JB Hotfix update won't install (KO2)
#1  tomsem 08-06-2022, 02:34 PM
I put the .bin file in root, but Update Your Kindle remains greyed out.

I'm picking the one from Packages targeting the Kindle 5, K5 JailBreak Hotfix here:

I've never updated the hotfix before, so I thought I would give it a try on my 5.9.2 KOA2.

DL JailBreak-1.16.N-FW-5.x-hotfix.zip
md5sum JailBreak-1.16.N-FW-5.x-hotfix.zip
ac59b75a539ec5b97836173e467f1bc9 JailBreak-1.16.N-FW-5.x-hotfix.zip
unzip -q JailBreak-1.16.N-FW-5.x-hotfix
scp -p Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.16.N_install.bin root@oasis:/mnt/us

Settings -> Device Options -> Advanced Options

Aaand... Update Your Kindle is grayed out.

So duplicated your results.

Has the 2022 May 17 hotfix release worked for anyone?

@j.p.s Is the bin file still on device when you reconnect it via USB cable to your computer?
And don't do it the lazy way (scp copying :P, over WiFi? ), test the traditional USB storage mode transfer.
I've used that exact "build" of hotfix package on PW5 with firmware 5.14.1.1 10 days ago...

Yes.

I can't because all my kindles are permanently in USBnetwork mode. This is essential for my KOA2 because it locks up hard when USBnetwork is toggled. Then I have to reboot. Then it nags me that an update is available. (I've never enabled ssh over wifi. Maybe someday.)

Are you using the renameota extension? If the answer is yes, click restore, wait for kindle to restart and try using the hotfix again.

I do not have renameota installed.

Did you have 'mrpackages' folder (MR Package Installer)?

If yes, then do the following steps:

1. Copy Update_jailbreak_hotfix_1.16.N_install.bin into the mrpackages folder.
2. On the Home screen, search box enter ";log mrpi" to install the hotfix.

IMO, for custom packages, you need to use MRPI to install.

Thanks! That worked.

After re-re-rereading the instructions, that is what they say. I really truly believe there must be a less confusing way for them to be worded.

Hope tomsem is still following this thread.

Hotfix package is supposed to be the one exception to that rule "install everything using MRPI".
Jailbreak bridge bin package (inside jailbreak zip in the Snapshots thread) does pretty much the same thing as hotfix package, the difference being in how they're packaged (and in strictness of some checks IIRC), so the bridge package must always be installed using MRPI and hotfix should work with "Update Your Kindle" mechanism.

This is the situation for me. I will try this.
