pbchess-1.2.5 for KindleTouch - new build

Postby sergeyvl » Thu Feb 07, 2013 9:59 pm

Hi!

Existing build of pbchess-1.2.5 for Kindle Touch doesn't work with the new KT firmware 5.3.2.

The new build is ready:

http://pbchess.vlasovsoft.net/files/pbc ... kt_new.zip

It doesn't use GUI Launcher any more as GUI Launcher doesn't work with the 5.3.2 firmware. It uses the new Kindle

Unified Application Launcher (KUAL)

Installation:
1. Install Unified Application Launcher if not installed
2. Completely remove your previous installation (BACKUP LICENSE KEY AND BASES!)
2. Unpack pbchess-1.2.5_kt_new.zip archive
3. Copy all the folders from archive to Kindle flash root (with overwriting).
