Yes, I can confirm that now books start as they should. Thank you very much. It was important because KPVbooklet is better for opening books than KUAL. At least on PW1, because when PW1 comes back from sleep, there is a delayed screen refresh, that is, after opening the cover, the book text is there immediately, but soon an unnecessary full screen refresh happens (most probably the PW1 hardware is slow and the stock refresh comes 3-4 seconds later than the KOreader's, I wrote about this earlier in a topic. EDIT: I wrote about the problem, the explanation came from NiLuJe, to be precise )
Opening the book via KUAL, after this plus refresh you will see a big portion of the Kindle homescreen on your book text, a manual refresh is necessary to get rid of it and be able to start reading.
Opening with KPVbooklet, the extra refresh still shows the book text, no manual refresh is necessary after it. That's why I am really happy that you were able to restore the correct working. Thanks again.

Hi

Apologies for replying in between
I thought the PW1 question could be answered here instead of a new thread
I have Kindle PW1 and 3 months back I jail broke it to install KOreader
It was on 5.6.1.1 which I downgraded to 5.4.4
Installed the jailbreak
Installed mrtools and KOReader and again upgraded to 5.6.1.1
KOreader ran but it was very slow and turning pages lead to a crash
I had to factory reset my kindle

Question
1. Is there a specific version of KOreader which i should install for PW1
2. Are there any specific steps i should follow

Thanks
Ninad

Nope, the PW1 is just a terrible device, period.

I'd leave it at 5.6.1.1, but that's the only actual advice I can give you, there's nothing special about it, besides being the worst Kindle, by far.

I don't actually remember the specs, but it might also be under severe memory pressure, which doesn't help KOReader since we have to run on top of the already RAM-hungy system on FW 5.x

I cannot fully agreen on this. I have my shiny new Oasis 3 but I can't install KOReader on it at all. So it is worthless in this point of view. The only Paperwhite I can install KOReader anytime on, is the PW1.
