Jailbreaking a J9G29R. possible?

Hi there, I'm new to kindle I have a jailbroken nook that has serve me well for many many years but it is falling apart, the plastic is disintegrating.

In any case i use it for ePUD, PDFs etc, if i bought a kindle book i would run it by calibre and load it on the nook.

Amazon has a 8gb kindle refurb J9G29R on sale for $40. but I would like it to be a simple reader disconnected from big brother.

can this be done? Thanks in advance

You don't have to connect any e-ink Kindle to wifi at all--they will all work without being registered, no need to jailbreak. You will lose the ability to create and use collections, but you can still sideload books and read with no issue. All books will have to be in an Amazon format (or pdf), but you can easily convert using Calibre.

If you are set on reading your books in epub format, then yes...you will have to jailbreak. It looks like the "J9G29R" is a 10th gen basic Kindle, so whether or not you can jailbreak will depend on the firmware version. See this thread for more information.

I hope this helps

However azw3 conversion for Kindle from epub is fine for USB transfer using Calibre. If it isn't then the epub needs fixed and that can be done with Calibre too.

If you get it with firmware 5.14.3 or greater, then every time you open menu popup message will appears telling you that device is not registered.
