Don't understand your problem...

Just connect your Kindle via USB, go to the /documents folder and remove the KUAL*.azw2 file. BINGO! :-D

PW3-5.9.2:
Removing the file is easy.
Making the thumbnail go away, not so easy.
It will require a small script to do some database file clean-up.

cd /var/local
sqlite3 cc.db 'update entries set p_isvisibleinhome=0 where p_location="/mnt/us/documents/KUAL-KDK-2.0.azw2"'

That only hides it (controls its visibility).
The thumbnail needs to be removed from one of the databases.

The person who PM'd me the information did not bother to name **which** database the thumbnail is in.

So someone will have to take the time to find out and provide a "runme" script for the purpose, or wait for me to get finished with the "hotfix" repair.

That would remove it from the cloud collection (cc.db) database.
But the thumbnail itself is stored somewhere, it would also have to be removed.

Previously to 5.9.2, the system took the thumbnail from either the book or the book's metadata directory.
But there is no 'left over' metadata directory for the KUAL document (the entry you do see is for the booklet):
Code:
[root@kindle documents]# ls -l
-rwxrwxrwx    1 root     root             0 Oct  1  2016 KUAL.kual
-rwxrwxrwx    1 root     root        468580 Oct  1  2016 Kindle_Users_Guide.azw3
drwxrwxrwx   13 root     root          8192 Oct  1  2016 dictionaries
See? No *.azw3, no metadata directory.
But the document thumbnail is still being shown on my screen.
I.E: It must be stored in one of the /var/local databases.

In fact, there isn't any metadata directory for the "Kindle User's Guide", which IS still on the system.

5.9.2 :: document/book metadata: moved from a directory into a database.
And the 'left over' image on the screen does not respond to a long tap to delete.

Funky.
They completely removed support for active documents - including any way to delete them.
Go, go, Lab126, too much:

I still have SDR directories on my Oasis 2 5.9.2.

Also covers were never stored there. PDOC ones are read from ebook file itself, rest is in system\thumbnails.

Even for AZW2/AZW3 & KF8 books?

To sum it up: FW 5.9.2 seems to be a real big setback!
- active documents support finally gone
- MrPI doesn't work any longer
... what the hell?!

So here's my question (especially on behalf of my friend, who, in contrast to myself, is using his Kindle online): Is the OTA blocker directory trick still reliable to stay on (jailbroken) 5.8.11, even with WLAN on? (The latter version is IMHO definitely the best firmware for everyday's use...)

Left over from previous fw version?
Are the contents of the resepective *.sdr dirs still updated when reading the corresponding books? Otherwise they're just garbage...

No idea why your directory is empty. All my covers are there.
