Same experience with my PW3s and PW4s. Special Offers status was only set after registration with Amazon.

I think for the PW2, though, it may have been preset on the device.

for these two readsons alone I think it'd be worth it. would love to play chess anywhere I find my kindle (and enjoy its long battery life).

how come I didn't see these apps pagethis page?

Is there an index/list of apps that can run on the paperwhite 4 somewhere?

No, too soon.
But ...
ANY touch screen add-in should work, with a few exceptions due to changes in the file system implementation (PW4 and KOA2 are changed).

For instantace, "Rescue Pack" and "Cowards Rescue Pack" will not work (they depend on the Kindle being dual-boot and the PW4/KOA2 are not dual-boot - those are what I (and others) call the "Androidized" Kindle models).

Check out the built-in Wallabag plugin in KOReader. I believe Wallabag allows importing from both Pocket and Instapaper.

Congrats!

1) Yes. Just to play safe, do not update until you see news on that firmware somewhere here.
2) Most probably it is safe to move to 5.10.2 as long as you don't screw too many things up on your current Kindle before update. Do backup anyway.
3).
So when it comes to doing a software update would I just download the version from Amazon's site ? It seems like you want to avoid OTA updates.

Has anyone who's jailbroken successfully updated to 5.10.2?

They are the identical update files.
What is being avoided is the surprise element to OTA updates, not the update itself.
Each user might have their own, very good, reason(s) for wanting to know exactly when an update will be done (as in, when someone else has tested its functional changes).

everything worked great!

this KUAL and MRPI is great!

questions:
1) anyway to get KUAL to show up without me searching for it? i.e. showing in the recent directory?
2) is KOReader a different extension / install process than MRPI packages? thanks!

1) Add it to a collection named _Apps or something so it shows on first page
2) It's a KUAL add-on so install for KOReader is just the same as how you installed MRPI itself (basically just unzip to Kindle root)

what's weird is i can find it. but i can't seem to add it to a collection, probably because i already have 1200 items. if i find it in the search results, i can't seem to hold it down and select 'add to collections'

and if i try to sort by recent it doesn't seem to appear as a recent document. not sure how you're saying to do that.

*edit* i think i found it and added it to a collection manually.

This morning, the Bump KUAL extension was released.
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=314700

It bumps KUAL to the top of the recent view.

It requires that python be installed

Just for completeness - in one spot - would you repeat the device and firmware version on which you are finding this problem. Also mention if the firmware version is a customer use build or the factory use build please.
A link to the copy of "eboard chess" you are testing will also help others reproduce your problem (a first step in getting it fixed).

And if it is an "active document" you are probably S.O.L.
