Confused about a paperwhite jailbreak

Hi, I just got my paperwhite 3 with ads and I want to jailbreak it. I'm getting conflicting information about whether a jailbreak is possible.

The device came with 5.8.10.1 firmware and it has never been connected to the internet. Bought from Germany if that makes a difference.

You might want to remove special offers.
On the other, I am not sure.

As far as we know right now, any paperwhite ( 4 GB ) that has not recieved an update from "factory" mode can be jailbroken. ( wither Over The Air or USB update )


I have not had time to update the wiki with this information ( so it only lists the exception of 5.8.9.0.1 ), and knc1 has spent enough time updating his first post, I think we need to try to get more people to use the wiki.


https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/5_x_Jailbreak

The firmware download links will take you to google, as the forum member who was hosting them realized enough people had copied them, and stopped paying for hosting.

If your serial starts with G090G1, you shoudl be able to continue using all the files listed in the wiki.

If you have a differnet model number, you may want to compare the wiki steps versus this post knc made for 5.8.9.0.1 ( 5.8.9.0.1 image can be used instead of 5.7.4 image and support more devices like the 32GB manga model ):
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=291336


My understanding is that special offers don't stop the jailbreak, but make it harder (impossible ) to recover if there is some kind of issue , so the recommendation is to pay amazon to remove them, but then you have to connect to the internet. ( you can skip registration, and put the update blocking folder on the kindle, then resume registration to prevent update ).

You skip registration by saying "connect to wifi", but then hitting the little [x] to close the wifi popup. That will give you a "complete registration later" button.

It almost always makes a difference.

follow the directions for 5.8.9.0.1 and report back on what happens.

At least some of those sites list the md5sum of the file.
If it is identical with the one here, then:
5d38744bd01f4cbf457dae4499c3c32a

@hius07: I thought you had a copy @4pda.ru.

And there should be a number of copies posted in Japan, after all, it is for the PW3-32 manga model (which also works on the PW3-4).

For PW3 4GB we use factory 5.7.4 with no problems. 32GB is a rare thing here.

I am in the same situation (sn: G090 KB, firmware 5.8.10.1, and I guess it's from UK, can't really tell). Did you try one of the said methods? Did you succeed? Please tell me.

If some of the experts here read this, could you verify that I should go with update_pw3_factory_5.8.9.0.1.bin? I am not really sure, I couldn't find a reliable tutorial for my firmware.

j3f11 has had the file for ten days now and has not had the courtesy to post the results.

All of the information available at this site is the result of people helping other people.

I tried to be as polite as I could be. I really don't know why you feel it necessary to tell all that to me. If you don't feel like sending that file to me, fine, my bad.

Anyway, thank you for clearing up that I need to use your method. I only asked because the first reply here said something about dependance of serial numbers.

hi guys
so i got a pw3 5.8.10.1
if i understand correctly, i can use either of the update_pw3_factory_5.8.9.0.1.bin or update_PW3_5.7.4_initial.bin (that i got from the jailbreak wiki)?
why one is called factory and one initial? which is best?
@knc1, please, can you send me the link for 5.8.9.0.1? i see that you can not receive pm's
thanks!

I used update_PW3_5.7.4_initial.bin and had no problem JBing a PW3 with ads.

I think I used this link to the image: http://www.mediafire.com/file/i55ir4....4_initial.bin

md5sum: 14f2267189b9ecc51d89e4e86f201e75
sha256sum: 021085d5218482392168e2940ee4fa126c4fe639bb17147253 11101e064da7e6

It would be possible to add the md5/sha256sum for each file on the wiki, so that people can verify their downloads easily.

Good luck!
