Thank you for linking these instructions! I have the same problem and can neither download books on my kindle app anymore, nor install the updated version (making my NST kinda useless, which is a shame).
Is there by any chance a simpler way to update my NST or a more elaborate set of instructions? I couldn't find anything else and am not quite tech-savvy enough to quite understand how to update those certificates.
If there is any advice how I can update app or certificates I would be very, very grateful!
Wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to write foolproof instructions!
They were, indeed, easy enough to follow and worked perfectly - thank you! I couldn't be happier that I can use the kindle app again!
One last question: I tried installing version 184.108.40.206.1. of the kindle app and got the "could not parse package"-error-message. The old version (220.127.116.11.5.) worked out fine, though. Is there any other kind of update I need to run in order to install the newest version of kindle for NST? I had uninstalled the old version before I tried, but maybe that wasn't enought.
Either way - I got my books back! Thanks again for helping me!
If you have a file manager (ES FileManager, Root Browser, etc.) installed with root privileges, it's easy:
1. Download the "more complete" cacerts file from the linked posting and copy it to your NST in some convenient folder (Downloads?).
2. Navigate to the system folder. You'll need to change the privileges on this folder to allow you to copy a file into a subfolder. With either of the two file managers I mentioned, a long-press on the system folder will bring up a either a menu with a list that includes "properties" or a list that includes "permissions". For the former, you need to look for the permissions section of the properties. Once you're at "permissions", enable write access for the two remaining "users".
3. Navigate to the system/etc/security folder and there you will see your current cacerts.bks file. Rename it cacerts.bak.
4. Go to the folder (Downloads?) where you copied the new cacerts file and copy/paste or cut/paste the file into system/etc/security. The permissions on the file are not correct at this point. You need to make them the same as the old file (now called cacerts.bak). That's why I had you leave it there. So see what the old permissions are and set the new file to the same.
5. Back out to the system folder and reset its permissions (remove write access for the lower two "users"). Failing to do this may cause a bootloop.
6. Shut down the NST and restart it.
Those were a bit different but make any difference.
Also, the Amazon.co.uk web site reports bad certificates.
I used the cacerts file that was from the posters Google download. Maybe I'll try the other two.
I take it you've tested this with the OP's version of kindle app?
