IIRC, it was also there on earlier 4.x versions.

It has certainly been there a lot longer than Windows10 has been in release.
Yes, I knew it was visible on 4.x but I never knew that you can access it just fine on 5.x

OH, I understand now.
Your viewing options must have changed sometime back around Windows7 and stayed changed anytime you updated.
Sneaky.

This is probably something that I should not be posting in public, but I do own a copy of Windows10.
Not something I have any experience with, but I do have it, in fact, I have two Windows10 licenses.
I recently purchased some used equipment that came with it pre-installed.
And it was just as easy to keep as to delete it, so I kept it.

But for me it is a situation similar to having a socially disgraceful deformity that one is embarrassed to mention in public. So lets continue to pretend that I never met that OS.

TBH, Windows 10 is a really nice release. I'm participating Windows Insider with the Skip Ahead ring and I really love everything about it. I don't know why everybody hates it. The Threshold release (Builds 10024-10586) was really bad. Yes, I hated it too. But ever since the Anniversary Update (Builds 14393+) everything became way better. Windows 7 is.... not that good. I really loved Windows 8 & 8.1 the way they were - with the Start Screen. But everybody else stayed on Windows 7.

Ask Google for your file.

Believe me, knc1 has very good reasons to (temporarily) remove them from his private cloud space.

If in doubt whether the download you've found is okay or not, check the MD5 sum linked in posting #1 (the very short archive file "adrive_md5_all.zip")

Try using this unofficial link

Keep in mind though, if you are running firmware 5.8.8+ you won't be able to downgrade.

Ask Google for the full filename.
It has hundreds of answers.

Why would you open the file?
It is a binary image file, use it as posted, wherever it is posted.

You obviously are not reading or understanding the directions if you think you have to "open" the file.
That is the initial requirement, to be able to read and understand the directions.
Without that skill you have no reason to be attempting to modify your Kindle.
Save yourself a bunch of future grief, stop trying to do this now.

Greetings. What is your primary language? Or here, let me help you.
In Google search engine put your kindle nickname jailbreak file. That will bring up hundreds of websites.

The file extension is not mentioned until step 8. I did not get to step 8 because the files in your FAQ are not preset with no reference nor edit. I was still "preparing" my Kindle... Maybe an edit in the instructions may help future 'newbies'?

Thanks again.
