So I just got a used PW3 with the intention of jailbreaking it. It is currently on a pretty ancient FW 5.8.9.

I'm assuming it's totally safe to update to 5.16.2.1.1 and still use this JB; correct?

I'd like to have the most up-to-date FW possible before jailbreaking.

Jailbreak using the easiest jailbreak (kindle break?) Then update jailbreak will persist

Hey so I'm curious, but why does "* Jailbreak 5.16.2.x *" appear when it turns on? I'm confused, I'm trying to follow the steps, but am having issues

Not an issue just log message from the hotfix.

I was in a bit of a rush and decided to gamble; updated FW to 5.16.2.1.1 and your JB worked great

Only thing I'm struggling a bit with atm is getting USBNetworking playing nicely over USB.

don't want to hijack the thread but in case someone has a quick solution...

Steps I've taken:
1. added public key to /mnt/usbnet/etc/authorize_keys
2. enabled openssh

I can ssh to root@192.168.15.244 using my keys without an issue but logs show

Code:
230502:012148 sshd[8937]: User root should not be allowed because account is locked, but we're a nice Kindle ;)
230502:012148 sshd[8937]: Accepted publickey for root from 192.168.15.201 port 47848 ssh2: ED25519 SHA256:XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
After some seconds SSH just hangs. A few times (no idea why) I get a session that does not hang and keeps working with SSH not being mad...

I get the same behaviour and message if I use dropbear instead.

What is the OS on your PC?

networkmanager under linux can screw things up.

Yes I'm on linux

I think I found a way to stabilize it; seems like if if close/quit Kual ssh doesn't complain anymore (for some reason).

Okay new issue, I've tried reinstalling 5.16.0.1, and doing the ol' DO_FACTORY_RESTORE but it doesn't seem to help. When I try to install LanguageBreak it seems to work, I do the demo thing, sideload, resell, and then it restarts, and shows the text saying it's jailbroken, but I then reboot into demo mode again, and installing the hotfix fails with an error 2. Trying to get out of demo mode then sends me back to the "Set up your Kindle" OOBE, and I can't seem to properly install LanguageBreak, when everything should be fine. Any help? Thanks!

On the second LB install do not include the .demo statement. It may help you avoid getting caught in demo mode. It worked for me.
