Yup - you did it.
You changed the registration which removes our application keys.

Re-install the 'hotfix' package.
With a customer-use firmware build, you will have to use MrPI.
Since KUAL is not working until you re-install the keys . . . .
You have to trigger MrPI using its main page, search bar, command, enter:
;log mrpi
(the semi-colon is part of the command)
after putting the 'hotfix' package in /mrpackages.

Also be sure to install Python from NiLuJe's snapshots thread.

If you intend to use "cover mode", then scroll up to find an archive that contains a fixed file to support all versions of kfx books.

Do i have to do all over again or just from the hotfix wich will be step 6 (i know these steps by memory by now)

Download and install the current 'hotfix'
The current version is attached to its release post, see:
Jail Break Survival Code

Just do the installation of the 'hotfix' -
One of the things it fixes is the missing application keys that where erased by the change of registration.

You have to put it in /mrpackages and then run MrPI using its search bar command.

its there at KUAL but it dosent work.
yes i got the special offers kind, and went to amazon to disable then but funny thing it dosent appear the special offers there.
any ideas?
thank you
ninki
No idea why you have special offers on your kindle but not in your amazon account (most likely you have disabled it on your amazon account but you have never connected your kindle to the internet ever since).
What I can tell you is that if your kindle shows special offers, you will never be able to see the screensaver until you don't remove such offers.

Yes.
You have to use MrPI to install it now that you have firmware built for customer use.
Put the update_*.bin hotfix package in /mrpackages, disconnect USB cord, then:
Since KUAL is not working (that is what we are fixing) you will have to use the home page, search bar command to run MrPI:
;log mrpi
The semi-colon is part of the command.

No.
It does nothing to the registration.
Just the opposite.
Changing the registration breaks all of our applications.

Check the last entry in MrPI's log to be certain the 'hotfix' package installed.
It is in visible USB storage at:
/extensions/MRInstaller/log/mrinstaller.log
(or something very much like that - I may have typo'd it above)

If the last (very end of the log) installation of the 'hotfix' completed without any errors - then:
Allow the Kindle to connect to the 'net and remain connected long enough for Amazon's servers to update its "Special Offers Status".

Your account page shows what Amazon's servers know.
The Kindle shows what it knows about.
Amazon's servers are the boss, they will make the Kindle change its little mind on the subject.

pressing the 'sync' feature a few times might help, it might not.

@knc1, Do we have more information about when registering or derestiering will kill the jailbreak?

I jailbroke 5.7.4, installed the bride, KUAL, and friends, and upgraded to 5.8.1, then I installed usbnet.

Then I registered my amazon account. The jailbreak and the Bridge both appear to still be in place.

Is it just de-registering that I need to worry about?

It may well be that only de-registering has an effect.
I honestly have not been testing this 'feature' very often, so I try to give 'safe' advice.

Thanks, and it definitely could be different on different firmware versions.

Hi,

I am having a problem with the screensavers hack. It worked fine on my first device (PW3) but I cant get it to run on the second device (also PW3).

I did the factory downgrade to 5.7.4. installed the JB and hotfix. Put KUAL and MRiP on the PW3 and used the MR Package installer to install python and the screensaver hack.

Both installations went through without any errors. Nevertheless I do only have the standard background pictures and no 'Hi, I'm the screensavers hack' screen showed up. The KUAL preview of the current screensaver only shows a white page.

The device was disconnected from the usb port before each installation was initiated.

Any ideas? Thank you

Your description skips Step #7 -
You must install a customer firmware release.
None of our add-ins are intended to work properly with the factory firmware build.

Also read Step #8.

Thank you for your quick reply. So I have to do the OTA update or download a new firmware from the amazon servers? The hack worked with the model's initial factory firmware .. thats why I thought the problem would be something else. OK I will then start the update. Thx

<edit/update> the problem seems to remain the same. I successfully updated with "update_kindle_all_new_paperwhite_5.8.7.0.1.bi n" to 5.8.7.0.1 and reinstalled the python script and the SS Hack with MRPI ... the installtion went through but after the reboot its all the same. Standard screensavers no 'Hi, I'm the screensavers hack' screen
