Update to 5.3.7.1 with JB

Hi there!
I need a small information, I have a Kindle Touch updated to 5.3.7 with JB installed a couple of months ago, Kindlet Kit and KUAL (which I actually use only for the screensaver hack).

My doubt is related to the new update: how can I proceed to update my KindleT and keep the JB/hacks?

Should I remove all of these stuff, update the K5 and reinstall them (is it possible to do that?) or can I just freely update it from here and nothing will be removed?

Not on the right box to check it out, but at best, it's a >= 5.3.x update, so it'll wipe everything hack-related, check the FAQs in the JB & MKK thread.

TL;DR: Might want to hold on for a bit, unless you're feeling adventurous.

I updated my KT from 5.3.7 to 5.3.7.1 and after finishing it jailbroke itself automagically. The kindlet jaibreak was gone though.

PS: Great work on making the jaibreak persistent, to anyone involved in it!

So I can just update my Kindle and then reapply the kindlet JB?

EDIT:

Just did it, everything worked great! ^^

1) Updated KindleTouch from 5.3.7 to 5.3.7.1 (.bin file, OTA wasn't showing any update)
2) It automatically did the JB after the update
3) Kindlet JB was broken, so I reinstalled MKK (it was also a new version, so took the chance to update it)
3b) KUAL was working, but I had an old version so I updated it too
4) Screensaver hack wasn't working, so I just reinstalled (actually, new version here too!) python + linkss and after the reboot everything was working great!
