@Doitsu: A registration status change ((re|un)register) *might* also have screwed it up, not quite sure about that one, but I added it to the first post, just in case.

I didn't change the registration info either.

Restarting the device didn't have any effect either. :-(
Maybe it's a model-specific issue. The serial number of my PW2 starts with 90D4.

@rupor: What are the first 4 characters of the serial number of your PW2?

@Doitsu: It's as model-specific as the rest of the JB, and always in sync, so, probably not (plus, that's the most common PW2 variant). When was your device last jailbroken, and with which (exact, if possible) version of the JB?

It was only once jailbroken about 6 weeks ago using the latest PW2 JB version available at the time (kindle-5.4-jailbreak.zip).
(The date of the files in the folder is 04/11/2014.)

BTW, I can live without the JB; I installed a couple of kindlets, but hardly used them. The feature I'm going to miss the most is the font override, but this is only a cosmetic thing that doesn't affect the functionality.

EDIT:
After downgrading to 5.4.3.2, I was able to re-install the jailbreak, which survived a subsequent 5.4.5 update.

@Doitsu: That's the latest stable release, so, yeah, nothing wonky with it. Strange. Chalk this one up to gremlins :/.

@NiLuJe

Do you know if there is a 'hostapd' binary compatible with the PW?

Will.

Just wanted to confirm. I updated JBroken Kindle(previous fw) to 5.4.5. Only had to install Mobileread Kindlet Kit and screensaver Hack to have them working again. As well as Kual.
