a PW3 on 5.8.11 -
you read correctly, there is no software only jail break.
you can still jail break it over the serial port.

No.
Wrong thread, that is the current software jail break.

In the sticky section at the top of the index page -
Thread: "Jail break index"

Section: "Historical jail breaks ..."
The thread titled: "Serial jailbreaking your ..."

Which should land you at:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=267541

Like we went to great lengths to hide that one.

Return the one you have and order a refurbished PW3 from Amazon.
Last I heard, they where still shipping with a version that can be jail broken.
And if not, return it under their "No questions asked" return policy.
