PW Jailbreak?

Hello,

i try to install the jailbreak for my PW using the following guideline:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=186645

I have a Paperwhite PW-Modell (first 4 digits B024) and running the firmware 5.3.0.

According to the instructions i tried to install the bin-file from kindle-jailbreak-1.14.N.zip.

But when i do this on my paperwhite i get an installations error 007.

What should i do? What i am doing wrong?

Can I have the first 6 digits please?
Country it was purchased and used in?
Does it have special offers?
At which step did you get error 007?

checksum error
you have a bad copy of the file, re-download it.

You are not supposed to use the bin file, the instructions say to:

Quote:
Download the attached kindle-jailbreak-1.14.N.zip file, and unpack it. In here, you'll find a few files.
Unzip the contents of the kindle-5.4-jailbreak.zip archive to the root directory of your Kindle.
So please follow the instructions properly.

Also, feel free to post your questions directly to the jailbreak thread, in order to preserve context.


EDIT: knc1, a U007 error specifically refers to "signature verification failed", i.e. jailbreak not installed.
U006 is a "general error", usually checksum failure indicating a corrupted file.

OK - thank you very much.

With kindle-5.4-jailbreak.zip i did the jailbreak and afterwards i was able to install kindle-jailbreak-1.14.N.zip.

Is is not possible to update to an actual official kindle-version?
Can i see somewhere if the kindle is jailbroken?

There should have been an on-screen message.

Where you watching the screen or did you look away and miss the message?

Try installing packages that tells you if you are jailbroken.

You can install any official firmware updates, e.g. http://amzn.com/kindlesoftwareupdates/paperwhite
