Released v1.6.N, with dsmid's changes (thanks!)

That means there's no longer two set of install instructions, and it's a bit safer/faster for everyone .

(@dsmid: Could you check if I missed something? I think I got everything you tweaked, and updated the docs accordingly, and it works on my 4.1 device, but one more pair of eyes can't hurt... ).

I reviewed the changes (all seems to be correct) and even tried to install the jailbreak and everything went OK.
No issues at all, the spinner looks nice.

@dsmid: Thanks for checking!

Also, next time I get an idea, like 'hey, the 10s countdown is nice, but wouldn't a spinner look neater?', remind me to check if eips can actually *print* all the characters needed for a spinner *before* going ahead and writing^Wstealing one... (It can't print backslashes, hence the ugly X in place of \).

Help!!!

just tried to do the jailbreak using the zip above, on my kindle touch. firmware 5.1.2

I went thru the 6 steps ok, but did NOT see the 'You are jailbroken' book in the kindle, then somehow I restarted it, and now it is LOCKED on the Diagnostic screen, it wont responde at all. It's a brick!

... and exactly why did you follow the instructions for the Kindle 4, when you have a Kindle 5? Next time, inform yourself before doing things.

home -> menu -> settings -> menu <<-- that menu
If update is grayed out - you don't have the correct update file or it is in the wrong place.

If none of the above helps, contact Amazon to have the Special Offers removed.

Note: KUBRICK will let you re-install the Amazon OS
It will not distrub the SO function - you may still have to contact Amazon to have those removed.

Well. you are out of luck there then. He hasn't been around for a while now.

Here's a thought. : You didn't do it right.

"Kubrick" it and be done with your worries. That will do the work.

Easy job. 15 mins at worst.

Hold your horses, this jailbreak doesn't install anything to user store.
So it's perfectly OK if you can't find the linkjail folder.

A salient point

Perhaps simply testing if you can install some user content would be a pertinent test.
