Whenever I press the power button on my Kindle Touch, an image is displayed on the e-ink screen. The images depict various typographical tools and elements (like a typewriter, etc.).

However, it would be nice to use my own images in their place. Is this possible? How would I go about doing this?

This is possible. However, you must jailbreak your Kindle first. Basically you:

  1. Jailbreak the Kindle.
  2. Load the screensaver hack to your Kindle.
  3. Copy the images to your Kindle. This site has a list of places to get these.
