I pre-ordered my Paperwhite 4, when I get it what research do you want me to do

I have a couple things i am going to try to check.

1. See if these ship with the same fresh-out-of-the-box downgrade options tha tthe PW3 had, before that started bricking them

2. I downloaded the source, and saw some new filed names 'android' in the linux source, that reference ADB and Fastboot, I will be trying to trigger some factory mode using android flash cables.

Please use this thread to put anything you think I can try to do, and I will try to get to it.

The official name from amazons source code repository is Paperwhite 10th generation, bu I'm going to go ahead and start the flame war, and declare that the models will be named "PW4", and the 8 gb and 32gb variants will be "PW4.8" and "PW4.32".



Because it is waterproof, I am not going to attempt serial jailbreaking on this device, I will leave that to someone else.


Research Status

G000 T607 - 32GB - US - Special Offers - Wifi - 5.10.0.1 - Research complete
G000 PP07 - 08GB - US - No Special Offers - Wifi - 5.10.0.1 - Research complete
G000 PP07 - 08GB - IT - Special Offers - Wifi - 5.10.0.1 - Research complete

I can tell that those three all share the same software version that shipped right now:
SOFTWARE_VERSION: 015-juno_10001_moonshine_rex-333743
VERSION: 5.10.0.1 (3337430015)

If you are a power user willing to do some in depth work, and you have a different model, please PM me.

Might 2. mean it'll ship with the same android-esque diags mode than the KT3?

As for 1., platform/board handling should already be ready in KindleTool, give me a shout if you get something before an official update rears its head .

If Kindle was bricking your Kindles it was something personal. None of mine were ever bricked.
"To brick: The word "brick", when used in reference to consumer electronics, describes an electronic device such as a smartphone, game console, router, or tablet computer that, due to severe physical damage, a serious misconfiguration, corrupted firmware, or a hardware problem, can no longer function, hence, is as technologically useful as a brick."

None of my Paperwhites have been 'bricked" and the Voyage I gave to a student wasn't "bricked" and the Oasis 2 I returned quickly to Amazon wasn't bricked so if you're was, it was personal.

As this thread is under the subforum where we discuss jailbreaking, bricking (often due to corrupted firmware) is one of the expected risks.

I actually just traded in a bricked PW3 (Error Code: 2, factory fw 5.8.9.0.1 install failed) for a PW4. Amazon's trade-in offer of 25% discount even for non-working Kindles is a great deal.

Too few innovations to make it interesting for me.
I think I'll wait for some new technology, such as color or clearink displays

Mine says it will be delivered by 8 PM, thats approximately 10 hours away.

If it comes earlier, I may or may not be able to get to it, depending on if I am still at work.

@knc1, if you come around this thread, do you remember the research requests we were asking people to do on the new Oasis?

I don't have the instructions for that written up handy, if you still did, could you get them to me? Otherwise I will try to write them up again.

@coplate: There was a dedicated thread about that, was it not? (Unless we're not thinking of the same things: I was thinking of getting at the factory image).

EDIT: Can't find it either, though. -_-".

What country was it sold in?

Was the seller an on-line Amazon site or was it a third-party seller (on-line or brick&mortar).
