Avoiding update to 5.6.1 on PW2
Hello, I have a newer PW 2 with the FW version 188.8.131.52 installed. I reupdated it after downgrading and jailbreaking. Now I have heard that the update 5.6.1 is very scary so i am trying to avoid it. I have had the kindle on airplane mode since then, but I would like to still use the WiFi.
So just wondering if this method explained by ricky1989 protects from the 5.6.1 upgrade...? Or should I use the BackdoorLock?
Does anybody have experience with that yet? Thanks.

There is a better description on-site.
You may use either or both.
See the relationship here, in:
Which, in the 'references' section has links to the better descriptions.
Yes, members here have experience with blocking OTA updates on the newer (2014) PW2.
