Sorry but I do not see a solution, I see that there is a challenge.
I didn't do any changes to my DXG for a while so I'm all little bit rusty.

We can only provide you with the same (non-) solution as the most recent person to ask the question before you.

If you find a solution, please post it.

@blaser: Check the FAQ for real, maybe, since you actually have a DXg, and not a DX like the previous poster?

I understand that azw2 is active content, but what makes the old kindle read and understand this content?

Because it had something which in the process of installing a firmware v3.x was lost.


Go to first post of this thread.
Read down to red section header "FAQs and Known Issues".
Open spoiler.
Go to 7th. bullet point; read it; follow link.
Read and follow directions @ target of the link.

Tried that, no luck.
added the file KindleDeviceServicesTN-1.0.jar and ran the patch.

The reliance on original *matching* 2.5.8 files is essential to the patching process, AFAIU.

So I'd double-check the version you were supplying, whether it was put in the right place, and how that affected the syslog output before/after the patching process.

And keep in mind, Java will cache jar contents, so you should do a full (cold) restart after changing one of them.

Huh?

Last I checked, amazon didn't ship full updates for legacy devices, only binary deltas, which definitely *won't* do the job here...

You'll need your own original full 2.5.8 backup image.

yes, I do but the jar file I used is the same from the original backup and download from Amazon, right?

something is missing in the package to allow kindle to read azw2 files, it doesn't recognize them as kindle files at all.
Can I try running it manually using usbnet?

Anything you download from Amazon prior to (about) 5.2 ARE NOT complete images.
They are only incomplete, difference, files.
Amazon only provides incremental change files prior to (about) 5.2.x

You really, really, need to read and follow our directions for de-bricking that device.
Our directions will include links to the recovery image files we built for recovering the older devices.
