Can't jailbreak PW3 Paperwhite 3 2015 what am I doing wrong?

Paperwhite 3 2015 what am I doing wrong?

Following the wiki https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/5_x_Jailbreak

Original Kindle firmware installed = 5.8.1

Step 1: Download PW3 factory_PW3_5.9.6.1_initial firmware
Step 2: # Home -> Menu -> Settings -> Menu -> Update Your Kindle # Confirm # Wait
Step 3: Transfer main-htmlviewer.tar.gz to main directory
Step 4: In search type ;installHtml
Step 5: Transfer Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.16.N_install.bin
Step 6: # Home -> Menu -> Settings -> Menu -> Update Your Kindle # Confirm # Wait

Upon restart I cannot downgrade the firmware (I want to go back to 5.8.1)
It says Update Error An invalid update file has been loaded onto your device.

I cannot install KUAL-v2.7.21-g3928582-20190724 -> it never shows up in MY LIBRARY

What did I do wrong?
Thanks in advance for an helpful tips

1) Yes, you cannot downgrade just as update with a bin file (the only way is to overwrite the system partitions via ssh).
2) You should install KUAL (coplate).

Right, install (copy) mrpi at first, and then KUAL coplate via mrpi.

OK so I downloaded MrPI kual-mrinstaller-1.7.N-r16572.tar.xz
Unzipped it and transfer the 2 directories Extensions and MRPackages to the root directory of the Kindle.

Then I take the KUAL coplate file: Update_KUALBooklet_57ac50e_install.bin
and I also copy it to the root directory????
What do I do with the KUAL.cfg file


Then what do I do after I copy the files over to the kindle?

Ignore the download links and just use the latest files from NiLuJe's Snapshots.
