Well its hasn’t taken too long for the new Kindle to fall to a Jailbreak and now Kindle users can have a range of additional features at their disposal if required.
Allows users to take advantage of the features that have been added to the old Kindle.
The Jailbreak now allows users to access USB networking, additional font options, and some exciting screen savers to name a few.
Some people reported losing their collections when installing these hacks… It shouldn’t happen, but apparently it’s a bug in the vanilla 2.5 firmware, so make sure you do a Whispernet Sync and/or that you make a backup of your system/collections.json file before doing anything
More information is available about the new Kindle Jailbreaking procedure from the MobileRead forums.
