Upgrade to 5.8.10

Hi,

Apologies if this is answered somewhere else but I am thinking of upgrading my Paperwhite 2 to 5.8.10 and wondered if the jailbreak remains intact following upgrading to this release. Thought it best to check before upgrading!

Thanks

The jail break survives the update to any version of the firmware.
Either newer or older versions.
Either factory or customer versions.
Or any combination thereof.
It is a virus.
Think of it as "Kindle Herpes" - once the Kindle has been infected, it is not going away on its own.

Just bought a used Paperwhite 2 and upgraded to 5.8.10. I'm guessing that means no jailbreak possible for this device?

There is no software JB for that firmware level. You must wait for a software JB to be developed, JB via serial port or learn to live with the firmware as Amazon distributes it.

I think 5.8.7 (or something?) was the latest one that you could downgrade to a Jailbreak-able version

Pokin' around for a half hour… wishing there was a "Guide to upgrading jailbroken Kindles"… as a reference. Every few months I have to drudge through the "Jailbreak your Kindle" stuff and remind myself of all the little steps and where a simple firmware upgrade fits in

So lemme see:
- go get firmware from Amazon website
- install it
- reinstall… MRPI? then KUAL? Then whatever hacks (Py, SS, etc…)?

(JB'd KOA @ 5.8.9)

Yes.
It is simple.
re-install anything that does not work properly.
