Unhappy Jailbroke lost...

I already jailbroke my kindle a year ago (5.1?),
It has KUAL and the backdoor activated... but after several months I activated the wifi... and amazon installed the last firmware... AGAIN! (I losted las JB for the same reason)

So, a couple of question:
1. if I create the folder "update.bin.tmp.partial" it will prevent it? (backdoor hacks doest work)

2. If I reinstall the JB file via update (as previous version) will it work?

Thanks in advance!

Should I do this?

1) It should
2) No
3) Yes
You will have to install MrPI if you want to add any of our packages.
It wouldn't hurt to update KUAL also.

@MrCaringi: The battery tweak is broken on FW >= 5.6.5.

As for the rest, we're going to need more details than "doesn't work". The simple fact that MrPi successfully installed stuff is a good start, though. (If it actually did).

JA! good news instead!

I was reading others topics, and it seems like the lack of "JAILBREAK" message could mean JB already working.

So, lets start from the beggining:
Some data showed by KUAL:
--
Kual v2.6 (20150819,a)*PW2
--
Device: PW2 Wifi US&Int
Platform: wario
Board: pinot rev.34
Device Code: D4
FW: 5.6.5 (2730300038)
--
Ok, Im trying to get back the SS Hack Working this way:

NOTE: Linkss folder already exist because previous installation.

I followed this topic:
Snapshots:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=225030

Follow SS hack post:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88004

So, I put the content of "kindle-python-0.14.N-k4.zip" (Update_python_0.14.N_k4_install.bin) and the content of "kindle-ss-0.47.N.zip" (Update_ss_0.47.N_k4_install.bin) in the folder "D:\mrpackages"

1. Its bad idea to install both package in one run?

unplug
open KUAL
go to "Helper+"
select "instal MR packages"

pluged kindle again:
I put MY screen saver at "D:\linkss\screensavers" (758x1011 png images),
in the "D:\linkss" are these files (without mentioning the folders):

-auto
-cover
-info.txt (only this file has a size > 0 KB)
-mounted_ss_tmpfs
-mounted_tmpfs
-pinfo
-verbose

restart kindle from settings menu, (didnt see any mesage about SS Hack when booting like the first time I installed a year ago), open a book (Eragon ), read a couple o page, push sleep button and... nothing happens.

Any ideas?

---
UPDATE:

I try this way:
1. Erase LINKSS and PHYTON folder first:
2. Putting phyton and SS hack installation file at "D:\mrpackages"
3. Installing via KUA \ helper +
4. TADA!!! no LINKSS nor PHYTON folder exist on root... so... MRPI doesnt work?

Then pay attention to what MrPi is outputting during the package install, but I'm guessing incomplete JB.

OK, I read the hot fix post (again, again, again...)
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...postcount=1597

And repeat the process:
1. put the file:


2. Check if I got the proper device for the file:


3. Update via settings menu


4. watching the output:






Didnt see the ***JAILBREAK*** message...

Officially: I dont have any idea what to do next...

@MrCaringi:

Good news: your JB is okay, which is why you don't see anything when re-applying the hotfix .

Good news²: You're trying to install K4 packages, which is why it's not working .
You have a PW2 . cf. the S/N list for the gory details.


FYI: When MrPi says it's destroying the package, that's because you're doing something wrong . Here, because it didn't match your device.

does anyone know where the tap for power is on the k4? I've successfully jail broken a voyage, and I have found the serial connections in another forum, but there is no mention of where they tapped power from on the k4.

Power?
What power?

Better question: What adapter are you using?

Usually the adapter is powered by the USB side of the adapter.
Some adapters require an interface reference voltage from the serial side - but only some.

Note:
Update your info box - it only mentions a PW-2, no mention of the K4 or KV.

Dumb question:
Why do you need a serial port on a K4?
The K4 does not require use of the serial port to either jailbreak or de-brick.
