Lightbulb Shoud I JB my unregistered PW3+5.8.1

Hello guys,
I own an unregistered, PW3 (G090G105), never connected to wifi.
All the different threads and wiki finally brought me here. On my Kindle PW3 I would like to play chess and manage collections, that is all.

I think this Jailbreak should work on my Kindle model. However, I do not know if any Chess app is available for Paperwhite 3 or if the collections will become unlocked with jailbreak. I was not able to find any PW3 apps here. (https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Prefix_Index#PW3) Could anybody help please?

Thanks to everyone working hard on maintaining the infinite number of hacks and Kindle models.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was able to Jailbreak succesfully.

However, the chess app does not launch. I downloaded my files (version fw >= 5.6.5) from (http://www.fabiszewski.net/kindle-chess/)
  • Extracted and copied all files to the extensions folder
  • Restarted Kindle
  • Started KUAL
  • Clicked the menu entry for eBoard
  • --> home screen appears and nothing else happens.

I encoutered the same behavior with the simple calculator Oddly enough, Minesweeper and Librarian work just fine.

@Smirda,
AFAIK there is a patch needed for chess to work. Let me double-check it once I get home
