Heads up if you're in the US.

Woot - Kindle Paperwhite 'Manga Model' (2016), 32GB - $89.99 ($5 ship, free with Prime)

I just received my Kindle Paperwhite Manga 32GB from Woot (bought Monday 3/12, free Prime shipping). Looks practically brand new, no scratches or anything. It came with 5.8.7.0.1 firmware. I think 5.7.4 is known to brick these 32GB models but coplate was successful installing factory 5.8.9.0.1 and jailbreaking.

I'm planning to jailbreak mine this evening.

I know that 5.7.4 has been known to brick these Manga Models, so I will be trying with the 5.8.9.0.1 that we have around, or trying to see if the refurbish process left the 5.8.7.0.1 on the system instead of removing it like they have been in production.

Out of the box, this version is not vulnerable to jailbreak ( 'installHTML' method).

I will attempt to 'upgrade' to the 'factory/initial' version after dinner.

Edit 2:

Installing the factory file we found for PW3 Manga model has worked as expected. I am jailbroken now.

this is supposed to be a "Special Offers" version, however I did the jailbreak before conencting to wifi, so special offers had not kicked in yet.

See knc1's post for more details if interested. https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=291336
