Yes, I know. But your questions make no sense.

Did you jailbreak and started experimenting with your Kindle three days after you got it? Ask yourself if you would be happy if you were in my shoes and someone gave you exactly the same advice with exactly the same attitude.
You have all the information that you need from the posts that you linked to. It is up to you to decide if you want to take the risk or not. If it was really as unsafe as you seem to think it is, be sure that you would have seen a post about that, in the very thread you are referencing.

And yes, I jailbroke my Kindle 10 minutes after I received it.

But unlike unlike this problem there is pretty much none information about mine anywhere.
And why did you write 2 almost identical posts? Is that your idea of a good contribution to a forum?
If you look around, you will see that my contributions in this forum are generally useful. You asked for that reaction because YOU were misbehaving, and because you kept asking the same question again and again. "Is this safe?" "Is that safe?" "Does this work?" "Does that work?". If you have concerns, don't do it.

Will do. I'm retiring from this thread.
