I connect it to an Android tablet (using OTG cable) and copy the update file (using TotalCommander) to the Kindle's root directory.
After disconnecting the Kindle, I enter the Menu->Settings->Menu, but the Update option is greyed-out and Restart is the only corresponding option.
Where am I wrong ... ?

@zeev: You're not using the correct file for your exact Kindle model (or Android is being dumb and mangling the files).

Hi,

After all the failed attempts to jailbreak my Kindle, I've just resetted it to the Factory Defaults.
Now it can be done from scratch ...

Nope, it didn't work.
I've copied the update_jailbreak_0.11.N_k3w_uninstall.bin file (downloaded from MobileRead.com site) to the Kindle's root directory.
The "Update Your Kindle" option is still grayed-out.

What could be done about ?

"Reset to Factory Defaults" may not be doing all that the name implies.

Since the Factory (Amazon/lab126) does not know all about all of our modifications - it can't possibly reverse them all properly.

So don't assume you are "starting from scratch".
You are more likely now "starting from more messed up than before".

Finally I've succeeded to update, using the update_jailbreak_0.11.N_k3w_install.bin file from the kindle-jailbreak-0.11.N.niluje.zip repository.
By the way, how do I verify that my Kindle was jail-broken ?

Now comes the main target of this PROJECT of mine - I would like to install the CoolReader 3.

Just try to install one of the MobileRead packages.
No MR device jailbreak, no workie.

A good one to try would be KUAL -
installing its prerequisites package will also be installing all prerequisites for anything else here.

Question k3w fw 3.4 - no linkss folder after successful updates

hi there!

I have a K3w with FW 3.4 and I used your latest JB & SS files provided in the first post of this thread. excellent work on the instructions, they are bullet proof

I used the correct files (k3w) and during the process, it said UPDATE SUCCESSFUL both times.

yet, there is NO "linkss" folder on the kindle.

any ideas on that?

best regards!

@MonkeyKong: Either you're missing something obvious, or something's seriously wrong with your device.

How long was the update process for the SS install?

Hi,

How did you manage ?
Could you email to me the exact files that you've used ? (zeevik_k@yahoo.com)

Thanks

thank you for your quick reply!
the JB update process took just a few seconds. not even half a minute.
the SS update however took a while longer, close to a minute I'd say.

@MonkeyKong: Then I can't see what might have gone wrong. Restart your device and try again?

If you happen to have KUAL installed, did the ScreenSavers extension pop up in there?

as I am fairly new to all this, could you be a little more specific?
simply restart the kindle and install SS again? or both JB & SS?
or uninstall first?

@MonkeyKong: Just the SS hack. I'd add you're welcome to delete the linkss folder manually first to make sure, but, haha, that's your issue, so .
