5.9.6? Are you sure?

Kudos if you did succeed!

ok, the saga continues lol
can't install anything over usb, the update button is disabled, greyed out
@knc1, when you said that i can flash any firmware, it would have been nice to mention that with 5.9.x most things just don't work. i could've flashed a 5.8.x
ok, whats done is done
what can i do now?
thanks

i'm going crazy over here
what can i do now to get out of this greye out update button?
if i reattach the serial interface, what are the exact steps i should do to have a functioning firmware downgraded device? what should i flash?
now i am on 5.9.4. i dont know if i am jailbroken or not, nothing installs. is there a way to test if i am jailbroken withou reconnecting the serial?
thanks!

giving up...
the information is too scarce and too wide spread around the forum, if there is any...
i can't even find out if i am jailbroken or not
thanks for the bits to those who tried in their own way to help me

Did you see the Jail Broken document?

Quote:
If the 'Jail Broken' document is not on your Kindle in the /documents folder after the completion of this step, then the certificate is not on it either!
If this happens to you, stop here and post about the problem, there is no reason to continue if the JB is now missing.
If not, it seems like your device has NOT been jailbroken but upgraded to 5.9.4...

To see the positive side, at least your device works and is not bricked. But it's gonna be harder to downgrade it now.

It does if it is still there.
It gets overwritten when the device is updated.

How did you put the *.pem file on the system?
Did you use one of our scripts? (which does additional things, like drop the jail broken document)
Did you follow that up by installing the bridge code?

Note: The information IS NOT scattered around the forum.
The serial jailbreak thread you where sent to is complete in and of itself.

It is just that you keep jumping around all over the forum, trying to ad-lib your own version of the process by mixing in whatever you read somewhere other than what you were told to read and follow.

Have you tried to install the "test dummy" package attached to the first post of the (software) jail break?
With what results?

i can't install mrpi because i dont have kual. and i cant install ANYTHING (such as kual) anymore, because the update button in the menu is disabled/greyed out.
if i put a bin in the root folder and reboot, it just gets erased, nothing installs

And what do the instructions tell you to do about that situation?
I really, really, really did write what to do about installing packages without KUAL.
Really.

But I will not read it for you, and then type it here for you not to read again.

Maybe someone else will read the directions to you.
Maybe.

Otherwise, give up on this whole idea of jail breaking your Kindle.
