It should survive, unless Amazon has decided to start wiping the fixme script?

But you are blocking the updates, aren't you?

Imho, this method allows to manually install an firmware 5.6.1 to PW2 (only) with ALREADY integrated jailbreak:
Code:
ROOT/etc/uks/pubdevkey01.pem
ROOT/MNTUS_EXEC
Automatic JB recovery will not be (may be); but before update on >=5.6.2 jailbreak will work.

Yes, I get the idea.

It is only a way to preserve a jailbreak, and may be unnecessary.

Maybe someone with a PW2 and familiar with a serial port can test it.




I think people will want to avoid the update anyway, at least until things have settled down. Like, A LOT. War isn't fun.

@eschwartz/@kaznelzon:

The bridge does the job, at the very least for the JB itself, so, for now, no need to resort to that .

What we haven't confirmed, since the only feedback we've had was from someone with an outdated bridge, is whether MKK survives the trip .

If you like, you can try updating to 5.6.1 with an up-to-date JB, and see if the MKK carries through.

Would you like to be our guinea pig?

Sure...

My wife's PW2 is on 5.4.3 -- it is at this point not JB'n as she doesn't want / care about the hacks. So, if I JB it and add hacks and then update and lose the hacks permanently it will be no loss. If I can convince her to let me play with it, what would you like to know and in what order?

I just did the JB on Saturday morning, and as I understand it the JB 12 is the most current and includes MKK. How would I then test MKK?

ETA - downloading and installing the update now.
ETA2 - after applying the update and it rebooted, I saw ***MKK JB*** and then it rebooted again.
ETA3 - I am in and have verified 5.6.1., backdoorlock and "folder" still in place.
