Kindle jailbreak problem(on initial 5.7.4)

Hi, today I managed to downgrade my kindle(PW3) as described here: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=312637
The problem is, that after following these instructions https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/5_x_Jailbreak
(except reflashing the initial firmware part, as I did it, did factory reset tho)
I cannot jailbreak using ;installHtml, nothing happens. Should I reflash the factory image again, and try to follow the instructions again?

Already tried downloading the file using wget, didn't work

If you're not following instructions to the letter, how are you expecting things to work as described?

Spoiler alert: the factory reset screwed things up.

It's even mentioned in all caps in the wiki page and everything.

Damn! We will have fix the instructions, somebody has been reading them.
Maybe we could put every other step on a different web-site.
