manual jailbreak 5.8.10

hello. I am new to this forum and this is my first post.
my kindle is running fw 5.8.10 by default and after some searching I found out that the only way could be serial jailbreak/root. so I opened up my kindle, connected serial pins, removed the root password. annndd.. the part that says copy this files to kindle is confusing? do I just need to copy .pem file to the kindle? or do I have to downgrade? dump new fw?
I sure can do these manually. so someone just tell me what should be done to jailbreak?

There is more than one serial jail break thread.
Please post in the thread that you are using when you have a question.

Yes.
Just copy the *.pem file to the proper place, as directed.
(If you had posted in the correct thread, I would know what directions are confusing you and given you a better answer.)

Hello, my name is Jimmy and I am also trying to serial jailbreak my kindle that I accidentally updated to 5.8.10. I took a look at these websites that shows you how to remove the root password,
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=267541
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=263113
So I ordered the TLL adapter which arrived today. I just realized what to do after I remove the root password. Where do I find the jailbreak files for my kindle? Would you mind sharing with me your jailbreak files and how you did it?

Many thanks.
