How to jailbreak 5.6.1.0.4 for screensaver

This forum help me to get screensaver last time for kindle 4. Thanks you for that.

Today I got my new kindle paperwhite 2 that have 5.6.1.0.4. Actually it's come with 5.4 something but I updated it. Later people tell me that it's can't be downgraded (something).

I don't want to do anything except Screensaver so I can put my own images. Do someone know how I can put screensaver on it.

I tried to run kual but it's told me "This test kindle is not authorized". something I search and come back to this forum.

Do someone know how I can get screensaver on it.

To use the Sreensaver hack, your kindle needs to be jailbroken. If you did not apply the jailbreak before updating to firmware >5.6.0, then you are out of luck. Also you can not downgrade anymore. Sorry.

(if you are really handy, it appears you can apply the jailbreak to >5.6.0 by opening your kindle up physically and soldering a serial cable directly to the board for direct access but that is beyond me)

basicly its not that difficult to jailbreak manually.

here is my Way to a jailbroken Kindle:
serial Jailbraik FW 5.6.1 step by step

I bought my own last month .. so if you bought it with the special offer, than your screensaver contains advertising and the normal screensaverhack won't work
