Default How to get rid of Amazon Advertisements ! ROOT NEEDED!

This will get rid of those annoying ads on your lockscreen.

Assuming your device is rooted and you have ES File Explorer.

Make sure that in ES File Explorer setting>root settings everything is checked.


Now open ES File Explorer and go to "SYSTEM" folder, then go to "APP" folder, look for Dtcp_apk.apk, simply rename it to Dtcp_apk.bat. now you can turn your screen off and on and no more ads will show.!

Another way is to change permission on the file by long press on dtcp_apk.apk and go down to properties and tapping change on the right hand side and uncheck all boxes. then press ok and ok on the next screen.

Edit: if none of these work, a third way is to download ROM Toolbox, go to App Manager>All Apps>Kindle Special Offers. touch it and touch Freeze. it should disable the offers immediately.

Reboot device to make sure it works.

Yeah. I tried both methods. I still have ads on my touchscreen. I guess I'll have to pay the $15.

Thank you. This worked! I used Titanium Backup Pro, which also has a freeze option.

I do enjoy them. Any way I can use my own wallpaper? Just asking for when I get tired of the stock wallpaper.

yea its possible. i have tried this method though and it did not work for me. but i tried on a friends kindle and it worked. go here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1898198 its a bit of work but you might have good results in the end. just make sure you make a backup copy of your framework-res.apk and make sure you have the correct pixels on the pictures you want.

i had to reroot my HD after the 7.1.4 update (or whatever the newest one was) and the ads came back mixed with the launcher lockscreen so i used the second method blocking it by unchecking the permissions
thanks
