"How" as in what steps you took, commands used, destinations of files, etc.
Like in: Details please.
1. JailBreak
2. pasted update_fonthack_0.4_pw2_install.bin and ReaderSDK-impl-en_GB.jar in root
3. update in setting menu
Can you explain what happened?

Hello,

I am trying to jailbreak your phone on my Paperwhite 2 using these instructions.

After extracting kindle-5.4-jailbreak.zip to the root directory and updating it, my update your Kindle button is grayed out.

Can anyone help? It was at firmware 5.4.2.1

Thank you.

@sickopuppie: Unplug the toaster first.

SCNR.

More to the point, and provided the jumble of devices you alluded to is a mistake, check the FAQ in the first post, that exact issue is covered in detail in it.

I just jailbroke my Paperwhite (Firmware 5.3.9) to put in some new screensavers and I don't have a linkss/screensavers folder. I searched through the thread and couldn't find an answer. Does anyone know how to solve this?

@Nilmandir: Yup, you're in the JailBreak thread. JB ≠ ScreenSavers hack .

Check the dedicated thread.

Just reinstalled the jailbreak to my kindle touch and it worked flawlessly, thank you. It stopped working after that blasted infamous update 5.3.4 i think it was.. Also got the font hack to work again too.

If you *do* find your model in that list, see the next answer .
I just got my new kindle in the mail.
It is a 3G PW2.
It was purchased and shipped to and from Canada.
The first four characters of its serial number are B0D6.

@WilfordGrimley: I just updated the snapshots. They should now handle your device.

I'll update the 'stable' releases later this month.

@MarYo'lka: What folders? The K5 JB doesn't install anything user-visible.

@MarYo'lka: Those have nothing to do with the JailBreak. Just reinstall the corresponding hacks (Python, KUAL, whatever KUAL extensions you might have installed, and the ScreenSavers hack).
