Of pertinence here:
Section 6 Conveying Non-Source Forms. - "Installation Information"
Owners of the Kindle Paperwhite should ask Amazon for the information specified (their encryption keys, among other things).
I don't own a Kindle Paperwhite, I can't do it for you.
Go get'm tigers!
WOW, that's a huge news! I thought that they used only GPLv2, but if there's also code on GPLv3, then they indeed *legally have to* allow jailbreaking and provide all necessary information for that, as you citied.
I surely will ask them, thanks for heads up!
