I have JB on my refurbished KPW3 with 5.8.9.0.1 and S/O switched off by Amazon support. It's very easy if you have update_pw3_factory_5.8.9.0.1.bin (knc1 didn't share it with me ).

We do not know any pattern to which ones will and which ones will not.
So we need to collect (in public) information from the people using this procedure:

Is this a new device, never connected to the Internet?
Is it a "refurbished" device?
Is this the firmware it arrived with or has it been updated to this version?
Is it registered?
Does it have ads (Special Offers)?
Does it have a pass-code protection or parental controls enabled?
What country was it sold in?
What country was it delivered to?
Was the seller an on-line Amazon site or was it a third-party seller (on-line or brick&mortar).
See this post above ^^^^

Provide the requested information.
Just the same way other people have "paid" for the information they need, by providing the information we need:

To be honest I got tired of waiting for a 5.8.8 jailbreak for my updated PW3. So I went out and bought a PW3 with 5.8.9.0.1 on it. Put the 5.7.4 update file on it and after a LONG reboot (it took nearly an hour for the install and the kindle load screen to go away) I had a very hackable PW3!

Too bad you didn't PM me for the correct file.
Not to worry, the serial port is easy to connect to on a PW3.

For which PW3? The one on updated 5.8.8, which you were not very polite over, or the new PW3 that I did myself and have now blocked the OTA updates on?

BTW, I did understand that DaAppleMan finally was successful with jailbreaking his out-of-the-box-5.8.9.0.1 PW3, though he used the horribly out-of-date initial fw file.

To recapitulate my jb'ing experiences with different PW3 (4 GB, WiFi) devices (all bought in brick-and-mortar stores here in Germany):
1) Bought around January 2017 (it came with a fw 5.8.3 or so on it...), using the 5.7.4 initial factory downgrade fw: Downgrading worked flawlessly, in around 10 or 15 minutes or so.
2) Bought in June 2017, delivery fw was 5.8.5 (or 5.8.6 - don't remember correctly...): Same procedure worked, but also took really about a whole hour stuck in the "Wait while your Kindle is updating..." screen. Finally, it started up with the factory 5.7.4, and was jailbreakable. I suppose, it has to do do with a newer hardware revision.
3) Bought in the December Sale 2017, out of the box fw was 5.8.9.0.1, and using your magnificent 5.8.9.0.1 initial factory firmware: Again, downgrading (or more precisely: sidegrading ...) took no longer than a quarter hour.

Conclusion: For PW3-4GB the very, very old initial factory fw 5.7.4 still could work, but with heavy problems (extremely long time for downgrading). But the 5.8.9.0.1 factory build is much better for currently selling PW3s (out-of-the-box 5.8.9.0.1), and the ONLY one that could be used with the PW3-32GB Manga model and that special fw version.
