Thank you for the quick fix

Sorry, I wasn't able to help more. All the action took place, while I was sleeping.
Now everything is working again

I have the same problem after upgraded to 5.10.1.1 on my Kindle Voyage. Initially I thought I lost the jailbreak forever. Thanks God, the latest hotfix fixed the problem. Big thanks!!

However I found the KOReader cannot start automatically by clicking the PDF files. I have to manually start the kual and then start the KOReader. I wonder if I did something wrong.

BTW, I installed the MRInstaller , KPVBooklet from this link:

And the KOreader from

Just a short remark: The current implementation is too intricate - the following shortened version in bridge.sh would do the same more strict version check for fw < 5.4, but still making sure that any two (or even more... ) digit sub version numbers will correctly be recognized as fw >= 5.4:

Spoiler:
Code:
case "${khver}" in
			5.0.* | 5.0 )
				K5_ATLEAST_54="false"
			;;
			5.1.* | 5.1 )
				K5_ATLEAST_54="false"
			;;
			5.2.* | 5.2 )
				K5_ATLEAST_54="false"
			;;
			5.3.* | 5.3 )
				K5_ATLEAST_54="false"
			;;	
			5.* )
				K5_ATLEAST_54="true"
			;;
			* )
				# Given the previous checks, this shouldn't be reachable, but cover all bases anyway...
				logmsg "W" "check_version" "" "couldn't detect the kindle version!"
				# Poor man's last resort trick. See if we can find a new feature of FW 5.4 on the FS...
				if [ -f "${ROOT}/etc/upstart/contentpackd.conf" ] ; then
					logmsg "I" "check_version" "" "found a fw >= 5.4 feature"
					K5_ATLEAST_54="true"
				fi
			;;


Besides the above-mentioned remark, this fix is extremely helpful for those who believe that they MUST always run the very latest official firmware on their Kindle devices. Those, like me, who stick with the good old 5.8.11 fw, wouldn't run into this problem, but they should update their hotfix code anyway, just to make sure in the case the guys at Lab126 find a method to circumvent the OTA blocker dir trick in future...

@Antinoos: that's because this bit of logic is shared by other bits which *do* need the full-range of check, and I keep them in sync to avoid making those kind of stupid issues even stupider .
