PW2 jailbreak not persistent

I have used the following guide to jailbreak my kindle PW2:
http://www.mobileread.mobi/forums/sh...d.php?t=275877

So i downgraded my kindle to firmware 5.4.3.2 then jailbreaked with:
http://www.mobileread.mobi/forums/sh...d.php?t=186645

No fix needed, so installed KUAL and MRPI, tested, worked, then updated to firmware 5.8.5.
Now, KUAL does not work anymore, although the hack's description said it would be persistent throughout further firmware updates - "Application Error. The selected application could not be started. Please try again."

Can anybody help?

Yes, the jailbreak held. You just need to reinstall KUAL and maybe MrPi.

ok, MRPI was not working so i put the KUAL azw2 file in the documents folder and was able to select that as an app in my library. then i could reinstall everything via the KUAL Helper+ MRPI option that I had installed earlier - just if somebody needs that info, too. thanks for the help, Cinisajoy!

So install the 'hotfix', it is what contains the code which makes the jb (and a few other things - like MKK, which from the error message you are missing) persistent.

Step #6 - labeled "jailbreak survival code"

It should have been installed as part of the directions you followed, but it will not hurt to re-install the newest one (which that link points to).

You didn't mention WHEN you used the current directions -
They where very recently edited to make it clear that you only skip steps #5 and #6 but are suppose to return to the first thread and complete steps #7 and #8.
