Knowing what was on it before the update is only of interest if you where using the OTA blocking directory.

It is not likely there will be a jail break for 5.9.2 (at least, not in my lifetime).
So put the OTA blocking directory name on the device when you get it.

The point is to keep it on a version that can be jail broken, even if you do not intend to jail break for a few days, weeks, months, years, ...

Thank you. I have initiated an exchange and should be getting the replacement in a few days. Can you give me the link to how to put on the OTA blocking so I have it ready when I receive the new Oasis?

Thanks again for the insights.

I have edited the instructions in the first post, but I will put them here too:


Instructions on how to block updates, but still connect to WIFI.
See also: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=219986


Plug your kindle into usb before connectiong to wifi
Create a FOLDER at the root of your USB drive named "update.bin.tmp.partial"
That is it.

This has worked in the past, all the way up to the most recent update before 5.9.2, though there is no guarantee it will keep working.

Thank you. I just placed that in my 6" Oasis and will do it when i get my replacement. Hoping and fingers crossed that they won't send me a new Oasis with the 5.9.2 update already on it.

Also here:
https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/MyTestPage
Do "Required" (Section 1.1 and 1.2)

Also available as a *.pdf:
https://github.com/knc1/KOA2_Jailbre..._Jailbreak.pdf

While waiting -
Also review the "Recommended" (Section 2) section.

= = = = =

For people who might be interested in editing the directions, the "Master" file has the extension: *.lyx
All other formats are generated either by LyX (*.tex, *.pdf) or Pandoc (from the *.tex).

The (open) "Master" is here:
https://github.com/knc1/KOA2_Jailbreak

If you don't have LyX, get that here:
https://www.lyx.org/Download

And if you want other formats (using the *.tex as input), such as MediaWiki (our Wiki markup), Markdown (several flavors, including github), or even AsciiDoc (among dozens of others, including two flavors of epub), get Pandoc here:
https://pandoc.org/installing.html

If from the blurbs on LyX and Pandoc you get the impression you have just entered the real world of technical documentation, you are correct.
See:
https://www.lyx.org/Screenshots
And:
https://pandoc.org/demos.html

Haha. I deserved that. I went back to the beginning of the thread and read it more carefully. Thank you for all the help. Looks like my replacement comes on Tuesday.

Like before you load it up with books.

Hi, new here but want to help out. Are we still looking for virgin disk images? If things go as expected I'm getting my fancy new 32gb, no ads, WiFi + cellular in tomorrow. US shipped and sold, arriving registered. Read the posts to current but it seems like updates have been less frequent so I thought I should check in.
Edit: Device Arrived
serial: G000 S1
Firmware: Kindle 5.9.0.6 (3234010012)
