Hi friends. It seems that there is a new update for Kindle Paperwhite. Let's see what happens with jailbreak, JBPatch, etc. Hope it won't bring too much work to Ixtab and company .

I also had to reinstall the ScreenSaver hack and the KUAL deal as well, but it is all working fine now.

Hi! I have a Kindle PW 5.3.5 successfully jailbroken by 'ixtab's method...


Now, what are the steps to hack the screensaver and custom it?

Can you please give me some hand here?

I'm having a problem with Collections Manager after I updated to FW 5.3.5.
All I have now when running CM is a blank screen (freezes at startup screen)
I've re-installed all the pre-requisites + the azw2 file already.
Anybody having the same issue?

Please don't cross-post. The answer has been given in the CM thread: CM does not support FW 5.3.5 for now.

What measure(s) had you taken to prevent the auto update?

That could be important information to the developers involved with blocking big brother.

Well, then I guess we don't have to (yet) improve the ones which we offer.

Notes on "upgrading" to an earlier Kpw firmware:
Going by file sizes, 5.3.0, 5.3.1 and 5.3.3 are complete images.

The 5.3.3 and the jailbreak app do not like each other, but the update from 5.3.3 to 5.3.4 is a small incremental one.

You can find a link to an off-site archive of the Amazon images in the first post of the Paperwhite jailbreak thread.

So if you have problems finding add-ins compatible with 5.3.5 - you can just use the Amazon original "upgrade" files to go back to a version of your choice.

P.S: Leave in "airplane mode" until you install some of our "block big brother" things.
