@CapnGoat:

Barring that, this emergency script should restore stuff to a somewhat sane state.

But given the fact that this should never had happened in the first place, I really, really recommend to check/audit stuff over SSH.

That's... bad. But nicely explains why it's utterly broken .

Basically, you need to restore the default /etc/uks folder.
I know exactly what happened.

As mentioned in the beginning, I read this article. Somewhere at the end Liraz mentioned a way to prevent Amazon to autoupdate the Kindle software by moving/renaming /etc/uks to /etc/uks.disabled. I thought an autoupdate might mess with the jailbreak that I just installed and decided to do just that. Rereading his article it seems he was merely paranoid about Amazon misusing its power.

After I discovered that my jailbreak disabled my 3G connectivity I uninstalled the jailbreak - or so I thought. This whole thread shows me that my initial uninstallation of the jailbreak apparently failed but somehow restored my 3G. It failed because I never renamed the /etc/uks.disabled folder back to /etc/uks.

I don't have an explanation why my 3G worked again but I think I would've fixed this whole issue a long time ago if it hadn't worked.

With this I was finally able to install 3.4 and the uninstallation of both the USBNetwork hack and the jailbreak itself succeeded.

Thank you krzyk, Helgetus, dwig and NiLuJe, for taking your time for my issue and solving my problem. The next time I try to jailbreak something I will take more time to read everything very carefully and if I then decide that I want to undo the jailbreak I will take twice the time to read everything very carefully.

Liraz patched Luigi's kiterm to make it work in full screen.

Luigi Rizzo wrote a standalone Kindle terminal you can use from within the device. I used a slightly patched version that works full screen.

It hasn't been packaged into a Kindle *.bin file yet but installation was relatively straightforward thanks to a nice tutorial on TinyApps.

The short version:
  1. extract the zip file to /mnt/us/kiterm
  2. create an init script to launch it on startup:
    Code:
    cat>/etc/init.d/kiterm<<'EOF'
    #! /bin/sh
    # /etc/init.d/kiterm
    case "$1" in
    [...]
  3. reboot the Kindle (Menu > Settings > Menu > Restart)

Hello everyone!

I have same trouble, but i do one stupid thing when update 3.4 won't install. I do reset... After that i can't register my kindle.
Once I type my login and password and click submit, registration window is just hide and nothing was happens.

I try to unbrick and sucesfull downgrade (with ATK Advanced ToolKit) my kindle to 3.3
It doesn't work.

I check file system MD5:
"error - /etc/uks/pubprodkey01.pem 00cdf09ffae3e6eeb7ad62f0b27fc667 7130ce39bb3596c5067cabb377c7a9ed"

Strange thing is - after that I install usbNetwork hack, get file from another kindle (with right checksum: 00cdf09ffae3e6eeb7ad62f0b27fc667) and replace it, but when I re-run check script and get same error.

So... i don't know what to do, please help me and sorry for my totally lame english.

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/19039103/checkmd5.log
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/19039103/jb_emergency.log

Maybe it help to find out that exactly wrong with my device.

I've been unable to update to 3.04.
The following is in my log (see below):
Any ideas how to fix? Thought I uninstalled all the hacks, screensavers, fonts, jailbreaks but apparently something did not work.

Thanks!

ota_install: C defatchatchinfo="/usr/var/cache/fontconfig/f394b45e7a2716944ea2c0aeb5c008aa-arm.cache-2"atch failure

121026:012239 system: I S50updater:defeleting OTA bundle file "/mnt/us/Update_kindle_3.4_B006.bin"

Edit: solved by finding patch in old backup file on my laptop and installing this on the kindle

I am happy with my hacked Kindle 3.3 - I see it as holy.

I can choose any font with cool reader, I am not going to update because they have added a serif font, I can also choose fun fonts like:

http://www.dafont.com/old-typewriter.font

I have got over a hundred fonts I can choose from installed already.

@NiLuJe

Seems I have a almost the same issue.
I have k3 wi-fi keyboard ver. 3.2.1. And after deleting almost all data from /usbnetwork folder and following "reset to default config" I have no possibility to install new firmware (error U007) or another update/hack.
Usbnet-hack uninstall wasn't really successfull due to fact, that after ~help there is still ~usbnetwork in the list.
System contents and folders not viewable and not accessable. Jailbreak uninstall had no success, I guess. Device is not reachable via network (there're no echo-replies and telnet x.x.x.x 22 is not working as well)...

I know, that I need to recovery all data and folders...Unfortunately, I can't write shell-script for this due to lack of knowledge in shell...

BTW, your first script emergency.sh didn't create log file.. Strange...But, I have dump file just from kindle.
Can you, please, help me somehow?

P.S. In the moment I have working K3, but with special offers and standart indents and other standart defects.

Thanks in advance

@poruchik: You seem throughly confused... (and you're mixing a wiiiiild range of unrelated stuff together). (And, no, I doubt you're having the same issue as the poster I was answering in the quote you mentioned).

I can't really tell what the problem is, since you happen to have been doing a bunch of random different stuff for, err, what exactly?

What did you do to your device, in which order, and what was the initial problem?

thanks for fast reply. But, problem was really not a problem Kindle was needed to charge to ~100% to update it. Now it's updated (3.4), it has the last jailbreak and usbnetwork.
