You can uninstall any hacks, yes. Although the jailbreak specifically is harmless -- and if you uninstall it you may get locked out. We don't (yet) have a jailbreak for fw>=5.6.0 .

IOW, you don't need to uninstall the jailbreak.

locked out of where??

I am confused.Is it possible to remove jailbreak or not?

I know that 5.6.0 cannot be jailbroken.
So I keep mine in airplane mode so it does not update.

There is no harm in keeping the jailbreak, thus I advise keeping it -- that way, if you get hit by the firmware update, you are still jailbroken, rather than being locked out of (potentially) ever jailbreaking your Kindle if you change your mind.

But yes, you can remove the jailbreak. I do not know why anyone would want to, but the jailbreak comes with an uninstall.bin in case you really want it.

FWIW, I don't think Amazon has denied anyone warranty because they jail broke their kindle. Of course I don't know what they'll do if you call them and say I bricked my kindle while modding it, can you send me a replacement

They will lose their opportunity to remain happily oblivious in the Land Of Not-Caring.
