Hello!
Thank you for this tutorial!

Im not sure if i missed something, but i don't know how to access shell after completing all steps...

Anyone have an idea?

My main (first) goal after jailbreak is make possible to install custom screensaver images.

If all you want is a shell, try kterm https://github.com/bfabiszewski/kterm/releases/tag/v2.6 .

An alternative is to install USBNetworking and configure ssh access.

Can I use this techniques to Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition 32GB version?
Also, After jailbreak, Is it possible to play audio file, like mp3 or m4a by using headphone?

Only if your current firmware version is in the correct range,

Kindles have not had headphone jacks for many years.

Assuming you mean Bluetooth headphones you would need to install the Sox Media Player extension after you have done the jailbreak and installed KUAL. You can play any Sox supported media which includes mp3 but not aac/m4a files. You can also play supported internet audio streams.

Alright.

Is jail breaking a 10th gen KT on 5.15.1.1 still a no go?

See the thread on LanguageBreak, this one won't work at that firmware level.

Does this hack now replace the one in this thread, or are they different?

Did you even read the first post in either thread?

WatchThis precedes languageBreak. Which one to use depends on what your current firmware version is.

Long-time 5.14.2 jailbroken KOA2 user, is there any benefit to updating to 5.16.2.1.1 + new jailbreak? E.g., any benefits to the newer firmware, or just sit tight at 5.14.2?

To follow-up: I updated KO2 to 5.16.2.1.1, the jailbreak persisted (good). The steps I took to update everything from my old jailbreak to the new(er) firmware, KUAL, etc., were:
- update to the official firmware (copied it to the root of the kindle, then rebooted, the 'update your kindle' option never showed up).
- update mrpackages (by replacing extensions/MRinstaller with the newest version, I hadn't updated this since the original jailbreak)
- update hotfix - I did this by putting the hotfix bin in /mrpackages and using ;log mrpi. The update your kindle option didn't work (error after reboot/during install)
- update KUAL - installed by using the coplate (non-hotfix) version and ;log mrpi. Note it installed successfully, then gave a r/o error, rebooted, and it was fine.

A few errors along the way and trial and error, but AFAIK the jailbreak is working, KUAL is working, and we're solid.

I have have a KOA2 with 5.14.2 firmware that I'm trying to jailbreak.

I got as far as the post-jailbreak step where you're supposed to install the "hotfix". I copied "Update_hotfix_watchthis_custom.bin" to the root of the Kindle storage but I can't run "Update your kindle" as it is permanently greyed out. I've tried re-starting but that hasn't helped.

Any ideas? Thanks
