jailbreak my brand new kindle paperwhite

heya,

I'm not a developer or a hacker, sorry!

I'd like to jailbreak by new kindle paperwhite. It's running 5.4.2 firmware.

If someone could point me in the right direction for the correct jailbreak and correct hack so I can upload my own custom screen savers I'd be very grateful.

I don't want to break my new toy!

cheers

TC

I too am trying to learn how to do this. I have a new paperwhite, running 5.4.3.2 and I want to jailbreak it.

Did you look at the link I already supplied? That page also links to the screensavers hack.

It is, after all, the Wiki for all Kindle Touch Hacking.

I just edited that first line to look like:
... ALL Kindle Touch AND Kindle Paperwhite ...

Now maybe our readers will see the AND in the sentence.
