Let me guess how is the new jailbreak installed:
DHCP shell command injection ?

Turn it on somewhere where signal will be weak. A basement, in an aluminium lined box (aluminum works?), also moisture reduces signal strength, so maybe run the shower and close the door for a bit. Something like that. A shower in a basement in a lead-lined box would be bet. And be fast

5.6.5 only, only tested on PW2/PW3 English firmware. Probably should hard reset before doing this. Up to you.

Copy jb to /mnt/us. (root directory mounted when attaching kindle to a computer)
Serve up jb folder on port 80 on a web server.
DNS redirect "a" to the web server via man in the middle, changing the server name on your network, adding an entry to your DNS server on your router, etc. (if you specify a wireless network and click advanced, you can put in a static DNS server)

i.e. after all of this, browsing to a should open up index.html.

Open the browser on the kindle, browse to the url "a". (with no quotes)
Read instructions.
Pray.
If it succeeds, you can then run NiLuJe's bridge update pack to complete the jailbreak. This just installs the developer key.

Will potentially put up a much easier method this weekend. Also will throw up an explanation sometime in the future.

Special thanks to Cyril for the CVE/original POC, the Gateway 3DS team for a slightly enhanced heap spray, NiLuJe for way too much, and Amazon for fixing it up.

Thanks. Though this is too advanced for me. Will wait for a simpler tutorial. All doubts quashed

To be fair, if jailbroken for screensavers, how does that affect the ads and their placement? Must ads be removed before jailbreaking for screensavers will work?

Ditto. Many thanks to Branch for putting in this effort!
I miss the days of yore when you could just drag drop some firmware...

I've never had an ad supported kindle but from what I've read I believe you have to have paid to remove ads before the screensaver hack will work.

Hmm... Hopefully I can do the jailbreak when I get home, I've got a webserver already set up.
Will try when I get home.

I believe the screensaver hack works on special offer kindles too, just in order to see the effects you have to remain in airplane mode for a long while to starve out the ads.

Heyo, pretty new around here and super stoked for this jailbreak. Just out of curiosity, is it necessary that I do a DNS redirect as opposed to just typing in the IP of the server that's hosting the jb folder?

I read through the source and I don't see why not.
But I read fast an may have missed something critical.
Let BD have the last word.

PS: Try it - what can it hurt if it doesn't work?

Yes, it must be "a." You can't simply host the files and browse there.

Hi Branch, thank you so much for this!

One question: I need to quit kindle USB mode when I open browser on kindle, but I can not eject kindle since the jb folder in kindle root directory is still in use (it's been serving up). I'm using OS X now.

Can I serve up jb folder which is not necessarily located in kindle root directory?

Worked on my Voyage.

For those who want a slightly easier method, you can use create_ap with the "--redirect-to-localhost" option, instead of setting up dns. Example command:
Code:
sudo create_ap mlan0 --redirect-to-localhost -n test
The files can then be hosted with
Code:
python2 -m SimpleHTTPServer
This hosts on port 8000 by default, so navigate to 'a:8000'.
