Unhappy Assistance with a kindle keyboard wifi

I just grabbed one yesterday, it has firmware 3.4.2 on it, I can't find a jailbreak anywhere, nor any guides, can anyone assist? To be honest, I just want to be able to organize my books and read manga on it :S

The second thing you have to do is to jail break your device.

The first thing you have to do is find the jail break listing.

On thread index page of this forum, just below the second blue bar -
A row of filter setting boxes -
Left box, select 'tools' from drop down list -
Right box, 'show threads', just click it -
Scroll among the filtered listing of thread titles, find one about "NiLuJe's snapshots of ...", click that one -

You are now on the page listing the most recent of recent -
First section heading (Packages targeting ... K3) -
First item listed (Kindle 2/DX/DXG/3 jail break) -
Get that one.
(You'll need some tool on your pc that can un-archive the xz format archive.)

To get to the original thread -
See last entry of that first listing: 'Legacy Hacks' ? Click that link.
Follow directions in first post and in any ReadMe titled document in the archive.

= = = =

Once you have that done -
Then you can find the manga reader posted here.
A bit of a learning curve, but you will probably want more than just that over time.

I assume that's the one? When it's installed, will it still show kindle 3.4.2 as the firmware or will it display something custom? Sorry for all the questions, I used to know how to do this but its been yrs.

For the legacy methinks?

I ran the update but can't tell if it took :S

I feel like a n00b

That all seems correct.

No change to the firmware version that is displayed.

I don't recall what feedback the K3 jail break provides on success.

Try to install one of the update_*.bin packages for your K3.
If the "update your kindle" selection is gray'd out, then either the package isn't for your device or your not jail broken.
