This is the only way to keep our jailbreak in place. So you a choice to never again sync or lose your jailbreak.
I tried to install the last hotfix (oct-11), got error 007.

My JB is lost forever?

Or until there is a way to jailbreak in a future firmware. But yes, gone from 5.12.2.

If you don't have 5.12.2, then keeping WiFi off is the only way to keep the jailbreak.

But, if you have 5.12.2 and a jailbreak somehow gets found and you get updated to a newer version, you could be screwed. It's up to you.

From what I've been reading, it's very unlikely there will be a JB for this version. I'm with no computer nearby but when I do I'll try to flash the factory firmware 5.10.1.3. I don't think it will work, but it doesn't hurt to try.

Also, I saw someone saying something about entering the Diags mode, this is only possible with some rescue package or something like that, right? I hadn't it installed, only KOreader.

So far I tried only to flash the newest hotfix and got error 007.

Besides trying flashing the factory firmware, is there something else I could try?

And if you do manage to go back, you'll never be able to turn on WIFi and sync.

Thank you. There seems to be variations on which device/5.12.x combinations ignore the blocking directory.

Jailbreak lost on PW4 after 5.12.2 update

The same. I lost my JB on Kindle Paperwhite 4 after 5.12.2 update.
Code:
;log mrpi
behaves as a generic search (shows kindle store results).

Hotfixes mentioned in this thread are not helping - both invalid software update packages.

The Hotfix from the snapshots page fails with James Bond's "update error: 007".

Thanks, @knc1

I've posted the results to that thread. Unfortunately, they are not good in my case. And now I'm starting to understand why you've created the "firewall" extension for kindle =)
