The rescue pack and SS hack *should* be completely orthogonal (= they touch entirely different files), but yeah... who knows. Thanks for the info!

sure - wrong file and/or wrong machine.

your info block says you have a K5-Paperwhite rather than a K5-Touch.

did you jailbreak your Kindle?

(BTW: you can install rescue pack via the jailbreak since jailbreak update file includes the rescue pack.
therefore just install the jailbreak (again, if already)
)

The latest version of the jailbreak file should be attached to the first post in this thread, and dated, but when I downloaded it it said it was for firmware version 5.3.4 and I have version 5.3.5 on my paperwhite. Also, if the links for updating the certificates and the rescue pack are not for use with the paperwhite what are they doing in the thread for the paperwhite jailbreak? I'm getting really sick of this!

Ah, no -
They are attached to the first post of the Paperwhite jailbreak thread.

Get the most recent files from the Paperwhite jailbreak thread, try them, if they don't work, then downgrade you Kpw to a firmware version they do work on - complete the jailbreak, then update to whatever newer version you want to run.

I get confused about which thread I'm on, and somehow thought I was on the Jailbreak thread. Anyway I tried downloading the zip file that's attached to the Jailbreak thread and it has this "README" note:

Quote:
Kindle Paperwhite Jailbreak for versions 5.2.0, 5.3.0, 5.3.1, 5.3.4
================================================== =================

This is a jailbreak for the Kindle Paperwhite.
It does NOT work on other Kindle models, and it does not work
on firmware 5.3.3.

Simply follow the instructions in this file to unlock the full
potential of your Paperwhite! ;-)
So, it isn't the one for 5.3.5 even though the note at the top of that thread says that this Jailbreak works for 5.3.5. I installed the Jailbreak back on version 5.3.1 and I've updated it as recently April, 2013. But every time there's an update I dread it, because I have to go back and find the right files to re-install and do them in the right order. So, I guess this is the same version that I installed back in April?

I also can't find the latest version of the Collections manager, or the files that I need to get that to work. They seem to be scattered all over the place. I tried updating using the files I could find (which in most cases I already had) but now the Collections Manager is dead as a doornail. Plus, it never worked very well anyway. Very clunking and laborious to get the books moved to the right sub-collections, and then it all stops working as soon as there's a firmware update. Sorry, but this is all a complete distraction. I'd much rather just read books than diddle around with these hacks.

Have you actually tried the file, on the chance the read-me wasn't updated?

Perhaps you should try it rather than waste time venting.

Nobody is forcing you to use these Kindle add-ons, if you don't like them, don't use them.
It isn't like you had to purchase these at the app store.

You make a rescue pack for the PW2?
Or this version will work?

I'll take a look at it once I get my PW2. In the mean time, you can try it out by manually running the jailbreak.sh from my PW jailbreak, and checking whether the rescue pack gets installed correctly, and whether it works correctly. You can't use the .bin from this thread because it isn't packaged for the PW2.
