Hey all,

I'm running 5.12.2.1.1 on my PW2 (2013/4GB/WIFI).

Am I out of luck being able to downgrade to be able to software jailbreak?



Cheers

Hi,

I am a bit confused because of the two installer file names:
  • Update_usbnet_0.22.N_install_pw2_and_up.bin
  • Update_usbnet_0.22.N_install_touch_pw.bin

Is the "touch_pw.bin" file the right one for both PW4 (10th Gen) and KOA3?
Unless I'm blind, neither the Readme.txt nor this thread nor the download thread contains that info.

`Update_usbnet_0.22.N_install_pw2_and_up.bin` is the right one.

Thank you very much!
I had misinterpreted "touch_pw" as "for all models with touch" and would have screwed it up.

Some packages (like JB Hotfix) do not need MRPI.
Is there a way to rebuild some packages (e.g. usbnet) to allow installation without MRPI?

@edo1: Technically, yes. It'd just be massive maintenance burden for wide release, because you need to rebuild your package after each FW build.

(Case in point: the current hotfix builds are probably one or two FW releases out of date right now).
