I was able to hide the old KUAL entry by:

Code:
cd /var/local
sqlite3 cc.db 'update entries set p_isvisibleinhome=0 where p_location="/mnt/us/documents/KUAL-KDK-2.0.azw2"'
tried to delete the whole entry but failed, got an error of unsupported collation "icu".

hello @knc1. so I did everything until step 4, shit. let me describe.

1-i received a pw3 5.8.10.1 (G090G1),
2-put it on airplane mode
3-reset it
4-downgraded it to 5.7.4 initial
5-installed main-htmlviewer.tar.gz
6-installed Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.14.N_install.bin (maybe a restart happened)
7-activated wifi and connected to internet
8-installed kual (file was showing in the library as a DEV item)
9-some stuff started running, like the 5.9.2 update and syncing to my girlfriends amazon account, because she bought it to me.
10-de-registered the kindle
11-registered to my account
12-problems with kual to run.
13-update to 5.9.2 requested a restart.
14-no signal of kual to run correctly
15-after some 2 hours i decided, stupidly, to reset to factory status and restart the process. bad mistake.
16-no success at all
17-tried the Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.14.N_install.bin, sucess, jailbreak is listed in the root directory, but nothing else is happening.

did I lock the kindle to Amazon's environment? can it be reversed?

thank you!

i was missing that. i was trying to install KUAL *.bin directly at the root, but the command saved me. i had no clue that it could work.

work as a charm, the process. the problem was that i changed the registration of kindle and decided to use reset after getting to 5.9.2 and kual not working. After thatI was forced to use @coplate's method to correct the JB back to 5.9.2. so the downgrade was successful.

as well, i completely forgot that I needed to install KOreader and confuse it with KUAL itself. so I thought after KUAL, KOReader should magically run. dont know why...

anyway, KOReader is running under KUAL 2.7.2 in my Kindle 5.9.2 PW3 G090G1.


obs.: i would like to highly suggest that the error of de-registering to be described at the tutorial. it would have helped me... hehe.

thanks a lot!

Meaning you forgot this part:

Other models covered in this thread may do the same or may run it from KUAL.

The directions are already long enough that you are forgetting parts of them.
You really think I should make them longer?

Hello all,

running Kindle PW3 firmware 5.9.2., the nomax binfile is not working for me. Is anyone working on a method to downgrade/jailbreak this firmware?
Thanks alot

My friend updated his jailbroken PW3 to 5.9.2 (and then regret it - he had been better off following my suggestion to stick to 5.8.11 which is a much better fw at all...). But the "nomax" hotfix worked for him. (He now "only" has lost the ability to run kindlets like e.g. for VlasovSoft's tools directly from the library view alternatively with the "loop way" via KUAL, and the overall performance of the device dropped siginificantly.)

Has your device been jailbroken on an earlier firmware? If not: no chance. 5.9.2 can't be jailbroken. Only applying the hotfix won't work if the jb signature certificate isn't on the device. And this can only be "injected" via the initial factory fw and the ";installHtml" command.

it has been jailbroken successfully on 5.7.4, then I updated the firmware up to 5.9.2 as they released the updates. Next my Kual stopped working properly (it did "work", but librariansync failed to update collections as requested by calibre). I managed to hit the stupid bullshit mark, did a factory reset, now I'm stuck with fw 5.9.2 with failures to downgrade back to 5.7.4 and I'm getting update error 007 when trying the nomax hotfix. If it helps somehow, I can post the ;dm log output here.

Btw thanks for any effort

The reset followed without a hotfix by an update has wiped out your jail break. Your only option now is serial port jail break.

if the nomax hotfix isnt workign on your PW3, it may have lost the ability - but just hitting reset once shoudl not wipe the jailbreak itself.

please do try to install the hotfix again and provide the logs form ';dm'

This is a version of the Hotfix for touch devices that will run on normal software versions ( not just the factory ). I have verified on my PW3 that the jailbreak itself remains through the rest process, but I needed this package to re-install the hotfix.

Spoiler:

Code:
Made with this command

$ KT_WITH_UNKNOWN_DEVCODES=1 ./kindletool create ota2 -d touch -d paperwhite -d paperwhite2 -d paperwhite3 -d 26D -d 26E -d 26F -d 270 -d 293 -d 294 -d basic -d voyage -d oasis -d 219 -d 21A -d 21B -d 21C -d basic2 -d kindle5  -O -s 0 -t 18446744073709551615   Update_jailbrea
k_hotfix_1.14.N_install_converted.tar.gz Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.14_nomax_install.bin

$ ./kindletool convert -i Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.14_nomax_install.bin
Checking update package 'Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.14_nomax_install.bin'.
Bundle         SP01 (Signing Envelope)
Cert number    0
Cert file      pubdevkey01.pem (Developer)
Bundle         FC04 (OTA [ota])
Bundle Type    OTA V2
Minimum OTA    0
Target OTA     18446744073709551615


I have forked kindletool to allow me to retain software type FC04, and set all these values.
-------------------------------
When use this Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.14_nomax_install.bin, i got the "Update Error:007"

From your command, it seems use the "Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.14_nomax_install.bi n", but in fact, i use the "JailBreak-1.15.N-FW-5.x-hotfix.zip" before,
Is is error reason?

Application Error

"The selected application could not be started. Please try again."
This thread helped solve the problem for me, so I thought a summary of what I had to do might help someone else...

Previously jailbroken Kindle Paperwhite PW3 now running 5.9.7 -> KUAL Application Error :-(

Deleted \Documents\KUAL-KDK-2.0.azw2

File Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.14.N_install.bin
Put in the root of the USB and used 'update your kindle'
- Failed & the file was deleted by the OS

File Update_KUALBooklet_v2.7_install_nomax_KOA2.bin
Put in the root of the USB and used 'update your kindle'
- Worked & KUAL started OK, but my screensavers still didn't appear

File Update_linkss_0.24.N_install_pw2_kt2_kv_pw3_koa_kt 3.bin
Put it in the \mrpackages directory, eject USB, and search ;log mrpi

Tah-dah!

BTW thanks to the Developers for being so patient with everyone
