Lightbulb Jailbreak Kindle Touch FW 5.3.7

So, Kindle Touch update 5.3.7 has just come out.

Unlike all previous updates, which were all differential updates, this one contains the full system. This means that all modifications are lost during the upgrade, INCLUDING THE JAILBREAK (unless you already had the jailbreak bridge installed).

There are two solutions, depending on your situation.

1. If you are still on an earlier Firmware version, install the jailbreak bridge from NiLuJe's Kindle Touch jailbreak. It's the file named update_jailbreak_bridge_*_install.bin inside the jailbreak zip that you'll want to install.

This will (try to) ensure that the jailbreak survives future firmware updates.

2. If you are already on FW 5.3.7 and do not have the jailbreak installed (symptom: Error 007 when trying to install a custom update.bin), then use Kubrick. DO NOT let it overwrite the main partition when asked - otherwise you'll end up with FW 5.1.2. Instead, skip flashing the main partition, and only select to install the jailbreak.

It's also a good idea to install the jailbreak bridge (see item 1. above).

So the jailbreak itself hasn't changed. Maybe Amazon doesn't like being sworn at.

Sorry about that (but not sorry enough to change my post in that other thread).
Look at avatar - they are dealing with an angry old man here.

PS:
Thanks everybody for the quick response to the 5.3.7 release.

The jailbreak itself hasn't changed. And they can't easily change it, because it's exactly the same as their developer program. If they remove the "jailbreak itself", they remove the ability to develop for the Kindle.

However, they have closed all jailbreak vectors, and tried to make our life as difficult as they possibly can. They deserve to be sworn at.

It does sort of show, doesn't it?
Once upon a time, I was a "(young) nice guy" but that got to be boring.

Hi there.
I have Kindle Touch running firmware 5.3.2.1 (the previous one) and I have the diags partition installed (using your, ixtab, step-by-step guide: http://ixtab.tk/kindle-touch-images/README.txt). Should I install the jailbreak bridge before update or is it already safe?
Thank you.

Yes, install it.
No harm will be done if it is already installed.

I am certain that the challenge is the sort which has already attracted people who like solving these problems.

That statement of mine should not be read as if a solution is being worked on, some devices, like the DX, still have challenges about them that remain unsolved.

hhmm so followed the steps, only trying to re-jailbreak having gotten bumped to 5.3.7 the other day. Follow the kubrick wizard to the end and get "FAILED"

Any thoughts. Side note now I'm stuck in the Kindle boot screen, won't load past that.
