I just did and I lost jailbreak and the kindlet jailbreak and the jbpatch. I reinstalled jailbreak successfully and the kindlet jailbreak but jbpatch is not working (probably because the existing versions are not yet for 5.3.4) Coolreader is working again, however.

PS: Sorry, I cannot speak to the screensaver hack survivability since I do not use that one.

Noticed no changes at all, if there are any changes then they must be somewhere deep down...

I wish they'd say more than "general improvements for your Kindle Paperwhite" Not installing it for the time being...

Indeed and I do have it I so rarely turn the PW WiFi on anyway that it's a bit of a moot point but at least with the backdoor lock I know there's no chance of an update sneaking past...

While I didn't need to reinstall the jailbreak- I reinstalled the rescue pack and dev certs- I did have to reinstall the following:
  • Kindlet Jailbreak
  • Screensaver Hack - but not Python
  • USBNet
  • HackedUpReader

JBPatch doesn't currently work even after a reinstall.

KUAL seems to be working fine however.

FWIW there's a couple of people on the Amazon UK forum who have said that the only difference they've noticed so far is that their PW seems slower responding to menu commands and going to a book from the home page since they've updated...

I'm not doing any more updates on my paperwhite or touch. I won't be turning on wifi, either, I prefer to load books via calibre/usb. I don't want my mods messed up!
