The "I picked the wrong file" problem I tried to fix with yesterday's edit that gives visual separation between devices and their files.

But this user probably was using the old index listing.

Why doesn't a moderator delete this thread? It's not maintained and google keeps directing people here.

We are just plain folks here.

Assuming that there isn't a need to be politically correct about driving people away from instructions posted by someone else, the moderator notice at the start should be modified. "Members might want to check out" is suggestive, not persuasive. It sends a signal that there are alternate instructions, but it's okay if you just go ahead and follow these instructions without bothering to read another thread.

Sure, the download-redirect to proper instructions will send people over to the supported instructions, but it might be less confusing to be persuaded to open that thread manually, rather than being left to wonder why they ended back on mobileread

@knc1 You could add 'Kindle', 'Voyage', and 'Paperwhite' to the thread title and non-spoiler contents to improve the Google ranking.
Most people buy a 'Kindle' or 'Oasis' and not a 'pw3' or '6th gen'. For the existing members who know their product shortcode the naming is perfect - for the others it's bad and they may have a hard time to find https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=275877
Of course it's up to you decide whether you want to do this as it is your thread.

A moderator should not delete this thread. Even if the information is out-dated one could still find valueable information in it. Also the authors of content belonging to this thread may get upset that their posts were deleted.

I'm not sure whether the part about adding those to the thread title is a good idea, mainly because the title would become too long, but putting a list of all supported devices at the start of the thread in bullet points without a spoiler tag, similar to this thread, would definitely be a good idea. No need for the device names to be links, just names should be good.

Okay, so I've spent a lot of time trying to jailbreak a PW2 (sn 9017) and I sincerely think that it's not possible right now. I've succesfully downgraded to 5.4.3.2 and installed the Generic jaibreak for Factory Image. There'a new book that reads "You are jailbroken".

BUT there's no way I can install the Update jailbreak hotfix_1.14.N since the .bin gets deleted every time I extract the Kindle from my PC. I have tried the Niluje snapshot version with same results.

There a lot of people saying that they can't install the .bin on a (9017) model and no one of them has solved the issue apparently

Edit: wrong thread

Edit: wrong thread
The model 9017 is fully supported - has been for the past 50 weeks.
Once you get to the correct jail break thread and follow directions exactly.
So your first suspect should be that you, yourself, are doing something wrong (as in, not following directions without making your own modifications to them).

- - - -

Please provide link(s) to wherever those 'lot of people' are reporting the problems.

It isn't here, nor in the correct thread of this forum.

If you are referring to posts on another site, then don't confuse those directions with the original (here).
There are a lot of sites / blogs with poor or just dead wrong, local versions of these directions.

Note: I can only support the set of directions I wrote and posted on this site, if people are having trouble with the directions on another site, they need to get that other site to support them.
