Exclamation PSA for FW >= 5.10.x users

As we've just found out, because of a very old and stupid bug, a piece of code responsible for keeping the JB alive had a crippling bug that subtly broke stuff on FW 5.10.x.

In order to get things working again, you'll need to update to the very latest JB hotfix (either before or after the update), and then, just to be safe, as far as my own stuff is concerned, to use packages from the snapshots thread when reinstalling stuff after the update.

And that's it, crisis averted .

Note that, currently, the nomax build of the hotfix will *not* help, as this was a code update, not a packaging fix.

@NiLuJe: The jailbreak on my PW2 survived but MRPI and KUAL no longer work. (I installed the latest snapshot versions.)
KUAL only shows KUAL in the title bar and the package installer fails with "Failed to parse package."


I didn't know that the hotfix needs to be installed via Update Your Kindle.
KUAL now works fine.

No. I used ;log mrpi, because I didn't know that the hotfix can be installed via Update Your Kindle. After installing it via Update Your Kindle KUAL works fine.

@Doitsu: Yeah, the hotfix/bridge comes in two different packages:

* Hotfix, to be installed via UYK
* Bridge, to be installed via MRPI

The hotfix is distributed in the dedicated post linked in the first post, while the bridge install is found in the snapshot version of the JailBreak tarball.

It's both a legacy remnant and a safety precaution in case you have a very old bridge that doesn't allow you to run MRPI via ;log after an update .

But they technically both install the very same ting, in the very same manner, it's just packaged differently .

Yeah, amended a sentence to make it clearer an update implies reinstalling custom hacks, which may not have been clear for people who haven't followed stuff closely over the years .

So i have question.

I have jailbroken PW2 on 5.9.6, so far I have always used ;log mrpi to rejailbrake/tweaks.
So I downloaded this new hotfix and it got deleted from root.
Did i missed some prerequisites for UYK?

I did install it with KUAL helper just fine, and tried again to put hotfix in root, but again it got deleted.
Since this new update require hotfix to be installed with UYK or maybe doesn't because I preinstalled it before update, so I would just need to reinstall tweaks?

@marink0: If a package gets deleted before you can reach UYK, then you're using the wrong package for your device.

In this instance, my crystal ball would say: either you're using the bridge install instead of the hotfix, or you're using an old hotfix package.

If you "updated" the bridge right before the update (either via hotfix or bridge install), then, no, you shouldn't have to do that again after the update, you can jump straight to reinstalling your stuff.
You may want to do a full reboot before that, to make sure the bridge has a chance to put everything back in order, but that's it.

Tried again to copy hotfix on 5.9.6 again it got deleted.
Updated to 5.9.6.1 and copied hotfix and it installed just fine...
Updated to 5.10.1.1, reinstalled tweaks, everything works.

Thanks @NiLuJe for reply
