Tell us about yourself!
No I wasn't. The bleeding becomes worse over days and then I have to reboot to get it to work. PITA.
Could be those missing files. Just restart the kindle. Make sure clockisticking file is not present. Run the startStopClock script.
When you edited the root file in crontab, you were in SSH. Go to the directory where timelit scripts are residing and just type "sh startStopClock.sh"
The blank screen could be because its missing the image file for that instance. Make sure the file "clockisticking" is not present in the directory. Run the script in SSH. Wait for 2 or 3 minutes. The clock should display.Also, when you run the script in SSH, note the output. It might say something like "no image found". You will end up with a blank screen at that moment.
Somebody else had the same issue in the comments below where the kindle displays blank and then restarts. They run the startStopClock.sh via SSH instead of Shift+C.
I think it's supposed to have those spaces. I copied the text exactly and pasted in crontab root file.
You can still SSH to your kindle over a wired connection.
