- registered
- no special offers
- sold in Switzerland
- I stopped OTA by adding "update.bin.tmp.partial" directory

I'd like to install Koreader on it.
What should I do to jailbreak?
Should I remove OTA and allow update to 5.11.1.1?
What are chanches of briking it during jailbreak process?
Many thaks for your help

Sorry to bother again..

Wiki states:

"There is a single, complex, special case for 5.8.9.0.1 firmware version. If you get a Kindle with that firmware version, please just post in this thread before you do anything to it, your device **might** be one of the rare exceptions."

Just curious (and a bit paranoic), what are causes/peculiarities that caused bricked devices for 5.8.9.0.1?
I'm not 100% sure of characteristics I reported (the device is second-hand).
I'd like to minimize risks...

Likely unsupported motherboard revision. The factory fw 5.9.6.1 is probably a safer option. It's newer so more hardware revisions are supported. I've yet to see a report of bricking on 5.9.6.1.

Alas, you do lose Kindlet (azw2) support with 5.9.x.
