Firmware 5.8.8, 5.8.9-plus jailbreak

  • : There is no such jail break at the time of this posting.

  • : Please do not post questions about who, when, where, etc. in this thread.
    That is just 'noise' that the thread subscribers are not interested in seeing or reading.

Likely to get a jailbreak?

Hi! How likely is it to get a jailbreak soon? My friend just bought a new PW-3 with an intention to use KAUL and actually read some PDF's, but 5.8.9.2 is killing him.

Thank you,

TBH, not very likely.

But for reading PDF, a Kindle is a rather bad idea jailbroken or not. An iPad is much better for reading PDF.

Actually when a PDF is first processed by k2pdfopt for your particular Kindle model it works quite well.

Of course this is completely Off-topic for this thread. At this point in time there is no known way to jailbreak this level of firmware. Should your talents lie in the area of expertise required to locate software vulnerabilites that can be exploited to accomplish this feat I am sure your assistance would be welcomed.

Sorry, but PDF is much better read on a good tablet than a 6" eInk screen. Even processing with some program isn't going to make a PDF designed for a letter size piece of paper look all that good.

Thank you for your past work. I have a PW2 which was updated to 5.8.9.2 before I started looking into jailbreaking it. Is there anyway to force the loading of an older firmware version? Even if I have to open the case?

PS - Yea Hall and Oates!

Yes, any Kindle where the serial port connections are know can be jailbroken via that route. The only one where the proper connections are currently unknown is the Oasis.

You will have to open the case and connect the proper 1.8v serial adapter to do so and use the appropriate serial software on your computer with the proper settings. Look in the sticky posts at the top of the main forum page and you should be able to find the thread on your particular model.

In my very best Curly voice, Three Stooges of course, "Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk, I can do that! Thanks! Woop, woop, woop, woop!". Don't even have to install puTTY as I already use it. Do have to order the serial adapter though. Darn!

You definitely need the proper adapter as burning out the port is a possibility with the wrong voltage. With a compatible adapter you won't "be a victim of circumstances!"

Hope it goes well for you.

In my best Kotter voice,
Read the instructions. Read all the instructions. Read all the instructions again. Make sure you understand everything. Now you may be ready for the serial port.

I'm having a difficult time auralizing "Kotter". Which Kotter? John Kotter, or Welcome Back,
Kotter
. One has a ubiquitous, scholarly voice; while the other has a very Brooklyn voice.

Welcome back, Kotter. He was the first teacher that came to mind.
