You are attempting to use the procedure of installing Amazon update packages.

Also re-install any other add-in that that seems to be broke (it probably is).

Once you have done all of that -
Then read the "Troubleshooting" section of the first post, tell us each of those things you have done and the result of each.
I follow the Mobileread instructions using MRPI to Install the .bin files. I reinstall the Phython but I had to put it into the mrpackages and then use MRPI on Kual Launcher. It's working now, even tough sometimes it shows the wrong book cover.

Great.

Now open, read, and follow the troubleshooting directions.
Tell us which of those you do and the result of each.

That is the same as writing,
quote:
"I had to put it into the /mrpackages"
because that is the directions for re-installing.

All the *.bin packages of OURS has to be put into the /mrpackages directory and use MrPI.
Only Amazon packages use UYK.

You could also use the menu bar command, it does the same thing, runs MrPI.

mrpi destroys packages

First of all new to jailbreak. Glad to see thread still active.

Jailbreaked. Added python next. Tried linkss and no. Got KUAL with extensions and MRinstaller by following the thread. Got KOReader next by putting KOReader folder and .bin in mrpackages. Or folder was in root... Tried linkss and LibrarianSync, neither worked. ran unistall.bin for both and tried again. It says destroying packages before reboot. Obviously, I'm missing something

Read the readme file on linkss. There's alot of requirements more than just putting the .bin and running KUAL. Do I need start considering running KindleTool? Or did I cause a glitch somewhere along the line? This is my 2nd jailbreak attempt on it.

the only thing you are missing is to get your add-in packages from NiLuJe's snapshot thread and to follow directions exactly and completely.
If you can't do that, you should not be modifying your Kindle, following directions is the bare minimum skill required.
