I'd temper that a bit: to begin with, waifu is good at very specific things, but most importantly, it only does fixed, power of 2 scaling multipliers, as the name implies.

In this case, a single scaling pass with a decent algorithm will probably yield better results than a waifu upscale followed by a downscale.

I've posted my usual ImageMagick processing pass a couple of times over here, if someone is looking for inspiration (the most recent time must have been in one of the FBInk threads) .

I have a brand new Kindle Paperwhite I'm trying to jailbreak, but I am getting stuck on Step 4 (jailbreaking the device).

Firmware: 5.10.0.2
Serial: G000 T611

I install the 5.10.0.2 firmware included in this post, add the update blocking folder, and then download the "K5 Factory JailBreak (Factory FW)" under the "Packages targeting the Kindle 5 " header in the referenced post. When I execute the ";installHtml" command, it looks like it runs, but I never get the "you are now jailbroken" new book added to my library.

Any ideas where I am going wrong? Thank you!

@ipitythefool101: Most likely badly unpacked. You want to end up with an *untouched* main-htmlviewer.tar.gz archive at the root of your device.

Not the tarball from my snapshot, not an unpacked version of htmlviewer, and nothing in between either.

Possible to JB 5.9.4?

I have an almost new Paperwhite. It's not the 2018, very new waterproof one, but the previous model (version 9?). The serial number is G090 G105 **** ****

Before seeing this thread I stupidly updated the firmware to 5.9.4. Is it possible to JB the device?

I've tried using the factory install to put 10.0.1 on it but it doesn't recognise that as a valid update. This might be because it's registered and I didn't do a reset before trying? Or it might be something else.

I realise this must have been asked before - sorry - I did look for a specific thread. Any help JBing the device will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

[Edited on advice, to remove the last eight digits of the serial number]

Thank you so much.

Followed the instructions and it appears to have worked. FYI I didn't deregister or reset the device before JB and all of the books/settings survived.

I haven't installed KUAL and MPRI because I'm not sure that I will need them. All I want is to change the screensavers to something I want. Can you please let me know how I do this?

Thanks again.

You'll need them, then Python & the ScreenSavers hack from the Snapshots .

WELL! That's . . . just . .. perfect!

All installed and working. Thank you so very much for all of your hard work in making this JB happen - and for those excellent packages.

I'm a happy man
