I have run into one issue, though.... I use a passcode to lock my Kindle. If the Kindle falls asleep or I close the cover while the extension is activated, I can not type in my password to unlock the device. Because it is not unlocked, the page turn buttons do not work, so I can't deactivate the extension.

The only workaround I've found is to restart the device using the power button, which in turn disables the extension completely requiring opening KUAL to reenable it. Is there a more elegant solution?
fixed. See new attachment. Let me know if you run into any more problems

Try it, post back your results.
Remember, on the Oasis you must use the booklet version of KUAL.

This extension works well on kindle oasis 1st gen!

However, there are 2 issues.
1. KOA can swap the prev/back buttons. This extension will change the default button settings.
2. This extension seems lock KOA's auto screen rotation.

This extension seems not to work on a KOA2 5.9.0.6 the screens remains touch sensitive.

However it does lock auto screen rotation and it swaps and locks the prev/back buttons to reverse setting as long as its running, when stopped the buttons revert to previous setting

Install the current firmware version for the KOA2 -
It has touchscreen disable built into it.
