I am so far unsuccessful in downgrading the firmware. Am I SOL? or am I just missing something. Everything seems geared towards older versions.

USA version - (G090 G1*)
Has received update to 5.9.5.1
Ads are disabled (Paid to Amazon)
Purchased new directly from Amazon.com (new)

All methods listed for PW3 have been attempted:
update_pw3_factory_5.8.9.0.1.bin
update_kindle_all_new_paperwhite_5.8.9.bin
update_PW3_5.7.4_initial.bin

In all cases the Update Kindle selection only briefly flashes black and then grays out. .bin files disappear from root.

Files are in fact placed in the root directory.
None of the things you have tried has: 5.9.5.1 in their title.
What made you think they would work?

If you had to just try things, thinking that you can't trust us to keep the information correct, why in the world would you trust anything you read or get from this site?
Don't you think it is more than a little bit foolish to trust your device to things you get from a site where you can't even trust the titles?

Which brings to mind another point which fails to compute ...
Our only way to answer any of your questions is to write that answer in a post that you must read.
But we already wrote those things in posts that you read and ignored.
Why should anyone waste time responding to your posts if the only thing you are going to do, even if you read them, is to ignore them?
