it won't survive a reboot.

If I reboot the kindle then I have to re-istall the screensavers hack.

Is this an expected behavior?

Thanks.

No.

Is your Kindle subscribed to special offers (advertisements)?

Do you mean "reboot" (as with a long press of the power button) or a "reset" from the settings menu?
Reboot - not expected
Reset - expected

Hi knc1, thank you for getting back to me.
1., no I am not subscribed to any special offer;
2. I mean reboot, I know I do not have to reset.
Great tool anyway, I've been looking for it for ages!
Thanks

OK - I just wanted to be sure, the two words are very close.

The screensavers should maintain their settings, so something is wrong.

That information is stored on the visible USB storage area where you can check it.
Tell me anything else about what is happening and how you are using this, anything that might help.
I have not heard of the ss losing its settings with a reboot.

Hi knc1,
I updated the system to 5.6.1.1, re-installed the ScreenSavers Hack using MRPI.
I have been playing with the KUAL's screen saver configuration for a while.

Now everything seems normal, and ScreenSavers's settings do survive a reboot.

Thank you very much for your concerns, everything seems ok now.

The previous problem manifested itself by showing the default kindle random screens upon reboot.

Take care,

Michele
