    Hi,

    Could you explain how your would reverse all of this so you can get your Kindle back to how it was?

    Thanks

      It’s fortunately not rocket science. If you were careful enough to back up the screensavers of course.

      1\ Boot in diagnostics mode, enable USBNet log in as root over SSH.
      2\ Access the filesystem as writable:
      mntroot rw
      3\ Delete your screensavers folder on the sdcard. This will clear the symbolic link too:
      rm -r /mnt/us/screensaver
      4\ Copy the backup of the screensaver folder to it’s original place
      mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/base-mmc
      mv /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800.old/mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800

      5\ Not sure if this is relevant but just to be sure
      mntroot r
      6\ Reboot your kindle by exiting the diagnostics mode.

      You can now update your kindle software (I’m guessing that this is what you want to do). After you updated you can redo this screensavers hack again.
