I have a question.
How do you prevent auto updates on the Kindle Paperwhite?

... use dsmid's BackDoorLock hack... (requires jailbreak)

... or, of course: always keep your Kindle in Airplane mode.

If you're talking PW1, then have a look in the developers sub-forum for Backdoor Lock. Obviously you need to install the JB and stuff beforehand but everything you need will be in there

If you're talking PW2 then there's no goodies for it yet as it's just come out and the devs need time to go have a good dig through the new FW and see what they can do with it..

Edit: note to self: stop attempting to reply to posts when the cat is trying to" help" me - by the time I've managed to type a coherent answer, I'm way too late

Thank you for the help. The backdoor lock seems to be working just fine.
