Hacks CVE-2020-15999 => Kindle jailbreak now possible

Hey folks, there's a heap overflow in the freetype font rendering library, which (I'm virtually certain) the Kindle is using for user-provided fonts as well as for PDF rendering. Here's the CVE: https://www.cybersecurity-help.cz/vdb/SB2020102038 Most reports are calling this a "Google Chrome" weakness because that's where it was exploited first, but the vulnerability is actually in Freetype, which Google bundles with Chrome. So anything using Freetype two weeks ago is vulnerable. I'm more of ...

Tips and tricks for Calibre

I think it would be useful to have a "tips and tricks for Calibre " folder in the stickies. I also think that ONLy tricks and tips should be permitted in it and perhaps an index of the items. One of the problems I have with the other "tips and tricks: forums is that specific tips are buried in discussion about a tip which obscures the actual tip. I would suggest an ordinary thread be started for each tip and after any discussion is ended the mods be asked to move the finalised tip to the s...

Mounting a Trijicon RMR on a GLOCK 19 Slide from Brownells U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I pitched the idea of building up a G19 from parts to my AmmoLand editors and they dug it.  I worked with Brownells to grab a shortlist of goods that the average person could assemble with a high degree of success.  Included in that configuration was an RMR and accompanying slide.  My problem?  While I have milled and mounted tremendous numbers of red dots onto pistols in my custom shop, I haven’t been in the ...

Upgrading Kobo OS, what impact does it have on KOReader?

I installed KOReader w/ the simple installer that installs KOReader and launcher all at once, and haven't used the built-in reader since. I see that there's a new Kobo OS update, which I probably don't care about, but it might update itself soon, so before that happens I thought that I should check to see if there's anything that I need to do to ensure that I don't lose my reading statistics, progress, etc. I assume that these are stored in the normal user-space that isn't overwritten by the...

Graphics from go on the kobo?

Hi, I'd like to write an application (a browser for the gemini protocol) for the kobo in go, but the only way I have found to draw to the screen from a go program is through fbink (which is great but a little limited for what I'd like). Is there some other way to draw to the screen/get touchscreen events from a go program? Thanks!

Better contrast on GloHD screen compared to Libra H20?

Last week I 'upgraded' my GloHD to a LibraH20. I'm happy with the big screen, buttons, and Overdrive support. However, the contrast on my Libra's screen is not nearly as good as on the GloHD. On the GloHD, I read most of the time without the frontlight on at all (I find this more comfortable), but on the Libra, I find I have to use the frontlight almost all the time, unless I'm reading outdoors. Are others experiencing this difference too? I'm guessing this is because of the Libra's capacitive...

fix current date on kindle dx? stuck in 1970, KUAL won't open

When I do ;debugOn and ;dm I get a title which refers to "all logs as of tue mar 03 1970". This is a problem I have faced before. When I try to open KUAL it says "The permissions to open the requested title have an invalid date. Please contact customer service." Any ideas on how to re-set the date to something reasonable so that KUAL will open? Can I re-write KUAL somehow to have a rather OLD date? Maybe adjust mkk to be an older date? Thanks :)
