I guess I'm not making myself clear...
I guess I'm not making myself clear..... I can retrieve my books with other devices and download them and put them onto my Ipod Touch 1G in a variety of ways.... I haven't lost them... what I have lost is the ability to put my Ipod Touch 1G into my pocket, go out into the world, and be able to access (using any Wifi connection) the library that I have built on Amazon.
I love its size and portability, but I refuse to spend upwards of $400.00 to replace it, when the only problem I have with it is that the new Kindle app isn't supported...
I haven't given up.... fishing is how I ended up here on your extremely helpful site, with a jailbroken iPod Touch 1G
- Yes you did and that is why I am trying to show workarounds for you and other Whited00r users. ...lost is the ability to put my iPod Touch 1G into my pocket... access (using any Wifi connection) the library that I have built on Amazon. ...I refuse to spend upwards of $400.00 to replace it, when the only problem I have with it is that the new Kindle app isn't supported
- What you do not understand is Apple's and Amazon Planned Obsolescence
They want you to get rid of your perfectly good working old iPod Touch 1G/2G or iPhone 2G/3G and buy news devices from them. So that is why they are removing systematically from iTunes all the old apps versions compatible with iOS 4.2.1 and all the new versions are requiring iPod Touch 3G and iPhone 3GS and newer.
And that is precisely
why Whited00r was created! From the About - What is Whited00r
page: Here you will find full support for all ARMv6 family Apple devices: iPhone 2G-3G, iPod Touch 1G-2G.
And we don't make any money doing that custom iOS firmware because it is free.
And that is also precisely
was created by a group totally independent from Whited00r. We don't know who they are but they are doing a pretty darn good job IMO in preserving all those essential compatible apps that iTunes is taking offline (eBay, Facebook, Skype, Instagram, WhatsApp, Dropbox, etc, etc, the list is way too long to post here!) and they were cool enough to give us exclusive access to their Store of old free cracked apps directly from the custom WD 6 App Market
we created. I guess they like our Whited00r iOS jailbroken and unlocked firmware and forum community. The easiest is to forget having access to your Amazon library via cloud and do what I described above: local eBooks & transfer to iPod Touch or iPhone.
Now here is my workaround
to have all my eBooks, music, etc in the cloud and access them on my iPhone 3G over the air because you know maybe that the Apple/iTunes iCloud app was made not compatible on purpose with our old & good working devices: requires iOS 5 or later on iPhone 3GS or later, iPod touch (3rd generation or later).
1- Get a free Dropbox
account if you don't already have one.
2- Get the free Dropbox v1.4.6 app from App Time Machine.
3- Crack your eBooks as described above and convert them to .pdf
with Calibre and drag & drop them to the eBook folder you created in your Dropbox account.
Why convert them to .pdf
? Because that Dropbox v1.4.6 app for iOS does not let you view natively .epub nor download them nor download them if you rar that .epub but works fine with pdf and Stanza can read it fine.
I also tried to share my Dropbox eBook folder link via email to myself & opened it with the iOS Mail app and clicking on the link opens the Dropbox folder in Safari from wich you can normally open the shared Dropbox folder and download directly from it but Safari returned an error saying that it cannot download it.
But for Music and all Dropbox app natively compatible files, you can open them (listen to music stream via WiFi or 3G Data for example!) or download them locally on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
*****Dropbox Native file types supported
There are a number of file formats that can be opened natively on the iPhone and iPod Touch by simply selecting the file from the file browser. You can view these in the Dropbox app by simply tapping them from the primary Dropbox tab.
- Images (.jpg, .tiff, .gif)
- Music (.mp3, .aiff, .m4a, .wav)
- Movies (.mov, .mp4, .m4v)
- Microsoft Word documents (.doc, .docx)
- Microsoft PowerPoint presentations (.ppt, .pptx)
- Microsoft Excel spreadsheets (.xls, .xlsx)
- Adobe PDF (.pdf)
- Keynote presentations (.key)
- Pages documents (.pages)
- Numbers spreadsheets (.numbers)
- Web pages (.htm, .html)
- Text and rich-text files (.txt, .rtf, and many more)
Video on Dropbox: When converting using something other than iTunes or the Handbrake presets mentioned above, you'll need to meet specific criteria. The Dropbox iPhone app can play the following iPhone-compatible movie types:
- H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC stereo audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, in .mov, .mp4 and .m4v file formats
- H.264 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Baseline Profile up to Level 3.0 with AAC-LC stereo audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, in .mov, .mp4 and .m4v file formats
- MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC stereo audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, in .mov, .mp4 and .m4v file formats
When I find some free time, I want to make a Dropbox tutorial in this forum. Hopefully soon.
If you insist on trying to find a iOS 3.1.3 compatible app to read your Amazon Kindle books directly from Amazon cloud
then I suggest you create a specific thread with that precise question. It is a fool's errand IMO.
Sorry but as far as I know Amazon decided to make that impossible
on our older devices.
You should complain to them
about that IMO like our community effort about WhatsApp that partially made them back off: [50% Solved] WhatsApp WD6 Problem - Partially Working Update!
