I'd like to know too! Flip's English Duokan works beautifully(esp if you wanna get rid of the ads, lol),
but I was wanting to try some of the GUI plugins that require jailbreaking.
TIA

Tried installing the latest Duokan, with the new Kindle 3.2.1 update, I'm getting an "update unsuccessful" U004 error.

I had the latest english Duokan installed and then ran the jailbreak on 3.2.
It worked fine, but Duokan wouldn't work anymore so I tried to re-install it and kept erroring U007. I learned that Duokan and the JB didn't play well together.

I went ahead and installed the ScrSaver hack (which didn't work, of course) and installed FBreader(which works nicely). Lastly installed the TTS mod(now I get British TTS). I then got Duokan back, by just installing DKLite Mod.(worked fine)

Only trouble now is I no longer get the Special Offer ads. Instead of banners, I get "Connect the wireless to update Special Offers". I connect and surf the store, but no updates.

Brand new "with Special Offers" Kindle 3 Wifi (B008). Shipped with FW 3.2.1 (576290015).

kindle-jailbreak-0.7.N.zip -> update_jailbreak_0.7.N_k3w_install.bin results in U004. It is unclear to me whether or not this is normal or unexpected? (believe that this indicates an unexpected failure).

kindle-usbnetwork-0.33.N.zip -> update_usbnetwork_0.33.N_k3w_install.bin results in error U007. The lack of a /usbnet directory makes me think this didn't take.

Can anyone confirm/deny that the jailbreak work/doesn't work?

Sorry, I was asking whether or not the 0.7 Jailbreak is reported to work with K3SO running 3.2.1.

My attempt seems to have not worked.

it seems like the latest version of duokan *which you can download here http://www.duokan.com/forum/thread-2208-1-1.html* works with the 3.2 firmware...
It's probably all in chinese though (haven't tried it yet)

I had the Kuokan Chinese version dated 0422 installed on my Kindle3SO FW 3.2.1 for a month and worked great. Until I tried to make it faster switching between the two OS by installing Jailbreak. I failed all hack installation. Tried three different hacks all failed. Then tried to go back to Kuokan. Guess what, Kuokan won't install. I am stuck with no good Chinese support. Why!!!! Why did I try to be brave? Why?
Can anyone help?

BTW, WhiteCable you maybe in the same boat as me. Read more before try anything more.

My guess is that FW 3.2 allows JB and Duokan, but 3.2.1 won't.

All the hacks I installed on 3.2 still work on 3.2.1(although I no longer get special offers), but the hacks probably won't re-install if I factory-reset it.

Same issue with K3W (ad-free)

I'm in the same boat with a Kindle 3 Wifi (ad-free version). Mine shipped with 3.2.1, and the latest YiFanLu jailbreak fails to install. I'd love to customize my fonts, so if anyone figures this out please share!

Also, first post! Hi everyone!
