Beginner looking for advice on how to jailbreak Kindle Paperwhite

I have no experience with jailbreaking, so consider me a beginner to this whole process. I would like to be able to track how long I read (as I outlined in this post), and someone said I need to jailbreak and install koreader.

I have two kindles.
1) B024 Kindle PaperWhite WiFi - with firmware 5.6.1.1
2) G090G1 Kindle PaperWhite 3 (2015) WiFi - with firmware 5.12.4

I have found a few articles about jailbreaking from HowToGeek and LifeHacker. Both describe slightly different processes. Is there one that I should follow over the other? Or is there another method entirely that is better?

Basically just wondering what the next step to take is. Thanks!

Unfortunately you can jailbreak your PW1 (B024) only.
1) downgrade to 5.3.3
