How to downgrade/jailbreak my Kindle?

Hi there, I have an older kindle touch 4th gen serial number starting with B011. It's currently on firmware 5.3.7.3

Is it possible to downgrade to a lower firmware so that I can jailbreak the device? I've read conflicting statements so I'm not too sure if it's possible and what the correct process would be.

Appreciate the help, thanks!

You cannot downgrade the firmware unless it's already jailbroken.

But with 5.3.7.3 you should be good to jailbreak, no need to downgrade
