Jailbreak Kindle PW3 5.9.4?

Hi,

So been reading this forum for a time , to see if I can jailbreak my kindle. It's not brand new, I mean it was updated by amazon to 5.9.4 a while ago.

Can I still jailbreak it? with this method :

Also, should be registred, and ad free, or doesn't matter?

!! Put the OTA blocking directory name at the topmost, visible, level of user USB storage.
Do It Now !

Manually down load 5.9.6.1 and update your Kindle to that version.
https://s3.amazonaws.com/firmwaredow...te_5.9.6.1.bin

Then follow directions for 5.9.6.1 in the thread you linked to.

Being registered and ad-free only matters if you have to recover from a bad firmware update.
So it is your own choice.
Since your device is now out of warranty (for a free exchange if bricked) ...

I already did for the OTA blocking folder.
Also, It's already registred.

I don't get ad when it's on screensaver mode, how should I know if it's readlly ad free?

KindleLazy is dependent on the kernel version.
The kernel version is dependent on the firmware version.

So if the kernel modules and other software parts needed by KindleLazy have not already been built for your model/firmware version combination ....
Then somebody (perhaps yourself) will have to build them for your combination.

Just to confirm that KindleLazy is working on my PW3, 9.5.4

I just purchased this cheap remote control and it worked.
