When I was in Chinese Demo mode, I did it just like I did the English Demo mode. Navigated through, go to the Resell, and after you tap through it will reboot back into English normal mode (or I assume whatever the default language is for your device).

After I successfully connected the usb again and copied the files over again at the power screen, when it booted, it booted back into Chinese Demo mode.

Navigated through and used Google translate on my phone to find the Resell button.
Ran the hotfix after that step. Booted into normal English mode.

Was able to install KUAL and got KOReader installed as well.
Now just need to find how to stop updates. I'd like to keep wireless enabled so I can use OPDS.

Edit: So apparently the renameotabin extension still works as it did before. So far no updates and have been online for a while now. No update.
How to install kual? I've jailbroken and installed hotfix, after copying kual install hotfix Kindle says update not supported.
Please help?

I followed the guide to the letter, but I can't change the language and turn on airplane-mode after I finished updating the hotfix.
I'm using a PPW4.

I have helped people install this on 2 PW5s already the common theme is that it worked best on 5.16.2.1 so update to this version if you want to jailbreak

Hello,
i tried it again, but i dont get the Kindle PW5 (Signature, 5.16.2.1) mounted after resell. It connects, but i dont have a drive to copy files to. After selecting chinese language, it boots up without any log output.
Any idea how to get it work?

@hartleyshc, how did you manage to install KUAL and Koreader?
I've tried over mrpi but I had an error like "Coudn't mount system RO"
