Yeah, I though I might encounter that issue... I thought about making it run every 5 minutes so it will go whenever I'm reading, and be done with it...

Hi all.

I recently upgraded my jailbroken PW1 to v5.6.1.1 and I couldn't ssh after that, nor via USB cable nor via Wifi. The reason I wanted to update is to be able to sync the articles I send to my kindle by sending an email to my kindle address. This is my major use case for my Kindle so I can't afford not having this unfortunately.

Is this a known issue? Appreciate the help, once again!

Every time you update the update wipes out all the utilities that require jailbreak to use.

If you haven't installed the hotfix the jailbreak is also wiped out.

If you did install the hotfix before updating, you need to reinstall USBnetworking, etc.

Maybe you need to re-read the JB instructions which document the above.

Hi. My kindle paperwhite 2 (2013) was updated by mistake from 5.10.3 to 5.12.2 and I have lost the jailbreak. Will the hotfix work to regain jailbreak?

Update to 5.13.5 with JailBrake

Is it safe for jailbreak to upgrade system from 5.13.4 to 5.13.5 after using the last hotfix or should I wait a little while?

It's a terrible idea, but nobody's complained so far (I think).
