Form factor is also important to me, although not as important as the software, but it weighs nonetheless. I bought the first KOA mainly because of KOReader and ergonomic design both, but returned it for abysmal battery life.

Aura One lacks that asymmetric design; if I'm going to settle for lack of that factor, I'd rather just hold on to my 8" AMOLED (maximal contrast, nice and crisp white on black), rooted, with CF.lumen (for color temperature) + matte screen protector + Lux Auto Brightness for subzero brightness adjustments, and with a host of PDF readers to choose from (to crop and scroll AOT).

The developer who discovered that the jail break does not survive an update to 5.9.2 had to do exactly that.

There are enough complaints in the main Kindle form about the screen lighting, that maybe you don't like the way the one you have now looks.
Or maybe you want one with different options.

Where are we at with the jailbreak? This is my first kindle, but I must always have root.
I haven't updated, or registered the device... FW 5.9.0.5.1

Apart from installing KOReader, which offers epub, and custom screensaver what can it do jailbroken?

UPDATE: I connected the internet so I could change the Home screen to default to My Library (wtf amazon?); received a phone call > saw the kindle rebooting > updated to 5.9.2 >

My new one is going to be here tomorrow.

I really hope the screen is as crisp as the one I am replacing!


I ma still hoping someone will figure out how to get these into flash mode - these have got to be made with that in mind, since there is almost no way to take them apart.

How is it going?
Any update for 5.9.0.6 (3234010012)?

My bet is on a special flash cable. But shouldn't there any reference about this in the platform documentation?

Don't let it update!

Yes, that version can be jail broken.
But the "hotfix" code has to be re-written for the KOA-2

So even if you jail broke it now, you still could not update it without losing the jailbreak.

I am old and slow, but hang in there, it will not be much longer.

Nice, thanks for the info.

Don't worry. Since the file i sent you the other day, i've blocked the updates and put it in plane mode.

If need some help writing code, i can try to help.

Someone is already working on the "hotfix" code.

I am working up a set of "test version" packages and special directions for people to use that want to try things out.
We will do the testing and such via PM, just so possibly broken packages don't escape into the general public.

The directions being developed are in the public eye now:
https://github.com/knc1/KOA2_Jailbreak

If you want to see it in formatted style, take a copy of the forum markup file:
https://github.com/knc1/KOA2_Jailbre...orumMarkup.txt
Click 'RAW' and then Cut&Paste into a PM text box and send the PM to yourself.

We will not be ready to start testing things until the "Jail Break Survival Code" package is fixed for the KOA2.
(Someone is working on that now.)

Sorry, I don't see your nickname on my list of people who provided research images.

The directions are public, the files are password protected.
Currently only people who contributed research images have access to the jail break preview files.

I didn't receive my oasis yet. Hope to receive it soon. But ok, I'll wait for the end of research. Thought that if the directions are public then anyone can test the jb.

When you do get it, contribute a surface image of the USB storage area.
PM me for details on how to do that.

That is the only price I am asking, contribute to the effort.

Just because you do not have to spend money on it does not mean it is free.
