UYK is a common acronym used here at MR, for "Update Your Kindle".

It makes sense that firmware updates older than 4.1.0 may not support the new K4B serial number prefix. In fact, I think that the hack update packages needed to be modified to support the new serial number prefixes as I recall). The older firmware updates may not support the new serial number, which would explain the grayed-out UYK menu.

So, we may need a newer firmware image to properly debrick a K4B.
