You are still not following step 1. "Kindle 9" is meaningless in identifying for jail break purposes.

Factory firmware is the special firmware for use in the factory. Kindles come out of the box with customer firmware, not factory firmware.

If you do not read all the instructions carefully, you are in for many problems along the way.
#A: You post to a new thread or you post to a topic thread of your concern.
I.E: You do not just post to the topmost thread you see, the first place you see it.

#B: This forum expects people to read more than just the title of the thread.
I.E: Read the responses to your post shown above.

#1: The first post of a thread, such as this one, contain important information for the reader, please read it.

Sorry, it's a Kindle Basic 3 (2019), G0910L, KT4.
So if it hasn't come with a Factory FW, how can I install the Factory FW on it?
Sorry about the questions.

I have read that ''THIS REQUIRES A FACTORY IMAGE RUNNING ON YOUR KINDLE.''
But I don't know how to put a factory image on my Kindle? I assumed that 'Factory FW' just meant original firmware it came with.

It looks like this is going to take many messages. Please start your own thread and include the above information and also PLEASE write the firmware version number your kindle is running. Nobody can read your mind and nobody can help without information.

Tweaked the first post a little bit to essentially warn that FW >= 5.12 should be considered evil, until proven otherwise.

I wanted to install the Screensavers hack, which led me down a rabbit hole on how to firs Jailbreak my device. I hae a KT4 presumably (Serial number GO910L) running FW 5.11.2. Can I install the factory FW 5.11.0? If not is there another way to JB? Or am I simply out of luck?

Btw, I've been hopping around the forum reading about all the amazing custom work you guys are doing in here and, wow! Amazing!

Thanks for the lightning fast response, even though it's bad news :'(

Guess I'll have to wait and see and hope for the best...
