There is a factory firmware for 5.9.6.1 which would allow for rejailbreaking without having to open it up again for a serial jailbreak. This would allow me to reset the device in the future if I needed to for some reason.

Anyone know the most stable firmware version where all "hacks" work? I am currently on the latest (jailbroken) kindle voyage version. Side buttons doesn't work properly in koreader and also Booklet doesn't work that great. Thanks in advance

Just to clarify. The available factory firmware 5.9.6.1 is only for the PW3.

On PW2, 5.8.7 is the highest one can go and still be able to do a factory fw downgrade.

I tried this on my Voyage. All worked but after rebooting it doesn't boot properly. Connecting the device with USB also doesn't work. Has anybody a solution?

You tried WHAT?
Do you mean you tried the firmware from the PW3?
Or, just what do you mean? Write your reply in German if you prefer, somebody here can help.

Success with PW3 Japan 32GB 5.12.2 --> 5.9.6.1

I successfully did this with a PW3 Japan "Manga" Edition 32GB Kindle that I purchased with 5.12.2 installed. I did the serial jailbreak and hotfix. I needed to install the Kual Booklet (coplate) and then could install the rescue pack and cowards rescue pack. Followed the rest of the instructions in the first post. Immediately reinstalled the hotfix after downgrading to make sure it was current but I suspect this wasn't necessary.
