Was your hotfix file dated Oct. 7th or newer?
If not, you may have an out-of-date hotfix file.
See: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...&postcount=562


And if none of that helps ...
Try being a bit more descriptive than: "does not work".
What did you try, how did you try it, and what was (where) the result(s)?

kindle automatic roboot, I try run ";log runme" from search bar to launch kterm(it works before update fireware), nothing happens

kindle screen display "can not find ';log runme' "

@dhdurgee: Serial access in and of itself has no bearing on what the initrd updater will accept .

But it does make the DIY approach of manually flashing an update over diags potentially feasible, yeah (with the caveat, as you mentioned, that diags has to live in a dedicated partition, and that you need to be able to boot and log into it).

@Amazon
I paid the money, got the kindle, why do you still continue to do disgusting things in an attempt to control my equipment?

Another seed which against the Amazon closed system was buried.

Never buy a Kindle if you mind using it without being jailbroken. Because when you buy a Kindle, you could end up with a firmware that cannot be jailbroken. And obviously you have. I suggest you return your Kindle if you can since you seem to be rather upset.

I have chosen the linux os course, I will buy an old version Kindle from ebay, study a better way to jailbreak , then publish it on the Internet.

If your Kindle can run firmware 5.12.2, keep WiFi off and never ever sync again or someday you will get the new firmware and lose your jailbreak.

This is the only way to keep our jailbreak in place. So you a choice to never again sync or lose your jailbreak.
