It is indexed in the sticky jb index above.
Sorry, but I wasn't able to find it. Do you have a direct link to serial port jailbreak?

I looked the hard way. It was on either page 3 or 4.

1st post, 1st one under historic jailbreaks.

Now please do yourself a favor. Make sure you understand all the directions before attempting it.

Is there a way to install initial factory firmware to PW3 5.8.8 jailed?
Jailbreak is safe, can install any bin packet if required.

Not sure what you mean.

PW-3, now running 5.8.8
Jail broken?
Not jail broken?

Not that I can recall anyone trying to over-write 5.8.8 with the earlier "factory" version.

but if the device is already jail broken -
Add the "Rescue Pack" before starting (that puts ssh onto the 'diags' system and returns the function of "ENABLE_DIAGS" on the visible root).

Use KindleTool to open the factory package -
Running in the "Diags" system, over ssh, copy the rootfs.img file on top of the "Main" partition (mmcblk0p1).

You will probably have to install the kernel from the factory package also.

Follow any of the main system de-bricking directions -
only the device and the file names are different in the directions.

I've lost the jailbreak on my KOA running 5.8.8 and could not downgrade it to previous firmwares.

Is there any way to jailbreak my KOA on 5.8.8?

Thank you!

What makes you think you lost the jail break with the update to 5.8.8?
It is known to survive the update.
Unless of course you used the "Reset" function on the device.

Read first line of first post.
That is your situation now.

I mistakenly used the "Reset" function on the device. Now I cannot jailbreak my KOA. Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you!

NEVER AGAIN USE THE "Reset" MENU ENTRY. Never, ever, unless you intended to wipe out the jailbreak survival code. Which you really, really, need.

Enjoy your KOA as it is. That is the only thing you can do.

I would say no since those that did the other jailbreaks either got busy with life or have life issues.

Main guy here right now is old enough to be my father and I am 51.
