Cool Downgrade paperwhite running FW 5.12.4

So according to the jailbreak guide, there are some issues with the latest FW version and I happen to have it on my kindle paperwhite PW3.
Is it possible to downgrade it anyway?
A few months ago I tried to register a Japanese account on the device and since then the lock screen cover is stuck on a Japanese ad.
With jailbreaking I hope to change the cover and maybe add some features I don't know about yet
Thanks guys!

No, and doubly so because while your post is unclear on that subject, it would seem to hint at the fact that your device is currently *NOT* jailbroken.

That said, a factory reset should clear your issues.

I will clarify my post. You're right it's not jailbroken and I have tried resetting it from the device's advanced options but it stayed on the same version.

It's not supposed to change versions. It will clear user & account settings, requiring a re-authentication, which should allow you to set it up with a non-JP account.

You *cannot* downgrade a Kindle, with a very very very few exceptions. This is not one of them.
