Question Hiding Kindle Feedback book

Since I've finally decided yesterday to update my PW3's firmware from 5.9.7 to 5.13.6 (I'm planning to sell it after I jailbreak my new PW5 , pending the release of new jailbreak method ) I've realized that I've totally forgotten about this annoying "Kindle Feedback" book thing that exists on newer firmwares.

Anyways, managed to figure out how it can be hidden temporarily / until next reboot so I've then created a KUAL extension to run that code:


Code:
cd /var/local 
sqlite3 cc.db 'update Entries set p_isVisibleInHome=0 where p_cdeType = "Entry:Item:Feedback"'
Since that is the only entry in cc.db database with p_cdeType of "Entry:Item:Feedback" and we don't have to depend on UUID it should be universal for all users so I was wandering if one could add that line of code to some existing script that runs on each OS (re)boot to automate the hiding of Kindle Feedback book? (if toggling back to visible doesn't happen at a later time in boot and UI start process )

Maybe @NiLuJe would perhaps consider adding that line of code into something like "bridge.sh" of whichever script runs at each boot?
Or if not does he or anyone else have a suggestion for a candidate script to test that idea?

I'm wary of touching the db (or anything, really) on every boot, because it's potentially fragile (and breaking cc.db will soft brick the device, IIRC).

Hello folks. First of all, thank you for the detailed guide and answers in this thread.

I have recently followed the instructions on this thread's first post to jailbreak my kindle PW4, firmware version 5.13.1. I have gone through all steps (JB hotfix, KUAL, MRPI, etc). As far as I can tell, everything is working flawlessly.

Since the jailbreak, I have kept my kindle on aeroplane mode in order to avoid forced OTA updates. Looking through the forums, however, I have seen many people mentioning a package named `renamedotabin.zip` which would theoretically allow me to turn on wifi. Is this package compatible with my specific combination of jailbreak method and firmware version?

Thanks in advance for any help! =)

Yes, should work regardless of the jailbreak method, and also for your firmware version. People report success from version 5.12.* onwards in this thread.
