Just updated my voyage, went fine. Settings menu is totally revamped now with a new look, looks cleaner to me. Other than that haven't noticed anything.

Hi ! I have a jailbroken PW2 running firmware 5.4.3.2. I'm using Screen saver hack in cover mode.
I was planning on upgrading it but I'm not sure if it runs better with newer firmware. Would you recommend the upgrade?
Will it loose jailbreak and screensaver hack? Considering it's an old firmware/jailbreak-hack.
Thank you!

I didn't have Koreader on my PW2 but I just intalled it-- and KPVBooklet (with MR Package installer)-- and it seems to work fine. I saw the test EPUB I copied to my Kindle on the home screen and it launched Koreader.

You'll probably have to re-install kpvbooklet after the update.

If you decide to update, I would install the latest jailbreak just to be safe:

After the update to 5.8.5, you will have to re-install python and the screensaver hack using MRPI:

Yes, it did. The book titles are darker and easier to read.
