Mmmm... How am I supposed to "Update my Kindle" after a reboot if I should not reboot after I have copied the file? I did it like this: copied the update file to the Kindle, unplugged from computer, rebooted the device, then tried the Update Kindle link. If I did not copy the file before the rebooting, the link would be grayed out, and it would be just like I did nothing. What am I doing/understanding wrong?

No, nothing else on the Kindle

Yes, sorry: that it does not update and returns a U007 error

Is it necessary? That would need me to install another hack, and it looks like it is actually because of hacks that I cannot update to 3.4. I would rather solve this problem first, and then get that luring SSH access, than reverse

@Ste_95: Restart ([HOME] > [MENU] > Settings > [MENU] > Restart) first, then copy the .bin, unplug & UYK . If the UYK link is greyed out, it means you've put the wrong file for your Kindle model, check your S/N again.

If you don't have a linkjail folder, you've been uninstalling the wrong jailbreak all along. Uninstall Yifan's, then reboot before trying anything else.

And, no, the changes grapherd made are (a bad idea) that's (hopefully) not widespread, and you'd be aware of it if you'd done it .

Hello.

I have a Kindle 3 3g bought in Amazon.com (serial number B006).

I have tried to jailbreak it with update_jailbreak_0.11.N_k3g_install.bin, but in the update report an error (U004) and kindle restart without installing the update.

My kindle is on firmware 3.4 and i never jailbreak it in the past.

What's the problem?

What can i do?


Thanks.

You need the update package with "-3.2.1" in its file name? Read the README file. It is also in the first post Jailbreak spoiler.

@NiLuJe: You really should document that somewhere to prevent these problems.

Please use the file corresponding to your kindle model suffixed by -3.2.1, the other one won't work on these newer FW versions, while the -3.2.1 file won't work on older FW versions. Check your Settings page if you're unsure of what FW your Kindle is running.

@NiLuJe: Maybe a larger font? Do we have "blink" available?

Hmm...
Write that text in Gimp - clone multiple layers - make color changes per layer - save as an animated *.gif - include in post as an in-line image.

Actually, people will still not see that warning when they don't read the first post or the README file. I think NiLuJe really needs it in his signature on all his posts.

But then they probably won't read his signature, so perhaps he should use that animated GIF that knc1 mentioned as his avatar. But will that be enough to get noticed?

Pulsating yellow/orange on an emerald green.
Scale the font sizes on each layer, to perhaps emulate a 'nuke explosion with the text.

Maybe host them somewhere else and have a notice popup before they are allowed to download the files.

Thanks A LOT, that solved the problem. I uninstalled the jailbreak and was finally able to update to firmware 3.4. I will jailbreak again with the one available in this topic

I may look at them when I have a couple of spare days, I would really love to get more into this Kindle hacking stuff.

Perhaps you should re-name the downloads, so that the one for 3.2.1 and later firmware has no number, and the older one has "-3.2-and-earlier"?

We do not recommend removing Special Offers without paying amazon to do that for you. You can, but that is your own personal choice. If you choose to do it anyway, there are threads that tell how to remove Special Offers, but you need some technical skill to do that. You may find what you seek in the K4 hacking wiki. Look in the master index / K4 index.
