Software Update
In most cases, the Kindle itself updates the firmware by downloading it from the manufacturer’s website. But if you rarely use the network, or just want to be sure that the software on your Kindle is the most up-to-date, you can update the software yourself if necessary. There is nothing complicated about it.
Menu item "Kindle Upgrade" inMenu -> Settings -> Menu OTA update is not relevant. It will become active only if you place the necessary firmware update file in the right place. This menu item only starts the update process of manually uploaded firmware.

1. Check the software version of your Kindle Oasis: in the search field, type; 711 or; 411 and press enter.
2. On the PC, go to pageFire & Kindle Software Updates, find your device in the list (Kindle Oasis (9th Generation) and go to the Software Updates page.
3. If the firmware version on the site is higher than the one on your device, download the update file from the page by clicking onSoftware Update 5.x.x.x
4. Connect the reader to the computer with a USB cable.
5. Copy the update file that you downloaded to your PC to the root directory of the Kindle drive. Not in one of the folders, but next to them.Make sure the copy process is complete!
6. Disconnect the Kindle Oasis from the computer.
7. Start the update process:Menu -> Settings -> Menu -> Kindle upgrade
8. Wait for completion and reboot. This process can take several minutes. Do not turn off the device during the update and do not try to force it to restart by pressing the Power button for a long time!
If you want to block the automatic update on the contrary, You must create a folder in the root folder called update.bin.tmp.partial

Good afternoon. Books sent to the cloud via send to kindle appear in the DOCS folder on the Amazon server.
1) The Kindle for PC program on the computer does not see these books during synchronization. So it should be?
2) Is there no acceptable way to download these books back from the cloud to the computer in any format? The only way I use it is to transfer books via usb to a computer in az3w format

I tried to make it turn on the backlight in the dark, and turn it off in bright light

I have this: I direct the bright light, wait a few seconds, then put 0. Then I cover the sensors, wait, put 4. Then it works in extreme conditions.
But, if put in the middle light, then the level will be set there either in the dark or higher. And when you try to null it, the meaning for the darkness is lost. In general, crap with obscure logic, I support ...

* Paranoire , just creating collections.

Rep: (8)
and for some reason there are no pages in the books.
So many places.
how to be?
Can I return the pages?

Rep: (67)
* Paranoire , not. It is impossible. If you read the header and searched the pages in the topic, you would see that the Kindles do not use pages as uninformative. Only the places or time until the reading of a chapter / part / book extrapolated from your reading speed.

To do this, convert to mobi / azw with pagination.

* BenGunn.13 please send an example. So that the markup is and does not go astray when changing the font.

So that the markup is and does not go astray when changing the font.

What do you mean by "pages"? The number of scrolls from beginning to end of the book?
Dynamic page calculation?

When converting to Kindle, you can take a certain fixed amount of text for 1 page, for example 2000 characters. In this case, nothing depends on the font size. Any font will have the same number of pages, but this has nothing to do with the number of pages. With different font sizes, the screen will fit from several pages to a fraction of one page.

* eliy , * eliy , this is exactly what I meant. A person, as I understand it, wants a screen-page. As in fb2 for example.

Well, to be honest, I didn’t see exactly where the person wants the screen-page. Yes, and programs for reading fb2, the same AlReader, for example, can read pages in different ways: 1024 characters per page, 2048, 4096, dynamically. IMHO dynamically calculated screen-page in general and nothing nafig inappropriately. The total number of pages varies depending on the font size, indentation, protrusions, leading, type of font, etc. and it’s impossible to go back to the desired page without setting everything exactly as it was.
Dividing a book into the same number of characters per page is at least somehow functional ...
