@julioemanoeld,
I don't know whether there is a direct way to manage Kindle collections from Calibre on PC.
However, have a look at Librarian Sync. One of the options is to generate a json file with collections via the Calibre Plugin and then feed it in to Librarian Sync on Kindle.

Ever since Amazon switched to Cloud Collections, jailbreak has been required to be able to organize Kindle collections with Calibre.

As @mergen3107 mentioned, you need the Kindle Collections plugin to generate LibrarianSync-compatible JSON file/list in Calibre. You then run LibrarianSync on the PW4 to convert the JSON list into actual collections on the Kindle.

Thanks NiLuJe!

Just wanted to drop a thank you for updating the packages. I was able to fix my PW2 jailbreak after updating to latest FW.

Why don't you provide one for everyone?
All you need is a bunch of server time and a bit of maintenance every week.

Okay! Here comes some news on the Python front. As some of you may be aware, Python 2 is scheduled to go supernova on the first of January 2020. Which means I ought to offer a Python 3 package before that EoL deadline...
Well, that's today. Because I'm extremely lazy, the Python packages will now intall *both* Python 2.7 & Python 3.7. Which means they're twice as large, and take twice as long to install. Eh.

Until the EoL, the python symlink still points to python2.7. I urge you to update your shebang if you have some code that's not Py3k-ready that's currently using a generic "python" shebang.
FWIW, *all* of the various Kindle bits I ship that need Python depend on Python 2. Thankfully, they were always using an explicit python2 shebang, so, nothing will horribly break at random one day .

As far as 3rd-party modules go, when some/all of them start dropping Python 2 support, I'll simply freeze the Python 2 build to the latest supported version.

I've also updated the example code in FBInk's python bindings to behave properly on both Python versions.

On a slightly related note, because I had to vent my rage at Python's buildsystem somewhere, I worked on FBGrab: it's now much faster (some of that is actually achieved by making it go faster, and some of it by convincing libpng & zlib not to spend so much time on filtering & compression). (The standalone builds were also updated).

Anyway, obligatory finish-line shot:

On a PW2:
Code:
Python 3.7.3 (default, Jul 10 2019, 09:11:48) 
[GCC 7.4.1 20181213] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import platform
>>> platform.uname()
uname_result(system='Linux', node='kindle', release='3.0.35-lab126', version='#2 PREEMPT Tue Jul 24 06:43:56 PDT 2018', machine='armv7l', processor='')
>>>
Or, hell, even on a K2i:
Code:
Python 3.7.3 (default, Jul 11 2019, 05:54:06) 
[GCC 7.4.1 20181213] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import platform
>>> platform.uname()
uname_result(system='Linux', node='kindle', release='2.6.22.19-lab126', version='#3 PREEMPT Thu Jan 13 18:13:20 PST 2011', machine='armv6l', processor='')
>>>
PSA: This *requires* a recent MRPI version, so, do make sure you've successfully updated MRPI to the latest version *first*!

Install it via ;log mrpi (put the .bin file on mrpackages folder). Works for me on KT4 with firmware 5.12.1.

Thanks, I'm aware of mrpi.
The hotfix is intended to be installed via UYK.

@hius07: I wouldn't mind a look at system logs, too (right after a failure).

And I'd be curious to see if your update.bin.tmp.partial folder didn't get squished, too...

EDIT: And it probably breaks the SKIP_UPDATE_CHECK thingy, too.

Thank you, the failure report is from a user at our forum at 4pda.ru.
I've sent him all the questions and waiting for response.

I just updated the Python on my KOA2 and it got stuck on the Done. Restarting UI screen. I hard pressed power and it rebooted and recovered fine.

But after checking my Python install is still from March of 2019. I will retry on more time.
