What is known by Amazon as the 8th. generation, Kindle Basic.
That is, IR scanned touchscreen, no front lighting.

It has been awhile since this sequence has been posted, so with the firmware being shipped with this (new production run) device:
  • Unpack
  • Connect to charger
  • Wait for it to wake up


When it is ready, it will run the 'first boot, run once' firmware, leading you down this path with the option to complete the setup later:
  • Select "language"
  • Select "next"
  • Select "get started"
  • Select "Connect to Wifi"
    Device scans for Wifi networks
  • Select "Cancel"
    In small print, lower right of screen:
  • Select "Complete setup later"
  • Confirm "Complete setup later"
    System will continue to boot to the main screen with a message about updating your Kindle Experience.
    Which so far has been only selecting single choice items.


Kindle continues to nurse at the charger.

Let us see what we bought.
The 'Settings Icon' is the vertical stack of three dots in the upper right of the menu bar.

The Kindle is now (still) sitting at the first showing of the home screen (with full impulse buying options enabled).

Settings -> Airplane Mode == set to 'On'
Still on the 'settings' screen:
Settings (the same three dots, but from this screen not the home screen) -> Menu
Select "Device Info"

Find that this is a White KT3 (which is nice, it is what I ordered) model: G0 00KA
And the above dance was performed by firmware version: 5.8.1.1 (2987430003)

Note that UYK was a member of the menu that held the "Device Info" choice.

Allow it to finish charging, it will eventually go to the screen saver mode.
The little yellow light will turn green when it is done.

Welcome to the exclusive white kt3 owner's club, knc1!
Didn't know it had an IR touch screen. Doesn't feel any different from the other kindles.
Waiting for you to uncover more details.
(Your are going to jailbreak it.. aren't you?)

The IR scanner does not run at high enough power to feel it.
Every criminal in the world would be buying one to burn their finger prints off with.

Seriously, compare the thickness of the cover on the K5, KT2, KT3 -
It is noticeably thicker than the paperwhite versions.

After breakfast (for both me and the Kindle).

There have been a very few, really funky trouble reports.
I want to re-test my own instructions on the most recent device.

The current software jb continues to be very popular, both by number of views here and by the number of downloads (even after adjusting for the script kiddies of the world).
