Eject the kindle from the computer
On the kindle:
restart the kindle
Once it's finished and rebooted you should have a new document which is called:
You are Jailbroken
Next copy the install.bin into the root of your kindle and update kindle.
That should be you all sorted.
Hey Akirainblack, I did that already. However, there was no data.tar.gz, only data.stgz. There is a data.tar zip file, i unzipped it, still no data.tar.gz. I've now installed data.stgz into my kindle pw. Do i have to uninstall it?
edit: oops. I put the jailbreak uninstall file into the root of my kindle, restarted it, and got an error 3, which said update unsuccessful, press power button to use kindle.
