@NiLuJe Would it be possible to do anything with PW4 5.12.2 - I'd lost jailbreak after the that sneaky silent update (and didn't updated the hotfix before) - the hotfix from your recent post gives me the same error as the hotfix from the "snapshots" page - "update error: 007".

Another possible mistake that I'd make after 5.12.2 update is to replace (update) MRPI that was originally installed after the jailbreak (and worked previously with ;log mrpi) with the latest from the snapshots page.

Thanks

Thanks for the report.
FW 5.12.2 is available for PW2 and newer.
One would expect it to be the same on all models it is used on, but evidently it is not.
The only thing we can do is collect reports from all models that have been jailbroken and then attacked by 5.12.2
Tedious in the extreme.

I posted on a different thread, and knc1 directed me here.

Basically I have a PW3 and Voyage, both jailbroken. I updated both with the most recent firmware (5.12.1). I have the dummy update folder, and generally keep the kindles in airplane mode.

After the 5.12.1 upgrade, I ran the 1.14 nomax hotfix, used ;log mrpi to install the KUAL booklet, python, and screensaver hack. All was good.

Then a few days ago I noticed that my Kindle Voyage wasn't showing custom screensavers anymore. Discovered that it updated itself to 5.12.2 despite being on airplane mode 99.9% of the time. Now I get Error 007 when I try to install the nomax hotfix.

Based on knc1's suggestion, I just tried the KUAL booklet hotfix that NiJuLe posted on 10/30. I also get Error 007.

This is only on my Voyage...PW3 also in airplane mode most of the time is still working fine and on v 5.12.1

Thanks for all the work to make Kindles better for all of us!

@pavel-s: You mentioned that you had an older hotfix installed before the update. That means you're quite probably screwed.

@indiecognition: Basically the same, except that I can definitely tell you that you had an older, unsupported hotfix. Because...

@all: Don't use the nomax packages, ever. They are *oooold*, and will not support newer firmwares, and may not even bridge properly across older firmwares in some circumstances.

As a rule of thumb, don't install something that was packaged > 3 months before the release date of your current FW, especially for something as criticial as the bridge...

Define "doesn't work".

AFAIK (and I vaguely remember checking), the latest 3.4.x / 4.x releases haven't changed anything to the process.

Bro, Im not sure about what you said..

I copy update_jailbreak_0.13.N_k3w_install.bin to root directory, then start update process and update process bar fuck me off in 3 seconds with "The update was not successful, your kindle is restarting.." after restart nothing changed..

I have Wifi version of Kindle 3 Keyboard. I think there is a some of new resistance fix in last version of firmware 3.4.3..... I have second Kindle 3 without keyboard with 4.XX firmware and there is no problem with jailbreak so..

Allright, my issues was resolved now! Jailbreaked!

1) I uninstall jailbreak update - OK!
2) Install jailbreak update - OK!
3) Uninstall custom language update - OK!
4) Installed JB and custom language like a boss

Hope this helps someone.

This worked on my Voyage with 5.12.2 (though curiously ;log mrpi didn't work? Needed to launch from the button in KUAL). Thank you for your continued efforts! And also, thanks to knc1 for pointing out this post of yours/generally serving as The Support Guy here
