Not sure I've done this right. Tried the jailbreak but nothing really happened.

Recap: After looking over several root guides I landed on this page. I downloaded the jailbreak zip, followed instructions. I extracted only the files inside kindle-5.4-jailbreak.zip (nothing else) to root of device as stated, unplugged and ran the update. It reads ***Jailbreaking*** at bottom indefinitely until I tapped this message, after which the message just disappeared. Everything works, I just have feeling nothing changed.

Device:
Paperwhite 2 (series B017, 9017)

I'm on:
update 5.4.3.2

Using JB from:

Perfectly normal.

We had to delete the drumroll, the twenty-one cannon salute, etc from the paperwhite edition due to lack of audio support.

That's all you get, a message, once.

Hello all!

Been a while, just wondered if anyone could give me a good place to get started with writing a KUAL compatible program... Thanks!

Will.

How to write a KUAL extension: KUAL_What's_New

KUAL is just a launcher, you shove executables and bash scripts in a standard edition folder, must be compatible with the Kindle OS, and KUAL makes pretty buttons for executing commands in menu.json (like actually running those pretty bash scripts/executables).

@eschwartz

Thanks for your answer. I'm just gonna come right out and show my complete ignorance here... *shuffles feet foolishly* What are the binary files? Graphical Unix Executables?! ;-)

Don't tell me it's just Java with the extension knocked off...

Will.

You could use Java... Kindlets (like KUAL itself) are java applets.

More common to compile unix executables. At least, most of the stuff I have installed.

(kterm, skipstone, leafpad, midori, screen savers, usbnetwork. Plus the helper bash scripts. And Collections Manager kindlet, with a bash launcher through KUAL.)

Your not the first to wonder: "Did it do anything at all?"

It is what is known in C.S. as a "Poison Filename" -
The actual filename itself does the deed and its done.

Subtlety hates novices.

... so basically with the jailbreak I was looking to widen the margins across my content. I'm reading the JBPatch does not apply to the PW2. Anything else would do fine by me, maybe I'm not finding the right links? Dunno, I've been proceeding with extreme caution, as I don't want to harm this nice puppy.

Can't Jailbreak

Hi

My paperwhite2 is bought several days ago,and the serial num starts with 9071,i followed the guide copying the three files into root directory, but after eject,I found the update is still gray and when plugging in,the .bin file was deleted.I think maybe this is the issue of newest paperwhite.please help!!!
