PW Auto page-turn or slide show function

Hi mobileread forum, I'm brand new here so pardon in advance if this is the wrong place to ask! I just managed to JB my old PW1 with much joy and enthusiasm (my first jailbroken device to date :p) My reason for delving into this was the need for an auto page-turn, or slide show function on my kindle since I want to use it as a wall display for showing texts and/or images. So far I havent been able to find something on the forums, except for the online screensaver extension that might work as sli...

Fullscreen website

Hey all, I'm trying to build a dashboard that just displays a website, ideally hard refreshing the display every few minutes. I initially looked at WebLaunch but it seems that package is no longer working or maintained. Are there any other options for me to get a web page showing fullscreen? It looks like 'WAF' (web apps?) were a thing but not sure if they're working anymore either? I'm not worried about interactivity, I just want to show the website. If it's easier I could have the web fi...

PW4 Need help with python

I suspect my kindle pw4 did not successfully install python (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=195474) or at the very least don't know how to access it via making new KUAL extensions or kterm. Do you guys know how to confirm that it's installed properly or how to access it via command. My device has been jailbroken and updated to the latest fw (5.13.6) before downgrading it back to factory (5.10.3) jailbreaking then updating to (5.13.3). I was expecting to find a python folder, som...

Editing Hosts File to block telemetry

I am planning to either SSH into my kindle or use a terminal emulator to edit the hosts files of my kindle paperwhite in order to block telemetry from amazon. My question is, is this a bad idea? I would think that this would be the best way of stopping telemetry from my kindle device

How to prevent Kindle from downloading word wise and x-ray files?

The word wise file created by WordDumb plugin works well until Wi-Fi turned on and Kindle downloads the Kindle Store's file. I have read several hours of nonsense Java variables but still can't find the relevant code, I guess it should be somewhere inside /opt/amazon/ebook/lib/LanguageLayer.jar. Does anyone know how to tell Kindle to stop downloading these files without using an invalid ASIN?

Native How do I restart (GUI?) framework?

I need to apply changes to FONT_RAMP without rebooting on a PW3 running 5.9.6.1. https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...93&postcount=3 says a framework restart will do it. It looks like amazon switched from init to upstart somewhere along the way. I've looked at some upstart tutorials and remain confused. They imply something like Code: service restart framework would do the trick, but there is no service command. I'm stuck. Please help.

KT stuck on diagnostic mode boot after Kubrick

Hello, I just tried to debrick my KT, was using Kubrick and everything is fine till KT has to boot into diagnostic mode. Then, KT does not boot. Then, finally after one/two days a diagnostic menu appears but does not include enable SSH (Z) option. It is supposed that Kubrick installed ssh+diag image, is there anybody which understands what is happening here. Why is finally booting with this (seems to be) default diags image? Thanx in advance

Change Home screen seeting without registering possible?

Hi, I don't what to register my kindle just to turn off the home screen. As reported the change would stay even after de registering the Kindle again. With this info it should be possible to set that flag if the kindle is jailbroken even without ever registering the Kindle. The question is do we know where this settings is stored? If yes we could create a Kual extension to change it. Any idea about the settings file? Regards Hanspete

PW Fastboot needed...

Hello. I'm repairing my pw1 that had an emmc failure. I've already replaced the memory but unfortunately I'm stuck on uploading the kernel. I set the serial numbers with mfgtools and fastboot for K5 found in this forum. While it went smoothly, it looks like the K5 version of fastboot can't properly write the kernel or the diags partition. When I try to save I get an: ERROR error: [fsl_arc_udc.c] udc_irq: 1127: Packet sys err I conclude that this fatboot doesn't quite match PW1. Do any of you ha...

Problem with starting KUAL and Vlasovsoft

Hello everybody :-) I've jailbroken my 2 devices Kindle PW3 (factory jailbreak on one device and Kindlebreak on the 2nd). Jailbreak worked, then I installed Hotfix, but I cannot run KUAL nor the Vlasovsoft package. In both Kual and VS starting element is the .azw2 file in documents folder which is not visible in the reader menu. Does anyone know how to solve this problem and run KUAL and VS on these devices? When I use it on PW2 with 5.8.7.01 it works perfectly. I suppose that the newer firmwa...

Restore kindles into no-ads mode, whispertouch and screensaver work with koreader

(Not sure why this thread disappeared during yesterday. If it broke the forum guideline, please kindly let me know. Thank you) I am still evaluating whether this solution can permanently restore the devices into no-ads mode. But it works for now. I always would like to use whispertouch in koreader, but there are always some tech restrictions if the device is ad-supported ($20 cheaper). Recently I got a new kindle basic 10th and since I do not purchase ebooks from amazon, I did not see a point of...

Anyone has experience using KOReader on jailbroken kindle? How was it compare to like converted it to mobi and optimize the...

Error when trying to start Kual

When trying to start Kual, I get this error message: "The title failed to close properly" (see screenshot). Kual used to work fine until I had a problem with my USB connection which also for some reason reset my system clock to 1 Jan 1970 0:00 (I managed to set that back to the current time and date using the shell commands date and hwclock -w). I removed and reinstalled Kual but to no avail. Any suggestions? Attached Images screenshot.bm...

Screen Sharing between Kindle Dx and Mac?

I found instructions here: https://tinyapps.org/docs/e-ink-monitor.html But I can't get it to work. I'm not quite sure why. When I type up the commands and connect the Kindle to my computer, there's nothing on either side to show an option for screen sharing. If it depends on shift-VU at some point, I don't know where, and I don't have the coordination for that command. I was trying to MacOS's built-in screen sharing options instead of installing additional screen sharing software for it.

Is it possible to limit battery charge to say 80%?

In my rooted Android devices I have faithfully adhered to limiting charge between 30-80%. Probably that's why even after 4+ years in 2 of my oldest devices (2 & 3 years of intensive usage) battery health is still in the 85-90% range and they still deliver 8-10 hour SoT. Considering the difficulty in obtaining a replacement battery for Kindles in my country I would like to prolong the battery life as far as possible. After jailbreak I have no desire to get an Android based one. Is this possible? ...

Does using wifi in KOReader put me at risk of OTA updates ?

Hi ! I have a newly jailbroken PW2 and am enjoying KOReader a lot ! I was wondering whether the Wi-Fi functions of KOReader were independent from the main OS ones and, explicitly, whether enabling these Wi-Fi functionalities was completly uncorrelated to disabling the airplane mode in the Kindle interface - which would mean that I don't risk any OTA update bricking my sweet paperwhity friend. I'd love syncing with calibre without them nasty cables ! Thanks a lot, sorry for creating a whole thre...
