Collections Manager should be far less firmware-version-dependent than, for instance, JBPatch. In fact, it might work out of the box on Paperwhites. At least, substituting the Amazon libraries on the build path with the files from FW 5.2.0 (instead of FW 5.1.2) does not produce any compile errors, so it might actually just work.

To test it, you will need:
- the developer keys - need to be manually installed
- the Kindlet jailbreak (manually install it as outlined in the src/ folder) - this should install without any problems; the original file is the same on the Touch and PW.
- and of course the .azw2 file from the first post.

I would be interested to know whether it works, or if it doesn't, which errors it produces. In case of hangs or crashes, more information is available either in the system log, or in /mnt/us/developer/Collections Manager/work/ (well, at least, that's where logs go on the Kindle Touch).

Anyone?

So... a little update:

- I now repackaged the Kindlet Jailbreak package, so that it can (also) be installed on the Paperwhite. You can download it here. This file should be SAFE to install/uninstall on your Paperwhite. And while you will not see any noticeable effect of the install or uninstall, please let me know if it succeeded (=rebooted and brought you back to the normal UI without any error).

- Since the Kindlet Jailbreak now has a package for installation, only the developer keys still have to be manually installed.

- a working usbnetwork package (which is required to get root access for manually installing the other dependencies) can be obtained from this thread.

Any feedback is very welcome.
