Damn, please don't tell me it's that easy...

I thought it was enough matching the first four numbers, no mater the rest.

So just updating to the very FW version 5.12.2.2 shoud do the magic...
Ok, I'm on it and I'll post the result in order to help people with the same issue.

Many thanks!

Trying this on a Voyage 3G, and I'm a little perplexed. When I do the initial reset, it immediately activates the Cellular antenna and contacts Amazon and forces me to login. All of the following steps seem to be off because my content is then available. (no getting started, etc...) I can't figure out how to bypass the amazon login. I'm not sure if this is the source of my problems or if I'm bumbling through some other part of the process.
Any advice?
Thanks,
JP

I also applied the jailbreak to my 3G voyage, I can confirm it’s possible. As far as I can tell there is no way to bypass the Amazon login, except maybe driving deep in the woods but it is possible to apply the jailbreak even after being logged in.

I found I didn’t have to do all the steps in the description (can’t remember which ones however as I also jailbroke a 3G Oasis, which also didn’t go exactly as per the description but in a different way, and I’m not sure what were the exact steps for each device), but overall if you follow the “flow” of the instructions you’ll eventually get it right. Both devices gave me the application error when trying to sideload the jb; you may have to reboot and enter the demo mode again without connecting to USB. As far as I can tell the Help & User Guide -> Getting Started menu item is available regardless of whether the kindle is in demo mode or not, or registered at Amazon or not, so it’s not clear why you didn’t have it; I’d just give it another go and go with the flow

Good luck!

Once updated, everything went just fine. Already jailbroken.

Many thanks for your work and efforts!

Jailbroken, but took an update

My PW3 which was jailbroken a while ago just took an update to 5.14.2. KUAL won't open, so I ran the jailbreak hotfix. Still KUAL won't open. Is there anything I can do to get my jailbreak back? (This new method for <= 5.14.3 looks too complicated for me to try at this point.) Without being able to open KUAL, I am unable to reinstall any of the packages...any thoughts? I rebooted a couple of times. All of the files are still there, but no KUAL and my screensavers aren't running...

After a firmware update you have to reinstall KUAL and pretty much everything else.

You might want to look into the KUAL extension to rename OTA binaries so as to prevent firmware updates and also follow the thread on the firmware down grade tehnique that is currently being developed.
