It will post a re-try event, and the time delay has varied with the firmware version. I can't say what it is with the version you have on it from the factory.
It might be fairly aggressive, since Amazon/Lab126 knows the original firmware version can be jail broken and they do not want that to happen.
I have seen in some versions they will re-try every half an hour.

It should not effect the performance or time between battery re-charges.
Still, put it in airplane mode before letting it go to sleep.
There is no reason to let it connect while you are not using it.
And it will wake up and try to call home even when showing the "idle" screensaver. This is specially true on the Special Offers devices.
Yeah, like having an hour old advertisement on the device would hurt their sales.
thanks for your answer

That is the best way.
The first check it makes is to see if Wifi is enabled, if not, it gives up.
It probably takes all of a few tens of micro-seconds to do that.

My wife has a PW3 on 5.8.10, will this jailbreak end up being useful on that device? We could crack it open and do the serial method w/o trouble, but if a soft approach is on the horizon it isn't worth doing (she just wants the book cover screensaver.)

If you can exchange your PW3 for the new Oasis model, then you can use this jail break.
Otherwise, no way are the two related.

Hi! I have ordered a KOA2, and it should arrive tomorrow. I have ordered it from Best Buy, so it will not come pre-registered to my Kindle account. It also has special offers. If I want to jb the KOA2, then, based on my reading of this thread, the following is what I should do. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong about anything.

1) Don't let my Mac touch my KOA2! Use a Windows PC instead.
2) Add the "update.bin.tmp.partial" folder at the root of the USB drive.
3) Turn on WiFi long enough to register my KOA2 and remove special offers.
4) Follow the steps in the link in the OP.
5) Wait patiently for the rest of the magic! (with an standing offer to help if that would be useful)

How'd I do?

Greetings from Kabul, Afghanistan.

Instructions to block update worked great. My KOA2 out of the box: G000 SA12, fw version 5.9.0.6

I'd be pleased to test JB. Thanks!

Beta tester available for 1 week

My KOA2 is going back to Amazon next week.

Until then I can test anything on it and compare with PW2.

KOA2-32gb 5.9.2 with SO wifi (G000 SA)
PW2-4gb 5.8.11 without SO wifi (9017)

Both are jailbroken. Both are registered.

I use the following (on PW2 except as noted):

font_ramp (on KOA2 and PW2)
kual
coolreader
koreader
librariansync with folders
kterm
kindleexplorer
screensavers in cover mode
prune orphaned folders

I played with practically all other extensions but found the above to be most useful.

(PS Returning KOA2 because I can't adjust to the flashing and artifacts as lines of text refresh on page turns, especially in the dark.)

@knc1: My KOA2 arrived today. G000P8, firmware version 5.9.0.5.1.

My image file is currently being uploaded to Dropbox. Even compressed, this is going to take some time. I'll PM you tomorrow with the link.

New Kindle Oasis 2

I have a Kindle Oasis 2 WiFi 32Gb with serial number prefix G000 SA. Am I correct that there is a jail break available for this? I added the update.bin.tmp.partial directory to the USB storage to block further updates, registered the device and haven't added a passcode or parental controls.

Is there anything else I should do?

Thank you!

not for 5.9.2, only for the earlier version that it was shipped with.
