Q.Can I jailbreak my paperwhite 5.6.1.1 device without opening the case?

My equipment
Paperwhite 5.6.1.1
Serial starts B01D
Its a wifi+3G model

Can I jailbreak this device without opening the case? By loading firmware and doing the update?

I apologise in advance, if this is a FAQ, I did try searching for "5.6.1.1" and "5.6.1.?"

Also I'm having problem with the CAPTCHAs, taking sometimes 4 attempts.

Please use the forums correctly. Questions about jailbreaking belong in the developers' sub-forum, to where I'm now moving this.

No, you have to open the case.

But now that you are at least in the correct forum....

@knc1 not true.
@HarryT Your kindle is PW1, just as mine.
Here s the way:

Downgrade your kindle https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=264432
Jailbreak it https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=186645

All tested on my kindle, same model as yours just canadian version, not europian.

The possibility of a downgrade on FW 5.6.1.1 on the PW1 appears to be a quirk, it shouldn't be working, which is why the standard reaction to a question with 'FW 5.6.x' and 'downgrade' in it is 'nope' .

I just assume they **should** have found any thread with that string in its title.

Could be they where mis-using our advanced search (after all, they started in the wrong forum, no telling what forum(s) they where searching in).

And how to reach the advanced search is #6 on the FGA list:

Thank you.

Sorry , the ads are interfering with my screenreader that I use. I have to get someone (virtual solver) to enter the CAPCHPA. Is there a way I can avoid this, a

Is there a source of ready modified or a retailer who sells modified units, like chipped consoles, that will always take JB firmware?

Try Firefox, or any browser that offers an ad-blocker feature.

The only capcha's I have seen here are on the wiki, and then only if not logged in.

give us some specifics about the "screenreader" you are using - maybe we can come up with some specific help, other than: "use something else".
