[SOLVED] Kindle touch, small question about upgrading to 5.1

Hi there,

Two days ago, I got a new "Kindle touch Special Offers" for my birthday.

I wanted custom screensavers, so I did the jailbreak, removed ads, installed the screensaver hack. Works great.

Today I saw that there is already version 5.1 available, yet my Kindle still has 5.0.1. Because I would like to use the landscape format for PDFs I want to upgrade.

1. Do I have to remove all those hacks first and remove the jailbreak before upgrading? Do I have to enable ads before upgrading?
2. Will those hacks also work under the newest firmware version?

Thank you very much
---------------------

edit: Thank you, worked great!

1. yes, remove the hacks, but do not remove the jailbreak. You don't need to enable ads before upgrading.
2. most of them yes, but for the screensaver hack, only the "simple one" works on 5.1.0. Search this forum for more info
