Is it possible to install Duokan on a new Kindle Paperwhite with firmware 5.6.x? No jailbreak.

They evidently don't support Duokan installation over the serial port.
See the links I posted above (and if you read Chinese, give us a link to the directions for manual Duokan installation if you find them).

Google translate does, and the last link to their jb status report is via google translate.
Google translate will follow your clicking of pages at miui.com

Here it is again, if I didn't break it:

That seems a rather convoluted way to shoot yourself in the foot, but thanks for the report anyway.

Sorry, you're misreading me. On K3G I successfully installed Duokan ON TOP of the latest NiLuJe jailbreak. The only thing I had to remove was the SS hack - and even that proved to be overkill, because in the end the conflict was caused specifically by cover mode - probably its activity during boot. I could just switch it to basic mode and not touch anything else in my installation. In fact, the cover mode doesn't even prevent Duokan from installing - just from booting. So, you could have jailbreak, SS hack, keys pack, KUAL, launchpad, everything, then install Duokan through KUAL, and the only thing needed to run it after that is to disable SS cover mode.

@Artik: Huh. That's... weird, cover mode isn't doing much more at boot than what the SS hack does without. On the other hand, I have no idea how Duokan hooks into the boot process on legacy FWs, so, who knows ;p.

Meanwhile, on the Asian Jailbreak development front:

[...]


If I understand the translated post - to show that we have packages working for 5.6.x
Plus a complaint that the MR Installer thread does not include a 5.6.x software jailbreak.
(shame on you NiLuJe)
Which is getting a little bit more blatant than usual, even for Doukan.

[...]

I am in no hurry to make the serial port jailbreak process easier for those without soldering skills.

Hi,
I have PW2 v.5.6.1
Is it possible to downgrade it to V 4.3 for example in order to install a duokan?

Thank you

No.

That attempt would show error code 12 ("Downgrade Attack" - Lab126's name for it).

Keep in mind it is possible to manually reflash the partition images by rebooting into diags mode -- see: http://ixtab.tk/kindle-touch-images/PW2/

That is a rather extreme solution, also you still need to be previously jailbroken.

Probably easier to install KOReader.
