The Popcorn Jailbreak worked for my Kindle PW2 on in the end:

1. used the windows version by ygjsz

2. exchanged the kernel.bin in wario\Profiles\Linux\OS Firmware with the updated payload from beyonik (rename beyoniks uImage-popcorn-wario.bin to kernel.bin)

3. basically followed the tutorial by Vlash

additionally my process:
-I jammed the opened up kindle between something to keep it standing on it's side, kept the usb connected with pc, just ejected it via the option from the taskbar

- then opened the prepared mfgtool (see 1 and 2) and clicked start, so that it was waiting for a device

- then bridged the contacts and held them while confirming the restart in kindle device options.

-I only stopped bridging the contacts when mfgtool loaded the payload.

4. after the successful jailbreak and boot I copied the hotfixes by beyonik one after the other, to root and installed via "update your kindle"
