After the 6th point you should have a new network Kindle. In the properties of the network connection to send ip 192.168.15.201. This is for Windows 7
It then starts Putti

Forgive me for asking but I have already searched everywhere but could not find an answer. I'm a few steps away from Jailbreaking my Kindle Touch 5.3.2 but I'm stuck here:

Configure the computer's USB network interface to use the static IP address 192.168.15.201


How do you configure a computer's USB network interface? I've tried looking online but to no avail. By the way, I'm on a Mac with 10.7 as the OS.

Please help?
twobob posted that answer, with pictures, recently somewhere here for it - search his posts.
OR, the wiki index pages in the forum sticky.

Thank you for the reply. I managed to get to the last part without errors.

Last question: How do I know if my Kindle has been successfully jailbroken? Is there a way to check?

Thank you

Hey, So I'm trying to jailbreak but after getting into fastboot with mfgTool and using the fastboot tool to try to flash kt_5.0.0-diags_kernel.img, I get an error saying 'writing
'kt_5.0.0-diags_kernal'...
FAILED (remote: Invalid partition)'

Help would be appreciated, thanks

fastboot flash diags_kernel kt_5.0.0-diags_kernel (from memory, CHECK THAT, I just did)

You are missing a target alias. This is a bad tool to use without understanding. It can do very bad things... (you asked it - with your malformed command - to write from STDIN to an unknown target partition called kt_5.0.0-diags_kernel from what I can make of the error, thanks goodness you dont have one called that ; ) )

try fastboot --help - worth a read. For sure.

That one (without a target specified) should have errored out without any damage.
But only as a matter of luck.

As twobob said: at least read the help file!

Hi everyone! I'm trying to do JB on KT 5.3.2. Previously I posted a long post, but in the meantime I found what I looked for in "Small debricking guide for “noobs”" thread. I think it will work, because I haven't checked it yet - having concerns about file versions.
As my Kindle is working on 5.3.2, the files attached to this post are for older version. In this guide, there is a statment that:
Quote:
N.B It should be totally clear that:
- main kernel version MUST MATCH main partition version
- diags kernel version MUST MATCH diags partition version
- main partition doesn’t necessary have the same version of diags partition
Can I use kt_5.0.0-kernel_diags.gz and kt_5.0.1-mmcblk0p2_diags+ssh.img.gz for my Kindle?

For people who are having problems with Mfgtool -> download KindleSelectBoot from this forum, it consists proper Mfgtool for Kindle.

Old post here:
Spoiler:

Hi everyone! I'm trying to do JB on KT 5.3.2. Unfortunately I got stuck on second point.
English is not my native language, but I understand it without translator. However I'm not familiar with technical terms, so could you help me?
That's my brothers' Kindle, he wants new functions and I like modding. But I'd like not to destroy it as well.

It would be great, if someone could give me (technical dummie) Step-by-step tutorial.
I downloaded these files:
Code:
-Mfgtools-Rel-1.6.2.042_BluetechnixExtended3.zip
-kt_5.0.0-kernel_diags.gz
-fastboot_win_public.zip
-kt_5.0.1-mmcblk0p2_diags+ssh.img.gz
-Kindle-Fastboot.inf (file generated in libusb, I think so)
-libusb-win32-bin-1.2.6.0.zip
-libusb-win32-devel-filter-1.2.6.0.exe
-pubdevkey01.pem.zip.
- Putty client
That's all I have.

Having read those threads:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=171460
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=2000997
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=2002101
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=2001621

I think I should do this:
  1. unzip, and upload pubdevkey01.pem to main dir
  2. now - I should put kindle into fastboot mode, but:
    when I use Mfgtools nothing happens (KT is not detected by this tool), so:
    a) install Kindle-Fastboot.inf somehow, or
    b) plug Kindle with Power button pressed, press Home button, release Power, release Home.
  3. Next step - can I use fastboot_win_public.zip for these points?
    Code:
    download, gunzip, and flash the diags kernel using fastboot flash diags_kernel kt_5.0.0-kernel_diags
    download, gunzip, and flash the SSH-enabled diags partition using fastboot flash diags kt_5.0.1-mmcblk0p2_diags+ssh.img
    boot into diags mode using fastboot setvar bootmode diags, followed by fastboot reboot
  4. Where do I choose it? On Kindle, or my Computer?
    Code:
    Once in diags mode, enable USB Networking by choosing the following entries in this order: N - U - Z - X
  5. Code:
    Configure the computer's USB network interface to use the static IP address 192.168.15.201
    SSH to the Kindle (its IP is 192.168.15.244) using username: root, password: mario
    I think I can manage it, I use Control Panel in Windows for USB network and Putty for SSH? What's the formula for SSH?
  6. Code:
    Finally, execute the following commands on the Kindle:
    Kindle has any terminal??

I have Windows 7 SP1 x64, and XP SP3 x32, but can download Ubuntu LiveCD if needed.
Thank you for reading

Ixtab has provided the exact commands. You only have to copy/paste them.

I don't see how pictures are going to help with that?

Much simpler: use Kubrick and select to install the jailbreak, then re-upgrade to 5.3.2.
