PW3 - which kindle-usbnetwork-* do I need?

I'm on the path to Debian on my PW3 and I've got as far as KUAL. Next is usbnet and I'm a little stuck as I keep only finding posts for usbnet on non-touch devices. https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kin...USB_Networking says to read https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=186645 to get usbnet and that references kindle-usbnet-0.21.N.zip which seems to be quite old given I can find kindle-usbnetwork-0.57.N-k4.zip - but only for non-touch.

Duh. The referenced kindle-usbnet-0.21.N.zip works fine and is the latest version for PW3.

If you can't find it, your looking in the wrong place:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=225030
You know, the first post of the thread you where told in the jb directions to always check first when looking for something.

See the section titled:
Packages targeting the Kindle 5 (Touch/PW1/PW2/KT2/KV/PW3/KOA/KT3/KOA2/PW4):
Hint: That is every touch device ever built by Amazon.

Thanks for your help.

The problem is that there are many wrong places to look and lots of out of date information here. I did spend a day on this before posting originally. I also spent another half hour trying to find the trail of threads which started with the Jailbreak thread and led to the post above which has an outdated kindle-usbnet-0.21.N.zip. But I failed to find all the right posts again and after half an hour I'm going to give up debugging.
