They are not working anymore, can't figure out why.
Have you had a firmware upgrade done to the machine OTA by Amazon?

Yes, before jailbreaking
Did the latest update eliminate those functions?

Sorry - Crystal Ball is off-line here - Can not see over your shoulder or channel into your mind.

What firmware version did you have before the ota update and what version do you have now?

How to find out if my Kindle PW2 was jailbroken?

I follow instruction, unpack the jailbreak to root folder of my PW2 (3 files), run an update and finally I got the '***** JAILBREAK *****' message on the bottom of the screen.
However when later on I closed my PW2 and opened it again the '***** JAILBREAK *****' message is not any-longer displayed within 'Settings' menu.

Because of that how can I check if my PW2 is jailbroken?

Correct, it was just a one-time confirmation message.

It is,
only some of the firmware updates from Amazon will un-jailbreak it.

I believe you but is there any way to check it?

Folder structure (when connected via usb) seems to be exactly the same (I did not have yet USBNetwork installed)

Can jailbreak add "contrast" and "landscape view" features in web browser mode (PW2 5.4.3)? I think these two missing features can be very useful. contrast in browser is set to be normal and there is no option to increase it.

Try to run a hack.

The jailbreak does nothing but install one file, an update verification certificate, to the hidden KindleOS partition, allowing other stuff to be used which DO have noticeable effects.

More specifically, try to install one of our MR packages.
If the added certificate is no longer present, you will not be allowed to run the "Update Your Kindle" in the settings menu.

(Make sure you are trying a package intended for your kindle model, they are both "model locked" and "signed". Here you just want to check the "signed" portion of the requirements.)

Read the directions in the first post of each of those threads.

That includes opening any "spoilers" and reading them.
