The essential guide to IT transformation

Jailbreak

You'll find the code you need to both jailbreak the Kindle and the sleep screen code at Mobile Read, a forum for e-book buffs.

Kindle - drop in the install file

Drop the install file into the Kindle folder in your file browser

First, the jailbreak - download this file kindle-jailbreak-0.7.N.zip then extract the files it contains. There are different installation files inside for each Kindle - pick the one that matches yours:

update_jailbreak_0.7.N_k2_install.bin for Kindle 2 US
update_jailbreak_0.7.N_k2i_install.bin for Kindle 2 International

update_jailbreak_0.7.N_dx_install.bin for Kindle DX US
update_jailbreak_0.7.N_dxi_install.bin for Kindle DX International
update_jailbreak_0.7.N_dxg_install.bin for Kindle DX Graphite

update_jailbreak_0.7.N_k3w_install.bin for Kindle 3 WiFi
update_jailbreak_0.7.N_k3gb_install.bin for Kindle 3 3G UK
update_jailbreak_0.7.N_k3g_install.bin for Kindle 3 3G US

Next, connect the Kindle to you computer by USB, open the folder that will appear in your OS' file browser, and drop in the update_jailbreak_0.7.N.... Eject the Kindle, and go to the reader's Settings menu. There, press the Menu key and select the now active Update Your Kindle option.

This will reboot the Kindle - not a quick process - and apply the update.

When it has restrarted, re-connect it to your computer. Next, download this file kindle-ss-0.22.N.zip. This contains the sleep screen hack code and, again, you'll need to select the right install file for your particular Kindle, eg.

update_ss_0.22.N_k3w_install.bin for Kindle 3 WiFi
update_ss_0.22.N_k3gb_install.bin for Kindle 3 3G UK

Copy the install file into the Kindle's folder in your file browser, as you did before.

Kindle - get to Settings  Kindle Restart menu

Go to the Settings screen then hit the Menu key to 'Upodate Your Kindle' or 'Restart' it

You'll also need to copy over the folder linkss - you'll find it in the src folder within the zip archive you just downloaded. Don't copy src itself, just linkss.
