That one is not downgradeable.
Isn't the below a successful result from a PW3 on 5.8.10.1 - or am I missing something here?

I followed the directions in the first post, with a few notes:

* Used 5.7.4 for downgrade, since there were no reliable links for 5.8.9.0.1.
* Used the nomax hotfix.
* Updated to 5.8.11 after the jailbreak, at which point the Kindle required me to re-register with Amazon before use. While it was reset and on 5.7.4, it worked without being registered.

The only huiccup I ran into was forgetting to reset before doing the downgrade, then resetting after the downgrade. ;installHtml didn't do anything. After a second downgrade (really a side-grade, since it was from 5.7.4 to 5.7.4), everything ran as expected.

So for anyone in a similar situation, things look promising! Thanks everyone for all the great work done here.

That is the only one I have seen and since there is no additional information I would be careful.

There's a few more examples - but also examples of failures (My previous brick included) but as knc1 mentioned, there's no conclusive pattern as to what is causing the bricks vs successful flashes.

Yeah I'll wait it out until we have more information, can't risk a second brick as I'm pretty sure the store I purchased from wont replace it a second time.
