Yay, new obfuscation! (probably, I haven't yet looked into the update)

Since it is part of the 5.3.x series of (locked down) firmware -

I strongly suggest you leave that update alone until one of the dev's here can check if the Jailbreak survives the update.

... but as it's Kindle Touch, even if it locks down everything, that's not really an issue. They can't disable USB downloader mode on the Touch, so we'll always be able to get into fastboot and diags.

Edit: Might be different for the Paperwhite, which I assume will also get this update. Then again, on the PW, one can always downgrade to 5.3.1...

OK UI is looking nice, seems to be the same as on PW (I do not own one .... yet).
I have not had a look under the hood of the "thing", best I wait for ixtab swearing at Amazon ...

Just checked the patch file with kindletool. It contains the new fonts.cramfs.img framework for fonts like the PW, but all the fonts are OLD 5.1.0 (and 5.1.1, 5.1.2) versions! This is not a matter of PW screen resolution - K4 has the same resolution screen as Touch and has newer fonts in its version 4.1.0.

Sure - we can.

But still the common (non-hacker) user would probably like to know if they are about to lose all of their customizations.

No worries. It simply fails with error 006 if modifications are present.

Interesting that the new K5 Touch firmware version number leapfrogged over the latest PW firmware version.

I wonder if they will come out with new firmware that supports all K5s (Touch and Paperwhite), similar to how 4.1.0 supports both silver and black K4s.

And will PWs that come with 5.3.2 (or later) need an all new jailbreak?

No, it's not missing. Copying the pubdevkey01.pem there (from a booted diags) works, and you can install usbnet using the update.bin afterwards.
