How to UN-JAILBREAK my Kindle Voyage

My Kindle Voyage doesn't take new books from Calibre or direct sideload anymore, they show up on the drive, but not in the Listing on the Kindle.

I'd like to un-jailbreak it, but don't want to brick it by doing it wrong.

What are the steps to un-jailbreak it and update it? Thanks. I don't mind wiping it.

Thanks for the help.

BTW am on Firmware 5.8.11 version

Factory reset then install firmware update. Reverse works, too.

Factory reset: deletes hotfix which make the jailbreak persistent

Firmware update: deletes the jailbreak file

The "jail break" is a single file that is only ever used or even touched when checking the signature of one of our packages.
Only that 256 byte file, the actual signature handling is still Amazons.


So it is impossible for the troubles you report to be due to the jail break file that is present.


And keep in mind, that if the Kindle ever has a chance to call home, it will update to the current firmware - - which you will find is impossible to jail break.


That is: you are setting yourself up for a one way trip.
So I hope you enjoy your stock Kindle, the one that still will not show you your books.
