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.
I’ve been doing some playing about with the recent kindle 3.1 firmware release. The salient points are: The jailbreak can no longer be installed because Amazon have patched the busybox tar exploit which allowed unrestricted writing to the root filing system.

If you’ve already rooted+installed my developer keys, all you need to do is unzip it onto your kindle over USB. If you’re installingContinue reading “KIF 0.5”
Wow, this sort of thing seems to be in the news these days! Note: I’ve updated these instructions for KIF 0.5; please see here for the release notes.. My app is different however: it isn’t web hosted, it runs natively on the kindle using the KDK APIs.
