On Kpw 5.3.1 -

Grab the Kindle Paperwhite Jailbreak.
Follow readme directions to install.
According to log file - that took 36 seconds.

Grab the Amazon 5.3.1 -> 5.3.3 update.
Follow the Amazon update instructions.
(and expect that update to wipe-out the Kindlet Dev. Keys)

Grab the version-0.2 launcher.
Follow the directions in the readme file.
(Including creating the Kindle:/extensions folder.)

Touch the document "Kindle Launcher"
Launcher reports that the Kindlet (Developer Keys) Jailbreak are not installed.
(The expected result at this point.)

** at which point - we need an intermission of some very fine guitar picking**
Spoiler:

(2-1/2 minutes of Slash doing an Alice Cooper solo.)


Next, grab the Kindlet-Jailbreak : http://ge.tt/3ZRY9XE/v/71
Follow the readme instructions to install.

Bingo - A working launcher with a blank list that matches the empty extensions directory.

Next - try the "Helper" scripts - -
- - - FIXED for Kpw - - - but not tested at this point in the post.

Next - try kTerm http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=202794
Grabs 0.4 - Unzip - copy folder under extensions - eject device - tap launcher - tap kTerm - it just works.
Not much can be said against that! (This **IS** Kpw-5.3.3)!

Next - grab Collections Manager (2.3.3) -
Unzip - move the *.azw2 and the *.png to the documents directory - eject - find in home menu - tap - it just works.

Enough for tonight - scroll up - un-spoil Slash - get some good mood music in your ears.

**Next intermission - possibly the greatest keyboard riff ever recorded**
Spoiler:


After a bit of a break, like more than two days . . .

Remove the old version-0.2.0 launcher 'book' from documents and delete it's helper sub-directory under extensions.
Unpack the version-0.2.1 launcher - put in the documents folder.
Unpack the newer (fixed up) helper sub-directory under extensions.
Eject USB storage device.
Like magic, the diagnostic query(ies) now work on the Kpw-5.3.3 (that 711 thing).


Grab the kindle-usbnet-0.7.N.zip package from:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=186645
Don't believe that title - that thread is also the home of the USBnetwork package, scroll down to the attachments.

un-zip the package to a local directory on your PC.
Read the README_FIRST.txt file. This is a test, you must pass it.
Is there anything mentioned in there about networking administration you don't know? Well, like the author says, then don't use this package.

Place the 'install' package on root of USB storage, eject USB storage, un-plug the cable since you are about to mess with the cable's hardware interface . . . .
Do the usual: home -> menu -> settings -> menu -> update Kindle routine.

When the Kindle completes its update, still with the USB cable dis-connected, try:
Kindle Launcher -> 711 (Network Info.)
** Which now does not work - it worked just prior to this installation! **
There be a bug that needs squashing here (twobob is on it), see:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=246

** Guess we need another intermission here. **
A little traveling music for the thinker:
Spoiler:


Setting up the USBnetwork interface is now described in a new thread:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=204450

Note: All music in this post is 'twobob approved' listening.
