I believe that I carefully followed instructions. I still get a greyed out option 'Update your kindle' even after cleanup + restart. Even after complete reset.

I got my PW2 today from Kentucky to Belgium. The last 4 characters of the SN are '0GLD'.

Can you please help? Thanks in advance!!
Please provide the **FIRST** four characters.

- - - -

From Kentucky?
Then the first four are probably 9017 and you should be using the packages from NiLuJe's snapshot thread.

@ledeze: last != first .

We need the *first* 4 characters of the SN, not the last .

EDIT: And, guess what? I missed a new page, once again. .

I guess I am really out to lunch... The first 4 digits are 9017.

BTW, I had purchased 2 Kindles together that arrived today. The second one was untouched yet. So I turn it ON, set it up, and found out that the option to 'Update Your Kindle' is greyed out, out of the box, meaning without even attempting to jailbreak it. The SN also starts with 9017.

Is there something with this batch? Or Belgium??

Many thanks for your assistance!!

It is always grayed out, unless there is an update on the device.

Just use the update from the snapshots.

Note:
No one has ever reported a warranty refusal with our applications installed.
When exchanged by Amazon, they ship the replacement **before** receiving the return device.
I.E: They don't have a chance to see yours before they replace it, even if they had time to look (they don't).
Ohh, that makes sense. Thanks for your help

I'm so sorry that i mistake the SN.
the SN is 9017 and the firmware is 5.4.5.1 .my kindle is bought in china。

I downgrade the fm to 5.4.3.2 and then use the packet in the snapshot .The "jailbreak" appears at the bottom of the screen .But when i tried to install KPVBooklet, the .bin file is deleted and the "Update Your Kindle" link stays grayed out.

so what should i do? is this kind of kindle's mechanism that it delete the .bin files copied in its root dir?

The packages on NiLuJe's snapshot thread are re-packaged for device 9017 - use those packages.
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=225030

Yes, it is a safety protection from installing a .bin file not intended for that model.
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=237083

Packages are both "model locked" and "digitally signed" -
Mis-match of model or bad signature - update file gets discarded.

Real quick clarification please:

After unzipping the kindle-5.4-jailbreak, there are 3 files in the folder: the .bin and 2 .sh files that read "bridge.sh" and "jb.sh"

Am I sappost to archive all 3 files or only the .bin????

Sorry if this question has already been answered but I couldn't find it in the 73 pages :/

In the first post of this thread -
In the section with the large, red letters: "Install" -
Open the spoiler, read and follow the directions.

@WorldofPain-
Sorry you read all 73 pages, you only needed to read the first post!
Yes, you place the contents of that zip file (all three files) into the root directory of your kindle...eject...restart via menu/settings/etc.

****I see I'm redundant once again...Good Morning @knc1 !!

5.4.5.1 wiped out my screensavers

My paperwhite was JB for the screensaver hack and had been working perfectly until today. It automatically updaded to 5.4.5.1 and the screensavers are back to the old ones. A little help?

Re-install the screensavers hack.

Updates wipe out all hacks. This is expected. The update contains a full system image of a vanilla firmware.

The jailbreak does not need to be re-installed.

All your settings will still be there.

Consider installing the "Backdoor Lock" also, will keep you from being surprised by 5.4.5.2
The Backdoor Lock does not require KUAL, but I recommend that you install KUAL (and its MKK requirement) -
KUAL makes a lot of things easier to control (screensavers, backdoor lock, etc).
