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.
No problem with that. Actually I thought to help when I receive it.
But there are two problems. English is not my native language. I can fully understand it but my grammar is awful. Second, if within the research I lose the jb, it is not that simple to me to change kindle like coplate did.
But I can do anything that is without danger to lose the jb. Like sending image etc. And I want to help.

EDIT: One other change I forgot to mention -- my Kindle shipped with Special Offers, but I had them removed.
Since making that post, I learned that you can't do what is required.
As soon as a removable USB storage is plugged into a MacOSx system, it's "Spotlight" process writes a lot of metadata index files to it.
Which stand a good chance of overwriting the things we are looking for.

Linux or Windows do just fine.

Just fine, have been able to JB the device since Nov. 1 (day after release).

But all of our add-ins have to be revised to account for the internal changes to system structure.

If you intend to JB your KOA2, as soon as you get it, do not let it connect to the Internet.

See: https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/MyTestPage
Do the first ("Required") and optionally the second ("Recommended") sections.

If you have not received the device yet, and are willing to provide an image file of USB storage immediately after taking it out of the box, PM me.

On my KAO2 firmware 5.9.0.5.1. I'll wait for the "official" JB for everyone. Thanks for the info.
I do not understand what it is "image file of USB storage" and will be ready to give it to you. Maybe this: G000 P8, 5.9.0.5.1 (3233590008)

You would not believe the number of "you did not mention it on the forum" messages I get.
So if I happened to tell somebody more that once ....
I am just CMA

Now, for the device jailbreak.
But the second part, the "jailbreak survival code" works as is, but really needs some help before ready for the general public.
Kual and USBnetwork are sort of working, but need a good review.

Rescue Pack and the Coward's Rescue Pack add-on do not work on a KOA2.
There features will be wrapped into a re-write of USBnetworking.
These two items are of extreme importance on a device without the fallback of having a serial port (which the original Oasis does not have, and I can't think of any reason the new one would be any different).

So yeah, you could jail break it right now.
But you would still have to prevent it from updating until the other work is done.
AND
there is nothing built and tested to run on it.

All in all, a lot of work for someone who does not even have the device,
And is unlikely to ever have one, unless Santa Claus discovers:
https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2OWN8DZND65QT
Which is unlikely, since I stopped believing in him about 65 years ago.

I accidentally flipped my Oasis2 off airplane and the stupid thing updated to 5.9.2
Doomed?
Should I return it then order another one?
knc1, any interest in me sending it to you so you could use it for awhile to figure out some of the testing?

Look closely at it, maybe you'll see a reason to exchange it.
Maybe the screen or a difference in options.

Did you have the OTA blocking directory name in place when it updated?
If so, what firmware version HAD it been running?
Those two items are important information for us to know.

Someone already purchased the one on my wish list, it will be here Monday.

Good point.
No OTA blocking in place as I hadn't done anything to it as yet. I had it and was sure not to update it. Then I think a few nights ago when i was reading, I was messing with the lighting and accidentally flipped the airplane mode off.

Under device info:
G000 P812 7421 07F7
Kindle 5.9.2 (3250690044)
Can't recall what was on it last week, sadly

If there is likely no way to jailbreak this i'm going to return it. Thanks for any info and glad you're getting one on Monday.
