Thanks for the info somehow I missed the part where it says I could run ""Booklet" variant, or the "KDK-2" variant" when I was on 5.6.5 and I only tried the KDK-2 variant. When that didn't work I thought it was because I hadn't updated my fw, but that may have been a mistake.

Wow. So I got extremely lucky.
How bad is this? Is it a kinda "Something is going wrong and I yet have to find what it is" situation, or is it something along the line "Something is horribly wrong, I checked what it is and it's beyond our possibilities to fix it"?

@radec: That wasn't necessarily bad thinking (there were a few specific cases of Kindlet being broken on release then fixed). Don't recall which devices/FW ranges were affected though.

But jumping to the latest version was indeed massively overkill (and potentially fatal).

@Ruskie_it: That'd be the latter (R.I.P.).

@NiLuJe ok thanks for the info. at least it seems that jailbreak stuck through the update. Now I'll just keep reading through the threads for more info before i try installing KUAL, not looking to brick the device.

@NiLuJe,
Is there a way to stop a python script, which was ran by KUAL?
Such as LibrarianSync, for example?

Also, how can I show current output lines at the bottom of the screen? Like LibrarianSync or MRPI do.

Thanks in advance!

@mergen3107: In a shell, sure. Ideally over SSH, but I'd assume something like kterm would do in a pinch.

Both MRPI & LS use FBInk to display stuff on screen (LS via the Python bindings, MRPI via the CLI tool).
Note that MRPI now bundles its own FBInk build, but that shouldn't be necessary for text-only use cases.

My KT4 got updated to FW 5.12.2 (thanks to the wifey ).

The hotfix won't install anymore, and if I try reinstalling MRPI/KUAL the ;log mrpi command won't do anything anymore, it will just search for the string.

R.I.P. jailbreak :'(

The back light is bad, I can see it from here.
Get Amazon to exchange your old one for something that can't be any worse.
And next time, have the wife exchanged for another model.

I already did it once for this particular Kindle

At least I managed to get all my collections on it through Calibre, there's that...
