Interesting. The PW2 runs the same software as the Voyage & Oasis - 5.7.4

That should be KB2, not KT2. The Kindle Basic with touch replaced the Kindle basic without touch. SO calling it KT2 is incorrect. KB2 is correct given the model it replaced.

As you do not own a Kindle nor do you participate in the Kindle Developers Corner, you are not permitted to command us how to refer to our devices.

Buzz off.

Way too lazy to compare kernel configs, but I'm guessing the PW2 kernel is missing some key stuff compared to the PW3, which might explain the lack of functionality on a PW2...

A quick dmesg check on the two devices might be a good start, though, if you have shell access to your device.

(The rest of the FW itself *tends* (a notable exception being graphic assets tailored to the target screen resolution, for instance) to mostly be identical between devices on the same build, most of the device-specific stuff lies in the kernel).

I did try plugging in an OTG cable and a USB device with a power indicator LED to see what would happen. The Kindle did not power the bus. (I also verified this with a USB breakout box and a voltmeter.) The hardware and/or software of the PW2 is not operating in USB host mode.

Amazon has 12 models in their Kindle lineup. This is how I name them:

* K1 -- K2 -- KDX -- K3/KK -- K4/K4S -- K5/K4B -- PW1 -- PW2 -- PW3 -- K7 -- KV -- KO

My K7 is officially named - Kindle. Definitely not confusing

So, more to it than just the software... thanks.

Yup, the voice installer is flagged for the PW2/KV/KT2/PW3. It's basically only missing the Oasis (in which case, KindleTool is your friend, either to get at the files, or to repack it for the Oasis).

(It does a platform check only, so it matches all Wario devices. Since the Oasis is based on a newer platform, Duet, and this specific variant of the package format doesn't support flagging multiple platforms, not flagging the Oasis is currently a technical limitation of the particular variant of the package format they decided to use).

But as was mentioned, it's nothing but a voice folder dropped in the USB root, so you really, really don't need the two layers of indirection that update package introduces to do that, but, hey .
Interesting...didn't Nate say that it *did* work on the Oasis? Or is that something different that works on the Oasis?

I guess there are going to be three different monikers for the Kindle since we cannot agree what to call it.

I think he manually dropped the voice folder in place, rather than using this install tool. The install tool is what doesn't recognize the Oasis.

Nate said VoiceView worked on the Oasis but on the Voyage, the voices had to be copied over or installed.
