In particular - follow along until the point where the new (KUAL) launcher is working.

And not to worry if it all goes wrong, you can always re-install the Amazon 5.3.1 image and try again.
Thank you

Unfortunatelly when i try that.. i get error 007 so i cannot proceed. Anyone has any idea? I don't care about screensavers now.. just wanna do the update :/ .

Edit: .. So i tried to reflash it .. following Small debricking guide for “noobs” and its back to normal!! Also did jailbreak 1.7N with update 5.3.2.

Thanks to all of you guys ;-)
so you jailbreaked it after it had updated to 5.3.2??how can u make it??i followed the readme and use both the data.tar.gz and data.stgz...but it just didn't work.

Correct, that does not work.
The poster did the jailbreak before the upgrade, try it that way.

"knc1" is correct, sorry for misunderstanding.. So this is what I did .. I refleshed it to 5.0.0 then update to 5.1.0 then jailbreak 1.7N with usbnet 0.7N and finally update 5.3.2

I am new to this forum. I have jail broken my Kindle Paperwhite and put usbnet on it. I can telnet to the kindle, but the connection only lasts for a few seconds. I have not yet succesfully ssh'd to the kindle (I am using openssh and it always asks for a password even with keys in place). So, my question is, why am I losing the connection? The firmware version is 5.3.3. I am connecting through usb from my desktop running Fedora 17. Thanks.

Bad cable ?
Bad USB port?

I have learned that I can issue this command as root on my desktop machine

More info - I now see that my network info is being lost. After I lose the connection if I run

I see that the inet address is gone. Only the inet6 address remains. So something in the Fedora system is undoing the

If that command fixes your problems, then they (=the problems) most probably originate from your OS, not from the Kindle.

Let the Kindle sit for a while and watch the output of /var/log/syslog (and post the relevant parts here )


e.g. (for Ubuntu, not sure about Fedora, but it's probably the same)
Code:
sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog

I got the problem sorted out by editting the usb0 network interface with the Fedora supplied tools rather than ifconfig. I suspect the problem resulted from DHCP still being set for the usb0 interface rather than manual ip configuraion.

What I really want to do is to use the KPW as a display for my arduino. I use gnu screen to interface to the arduino. Is there a terminal program and gnu screen for the KPW?

Install KUAL launcher
Install kTerm

You need to install the device jailbreak before updating to v-5.3.3 -
If already at v-5.3.3, then just install the Amazon v-5.3.1 image - it can't tell that it is doing a downgrade.

More hints here:

I don't think there is a KUAL button for it (yet) - -
Search the forum -
I am pretty sure it has already been built (at least for something).

Update: I had given up looking and decided to compile screen for myself. Then I found this

The extra binaries are at the bottom of the page. I wish I had found it earlier.

Why don't you add that to the Prefix_Index pages and save someone else the same grief?
