Paperwhite 3 (2017) Jailbreak questions

Hello everyone,
I just got my Kindler Paperwhite 3 (2017) with Firmware 5.8.10.
I bought the special-offer version and got the ads removed by talking to the Amazon customer service.

I am now thinking about Jailbreaking but have a few questions first:

1. If I jailbreak and later go back to stock, will my ads still be removed? It's the special-offer Kindle with ads removed afterwards by the Amazon support.

2. With Firmware 5.8.10 it seems like the only way to jailbreak is by downgrading, jailbreaking, upgrading to 5.8.10 again? Or did I over read another jailbreak method?

3. I forgot my 3rd question Will come back when I remind it lol.

Thanks in advance !

1) Yes.
The Special Offers status is contained in Amazon's database. The Kindle only has a local copy.

2) No.
The only way to Jail break 5.8.10 is by using the serial port access.
(Have you even tried to read the introduction to the current jail break?)

3) Most likely answered in the current jail break thread, the first post of which you should now read:

I have read that thread. It explains that 5.8.10 cant be jailbroken but continues by installing the stock/downgraded firmware from which you jailbreak and then uodate again.

It doesnt mention anytjing about a special serial port jailbreak?

What part of you can't do that do you not believe?
When I write:
Quote:
Will this jail break work on my current firmware?
If the third field of your firmware version number: 5.8.7.0.1 is larger than 7 this jail break will not work on your device.
That means it will not work on: 5.8.8, 5.8.9, 5.8.10, ..., 5.8.99999999.
Please do not even think of asking if this message still means what is written. The message is kept current.
I really, truly mean it.
You need read no further in that post or in that thread.
Of course you are welcome to try, and if you can figure out a way to install an older firmware on a device running 5.8.10 (without a serial port connection), we would like to know how you did it.

The sticky jail break index thread certainly does mention a serial port jail break.

That is exactly what I wrote ! The link your posted explains that 5.8.10 can't be jailbroken by following the instructions. And still you insisted that I should read and follow your instructions ?!?!

So finally we can both agree:
Your link won't be of any help for me.

You are probably referring to this one then?

While I should be able to do all this I am not sure if its worth the struggles to me.

I currently feel just dumb for doing a firmware update right after getting the Kindle Paperwhite 3. Not sure if it was at "5.8.7" (or previous) when shipped but chances are it was :/

That is correct, so when you read that it can't be done, stop at that point.

Do not continue on, you have learned all that you need to know when you read that in your case, the post (and the thread) do not apply to your case.

Stopping when you discover that your device can not be jail broken is also "following directions" when the directions include (even an implied) "stop here".

I wrote that in the directions that 5.8.10 can not be jail broken with that method so that people knew all they needed to know from the post and thread when they reached that information.

In your original post, read your step 2. Did you read on another site that could be done?
No, that firmware cannot be downgraded. Therefore, there is no software jailbreak.
That is in bright colors in the first thread.
If you have the skills and the tools then you can do a serial port jailbreak from the link knc1 gave.
Otherwise, you are stuck with a stock kindle.
