Recovering KUAL after 5.9.5.1 upgrade? ";log mrpi" has no effect

Sorry about having to create a new thread but I've not found anything that appears to match what I'm seeing...

TL;DR - Tried to switch to KUAL Booklet after update but neither ";log mrpi" nor ";un" work - ";711" does. Moving /usbnet/DISABLED_auto -> /usbnet/auto made no difference...


I've a KV (B013 09 - UK Wifi) which is now running f/w 5.9.5.1. I added the jailbreak some time ago, and it's been through a few firmware updates, which just means redoing the packages. It last updated some time ago, but I only really use the jailbreak/KUAL to update the categories and I'd not added any books via for a while, so only recently tried to run KUAL. I got "Application Error: The selected application could not be started", so headed here.

My searches suggested re-installing the mrinstaller, which I've done by unpacking the kual-mrinstaller-1.7.N-r14996 archive to the Kindle via the usb mount on my Mac, then added the Update KUALBooklet binary to mrpackages, then tried to trigger things via ";log mrpi" but the latter has no effect.

Code:
imac:Kindle gwyn$ pwd
/Volumes/Kindle
imac:Kindle gwyn$ ls -l
total 43920

-rwxrwxrwx@ 1 gwyn  staff   4887  1 Aug  2016 Update_dummy_0.0.N.bin
I've also in the past had usb-networking working, but can't trigger it now, so I'm wondering if I'm missing something, has the update removed whatever the ";log mrpi" should be doing or maybe my original jailbreak was an old one and the ";log mrpi" functionality was added subsequently (just guessing).

Anyway, any thoughts/pointers or suggestions for things to try? It would be nice to have the option to manage Collections, but it's not worth my trying to downgrade the firmware nor taking the device apart to try to add a serial line!
