(PW-1) Attacked by Lab126

Yes, the first generation Paperwhite is now subject to an OTA update to the dreaded 5.6.x series firmware.

See:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=201064850

This update automatically downloads and installs on your Kindle Paperwhite when connected wirelessly;

However, you can also manually download the software and transfer the update to your device via USB cable.

Reported by: oumlaut
Who also reported that the 'bridge' did not appear to have worked.

- - - - -

*) Disable your wireless (put in airplane mode) ;
*) Install the Backdoor lock and lock it ;
*) DO THIS NOW!

Keep it locked and/or in airplane mode until the PW-1 jailbreak can be confirmed (by Niluje) as able to survive the update to 5.6.x on a PW-1 !

If you are in need of a guinea pig, I have a PW-1 (with current JB, etc) that I don't really care about losing hacks on... let me know if you want to test anything out.

Next Tuesday may be a good time -
The PW-3 is promised to ship that day.
(I'll do the same as done for the KT-2, not that I think it will help any.)

What if I almost never use the hacks that I already installed and won't miss them? Is it safe to allow it to auto-update, or should I uninstall my hacks first?

5.6.1.1 silently ignores kindle-jailbreak-1.14 and kindle-usbnet-0.18. I also gave the hotfix a try. Kindle issues an "Update Error".

Ah, so - an 'old timer' here.

There should no longer be any concern about the auto-update process bricking the Kindle if you leave your hacks in-place.

It should auto-update fine with all your hacks in-place ever since Amazon started making the updates complete system images.

Does that include the Rescue Pack and the Coward's RP add-on? I'm going to eventually hand off my PW1 to someone else (who won't care about hacks) and I wouldn't want it to boot into Diags on them.

I am not sure.
Check the [tutorial] FGA thread, I think Niluje added a post on how to "really clean" a Kindle.

Thanks! I'll go looking...

Found: FYI - from FGA's NiLuJe suggests that an update of 5.3 or > and a factory restore should 'mostly' return things to vanilla. Also @dsmid kindly included an uninstall with the CRP add-on...guess I'm good!

** $5 says I don't do them in the right order when the time comes

Since CRP/RP relies on upstart services that will be deleted by a full-image update, it shouldn't be a problem...

Actually, Amazon/Lab126 built the firmware for the new PW-3 to also run on the PW-1, see:

PRIOR TO UPGRADING:
(Because there are unconfirmed reports that Amazon killed active documents in some 5.6.x versions.)
  • Install KUAL
  • Install the Kindle Firewall with the BBB filter
  • Enable BBB filter, forget about ever reaching Amazon network, accidentally or on purpose.
  • You can also install the Backdoor Lock, for just in-case Amazon expanded their network.
BIG NOTE:
You have to re-enable the Kindle Firewall after every re-start.
It was designed that way.

Amazon/Lab126 just have to do their thing (without asking us).
I use "hobby time" on this "load of bricks dropped on my PW1" when, where and if I can find it.

I think they call that "life" -
