So is someone else posting on his behalf? I'm confused.

Looks like KNC1 is not receiving further Pms.

I would appreciate it if anyone who has access to the password for the KOA2 firmware would PM it to me. I have a KOA2 from amazon.de running 5.9.2.0.1 that I would like to try to jailbreak.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the PM.

So I tried the jb, and procedure not working on KOA2 running 5.9.2.0.1 that is supposed to be from amazon.de. I bought KOA2 from amazon.de through a third party, and I wonder if I was sold a bill of goods (i.e., KOA2 sold to me at a mark-up actually was NOT from amazon.de).

How do we know that this jb procedure works for KOA2 from amazon.de? Links/sources?

If it turns out that this jb procedure should work on a KOA2 from amazon.de, I will be pursuing a refund from this third party. Does anyone know of a way for a US-based buyer to purchase a KOA2 from the actual amazon.de site?

Thanks in advance for any help.

@dinlaca: What made you think it would work to begin with?

Assume third-party means *NOT* factory fresh, because (possibly mistakenly in the KOA2 case, jury's still out) thinking that it'd work on a factory-fresh device, regardless of version, is the only vague explanation I could think of, since 5.9.2 != 5.9.0.

I saw the "unless" from this post earlier in the thread, and the further response on the next page.

While you were away from mobileread there were numerous speculations by respected members that Kindles from amazon.de were special, possibly because of German consumer protection laws. These speculations seemed to be on firmer ground than the "all new Kindles" speculations. But it seems neither has been confirmed and that negative reports are starting to come in. On the other hand, hope will probably spring eternal, or until it is quashed.

I was under the impression that mostly applied to the PW3? (Or was it the KT3 for the German case?)

I think PW3 dominates discussion. The vibe I got for both rumors was that they applied to all devices, but I could be wrong. If there is a law involved, it wouldn't only apply to the PW3.

All KT3s with any factory (never-updated) firmware are downgradable to the initial factory firmware 5.8.0.
Most of the PW3s with the factory (never-updated) firmware 5.8.11 (currently shipping) are downgradable to the initial factory firmware 5.8.9.0.1 (under some conditions and risk).
We still have few reports about KOA2s with the factory (never-updated) firmware shipped directly from Amazon (to avoid any wi-fi connections by resellers).

I have a KOA2 bought new from amazon.de with factory 5.9.2.0.1. I would like to try to jailbreak it but I don't know how to. If anyone can help me out, we can have another data point. It's the 3G model.

I can confirm the 5.9.2.0.1 KOA2 doesn't downgrade to the factory image.

I tried on a device that has always been on airplane mode bought through amazon.de.

The device is not yet registered.

Is it safe to assume that if we are on 5.9.2.0.1 we can just update to the latest fw since the jb doesn't work?

Updating the latest firmware should not pose any issues.
