You are attempting to use the procedure of installing Amazon update packages.

Also re-install any other add-in that that seems to be broke (it probably is).

Once you have done all of that -
Then read the "Troubleshooting" section of the first post, tell us each of those things you have done and the result of each.
I follow the Mobileread instructions using MRPI to Install the .bin files. I reinstall the Phython but I had to put it into the mrpackages and then use MRPI on Kual Launcher. It's working now, even tough sometimes it shows the wrong book cover.

Great.

Now open, read, and follow the troubleshooting directions.
Tell us which of those you do and the result of each.

That is the same as writing,
quote:
"I had to put it into the /mrpackages"
because that is the directions for re-installing.

All the *.bin packages of OURS has to be put into the /mrpackages directory and use MrPI.
Only Amazon packages use UYK.

You could also use the menu bar command, it does the same thing, runs MrPI.

mrpi destroys packages

First of all new to jailbreak. Glad to see thread still active.

Jailbreaked. Added python next. Tried linkss and no. Got KUAL with extensions and MRinstaller by following the thread. Got KOReader next by putting KOReader folder and .bin in mrpackages. Or folder was in root... Tried linkss and LibrarianSync, neither worked. ran unistall.bin for both and tried again. It says destroying packages before reboot. Obviously, I'm missing something

Read the readme file on linkss. There's alot of requirements more than just putting the .bin and running KUAL. Do I need start considering running KindleTool? Or did I cause a glitch somewhere along the line? This is my 2nd jailbreak attempt on it.

the only thing you are missing is to get your add-in packages from NiLuJe's snapshot thread and to follow directions exactly and completely.
If you can't do that, you should not be modifying your Kindle, following directions is the bare minimum skill required.

^knc1, thanks so much for sticking around in this thread and helping those of us who are not very acquainted with this.

So there was a kindle update today that just made the screensavers hack not work. >_< What is the procedure to try to get it back up again when the kindle gets an update? Do you recommend turning kindle auto-updates off?

Luckily once jailbroken it's easy to get things going again after an update. Just reinstall the hacks. The Jailbreak survives, at least it has for some time.

Just drop all the hacks into MRR and bam, you're back up and running.

All that with the caveat that the jailbreak has so far survived, but KNC1 and NiLuje would better answer that part if things change

Well the launcher app is gone. So it looks like I will have to try to fix it while it's connected to the computer... I'm sorry, MRR? Is there any link with a guide on what to do after an update? Apologies guys/gals, I'm so new to this stuff.

Launcher app? KUAL? that shouldn't disappear, it never has for me.

Have you installed this (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=251143) Sorry I picked up MRR, not sure where. LOL.

Are you using the 'document' or the 'booklet' version of KUAL?
If using the 'document' version, it should be in /documents (which you do not show).

If that has disappeared from /documents during an update -
If you live in the USA -
Then you have caught Amazon committing a felony - notify Home Land Security and report their messing with your personal information and documents on your Kindle computer.

Looks like it was booklet:

So what should I do? Just delete everything and start from scratch?

No.

That looks like a view of the files on your PC, not on the Kindle.

Put:
KUAL-KDK-2.0.azw2 in the /documents directory of the Kindle.
That would be found at the topmost visible level of USB storage.

NOT in a /documents directory on the PC - (yes, some people have tried that )

I was just showing that it was indeed booklet is all. And that's pretty funny. If I was that bad then everyone offering advice would need to be paid an hourly rate.

Well anyway, I already had that file in /documents on my kindle but I moved it in there again and replaced it. No discernible difference. Just let me know at any point if I should google a guide and start over, but it sure would be nice to revive the working launcher and all without going back to square one.

In that case, you are using the "Document" version of KUAL, not the "Booklet" version.

Change the display filter to include all active documents.

Terms depend on firmware version, but most recently in the upper left of the home screen. What is the firmware version?

Do not start over, you can only make things worse.
Keep your finger away from the "Reset" button!
