Question jailbreak Kindle PW 3

I really don't want to go through the Jailbreak process, mainly because I am not a developer, and don't quite understand some of the instructions.

But i really want my Collections to be synced between my device, my Amazon kindle ebook list (which may not be possible if I have non-Amazon books?), and Calibre.

My Paperwhite serial number if G090 G105 7232 ONO7
Firmware version is Kindle 5.9.4 (3278740046).

My computer is a Mac.

Can this device actually be jailbreaked (jailbroken)? Will I be able to sync Collections? Are there directions that a nondeveloper might understand?

Thanks very much for any help.

Only jailbreak option is if you physically take apart the Kindle. Might require some soldering skills, too.

If you use Send to Kindle/Personal Documents Service to store non-Amazon ebooks, then you can sync collections using Amazon's Kindle Cloud Collections.

Alas, I don't think Calibre will work since afaik, the Kindle Collections plugin for Calibre requires jailbreak.

The good news: You are in luck, no puzzling directions to follow.
The bad news: No directions of any sort to follow
(other than use a serial port jb - we do have Mac specific directions - but I know you do not want to do that.)
