I also just downloaded the 5.9.2.0.1 firmware manually and transferred it to my device (not updating it yet, just checking if I was able, which I am), so I'll wait to get a report back on if its functional.

One thing to note (you most likely know this) but after transferring the update called "update_kindle_all_new_paperwhite_5.9.2.0.1.bi n" to the root of my Paperwhite, ejecting to check if I could update, then hooking it back up to my pc, the update .bin changed name on the device to "update-3262860017-f872f1f2-7d20-4a21-b59d-9cccaf8cfe63.bin".
This probably isn't helpful at all, but I thought it was worth noting.

One question though, even if you are able to jailbreak on 5.9.2.0.1 would any of the hacks work for it? (Mostly interested in the screensaver hack)

Thanks for reading.

Anything which works for 5.9.2 should also work for 5.9.2.0.1
When, if ever, we have anything that works on 5.9.2.

The file rename is how Amazon/Lab126 defeats our previous "universal jail break".
Been that way for nearly 3 years now.

Ah, thank you for clarifying :P

What are the odds/progress of getting things working on 5.9.2(.X.X) so far?

No work is being done on any add-ins that I know of.
There is a prototype replacement for KUAL, but the author hasn't packaged it for testing yet.

Mostly, people are waiting for me to finish the new update bridge code.
In addition to the new progress messages already seen here, the new bridge code will be able to bridge any/all the update_*.bin package name format add-ins.
(This feature will require changes to the contents of every update_install_*.bin and update_uninstall_*.bin package. Which is why package authors are waiting on me.)

Ah okay I see, are the add-ins not being worked on because they also need the updated bridge code, or have the authors just gone onto other things?

Anyway take your time, and thank you for the responses.
Hopefully Ill be able to make my kindle how I want it in the near future

Everyone here works independently.
There is no central control or information point.

If they post something, then they must have been doing something.

There are neither schedules nor pay.

Well, don't forget that gift of a new Oasis.
That probably brings my pay rate up to some number of pennies per hour (or $0.02 an answer).
Which is more than others are getting (other than the ad revenue Alex collects).
