No-one suggested this wasn't necessarily the case. Maybe I read in to it too much.

I expect the comment regarding KOReader just means there's no point updating to higher for the poster since they don't use any of the features of native firmware anyway.

Sticking to this version means you can always redo the factory fw jailbreak in case something happens.

We do rely on the base system & kernel . That may include significant performance improvements or features...

TL;DR: No specific version constraints, no.

Hi folks, just received my brand new Kindle Paperwhite and before I came on here to research jailbreaking it, I foolishly powered it up and connected it to the WiFi. I have since put it into airplane mode and the firmware still seems to be 5.10.1.3 am I still ok to jailbreak this puppy?

If your firmware is really still 5.10.1.3, then yes, you can jailbreak it.
