ImCoSys show next book fair in Frankfurt (Germany) the updated Reader "imcoV6Lpro" with Android 4.x and 512 MB RAM too and this newer Reader Support newer apps.

If you jailbreak the Kindle, you can't install updates without undoing the jailbreak. Obviously, the code is no longer the same, so an update won't work.

Not really sure what to say about this, except:
  1. You're wrong.
  2. Read the FAQ, don't make things up.
  3. Not only can you still update, (which is the expected outcome when jailbreaking a device, so this isn't magically new Kindle-only stuff,) the update doesn't even wreck the jailbreak.

Interesting. The devices I've jailbroken or rooted have been Apple iOS (jailbreak) or Google Android (root). After updating, the best outcome was being able to use the same jailbreak/root exploit after the update. The more common result was having to wait until an update of the jailbreak/root code was released to work with the new update.

The only Kindle I saw that was jailbroken had it's bridge(?) surviving an update but the jailbreak could not be installed after the update (5.3.6?). It's been a while and I'm not a Kindle owner.

On the Kindle, /var/local/system/fixup is not overwritten by an update, and is sourced at boot. (As an emergency just-in-case Lab126 ever needs to use it I guess.) The bridge is that file. I don't know why Amazon doesn't work harder to invalidate jailbreaks, but I am happy.

Recent updates have fixed a longstanding exploit which allowed the original jailbreak. fw >= 5.4.5
