@Geralt: Use the snapshots.

The current stable releases, by design, do not support the PW2, until I get my hands on one.

Thank you NiLuJe, but I have no idea how to use that so I'm gonna wait until you get your hands on one.

The link you provided looks like a great resource, but I'm not that tech savvy to get around that pile

Updated the first post (both here and in the Fonts hack thread, which I'm refraining from bumping since it would be a bad idea to try it anyway) to make the PW2 situation clearer .

Hello again

Like the title says, here's a FW 5.0.x - 5.4.2 JailBreak!

The payload is based on yifanlu's jailbreak, with a few tweaks to make it more Touch/PaperWhite centric,
and a fantastic new delivery method discovered by yossarian17. So, as always, thanks to everyone involved in Touch & PaperWhite hacking, particularly yifanlu, ixtab, geekmaster, eureka & yossarian17 .

In addition, this is also the home of the K5 (Touch/PaperWhite) port of the USBNetwork hack .


Latest Updates (11/21/2013):

JailBreak v1.8.N (New delivery method, PW2 support!), USBNetwork v0.14.N (Updated binaries).

INSTALL:

Jailbreak:
Spoiler:


Download the attached kindle-jailbreak-1.8.N.zip file, and unpack it. In here, you'll find a few files.
Unzip the contents of the kindle-5.4-jailbreak.zip archive to the root directory of your Kindle.

Now, eject your Kindle, and go to [HOME] -> [MENU] > Settings -> [MENU] > Update Your Kindle. The updater won't actually ever run, this is normal. After a few seconds, the words **** JAILBREAK **** will appear at the bottom of your screen to confirm that the device is jailbroken .

And that's it, your Kindle is now ready to install custom hacks!



ChangeLog:
Spoiler:
  • Jailbreak:
    • v1.2.N:
      • Works on firmware <= 5.1.2 .
    • v1.3.N:
      • Minor tweaks for robustness.
    • v1.4.N:
      • Proper PaperWhite support.
    • v1.5.N:
      • A few minor model detection fixes.
    • v1.6.N:
      • Proper support for the UK 3G PW.
    • v1.7.N:
      • Implement a 'bridge' to carry the JailBreak over the 5.3.0 update (following a suggestion from eureka, thanks!). (See the Bridge section)
    • v1.8.N:
      • New delivery mechanism w/ PW2 support, thanks to yossarian17 .
  • Doc: $Id: MR_THREAD 10131 2013-11-21 18:56:02Z NiLuJe $
can you tell me how to let Kindle Paperwhite show battery percentage? thank you!

Wow...just WOW!

Question- (I suspect the answer is 'no', but for clarity) is there any reason to apply this updated Jailbreak to a previously Jailbroken PW1...or is this singularly a new delivery mechanism for the Jailbreak and Bridge?

Might be related but every time I connect my kindle to PC it deletes my dictionaries as well. I have to re-download them from the cloud. Maybe it did the same to jailbreak.
By any chance do you run debian? I have this issue that's been chasing me since squeeze that corrupts the fs and prevents copying files to the kindle.
I never got to the root of that, only knowing that it seems fine on ubuntu.
I mostly use sftp anyway, it's so much nicer. Only, I occasionally load my books into a documents folder on the / partition. Once I did that to a 500 mb comic and that was no fun.

usbNetwork 0.14 produces the message:

After a pause - network works ("N starting sshd").

Default settings; connection on a USB-cable.

@kaznelson: Great, so, not limited to cryzed's device then... Joy "_". Can you check if toggling it through KUAL works properly?

Has anyone on 5.4.0 checked that USBNet behaved properly there?

In KUAL:

- Network switching-on happens to an error (see above).
- The button "Toggle USBNerwork" don't trace a network state - label changes on pushing.
- The network is not disconnected after message "N stopping sshd". It is necessary to connect once again a USB-cable (there will be a damaged network), and to disconnect it.

@kaznelson: Thanks for the tests! The third point is especially interesting, and points in the same direction as something I wanted to try... .

I'll see if I can come up with something new to test sometime today...
