I can't install Coolreader, every times I copy file *.bin to Kindle root , it disappear ( I can't update my Kindle then to install i)
I change to use KUAL to install from Mr parkage, it also fail
I also can't use Kindlemenu and some others app like "change screensaver"
It mean those apps didn't compatible with my PW3 5.9.6.1 jailbroken
I only use KOreader

CoolReader does not require installation, just unpack the archive to the root of the reader.

Yes. You will have to download from GitHub and copy LibrarianSync folder to extensions folder on the kindle.

Side note

First of all, very impressed by the work done. I can't begin to imagine how hard it must've been to make this available.


Although, as a PW3 owner myself who was inattentive when his kindle updated to 6.9.7, I am just wondering, should I hang tight and follow the forums for a method that could work for me or will it be a while longer still?

And again, congratulations you guys!

Can confirm another success using this method with stock 5.8.11 on a PW3, registered US. No need for reset. Went smoothly!

Thank you for putting this method together--very excited!

Future or potential future jail breaks are NEVER discussed in public prior to actual release.

Amazon has an entire department of full time, paid, programmers.
Part of their job is to prevent user alteration of their devices.
It would be a really big mistake to give them (they read this site) advanced information on a not-yet-released jail break.

5.8.9.2 is a special case. You need to update to customer firmware first before installing the factory firmware. I think there might a couple other versions like this, too.

Most customer firmware versions between 5.8.9.2 - 5.9.6.1 should be fine but to be sure, install customer fw 5.9.6.1 (~200MB, just download directly from Amazon) before you install factory fw 5.9.6.1 (~700MB).
