@hius07
many thanks for the hint. I'll try to downgrade to 5.12.3 or force an upgrade with 5.12.4 (current FW version) to see if I get 007 error as well and proceed as on given post. I'll report later here.

nice weekend.

If you've just successfully ran any iteration of a Factory JailBreak, this is your next step .
Alternatively, if you happened to be running a live, but outdated version of this JailBreak when you got a >= 5.6.x update, this package should get you back on track.

Download the latest package from the Snapshots thread, under the "K5 JailBreak HotFix" listing, and unpack it.
Copy the Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.15.N_install.bin file to the root directory of your Kindle.

Now, eject & unplug your Kindle, and go to [HOME] -> [MENU] > Settings -> [MENU] > Update Your Kindle. If the update is successful, you're golden. If it fails, it probably means you weren't properly jailbroken before the update, in which case, you're still screwed.

If you're coming straight from the 5.6.5 JB or the Factory Downgrade threads and you completely skipped the first post of *this* thread, be aware that on FW >= 5.5.x (i.e., you), using MRPI is REQUIRED to install every other custom packages!
Thank you very much this version "JailBreak-1.16.N-FW-5.x-hotfix.zip" worked for me to fix this error:
"This device is not authorized as a test Kindle by the developer of this item"

Kindle Paperwhite 2 - Firmware 5.6.5


I did a Jailbreak tutorial, in Spanish, with images for this firmware version some time ago, with permission, I put here the link in case anyone needs it.
I hope it is not considered spam

Hi,

Sorry to ask, I have read the README, but don't understand what I need to install.

I am currently using a working jailbreak (kindle-jailbreak-1.14.N) on my Kindle Paperwhite 1 (5th generation), and I want to update it to the last 1.16.N.
My Kindle Paperwhite 1 is currently on FW 5.6.1.1 (I did update my Kindle after applying the jailbreak).

What do I need to install?
- Update_jailbreak_bridge_1.16.N_install.bin
or
- Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.16.N_install.bin
or
- Something else?

Thank you.

@Fstab:

Both of those are technically the exact same thing, they only differ in how they can be installed.

* bridge *must* be installed via MRPI
* hotfix *must* be installed via UYK

So, yes, you do want to use one of those. I'd go the MRPI way, because you can batch it with whatever else you want to update.

What are the reasons to update working jb? No more firmware updates expected.

Thanks. And no need to downgrade the firmware version again?

Not a good reason.
I want to give the Kindle to my son, but I notice an error to open freshly transferred PDF from Calibre. When opening them on the Kindle, I get an error (application error, the chosen application did not start, try again).

I did the jailbreak near three years ago, and I don't remember if there is some specific use, so I wanted to try to update all (jailbreak, KUAL, mrinstaller, koreader) and see if the error is still here. It is not easy for me, because I have really not much time aside from work these days.

I'd kinda glossed over the model name, but @hius07 is right .

And the JB itself is completely inert, so it's unlikely to affect anything else than what it's designed to, which has nothing to do with how PDFs are handled (or not).
