Question How hard is it to jailbreak?

I am pretty sure I have a PW 3. Does anyone know if this version can be jailbroken?

Can anyone tell me how difficult it is to jailbreak? Looking at instructions here, it seems rather overwhelming. https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/5_x...#Step-by-Step:

It's been a while since I did it, but all I had to do was locate the right update_jailbreak.bin file for my Kindle model, drag it into my Kindle root folder, then unplug the Kindle from the computer and update via Homepage/menu/settings/menu/update Kindle. If update Kindle is greyed out, you have the wrong bin file. Try again. It's easy.

Thanks for that, it's helpful.

It is only when a jailbreak release for a Kindle is available, that the user can make the device go back to an earlier version update?

Since Amazon started their war on jailbreaking, jb has been a thing of the past. You can still do a hardware jailbreak if you're handy with a soldering gun, but it's not particularly easy.
