Several.
Check the KUAL thread for:

Rescue Packs (diags) installation failed

Hi!
I have Paperwhite with Frimware 5.3.6, so before jailbreaking I downgraded it to 5.3.1, and then used the kpw_jb.zip to jailbreak.
During jailbreak the Rescue Packs (diags) failed to install, then I got a message
that jailbreak had failed, and finally - "Jailbreak succeeded =)"
Log sais following:
Installing rescue packs (main) ...
OK
Installing rescue pack (diags) ...
FAILED
Backed up diags passwords to /etc/shadow.before_rescue_pack on diags partition
Unable to mount diags partition
OK
CLEANING UP
JAILBREAK FAILED
...
and then please check log and jailbreak succeeded.
Question: what could have gone wrong? what's the diags part responsible for?
And finally, what should I do?

The jailbreak executable accidentally ran twice concurrently, where the first instance worked correctly, and the second didn't. This rarely happens, but it does happen. If you check the log, you will see that everything got logged twice, but possibly with different outcome. That's "normal", because the second executable couldn't e.g. access the diags partition while the first one was writing to it.

Don't worry about it - the jailbreak succeeded.

PS: moved post into the jailbreak thread.

Thanks! How do I check it then?

Yeah, log really did write everything twice. How did you recognize it? Magician?
I'm glad everything went well, thanks for the jailbreak!
Still, how do I check that the rescue pack installed right? I don't really want to break my Kindle, but checking would be just perfect =))

Sure!

Seriously... because it happened before, and because the excerpts from your logfile were just showing the same pattern.

Well, if you know how to get out of diags mode again, you can simply create an ENABLE_DIAGS file and reboot.

Other than that - I can assure you that it worked. But to be extra sure, just run the jailbreak installer again. The issue that you experienced is rare, so my guess is that it will work just fine this time.

I don't know how to get out of diags mode, but I'd like to try it!
Really, reinstalling the jailbreak is not as much fun as trying diags mode - I've never seen it before

Found a way to exit diags mode on the very first page =)
Thanks again, I'll go play with diags mode!

I am hoping that since you seem to have such a great knowledge base that you can help me.
I cannot email any of my ebooks from calibre to my kindle white. I could at first but now it is not working.
My other problem is that when I try to transfer using the device tab it will only allow me to have one transferred book. If I add another one it takes away the first one.
Please help me

@bennio0993: Well thank you for the kind words... but that question is totally off-topic in this thread, and even in this forum. And I have absolutely no idea.

You seem to be having an issue with calibre. Please ask your question in a relevant forum -- in this case, most probably the calibre forum. Make sure to ask your question in a relevant thread, or if you don't find one, open a new thread.

It's much more likely that you get helpful responses if you ask in the right place.

Hi does this JailBreak work with all region-variant Kindle PaperWhite? I'm in China with a Kindle PaperWhite bought from amazon.cn, the device upgrades to 5.3.6 automatically after I register it (I forgot to enter airplane mode...)

So I'm planning to get the 5.3.5 firmware and downgrade the device, then apply the JailBreak patch. Are the files (both the 5.3.5 firmware and the kpw_jb.zip file in the OP) compatible with my China version Kindle PaperWhite?

And could you post the checksum of the file update_kindle_5.3.5.bin? I downloaded it and the MD5 sum is:
b1b4b304fa0751c9b00f826a10af2e6f update_kindle_5.3.5.bin

Thanks.

Short answer: Yes, if 'update kindle' button is not grayed out

Longer answer:
This update_*_.bin file is "Model Locked" it will not install on a model that it is not intended to install on.

Post the first four characters of your device's serial number and the author of this package can tell you if it is included.

The 5.3.5 firmware is from Amazon.
Unless they screwed up, the answer is: yes.

The messages of the jailbreak (written here) are probably English only.
But if the conditions of the above answer are met, the answer is: yes.

That would be up to the author.

But continue even if you don't have the checksum to compare with that of the downloaded file.
These update_*_.bin files are internally checksummed and cryptographically signed.

The cryptographic signature on the package will fail if a single bit is disturbed in the download process and the installer will exit with an error message immediately.

Support for the above is the reason why you have to do the device jailbreak first before using any of our packages, that installs our certificate into the pool along with the existing Amazon certificates.

@knc1: Actually, the 'full' (recoveryv2) updates for the PW are locked to the platform ID, and those for the Touch are locked to the platform+board ID, so unless the device is seriously messed up, there's little chance it wouldn't run (for a model mismatch reason, at least ).

@zeroxia: As knc1 said, we'd need the first four letters of your S/N to make sure *our* stuff is okay, but at least for the offical updates, there shouldn't be any issue .

FWIW, the checksum does match, but knc1 is right, it would have aborted if it was corrupted anyway .

Translation: You are actually downloading the file from Amazon, not from my server. The downloads would generate way too much traffic if I served them directly. (But yes, the files are mirrored there. Just in case some of the "official" download locations go down in the future).
