Thanks a ton it worked fine for me! I used the ss hack to replace those creeps with randomized Kirby powers images.

I'm not a nub to hacking things, but i like instructions to be clear as possible so we dont have to ask dumb questions when trying a new hack. I re-write most readme files for clearness before i forget what i did. A couple things to add that could clear up questions i had but eventually figured out.

"Copy the appropriate jailbreak bin file to the root of your Kindle." -please add "The root is the folder with system in it." then they wont have to wait to see if the update thing is greyed out they will know they already have it right.

"Place your 600x800 (824x1200 if you have a DX) image files (png or jpeg) into the "linkss/screensavers" folder." - i thought ONLY 600 by 800 would work but i have tried all sorts of weird sizes smaller both grey and color and they worked fine. can it shrink larger images too? If so then just say that 600x800 is best or something so we dont go working hard to get perfect 600x800 images or greyscaling them beforehand.

"Anytime you want to change your screen saver images just drop a blank "reboot" file in the "linkss" folder (or in the "linkfonts" folder if you also have the Fonts Hack installed) after you've made your changes and you'll be good to go." - OR just reboot it. easy.

They seem pretty straight forward to me... but if not your post will probably be sufficiently informative to anyone who finds it unclear.
