Some of the earlier Kpw Amazon images are "complete" firmware replacements.
  1. Get one of those -
  2. Install it per Amazon directions (a downgrade, but the image doesn't detect that) -
  3. Use the Amazon updates to "upgrade" to 5.3.5 -
  4. Now it is "factory clean" -
  5. If anything fails, just return to step 2 above.

[1. Complete "back-out" of all installed custom software] + 2. factory reset [+ 3. firmware downgrade]. Step 1 optional, not necessary if firmware is downgraded properly. Step 3, "nuke it from orbit, only way to be sure option" is best. But non-optional step 2, factory reset, that's a showstopper. I can't (for political reasons, meaning I share this Kindle with other people) clear all content.

If I installed 5.3.5 on my already jailbroken Kindle, will it remove the jailbreak?

No, but Collections Manager is likely broken, and JBPatch is broken.

Unless you didn't keep JBBridge installed. But it looks like the jailbreak method itself still works, so you can jailbreak again if necessary.

JBPatch installed without error, but just the framework working, the patches are not compatible.
Does this mean CM works but is wiped? Does this imply previously installed CM still works, but won't install new? Or, are CM and JBPatch unrelated?

I'm having a 40-something moment.

Both CM and JBPatch do not work on 5.3.5. They are unrelated, but both of them access some internal Kindle classes. And Amazon/Lab126 seem to absolutely love to obfuscate things again and again with every new firmware release. It's totally pointless, but it requires me to invest dozens of hours of stupid and boring work for every new firmware.

I just updated to 5.3.5 and now when I open Kindle Launcher it says Kindlet Jailbreak not installed and the screensavers hack has been removed.

Thanks!
When I updated to 5.3.5, the jailbreak got deleted. So, I had to install it again and I can say that the jailbreak works on FW 5.3.5.

We probably will for new releases. In the mean time, you can repackage them yourself by downloading kindletool and extracting, then repacking the .bins.

The Paperwhite is not running Android. You can't use Android applications on E-ink Kindles.
