Gonna do the jailbreak thing, again...

Just got my new Kindle and looking at 'fixing' it. FW=5.14.2 so I believe it should work, best I can tell. Musta been December 2018 since I last tried this, so I may have very noobular questions, again.(even though this is like my 4th time, seems my memory isn't getting better as I age...)

I apologize in advance...

Wow. Not sure if this thing has gotten harder or I've gotten dumber...

Well, I naturally assumed I would, and to say it is not going well is an understatement...

So I am in demo mode, but it won't let me skip setting up wifi.
Factory reset the device Make sure to use the "en_GB" or "English (United Kingdom)" locale when setting the language.
Type ;enter_demo in the Kindle search bar after performing a factory reset
Reboot the device
Once in demo mode, skip setting up wifi and enter dummy values for store registration when prompted.
This is where it fails, despite being in demo mode.
