Those links have been dead for months now - -
Just try: http://ixtab.tk/kindle-touch-images.php

Note that all of those images are compressed for storage, you will have to un-compress them.
Linux/MacOSx : gunzip
WinBox: 7zip will un-compress them.

Those are the exact files for a K5 (Kindle Touch).

That tutorial has gone through a number of revisions - -
We don't know which version of the tutorial you are reading - -
But we do know which versions of the files you should use.

Ok, I'll just delete the file from the server. Makes more sense. Thanks for the heads up.
Thanks for clearing that up ixtab.

Can I just go ahead use the update_*README instructions on my 5.3.2 level firmware? I am guessing that this doesn't downgrade the firmware or am I just being thick?

No, you don't need these exact files.

You need a diags kernel, a diags partition, a main kernel, and a main partition. That would be kt_5.0.0-kernel_diags.gz, kt_5.0.1-mmcblk0p2_diags+ssh.img.gz, kt_5.1.2-kernel_main.gz, and kt_5.1.2-mmcblk0p1-main.img.gz for your purpose.

Trust me, use these files. They work. I've done it dozens of times.

If the 5.3.2 is already jailbroken, yes. Otherwise you have to either jailbreak it, or downgrade to 5.1.2 (i.e. do the same as ivakuska).

It's unusual for developers to provide private chat assistance. (even for money)

For obvious reasons. We would be doing it all that time.

I think what you are saying is "A video would work better in all languages", now on this point I would tend to agree. However, since it does not exist. You don't specify a "location" in your Mobile Read "Profile" so I can't guess at a language that you might natively speak.

But honestly the guides are at least correct. if not easy to follow in all languages.

So perhaps a native <Your Language here> speaker could assist you more helpfully.

Also. I am guessing Windows as a platform (per your last comment) there are step by step guides with "pictures" on the debricking thread for that platform (If I recall correctly by Geekmaster)

Search there.

hi

It's a little bit difficult..
Maybe you can join together and make this video tutorial (if something depends by me I can give help). Thousands of people will apreciate this and will "worship"

Thx in advance
