Thanks for response.
I did. I followed the instructions from both text document I downloaded and the one that appeared on my device.

I copied two first files directly to the root directory - not into the "documents". I seriously don't know where I could make mistake.

You didn't make any mistake. But the jailbreak itself does not do anything visible - it only "unlocks" the Kindle so you can install custom applications. So yes, you need to install something else to actually experience something new - Try KUAL for a start.

@ixtab

I've been having the diags issue mentioned early in the thread. The odd thing is, I've had my paperwhite for around 6 months, and I had no problems with the jailbreak until a week or so ago. (I screwed up and let amazon update firmware. When I went to reinstall the jailbreak, the diags issue came up and the rescue packs wouldn't install with them) Any suggestions for a non-SSH fluent individual to reflash the diags partition?

Also, I apologize for having my first post be a request. I know how much everyone hates it when lurkers like me do that.

Heads up! on the PW firmware 5.3.6. I wish I were competent enough to contribute something useful to this group beside these heads ups...

It has already been determined that the jailbreak survives the update to 5.3.6

So no rush about updating this, anyone can just install an earlier version which this jailbreak is built for, jailbreak, and then update to 5.3.6

... but it would still be interesting to know whether the jailbreak can be *installed* on 5.3.6

(It "surviving" an update simply means that the jailbreak bridge is doing its work).

Could anybody with 5.3.6 try this please?

Thanks for testing and reporting back.

So after all, there is no "armistice" - at least not from Amazon's side. Not surprising to me. (I *was* surprised that it worked on 5.3.4 and 5.3.5. Probably unintended).

Whatever.

Well, I thought it would be nice if they had changed their behavior.
Better than saying that lab126 screwed up their intended build (twice in a row).
I'll edit my nice words and go back to making jokes about lab126 build Q.C. from time to time.

I would love to see a statistic how many user uses the fw 5.3.5 and 5.3.6 or everything else. -> meanwhile in the secret lab "lab126" :
- No upgrades boss, the new devices is downgraded too
- Fck#&?! ixtab! Implement a new feature immediately, and everybody will upgrading!
- What's the most important feature?
- Hmmm...make an automatic buying while clicking a sample book.

Very good work! Is this jailbreak only for Kindle PW? Is it for Kindle touch 5.3.2.1, too? If not, why is it so complicated for the last one? Could s.o. simplify it?

This thread is for the Kindle Paperwhite.
Try this thread for the Kindle Touch:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=186645
And follow the links for the KT-5.3 devices in the top post of the thread.

Q: The "last one" what? Question is ambiguous in its context.
Q: What do you mean by: "s.o." ?

No, it's not for the Kindle Touch. But jailbreaking a Kindle Touch is as simple as burning Kubrick to a CD and booting from the CD.
