Cannot get kindle 5 touch to accept packages no mater what i do

I've been beating my head on this thing for three days now At the moment my kindle is 5.3.7.3 stock I flashed to 5.1.2 with Kubrick and updated via amazons normal method. I've followed the instructions in the readme and unzipped the kindle 5.4 jailbreak zip onto the root of my storage then done the update. It seems to work fine and the jailbreak screen pops up. KUAL even works if I put it on there manually but no matter what I do bins put on the root of the storage is deleted the moment I unmount the filesystem and the update button stays grayed out forever. some things like the kindle jailbreak bins work. I've tried using mrpackage installer but it just reports back "package script failed (1), moving on" Does anyone have any suggestions? I have a B011 kindle

Can you provide a log so that we have a better idea what failed? Or even links to the packages you are using. Could be many things e.g. a package targeting a different device.

It looks like you are using the correct package for a K5 Touch, which is a common stumbling block (you should add your K5 to your profile).

Logs should give us more to go on. Look for update logs in the /var/local/log folder and MRPI logs in the MRPI extensions folder.

There's a vague possibility UYK is broken on that older FW because of the sheer amount of devices being supported in current packages, but I couldn't really say more without system logs.

The recommended procedure is to use MRPI anyway, so, eh.

I can't recall the last time I tried UYK on a Touch (and I don't even recall which FW version mine is running ).
