@NiLuJe: See if chattr/lsattr works on that system.
Things may have changed since I last used it for anything.

It (extended permissions) went in about the same time as the gid and uid was extended (about 2.3?) and was a concession to not extending the capabilities system to files.

Yes. This question has been answered about 1000 times now. Use "update your kindle" to install updates. Don't just reboot.

I had a brief search and couldn't find anything useful, till now.

I would recommend this being written in the Readme file, or in the first post.

Anyway you saved me lots of time (and my brain). Thanks a lot.

Will installing this jailbreak allow me to install the custom screensaver hack, which in turn allows me to have custom screensavers on my kindle paperwhite with special offers? Not trying to evade the advertisements, just that I really want to personalize my kindle. Its fine when its a little bar when I'm browsing through my book list, but looking at an advertisement every time i wake my kindle makes it feel as if its a "stranger", not one of my own belongings.

IT IS written in the first post, open the spoiler with the "install directions". There you will find that you should RESTART your Kindle (and how to do that), not re-boot your Kindle.

Hello, I've installed the 1.5N Jailbreak on my Paperwhite, I got the "jailbreaking screen" which isn't the whole display of the kindle and the you are now Jailbroken book.
However I can't install the USBnet or anything required for Collections Manager.
Kindcalc works perfectly.
I figured I'd start over again, dropped the 1.5 uninstall.bin onto my paperwhite which was promptly deleted by the kindle.
I'm on FW Kindle 5.2.0 1729740065

Is there any fix for this?

Thank you,

Except I'm now confused, since you mention FW 5.2.0.

Is this a Touch, or a PW? Would it happen to be a European/Japanese 3G model? If it is, what's the S/N prefix, and to which country was it shipped?

Hello NiLuJe

My paperwhite arrived this morning, which is mentioned in the post. Haven't updated my profile yet.

@Akirainblack: Thanks, but that doesn't answer any of the actually interesting questions, though .

Namely: what's the S/N prefix? Where was it shipped? What model is it (WiFi only? 3G?)

Yup, completely normal. Will add support for this one in KindleTool, and repack everything, thanks! .

excellent, thank you NiLuJe, does this mean the other things needed for Collections Manager will work as well, or will I need to wait.
Also, and I don't mean to sound pushy, merely curious, how long is that likely to take?

Thank you again.
