You could be right on this. But I won't help on general principle even if I could.

What are the first 8 characters of the serial number?

If you did extensive research, I don't see how you failed to come across the sticky thread:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=320564
the first post there provides all the background for jailbreaking, including whether any given kindle can be jailbroken.

Warning: By necessity, it has a lot of information, You need to read carefully. Each step gives information needed for the next step. You have already asked a question that was already answered in a 2 line reply to a previous question of yours.

Hint: If the current firmware version is too high, that kindle can not be jailbroken.

Actually, he is asking if it's possible to change the serial number. Jailbreaking was a side question, in so far as it would help him to change the serial number.

You won't get help with that here. That should be clear to you by now.

Only bad things are bound to happen if you were to change the serial (if it even is possible).

You will save yourself and potentially some other random, uninvolved third party a lot of headache if you just send it back to amazon and have them deal with the problem.

Just call Amazon about the problem. Nobody is going to help you change the serial number even if it is possible.

Would jailbreaking my Kindle fix this issue?

No. I really think you'll need to send it back to Amazon. But since it's their fault, I suggest you see if you can get them to pay for it.

It's been ten days since you first posted. If you had sent it back to Amazon then you would not have much more time to wait for a working device.
