My Kindle tried to update itself from 3.1 to 3.3 yesterday and failed. I uninstalled the screen saver hack. I tried the update manually. It appeared to work but the version remains on 3.1. Any advice appreciated as now I am still on 3.1 but with the dreaded factory screensavers. Thanks..

Hello,

I bought the Kindle 4 a few days ago, and I would like the jailbreak and install various hacks above. Unfortunately, because of its release (too) recently, I see no article about the jailbreak or hacks for this version of the Kindle. Is this jailbreak is compatible Kindle 4?
For I dare not try it without being certain that there is no risk of it being screwed up.

Thank you in advance.

PS: I am a French who has used Google Translate, so if the translation is bad, sorry.

You can update from 3.1 to 3.3 without uninstalling the jailbreak or hacks. I have JB + SS + Font hacks. After the manual update to 3.3 my hacks are the same as before!

Check you used the correct update file for your Kindle.

Question

@NiLuJe:
I had no problems installing the 3.2.1 jailbreak on my Kindle 3 Wifi, but I noticed that .zip file doesn't contain a corresponding 3.2.1 uninstall.bin file. Did you miss including it in the .zip file or will update_jailbreak_0.10.N_k3w_uninstall.bin uninstall the 3.2.1 jailbreak, too?

When I updated I was concerned about failures so (after I was sure the jail break works on 3.3) I uninstalled everything. At that point the update worked fine (it may well have if I left some things in); then I ran the 3.2.1 jailbreak and re-installed my stuff.

It did reboot several times when doing the 3.3 update -- it worried me but seems to have been fine.

Thanks... but tried all that to no avail. I suspect I need to remove the original jailbreak, but I don't know how... anyone have an idea? it was installed with ss hack 0.18 maybe six months ago.

I have jailbrake and usbnet installed, as well as a few others, but no fonts or screen saver hacks, and the only thing that prevented the update to 3.3 was the physkeyb (Hardware keyboard localization) hack.

Yes, I removed the original jail break. If you've installed a version of NiLuJe's jail break, two things come to mind: (1) is there a ENABLE_HACK_UPDATES file in the top level directory on your Kindle? If so NiLuJe's jail break prevents Amazon updates -- just delete the file and you should be fine. If you need to uninstall the jail break, I'm pretty sure he recommends you use his latest uninstall in all cases. I'm not sure if the latest jail break uninstall is always the correct choice with yifanlu's jail break.

@Doitsu: There's no need for a 3.2.1+ specific uninstall file, no .

@timfrost: Check this thread for more details on how to get the logs/pinpoint what's causing the update to fail.

@z0mtec: Like greyTraveler said, it does sound like there's still some kind of jailbreak/update block still in place. You might want to try uninstalling *everything* jailbreak(s?) included, restart your Kindle, and try again.

@z0mtec

U007 usually means there's a problem with the signature verification.
You may telnet or ssh to kindle and check /proc/mounts for pubprodkey01.pem mounted or run the md5sum on /etc/uks/pubprodkey01.pem.
If it's mounted or md5 is different than "00cdf09ffae3e6eeb7ad62f0b27fc667" it'd mean that you have a custom key mounted. If you're not using ENABLE_HACK_UPDATES feature just do "umount -l /etc/uks/pubprodkey01.pem" and see if it helps.

@NiLuJe I put the Kindle into debug mode and the update worked. Bizarre?
