When you talk about where you stopped, were you talikng about the file used in Step 4, 5 or 6?


Step 4 should have the kindle reboot, for, 5-15 minutes depending on things ( the guy reading under a tree screen, and the progress bar ), that is normal. Tell us if it did not take a long time.

Step 5 is what actually does the jailbreak, and you can move onto that without hurting anything, as log as you follow the instructions from knc1's thread. If you get any problems with that, also stop.

Do not panic if the update is not immediate, it usually takes 10 minutes or longer.
If there is not a very noticeable delay and when you check USB storage the file has disappeared, that means this method will not work on the firmware version currently installed on your Kindle.

5. Download and install the current version of Branch Delay's factory firmware jail break.
This step installs two files, our signature certificate and a 'Jail Broken' document.
If the 'Jail Broken' document is not on your Kindle in the /documents folder after the completion of this step, then the certificate is not on it either!
If this happens to you, stop here and post about the problem, there is no reason to continue if the JB is now missing.
6. Download and install the current 'hotfix'
