Hi, a number of people have reported problems with my kindle devkeys 0.2 and the 3.1 firmware. I can’t seem to replicate the problem here on two kindles (both K3GB – UK wifi+3G). I’ve just reinstalled the latest jailbreak from mobileread. I then deleted my keystore from the device and reinstalled it from the zipfileContinue reading “kindle devkey problems?”
Cool, looks like there’s now a Kindle 3.1 jailbreak! See here. Update: The latest jailbreak is available from the normal mobileread thread, here. I’ve confirmed it works with installing my devkeys.
Just got an email from Amazon saying if I turn my Kindle on and leave it connected to WIFI for a few minutes it’ll automatically download and install the latest firmware update. Be careful with your jailbreak!

I didn’t want to have to deal with drawing bitmaps or anything in a library designedContinue reading “Pickit2 Logic Analyser in pypickit”
It is obvious that more than one person will want to write homebrew for the Kindle. However, with my (now defunct) adqdevkeys-0.1 package, it just copies the file over whatever is already there, so we can only have one set on a device at one time. Annoying! Therefore, I’ve just written a small Java programContinue reading “Merging developer keystores on the Kindle”
Originally I had been trying to get Snow Leopard to work in qemu-kvm, and it kind of does; I had even thought of contributing to that project to make it work even better (e.g. the e1000 emulation does not work under Mac OS X). However, I decided that I simply don’t have the time: IContinue reading “Switching to Virtualbox and getting Snow Leopard to work in a VM”
