Today it's back out of stock, and also is no longer shown in the navbar. It does show up in the main Kindle landing page. Before it has still showed in the navbar, just with no price listed.

The Oasis 9th gen, 32gb is available as used very good condition, with ads for $145. There are TWO left in stock. I got mine today and it looks brand new. Not a scratch.
I set it up and I am going to test the battery life on it.
It's listed as ad-supported, but in my device list on Amazon it say "ad free".

Act quickly because there are only two left.

Edit: six hours later now they are all gone.
You have my condolences. Enjoy having your side loaded eBooks deleted.

I thought the Kindle exists to delete side loaded eBooks so you are forced to buy eBooks form Amazon.

The International Kindle Oasis with 8GB is available so everyone around the world can have side loaded eBooks removed by Amazon.

That would depend on what version firmware comes with the Oasis.

Jon, when someone posts about buying a new Kobo, do you reply "You have my condolences. Enjoy having your databases corrupted."?

True, but it means you're not definitely stuck with Amazon, and maybe you can get ahold of that information before buying. And it's not impossible that a new jailbreak will be developed that works with all existing firmware--I mean with the latest jailbreak, up until November all Kindles could be jailbroken.

And by up until November, I mean up until the November update, which not all Kindles were likely to get, for one reason or another (already shipped out of the factory etc.)
