Kindle 3 Jailbreak 101
I've done a search on this forum for an answer to my question but doesn't seem to be any concrete info....so sorry if I missed it being asked else where
So I decided to purchase and Amazon Kindle 3 (3G + Wifi) a few hours ago and it should be here next week some time. I bought it just to read some pdf's I have but after reading and watching various videos I see it's possible to jailbreak the Kindle 3.
1. So as a brand new Kindle 3 (3G + Wifi), what stock firmware would be on it?
2. If 3.1 would the jailbreak by yifanlu be the one for me?
3. What interesting things are possible with the jailbreak besides Font and ScreenSavers?
4. Do you need to Jailbreak to remove DRM from certain books?
5. For DRM removal would I use the latest version of skindle-06?
Sorry if these simple/stupid questions offend you. Thanks for the advice! Appreciate it

Yes, the YifanLu jailbreak would be the one to use. The screensaver hack is still the older or original (although updated) in that thread. You need to look over the developer subforum for other hacks.
You do not need jailbreak to strip drm - that is entirely processed on a computer. For drm removal we are not permitted to discuss details that could get this board in trouble. We may mention: Google Apprentice Alf's blog and then look for tools. Which I just noticed is up to version 3.7 (Hey, everybody - 3.7)
Oh, the firmware version will probably depend on what stock/inventory yours is shipped from. Some folks have gotten 3.1 on their new units from what I read.
