New Paperwhite woes :(

Hi All,

For christmas i treated myself to a new kindle paperwhite (v2) which is a replacement for an old non touch kindle running 4.1.

I had had jailbroken my old one and mainly used the wallpaper function. which was great.

I went to do this to my new kindle pw2 and i found that it had shipped with od 5.5.1 (unable to jailbreak) so i found and followed this article to downgrade the os LINK and once downgraded i followed this guide for jailbreaking. http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=186645

and then i followed this guide for setting up the wallpapers http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=195474

this all worked perfectly and thank you to NiLuJe for some well written guides.

however once i disabled airplane mode my kindle decided to perform an update on its own and is now on os 5.6.1. This has broken either the screensaver hack OR the jailbreak. I have tried re-installing links but it wont allow me to 'update kindle' from settings with the linkss .bin file on the root.

I have also tried running this update http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...postcount=1597 which does go through however on completion still doesnt allow me to update linkss or uninstall it.

to confirm it was jailbroken before the update

is there anything i can do to get this back to a working jailbroken state?

Thanks

Mondo

@Mondo100: Read the FW 5.6 section of the JB thread. (spoiler: use MRPI to install stuff).

What is MRPI, and which Jailbreak thread are you talking about?

JB thread
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=186645

I suggest you read all the info and cautions on both threads before proceeding and as NiLuJe suggested pay particular attention to the "FW 5.6 section" of the JB thread.

You're welcome. I try to help where I can. When I first came here I had a lot of questions (and still do). This is the best way I can give back.
