Huh. Hold the presses. They shipped a fixed busybox in 5.10.3, but NOT in 5.11.0.

Code:
unzip: removing leading '/' from member names
TL;DR: Yup, won't work on 5.10.3.

The Merchant method is doing the exact same thing.
The two files \etc\uks\pubdevkey01.pem and \mnt\us\documents\You are Jailbroken.txt are visible in the USB storage.
You at some point in the process are using a PC or PC software that converts "tar bomb" files into "safe archives" (the only way you would see those files and directory paths on visible USB storage).

Most often a MACos "feature".
Disable that "feature" or use a system that does not helpfully convert compressed archives into "safe" archives.
Our jailbreak archive MUST be a tar bomb - that is how it works.

Confirmed, just read up two posts from your own.

So update it to 5.11.0 and then jailbreak it.

5.11.0 is KT4 only and shipped earlier so it kinda makes sense.

KT4
9045 (01/24/2019): 5.11.0


PW4
9026 (01/11/2019): 5.10.0.2

9036 (01/18/2019): 5.10.1.3
9077 (02/16/2019): 5.10.1.3

9167 (04/20/2019): 5.10.3

*sigh* Now we really need to find a different JB method.

To be honest, I was kinda baffled that they hadn't updated busybox on the KT4....

Both the PW4 & KT4 variants of the production version of 5.11.1 ship with an updated busybox, too.

So, unless they start shipping PW4 with a wonky and friendly 5.11.0, it's not looking great.

It is only the non-production, factory use only, firmware that needs the "old" busybox.

Unfortunately, for the same model and firmware version, the busybox on customer firmware tends to be the same as the busybox on factory firmware. I've compared customer and factory firmware and it seems they're almost identical apart from /etc/shadow and the additional /usr/local/ directory on the factory firmware.

Interestingly enough, customer 5.10.2 (Dec 2018?) already had the new busybox.

I wonder if for the initial 5.11.0 release, they were just focused on supporting the new KT4 hardware so they can quickly push it to the factory. The launch PW4 5.10.0.1/2 looked just like 5.9.x as well. The new features were added later in 5.10.1.2 which came out pretty much the same time as the PW4's release date.

Now of that sounds like "factory use only" firmware.

Hi. I am new to all this, but want to jailbreak my Kindle PaperWhite (G000T608).

I read some posts on this forum and realized that I made the mistake of accidentally downloading an update before I learned of jailbreaking. The firmware on my kindle is now 5.11.2

Is it still possible to jailbreak it and if yes, please teach me how!
