Make Youtube Video on Jailbreaking

Can someone make a youtube video that shows the entire process of jailbreaking.

For a newbie like me it would be much easier to follow than written instructons.

It can show rooting,jailbreaking,KUAL and all that stuff

From what I have read I want to:
1.Jailbreak
2.Disable auto update
3.Install some app to read EPUB
4.Make Kindle load new fonts.
5.Edit Margins so they become narrower.
6.Some way to edit line spacing if possibble
7.Justfication setting if possible

I have bought PW2 which will arrive in a week.

It would be great if someone would do this for us. I recently turned airplane mode off to download a couple library books and my PW2 updated and wiped out my changes. I really don't feel like wading through that 92-page thread again to figure out how to get it back.

Not a problem if your PW2 updated to 5.6.1 without the current jailbreak and bridge installed -

Short answer: You don't.
Thank the Amazon

Longer answer: Try the PW2 topic index in the Master Prefix Index (see top "where do I start" sticky).

You can always just check the first post, where the latest instructions will be located.

Alternatively, ask your question, and someone will answer.

Question: Let us say someone did post a visual format of the instructions.
What happens when things change, do you have to wade through 92-page threads to find the right video?


Also -- if you had the outdated jailbreak, have no fear -- there is now a hotfix to get things working again. See the main jailbreak thread.

Afterwards, simply reinstall everything.

Video is static information, it's not difficult to create but it's expensive (time consuming) to maintain it.

I think the current method is efficient for the jb/hack providers. Just need to spend some time to read it. At the end of the day, we're trying to hack our kindle. There is no free lunch for hackers

The *ONLY* time video is preferable to text and pictures for a tutorial is when a particular sequence of hand or tool movements must be learnt to perform a particular task or some action must be performed at a specific moment depending on the observed behaviour of the device. Even so, its best presented as a short multimedia clip (<2 mins) within a traditional tutorial.

I happen to agree personally, but not everyone comprehends things the same way -- I am willing to accept that some people are visual learners.

At least one of our Jailbreaks was demonstrated as a video (early K5? I forget which one).
(It was the one where you had to touch the top left corner at a certain time.)

But that was done by a technical blogger not associated with this site.
