Troubleshooting Kindle PW1 Bricked, screen works fine, no touch

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 09:28:02 GMT

I jailbroke my Kindle Paperwhite (5th gen) a few weeks ago, it worked just fine. Two weeks ago, my kindle's touch just froze while reading, then I just left it and the touch came back in the morning, the second time this happened, I kept it like that for a few days, then attached the power cable and restarted it, the touch came back, now this is the third time, what should I do? The screen works fine, and I was able to recover the documents folder, then I did a manual factory reset. Still doesn't work. :help::(

Aura Edition 2 SD Card Glued In?

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 07:23:33 GMT

Hello everyone. I'm looking for someone who has opened their Aura Edition 2. I just popped the back off of mine and it looks like the micro SD card is glued in the socket. I tried to gently pry it out with a fingernail but it doesn't come out easily. Has anyone been able to take theirs out? I didn't want to try to force it if it isn't removable. Thanks!

Aura My Kobo Aura One screen is broken

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 03:56:41 GMT

I purchased my Kobo Aura One a few months ago from eBay (product page ( One morning I bring it with me to work as usual and when I take it out of my back pack, the screen seems to be broken. Here is how it looks ( Image: I never drop it and always keep it in my backpack when I travel and on my bed when I'm at home. So I have no idea what possibly happened. Is there any way to get this fixed? I'm living in Singapore. I really love this device but buying a new one would be a too expensive option :(

Troubleshooting How to fix Kindle Paperwhite Error code 0

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 01:27:47 GMT

Two days ago, my kindle suddenly froze and displayed the "Your Kindle Needs Repair" message. I've searched online for solutions and came across this But the problem is, kindle only displays for a fraction of a second (basically non existent) on my computer, but it does show up as Amazon Kindle under 'Devices and Printers' in control panel. However, I can's open the files in it. I contacted Amazon Support, but they simply said there's nothing they could do bout it, and advised me to get a new one.... Anyone with a fix, either to get kindle to display properly, or alternative methods I can try to fix this issue? Thanks for reading and I hope to find a solution.

Fire 7 and SD card

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 23:51:16 GMT

I have a Fire 7 tablet, which I use with an SD card. Every so often, the tablet tells me that the SD card has been removed--it hasn't--and I have to either restart the tablet or remove and reinsert the card. Then the tablet recognizes the card and everything goes along fine until the next time. Has anyone else had this issue? Is it perhaps an indication of the tablet beginning to fail?

Troubleshooting Send to Kindle vs KF8

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 23:05:00 GMT

Hello I have an issue with sending my hybrid mobi files created in Calibre via Send to Kindle. In theory my PW3 supposed to download file from the cloud with kf8 formatting. Instead I have azw file with old formatting and some weird line breaks. Everything is fine when I open it on Calibre or send via cable in mobi or azw3 format. Any ideas?

Tools Kindle backup

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 22:08:54 GMT

For touch screen Kindles, create a complete system's backup. This does not include the USB storage area, which the user can backup over the USB cable to their PC. Install: Un-archive the attached compressed archive to the top level of visible USB storage. Be sure your archive handling tool is set to re-create the directory structure. There will be two directories (folders) added to the top of visible USB storage; 'unjail' and 'esys'. The 'unjail' directory will contain the script. The 'esys' directory (tree) will contain three of the GNU CoreUtils applications required. 'unjail' because this script is part of the new serial jail breaking procedure. 'esys' because that is our long established ARMel add-in tree. No KUAL button (yet). The script has to be run from the command line for this version. The progress report given when run from the command line: Code: --------- [root@kindle root]# /mnt/us/unjail/ Copying partitioned area prefix. 33554432 bytes (32.0MB) copied, 2.660143 seconds, 12.0MB/s Copying diag kernel block. 4194304 bytes (4.0MB) copied, 0.245116 seconds, 16.3MB/s Copying main kernel block. 4194304 bytes (4.0MB) copied, 0.358442 seconds, 11.2MB/s Extracting diagnostic uImage. 2634796 bytes (2.5MB) copied, 0.203523 seconds, 12.3MB/s Image Name: Linux-3.0.35-lab126 Created: Tue Mar 22 02:16:36 2016 Image Type: ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed) Data Size: 2634732 Bytes = 2572.98 kB = 2.51 MB Load Address: 80008000 Entry Point: 80008000 Extracting main uImage. 2912428 bytes (2.8MB) copied, 0.175353 seconds, 15.8MB/s Image Name: Linux-3.0.35-lab126 Created: Mon Jan 16 12:39:07 2017 Image Type: ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed) Data Size: 2912364 Bytes = 2844.11 kB = 2.78 MB Load Address: 80008000 Entry Point: 80008000 Copying main partition(2min). 471859200 bytes (450.0MB) copied, 122.171962 seconds, 3.7MB/s Copying diag partition. 67108864 bytes (64.0MB) copied, 18.563725 seconds, 3.4MB/s Copying local partition. 67108864 bytes (64.0MB) copied, 15.966005 seconds, 4.0MB/s Copying boot0 partition. 2097152 bytes (2.0MB) copied, 3.684208 seconds, 555.9KB/s Copying boot1 partition. 2097152 bytes (2.0MB) copied, 0.430499 seconds, 4.6MB/s --------- That script will create a directory (folder) in the top level of USB storage 'backups'.

Native sc: A Kindle Spreadsheet!

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 18:01:48 GMT

*Name:* sc - spreadsheet calculator. Another vintage(2002) linux command line application from the debian jessie armel repository...KUAL-ified for the Kindles! *Version:* 7.16-4 *Authors:* James Gosling, Mark Weiser, Martin Schulze and others. *From the README:* "This is a much modified version of the public domain spread sheet sc, originally by James Gosling, and posted a number of years ago by Mark Weiser as vc." *Kindle background:* There used to be a paid active content spreadsheet application on the Amazon website. Some attempt was made by twobob to port gnumeric to the kindles. See threads: and It actually seems to have run on twobob's kindles.. but he couldn't make a public release. The application here is not a graphic one like gnumeric, but is quite usable and has a lot of features. *Needs:* Jailbroken Kindle, KUAL, kterm. *Should work on:* All Kindles from KT1 onwards. Tested OK on: PW1. *Installation and usage:* * Extract the zip( into /mnt/us/extensions/. * After selecting the sc button in KUAL, a kterm window opens in landscape mode(for better usage convenience on kindles), with the required library pre-loaded. * For a tutorial type 'sc'. * To start your own spreadseet, type 'sc', or similar. * After the spreadsheet opens, enter ? for help. * Type q to quit. Type x to clear a cell. Type =1, =2, etc. to enter numbers. Use arrow keys to move around. * For more detailed instructions, see the files in the attached sc-docs zip file: sc-manual.txt and scqref.txt PW1 screenshots attached. *Links:* * 2010 article from Linux Journal: * 2014 article in xmodulo: * 2002 mini-manual by John Floyd: * YouTube video: * One more YouTube video: * Source mirror in github: * Fork with bug fixes: * Recent development, sc-im, sc-improvised:
