A question about the new oasis

I now have a PW2 and the voyage. My question is: Is the new oasis worth the price? The only reason I am thinking of it is the larger screen.

Troubleshooting Really weird behaviour of PW3

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 23:05:46 GMT

Hello! My PW3 recently has started behaving like a faulty device. The firmware is 5.9.2. 1. The screen sometimes completely freezes (mainly in the main book list) and it won't react to any touches. 2. Now when I wanted to turn it on, the led lights up in green for 2 seconds and nothing happens. What's wrong? :blink: OK the second one was solved by fully restarting the device by holding the button for 30 secs. But what about the first one? Why is it happening sometimes? :smack:

Plato — A document reader for PDF, ePUB, DjVu, etc.

Plato ( is my attempt at building a wise and tidy reader. The program is still in its early stages, and yet I already get more joy out of using it than the other readers I've tried. Follow the guide ( if you want to give it a try.

Glo Intercompatibility of displays

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 13:42:57 GMT

Greetings all, I have recently cracked the display of my trusty Kobo Glo. I know I could get a used one for about the same price, but I would like to fix mine if I could. I have removed the display (following this helpful guide ( and now I need to find a replacement one. I have found a Kobo Glo HD with damaged USB port for a good price in my region. My question is: *Will the display from the Glo HD work in my Glo?* Thank-you in advance, kind people.

K5 I cannot log onto my KT with any username or password

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 12:32:15 GMT

Previously on firmware 5.3.7, I can log onto my kindle using ssh with any password. I don't know why. Both "root" and "framework" worked that way. A few days ago, I updated firmware of KT to the latest and got it jailbroken and added extensions to KUAL. Now I cannot access my Kindle with any combination of username and password, either via USB cable or over WIFI. Even when I used "framework" and "mario", it showed "Access Denied" on WinSCP. Can I have any help? Image:

HD how to debug auto wake/ sleep

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 09:41:05 GMT

we have a fire for kids bundle - that's the 2016 Fire HD 8 with some extra software and a silicone rubber edge protector... .. because there is no protection for front of screen I decided last week to move it into a folio style case with auto sleep/wake.. I have now tried 2 different cases, a WIZFUN one that I returned thinking it was faulty and a hard shell amazon book style one now in use, both said to do the sleep wake trick. but they don't. There ARE magnets in the amazon cover - I can stick paperclips to it, but no matter how I position and waggle it - no joy. I also tried moving the strongly magnetized case from my HDX all over the HD 8 screen but I cannot get auto wake to kick in. so do I have a faulty tablet or is it not working by design? AFAIK the fire for kids 2016 bundle was the same hardware as the regular Fire HD 8 (2016). I tried reading old reviews but none mention this feature or lack of.. So I am 0 for 2 on two cases with a 3rd , different make, oneon its way via ebay from China. if that does not work either, I will have to conclude its the tablet , not the cases. then it is a question of "is it supposed to work" or not. Is there any safe way to run other tests e.g. with fridge magnets. I know that magnets and magnetic storage do not play nice together so I am a bit wary... Ideally, some kind person out there with the exact same bundle from amazon will give me feedback. or even someone with a regular Fire HD 8 2016. I did have one of those but I sold it, without a case, & now I cannot remember if it had this issue or not.. I have also written to amazon & will update here if I get a sensible reply

which file contains search bar history keyword?

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 06:50:56 GMT

Every time to run file, it needs typing ";log runme" in kindle search bar, When I search some regular keyword in the search bar, kindle always store searched history keyword but not";log runme" My plan is to find the file which contains search bar history keyword, force write in ";log runme" e.g I searched "tom and jerry", then open xterm : find / -type f -exec grep -l "tom and jerry" {} \; but find nothing searched history keyword is not store in file, in memory?

I've searched and can't find how on the audible player on the Oasis to change the timer from chapter to complete book. I drive a lot and need to know, I have sufficient book remaining to cover the journey. We all know the feeling 30 minutes from home and the audiobook finishes:angry: Any help appreciated.

Best UI on Older E-readers?

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 20:14:05 GMT

I just got a claimed NOS Sony PRS-350 and love the user interface compared to Kindle and Kobo all touch screen units. The 5 buttons across the bottom and the overall user interface are excellent IMO The included stylus is a neat feature too and the Sony aesthetics of their readers is hard to beat with the metal outer covers. Enough so that I just grabbed a PRS-900 off of Amazon with cases and original boxes, charger etc. Had to update the firmware on my PRS-505 and PRS-350 as delivered but both went without a hitch. PRS-505 firmware was so old it did not support EPUB files. So I now have the PRS-505, PRS-300, PRS-350 and the PRS-900 is on the way. Be interesting to compare the PRS-900 to my Kindle Oasis 2, both with 7" screens.

Images not showing

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 17:59:34 GMT

Hi, I transferred a book from my kindle to calibre that contains diagrams and photos. These show up when read on my kindle. The book in my calibre library has all the text OK but the diagrams and images do not show up. It is in AZW3 format. I want to use the book (crochet patterns) on my pc screen but need the diagrams and photos too. Any ideas anyone? Many thanks. Brenda

Is there a way to ADD A NEW BOOK via dropbox after syncing is setup?

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 17:23:03 GMT

I read on my android tablet & phone. Dropbox syncing for position/highlights/notes is set up and working. Option to copy to dropbox after opening is enabled. I copied a new epub to the /Dropbox/apps/ebooks directory ;; but how do I get moon reader to open it for the first time? Also, what are the easiest ways to send a .epub to my android devices? I thought it would be using dropbox? I'm seeking a duplicate to sending a device to my kindle devices via email. Thanks! UPDATE: I moved my calibre library to my dropbox... then am using calibre companion to download books I want. Much better! Question now: Is there any point to having moon reader backup the book to dropbox when I open it on moon reader? It seems superfluous now that my entire library is already backed up via dropbox.

What do you set your margins to?

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 23:32:47 GMT

hi all, no flames here, please, i just want to get some insights. i've always set my margins to be as small as possible on all of the Kindles i've used/owned, but do some of you out there use wider margins? if so, why? one reason i could think of doing that is to avoid any shadows/light cones or reducing the effect of screen gradients upon the text being read... i tried that but after a few moments really missed using the full screen real estate. thanks for sharing your experiences/preferences!
