weather-on-kindle4nt

Features

  • The original function as an ebook reader remains
  • Doesn't require any crontab usage
  • Caches the last successfully downloaded weather file until it expires at 24:00 (So you can take away your 'weather station' in the pub and show it all your friends.)
  • The download is written in the '/tmp' directory which is a temporary filesystem(32M), living in the memory

Please take a look at the release page.

Note
You need to install kite to launch the program.
Before that you have to jailbreak the Kindle and to install the USBNetwork Hacks.
Please use the

  • kindle-usbnetwork-0.53.N-k4.rar (2.85 MB)

from the 'Attached Files' section on this site.
Jeniffer has written a very good tutorial, esp. for the Windows guys.
