Both of these steps are required, and must be performed in that order.

This method works regardless of which jailbreak you installed (NiLuJe's one for 5.2.0, or ixtab's one for 5.2.0/5.3.X), and will also remove the rescue pack and jailbreak bridge (if installed).

It might leave behind a few files on the diags partition (leftovers from the rescue pack, if it was installed), but that's irrelevant because that partition isn't accessible on a non-jailbroken Kindle anyway.
Thanks a lot! I´m giving away my old non-3G PW, and want it to be as "normal" as possible.

The net result is that your Kindle will be just like a factory-fresh device - all modifications will be removed.

The procedure might leave behind a few files on the diags partition (leftovers from the rescue pack, if it was installed), but that's irrelevant because that partition isn't accessible on a non-jailbroken Kindle anyway.
Does this method also remove Kindlet jailbreak and JBPatch or should I rather first use the provided uninstallers?

I had this problem too. I spent quite a bit of time on the phone with Andrew; turns out they had to turn Special Offers off, on, then off again at their end to fix it; it had nothing to do with the jailbreak.

What made you think that the word all in the sentence "The net result is that your Kindle will be just like a factory-fresh device - all modifications will be removed." would not include JBPatch or Kindlet jailbreak?

I just wanted to confirm that if after the factory reset, you could directly apply a newer official firmware e.g. 5.3.3 (instead of 5.3.1) to still fully remove the jailbreak. Thank you, ~m

sorry, I don't think my question was clear: to uninstall jailbreak, after factory reset can you re-install any official firmware (e.g. 5.3.5 now), instead of 5.3.1?

Depends on your firmware version when you try to apply the jailbreak.

See the paperwhite jailbreak thread title, it does not apply to all versions of the firmware.

Your best bet is, just leave the jailbreak in-place and update to whatever firmware version you want to use.

Take note in the jailbreak thread those actions which are recommended after doing such an update.
