Jailbreaking

Jailbreak is an iOS thing.

The Kindle paperwhite use a Linux operating system, jailbreaking "shouldnt" be necessary. "Unlocking" the bootloader somehow or some other kind of "unlock" process may be necessary, but that does not equal the same thing as jailbreaking.

Useless argument Jailbreaking or Rooting or whatever.
Kindle devices are hard to unlock:this is what counts

fyi its linux except it's not as it, at it uses U BOOT which is different from bootloader

Yes, jailbreaking unlocks the device so that unapproved software can be installed and some other things can be modified, but, there are still things that can't be touched.

Rooting, however, pretty removes all restrictions and allows access to install or modify whatever you want, how you want, when you want.

Jailbreaking has more in common with unlocking the bootloader on an android device then modifying the system partition or any other partition via ADB/ADBshell/fastboot, etc.. without using root than it has in common with rooting an android device. Unlocking the bootloader on android allows the usage of unapproved software and will allow system modifications but does not allow complete access to modify whatever you want. That is quite a bit more llike jailbreaking than rooting. But that is here nor there, either way, you're unlocking the device to allow modifications that otherwise wouldn't be allowed.

Its definitely JB since you cannot access root or system from Diags (if you have KINDLE DEVICE YOU CAN CHECK)requires terminal to make modification or other reader to access directory for same.

:thanks: for your interest and insight
