5.8.8 is a customer firmware build
5.8.9.0.1 is NOT a customer firmware build
It is like comparing Apples (the fruit, not the PC) and Oranges.

Scroll down to the PW3 (7th. gen paperwhite), the firmware versions listed are those for which Amazon released a customer firmware build.
Note that you do not see a: 5.8.9.0.1 listed (because it wasn't intended for customer use - it is a different package type.

This thread is specific to those devices that arrived with the factory production line testing firmware build still installed.
I.E: For some reason, the devices where shipped before receiving a customer firmware installed.
