G000PP -> which is a PW4.
Ref: https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kindle_Serial_Numbers

Which is one of the "Androidized" Kindle models.
Meaning, among other things:


* It is not a "dual boot" system like most Kindles.
Trying to load the address of the diags system is sort of pointless, since these models do not have that older sort of "dual boot" system.


* The system is now locked as seen by the customer.
Currently, there is no known way to unlock the serial port access.


* You are trying to access the version 5.12.1, where the most recently known firmware version on that model that can be jailbroken is 5.10.1.3
That information is included in the first post of this thread. You could help yourself by re-reading that first post.


* The most recent build of Kindletool can be found in NiLuJe's snapshots thread.
Ref: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=225030
And, it is already built, ready to use on the most common PC OS devices.


* There is one (or more) threads on this forum concerning the things which have been tried to deal with the "Androidized" systems.
Ref: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=312489
Which is a show-stopper for the firmware version on your device.

But that is one of the threads here about the "Androidized" systems.

@Skipwire: Ohkay, then everything's going according to plan then (as far as KindleTool is concerned, at least). Note that the output is now slightly less confusing on master (since, like, a few hours ago ).

Also, you need a non-shallow clone to get a proper version string .

Now, what exactly were you trying to achieve? If it's a jailbreak, PM @ilovejedd, she can help with a PW4.

With regards to this, include the ff in the PM.

Spoiler:
PSA

I might be able to help with jailbreak for the waterproof PW4/Paperwhite 4/Paperwhite (2018)/Paperwhite (10th generation) only.

Those interested, please PM me with the following details about your device:
  1. First 12 characters of serial number (gives us the HW model, revision and manufacture date)
  2. Country
  3. Retailer/Store
  4. Color
  5. Storage
  6. with or without Special Offers
  7. Wi-Fi or Cellular
  8. FW version and stock or updated?
Thanks!

So my 5.12.1 Oasis 2 (saw firmware on the sellers page) is basically $@%! out of luck when it comes to jailbreaking? That's a shame, I'd love a better way to organize on the Kindle like the collections plug-in.
