KPV Booklet not working with PW3?

I've been searching for other reports, but can't find any.

I am on a PW3 with 5.8.10 and KOReader and KUAL work as expected which is great.

I would really like to be able to use collections and launch KOReader from the home screen however and thus, if I understand correctly, I need KPV Booklet.

With the KPV Booklet .bin from github, I have installed and uninstalled and reinstalled several times without success. When I use the MRPI Helper, it shows 'hush little baby' and the kindle restart, but I cannot see epubs etc. which I assume is how I will know that it is working...

Is there something that I am missing and doing wrong?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

What is the content of the MrPI log file?
Is this a package with the filename format of update_*.bin?
Did you re-package it for your device model?
What was the two commands you used when you re-packaged it?

[2017-10-15 @ 00:12:31 +0800] :: [MRPI r13359] - Beginning the processing of package 'update_kpvbooklet_0.6.5_install.bin' (kpvbooklet 0.6.5 I) . . .

Package 'update_kpvbooklet_0.6.5_install.bin' (kpvbooklet 0.6.5 I) is not targeting your device [0LK vs. 11 0F 10 24 1B 1C 1D 1F 20 D4 5A D5 D6 D7 D8 F2 17 60 62 5F 61 C6 DD 13 54 53 2A 0G1 0G7 0G6 0G2 0G5 0G4 0KB 0KC 0GC 0GD 0GU 0K9 0KA], skipping . . .
so my device is not on the supported list. but it might still work?

I obviously have not tried to repackage it. can you point me in the direction of any resources to get me started with that?

Go to the post where you downloaded coplate's build of the KPVbooklet (the one you linked to).
Open the spoiler in the text. (spoilers are where we hide the technical details)
Use those commands, substituting the name of the package you are re-packaging.
Also note that the example shows he is using a Windows build of KindleTool.

You may or may not have to wait for coplate to return next week.
I do not know if those options in the commands require the build of KindleTool that only he has.
The Linux and Mac versions of KindleTool work the same as shown for windows (other than the different characters used in path names).
But try it with the KindleTool build in NiLuJe's snapshots thread first.
