I'm not smart enough to remove jailbreak 3.4

Hi all. I have a Kindle 3G US that I absolutely must permanently remove the jailbreak from. To cut the story short, I used Kubrick, and now I have a jailbroken K3G with fw 3.4.

I am not able to find a definitive guide to uninstalling the jailbreak, nor can I find which manual _uninstall.bin to use, if any.

Not removing it is NOT an option.

Thanks, guys.

First off, care to explain why you absolutely must remove the jailbreak and not removing it is NOT an option? Please? It's only one innocent little text file, why do you loathe it so much?

That said: the plain, standard, normal uninstaller that you can get here should work.

Thank you very much for your quick attention. The short answer to your query is: politics. I wish to pass this device on to someone who will not accept it if it is any way not "legit". Also, I made a promise that I wish to keep. Myself, I would not be so concerned; indeed, my K4, K5T, and PW are all jailbroken.

Thank you for an answer on this new thread. I thought that I might be asking a question which has been answered too many times already. However, the answers that I found only applied to previous FWs and jailbreak methods.

You guys are great!

I should note that I ran Reset to Factory Defaults after rebooting from Kubrick.

I tried updating with update_jailbreak_0.11.N_k3gb_uninstall.bin. The logs contained a message to the effect of "update failed, signature invalid".

Does that mean the jailbreak that was present after Kubrick was screwed up by the reset to factory? Or did I fail to understand what I was supposed to do?

Do I need to do anything now?

Are you sure you used the correct uninstaller? The K3 .bins are different for different serial numbers. I *think* you should be using the k3g one, not the k3gb, but I may be wrong. Only you can tell.

Code:
ixtab@mbp:/tmp/un$ grep k3gb *
README.txt:(As always, k2 means K2 US, k2i means K2 GW, dx means KDX US, dxi means KDX GW, dxg means KDX Graphite, k3g means K3 3G (US [B006]), k3w means K3 WiFi [B008], k3gb means K3 3G (UK [B00A]) and k4 means K4 [B00E]. The ones suffixed by -3.0-to-3.2 are meant for devices running old FW <= 3.2 *only*!).

You are correct. Trying again with the correct one got the same message, "signature verification failed". Should I worry about this, or should I consider it sufficient? Since I can't run this update, I can't run any, and thus, it isn't jailbroken?

It would be nice, but not essential, to remove all files and data not from "official" source, meaning Amazon.

Again, thanks for all you are doing for me and everyone.

yeah. what you said.

Hey, it's one file. itty bitty file. miniscule.
And the OP? who doesn't want it to be "illegitimate", assuming that no custom updates would ever be run.... it wouldn't matter either way.

There seems to be a confusion between "Jailbreaking" and "rooting", frankly this is more "rooting" than anything else. Harmless allowance of custom - in the main: open-source - softwares to be installed.

Just don't use it?

But as you said, seems like you can't anyways. So... as they used to say in Atlantic City

"Forget about it"

Which you can no longer do, since the un-installers are all signed packages also.
They have to have the certificate in-place to run.

I.E: Removing the certificate is the **very last** thing to remove.

The factory reset broke the jb. You'll need to reinstall it to be able to uninstall it.

(The FW 3.x jb is a tiny bit more complex than what we use on 4/5.x, and there is indeed a bit of leftover stuff, besides the pubkey).

Thinking on.... I knew that.
Either way. It's no longer "jailbroken."

Thanks. This is what I figured.

I will remember, if there is a next time, to do the factory reset first, before the jailbreak/Kubrick, or last, after removing the jailbreak, not during. And I won't fret too much about the jailbreak anyway.

And thanks for all your advice. Everyone here are really nice guys.

Okay. I installed the jailbreak from 0.11.N, which went smoothly, then uninstalled it, which worked perfectly. I assume I'm done with it now? No more to worry about? Good. Now I can leave you alone.

Just don't travel West.
The Chinese have sold New Mexico to Amazon.
(New Mexico isn't a good location for new Rice patties, but a great source of finely ground silicon.)

On a tangential note: It may interest some of you that when I prepared to perform a "cleaning" of a K4, when I deregistered the device, a notice appeared on the home screen saying that my Kindle was no longer a test Kindle.

Test Kindle Installation Result.azw


Also, It may be worth noting that Amazon has released version 5.3.8 for the PW yesterday, in case you didn't know.
