Hey, I like this idea! Sometimes the Unlimited and Samples blend in.

I don't do Prime reading.

Hopefully the fix on bugs helps my new issue with no more auto-downloads. I'm not holding my breath though, think this is probably not a common problem.

It isn’t clear to me how you trigger the filter?

It worked for me right away, but I also already had the read/unread filter on my Oasis.

Kindle Unlimited shows at the top if applicable. (It lumped my Prime Reading book into the KU category.) Samples are mixed in with the different book types.

Jailbreak survives (hotfix, KUAL and packages to be reinstalled, as usual).

Thanks for showing me the display. I have nothing like that on my Paperwhite.

Scratch that. I just restarted my Kindle and the filter now shows.

Unfortunately it has not solved this problem for me, indeed the update has brought a new problem, with my device freezing or crashing when I turn on WiFi, and am having to restart it several times.

Uh oh! Hopefully that fixes itself soon, that problem sounds much more annoying.

It looks like my problem with the download fixed - just turned on the wi-fi to check for update and books started downloading with me having to do anything. Finally.

The firmware is nice - I like the option of finding my KU easily.

Did anybody get battery drain with this update? I charged my Kindle on Friday, it was on 60% of battery yesterday (just before I started to update) and today, in the morning, it was already on 18% percent.

I wonder if it's doing something to the db maybe, using extra battery?

Charge it and see if it does it again before being too concerned

That's not uncommon, yeah.

Plus, the update process *itself* is a battery drain, which is why it won't run at all if the battery is too low.
