Any chance for my PW2 5.8.11?

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 23:28:26 GMT

Dumb me, I was about to proceed with the whole thing, and then it updated to 5.8.11. As someone earlier mentioned, I find confusing information about if it is possible or not to downgrade or jailbreak it. Could someone that know more about this subject if this model with this version can be worked on?

KT2 Jailbreak on

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 23:02:30 GMT

---Quote--- There is a single, complex, special case for firmware version. If you get a Kindle with that firmware version, please just post in this thread before you do anything to it, your device **might** be one of the rare exceptions. ---End Quote--- 5_x_Jailbreak I understand this also applies to If so, what information is needed, and what are the steps? I only have access to the device a few days every few weeks, jailbreaking for someone else. Also, did I use the right prefix for a 2017 Kindle Touch?

Glo Non-corrupt epub ??

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 20:05:54 GMT

Hi to all, As I explained in another post, I converted a Pdf document into an Epub using Calibre and this created a "corrupt" file that apparently set up a boot loop on my Kobo, something like the Sickel issues of some years ago. I would welcome any pointers to help me "clean up" this epub file. I know nothing about this type of format so any help with using Calibre for this would be helpful. Thank you, Rojofo.

What's it like reading a book on an Onyx 13"?

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 19:46:51 GMT

Does the device feel too large, really, for book reading? I've always read e-books on small devices, because I am myopic and need to keep the device close to my eyes. But I've got a reMarkable that I am trying out, and it's surprisingly good to read on. Even though it's 10 inches. Even though it's close to my face. I assume it's easy on the eyes as there's no backlight. But does a 13" reader feel a bit large when laying down in the recliner to read and drink coffee?

Kindle paperwhite protection?

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 19:31:58 GMT

I have had a Paperwhite for about two years now. I started out using the Omoton case but took it off one night while reading and never put it back on. I like the feel much better without the case on it. I have been transporting it in a bubble mailing envelope but evidently that was not enough protection. About a week ago I noticed a tear or crack in the screen that casts an annoying shadow when reading at night. My wife knows me all too well so when she purchased the PW she also purchased the two year protection plan along with it. I have received the new reader and installed it back into the Omoton case. I was wondering what others are using for a case? The one I have keeps slipping when holding it with one hand, it is made out of a leather looking hard plastic.

Glo Boot loop on Kobo Glo Hd? Sickel ??

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 13:26:24 GMT

Hi to one and all! After recharging and restarting my Kobo Glo HD, it has gone into a kind of boot loop. It starts up and then freezes, then after a minute or so it starts up again and freezes. I have tried a soft reboot with a paper-clip in the little hole at the bottom but this simply sets off the loop again. I have managed to turn the Kobo off but the loop starts again as soon as I turn it on again. I can't see any way to stop this loop so I can intervene on the Kobo in the hope of repairing the problem. I cannot connect to my computer as the Kobo freezes before the connect command can be executed. I have searched this forum and the internet and I read that there was, a couple of years ago, an issue called "sickel" which seems to ressemble my problem, but I can't find a way of solving this. I am wondering if the source of this problem may not be an epub which I obtained by converting a Pdf document. My epub may be corrupt in some way. I would much appreciate any help, including pointers to solutions which have already been found but which I cannot trace on this forum. Thanks in advance, Rojofo.

Better cover for the Oasis 2

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 01:55:12 GMT

I bought a leather coverage by Amazon for my Oasis 2. I’ve had it a couple of weeks and now it’s all scuffed up.. soon it’s going to look awful. Can anyone recommend a case for it that will give me a flat back, be hard wearing and not be black?

Eink device for Safari books online (Safari Queue app)

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 00:57:21 GMT

Hello, I'm looking for an eink device on which I can use Safari Queue application. I'm already have 6 inch device (Kpw 3) and I'm happy with is as a "daily driver", so I'm looking for sth bigger. I think that 8 inches is a good compromise between size and portability. 300 dpi preferred. Safari queue app requires Android 4.1 and up. So far I've found Boyue Likebook (aka Icarus Illumina XL HD) and Tolino Epos which meet these criteria. But I've found info that Safari Queue didn't work on ICARUS Illumina E654BK (Boyue T63) which in theory also meets these criteria: Could any owner of these devices check if this app works correctly? They offer 10 day free trial, no credit card required: Do you know any other eink device (8 inches, 300dpi preferred) that supports Safari Queue app?

Turning off charging for long term USB power

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 00:21:01 GMT

I'm preparing to jb my KOA2 and began by looking over the mountable drive contents. I hadn't looked inside in a long time (Turns out I hadn't made the update preventor directory yet, so it's good I checked. Anyway, there turned out to be a file .fuse_hidden0000020c00000001 which I thought might have been put there by my laptop, but it has a 2017-10-13 time stamp, weeks before KOA2 release. Turns out it is a shell script. Code: --------- #!/bin/bash while true; do CAPACITY=$(cat /sys/class/power_supply/max77796-battery/capacity) if [ $CAPACITY -gt 70 ]; then echo 0 > /sys/class/power_supply/max77796-charger/charging elif [ $CAPACITY -lt 65 ]; then echo 1 > /sys/class/power_supply/max77796-charger/charging fi sleep 30 done --------- The Voyage doesn't have a /sys/class/power_supply/max77796-charger directory and on the Voyage /sys/class/power_supply/max77696-charger directory doesn't have a charging entry. Maybe I'm the only one that cares, but this looks like a good way to have a Kindle max out at 50% or so when on a charger long term.

emailing Kindle eBooks why?

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 21:25:14 GMT

What is the reason to email Kindle eBooks when most of the time you end up with Mobi format? Why not side load KF8 instead? Some of the new features in newer (PW2 on up) Kindles only work with KF8. Plus, you can hyphenate KF8 using the Hyphenate This! plugin. You cannot hyphenate Mobi.

Tablet Nook Samsung Galaxy Tab 7" and SD card...need info please!

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 18:36:42 GMT

Whoops, Nook Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 (the 7 is my husband's I think! Hello! I was wondering if it was possible to make books loaded on an SD card (sent to the card via Calibre e-book program) show up in the book library? At the moment, I had to go to my files, select the SD card, then select the Nook Folder I created there to put the books in, then select the subfolder "Books" in order to access them. I have like 119 gigs I would like to make use of, but, I can sometimes be lazy so I want to be able to access them as I would the books in the main memory. Can this be done? Thanks in Advance!

KT2 After jailbreak questions

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 14:07:01 GMT

My goal is to be able to sideload my book collection, which is in different formats, to my KT2 and be able to read them from it. I have been following though I think I messed up somewhere on step 9, as KUAL although displayed in My items, it would not open. I then tried installing MRPI and Koreader, but I think I have reversed all of this now. I have left my firmware version at 5.6.0 after jailbreaking, as I was unsure if there was any reason to not upgrade or not - please let me know if I should. The top level of Kindle storage is currently the following: Code: --------- drwxr-xr-x 11 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 17 13:33 . drwxr-xr-x 11 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 17 13:33 .. drwxr-xr-x 3 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 16 23:32 .active-content-data drwxr-xr-x 4 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 16 23:27 .active_content_sandbox -rw-r--r-- 1 firstname firstname 41565 Nov 27 18:39 ChangeLog.txt drwxr-xr-x 2 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 16 22:27 .demo drwxr-xr-x 2 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 16 23:32 developer drwxr-xr-x 6 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 17 13:14 documents drwxr-xr-x 2 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 16 23:18 mkk drwxr-xr-x 2 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 16 23:18 rp drwxr-xr-x 13 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 17 13:28 system drwxr-xr-x 2 firstname firstname 8192 Feb 16 19:18 update.bin.tmp.partial -rw-r--r-- 1 firstname firstname 38 Nov 27 18:39 VERSION --------- Starting step 9 over from now, I have unzipped kual-mrinstaller-1.6.N-r14394.tar.xz to the top level of my Kindle, and even though the MobileRead Package Installer ( thread does not mention inputting ;log mrpi to the search bar, as the Wiki page does input it but receive the error no MR packages found. I am guessing this is instruction on how to use it, when necessary. In the next part of step 9, I go to KUAL: Kindle Unified Application Launcher (v2.7) (, and if I understand correctly learn I need to first install Mobileread Kindlet Kit ( before KUAL. Looking through the files in, I do not seem any that indicate they are for KT2 or BASIC, so I am going to stop here, and ask which file should I use please? When I tried this before I used K5, and then then uninstall bin earlier today.
