Request: initial firmwares extracted from brand-new devices

A possible software-based jailbreak has been found, but we need the initial factory updates to use it.

If you have gotten a new device and haven't done anything with it yet, please help us out by reading this post and following the procedure linked there: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...03#post3345703

Most urgently needed is the Oasis images, so maximum karma if you can get us one.




*** UPDATE ***

We now have images for everything, except the KT-3.

*** UPDATE 2 ***

We now have that too. Thanks to all those who contributed.

Can we put this (or something similar that does not break the "duplicate posts" rule) in the parent forum too?

Is it allowed to post a message as a quote with a simple wrapper comment (as seen above), for a rule-abiding semi-duplicate post? You know, a typical hacker workaround...

We now have two (2), repeat: two (2), working "Downgrade attack methods" which are being readied for public use simultaneously.

Although the information requested here is critical to the development of one of the two, it isn't a "Kindle main forum" topic.
Keep this request in one place, already even the people working on the downgrade attacks are getting confused.

= = = =

Members who reside in the USA -
It is not a coincidence that we are trying a complete the announcements of both methods which will cover every model Kindle and Kindle firmware version today, July 4.

Less than 24 hours.

One is ready to go as soon as the off-site recovery archivist can copy download links into the off-site resource listing.
When he says the listings are ready, it is ready for use.

The other one has only limited model coverage at the moment, but that is changing rapidly.

Thank you, I'm now jailbroken on my PW2 which was on 5.8.1. Can't believe it was this easy!

knc1 is working on the announcement NOW. Please wait and see what he does. Fellow magicians do not reveal each other's secrets. Don't steal his thunder, okay? He deserves his "15 minutes of fame".

I am trying to keep this low-key (while remaining helpful) here, awaiting the grand announcement...

So, should I sticky that instead now?

Maybe there should be a single index of the various current jailbreak methods we have too much stuff scattered around and we can't sticky all of it.
knc1 -- I will leave that to you, you deserve the honors, I think. Since you were the straw that broke the camel's back, and thereby caused the mess.

Maybe we need a "Master Sticky Index" sticky?

I like the idea of ONE sticky "jailbreak index" thread pointing to all the others (similar to my Master Index thread). The forum mods could keep the first post current. It should link to the jailbreak download posts too (for all the eink kindles). And maybe KUAL extensions too? A master resource for jailbreaking and the essentials, separate from the full Master Index (and only the essentials to keep it simple and easy to use).
