For the love of Python language (THIS IS MY GOAL!)... having a problem with the install...

I just went through my first jailbreak (so yes, n00b, but well-versed in Linux and Python). Using a Kindle Keyboard (k3w, B008). Installed so far: KUAL, mrpackages, screensavers (linkss). Running "Version 3.4.2".



My problem: Python won't install. mrpackages finds it, restarts, but afterwards there's no Python (just files /mnt/us/mrpackages/._Update_python_0.14.N_install_pw2_kt2_kv_pw3_koa_ kt3.bin and /mnt/base-us/mrpackages/._Update_python_0.14.N_install_pw2_kt2_kv_pw3_koa_ kt3.bin
).

Q: This thread references FW 5.4. Is that REQUIRED to install+run Python? (Currently, I block any update, have done a "mkdir /update.bin.tmp.partial", since I'm terribly afraid of breaking something)


RELATED:

Q: If I absolutely must upgrade the firmware to get Python, do I just pretend I haven't rooted and allow the Kindle to update itself? Nothing special to do besides rm'ing /update.bin.tmp.partial? Will a FW upgrade "break" anything, including the jailbreak?

Q: Will things be complicated by the fact I can not mount this kindle as a USB MS device? Sometime after the jailbreak, that stopped working. (Don't care too much about USB MS, since sshfs works, but if it's a quick fix...)


Apologies for all the questions. I have great respect for what this community has done, and I value your time. I spent ~ 12 hours this weekend reading the forum and other websites looking for answers on my own.

Shouldn't you be asking in this thread?

Anyway, USB networking is toggled on/off by searching for:
;un

Toggling USBnet off enables USB mass storage.

It is usually possible to download specific firmware versions from amazon. You might need to teake the URL for a specific version.

YES, thanks! In error, I mistook this "latest" thread as being the correct place. I do see the kindle-python for kw3 under your link, and will continue my adventures there.
