PW2 Does jailbreak survive firmware

My PW2 that's jailbroke has version 5.10.2 and I leave it in Airplane mode most of the time but did sync a week ago and back to airplane mode. Now it's been popping up about an upgrade, I'm assuming it's but it could be 5.10.3 as I didn't install that. Does a jailbroke Kindle survive upgrading to If it doesn't can I delete "update.bin.tmp.partial" to stop it from asking about the update?

A Home at the Top of the World, San Francisco Edition

Not too long ago, Sarah and I found ourselves having tea with Susie Tompkins Buell, the Democratic fundraiser, Esprit cofounder, and wearer of deep crimson toenail varnish (I know because I once waited in line behind her at Tartine and admired the way she made Tevas look fashionable). We were discussing design in the Bay Area and sustainability, but the whole time Sarah and I were admiring the artful surroundings, so much so that we came back with cameras in hand. Located on the penthouse level ...

K3 Help! Kindle 3 Power Switch is dead

Please your help. The power switch in my Kindle Keyboard is damaged and I don´t have a way of waking the device up. Is there a keyboard shortcut or key combination that has the same effect than sliding the power switch? This device has the latest firmware so I don´t think I can root it. If I reset it by disconnecting the battery, it boots and I can use it but when it goes back to sleep I don´t have a way of waking it. I can also try a hardware hack; I have changed the screen of this device tw...

Attacking Silicon Valley Censorship of the Second Amendment

Attacking Silicon Valley Censorship of the Second Amendment Silicon Valley – -(AmmoLand.com)- A recent series of bans by Facebook and Twitter is bringing the question of censorship by the giant technology companies from Silicon Valley to the fore. This is not a minor issue – how this shakes out will decide whether or not Second Amendment supporters can even make an argument for our rights online. To understand how social media had been prior to the 2016 election, take a typical commentary fro...

POTD: Helm Forge ST-1 Charging Handle Stiletto

Today’s POTD doesn’t actually portray any firearm, but the connection with the AR-15 is obviously strong. It is the Helm Forge ST-1 self-defense tool. At first glance, the item looks like a modern style ambidextrous charging handle, similar for example to the Radian Raptor, sharpened to a needlepoint. A closer inspection shows that the “grip” […] Read More … The post POTD: Helm Forge ST-1 Charging Handle Stiletto appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Glo HD GLOHD SD card bricked itself during charging, works with backup card, recover data?

Hello dear mobileread! :iloveyou: Long time lurker, first time poster. So, I have been enjoying my Kobo Glo HD for a long time now. Yesterday, I had an issue with it. I saw charging it and I unplugged it after a few hours, only to find it completely black screen, frozen. So, I turned it off by holding the power button for 20 seconds, it turned off fine. Then when I tried to boot it, it showed no dancing squares, the screen only flashed white/black twice and remained white. I don't want to factor...

Ruger Wrangler Single-Action Revolver – Review

A six-shot group using Federal Automatch ammunition at ten yards off-hand. U.S.A. – When I first heard of the Ruger Wrangler, I had plenty to be excited about. It is Ruger's first new single-action 22 line to be introduced in sixty years. I am no fan of the Western shows that recreated the single-action revolver market back in the 50s, but Ruger six-shooters and me have been linked since the beginning. I first cut my teeth on handgun shooting with a Ruger Bearcat and lately, I've have been ke...

How the Iconic Public Spaces of 4 European Cities Came to Be

My next report from the “History of Landscape” class I’m auditing at the University of Maryland covers something that landscape architects study but is off the radar for garden bloggers and their readers – urban design. But it was my favorite lecture by our brilliant teacher Dr. Caren Yglesias, Ph.D., AIA, Affil. ASLA so here ya go! Caren selected the iconic public spaces of London, Paris, Barcelona and Vienna to elucidate and I asked her why: I think they are all successful, and my hope was th...

Concrete Rose

  Concrete Rose wins the Edgewood Stakes at Churchill Downs. Churchill Downs was packed for two days last Derby weekend. On Friday, instead of slurping sugary mint juleps and jostling for elbowroom with 105,000 race fans, I opted for Louisville’s Galerie Hertz, a short distance from the racetrack. Even as a Louisville native, I’m no longer drawn to large race-day crowds. I made a single online bet and took refuge in Hertz’s beautiful gardens to await the race results. The interlude between ...

Shaker/Japanese Simplicity at Ace Hotel’s New Sister City on the Bowery

One of all-time favorites design/hospitality enterprises, Atelier Ace, recently launched its newest “sub-label,” called Sister City in NYC.  The 12-story hotel recently opened on the Bowery, a formerly gritty stretch in East Village that was a sometimes-dangerous no-man’s land (speaking from experience).

Coffee Soap

This is the perfect neutralizer for hands that smell of onions, but also an ideal body soap with a gentle exfoliating effect. TIP I recommend a divider or similar tray-like mould such as a square or rectangular brownie tin. If you don’t want to invest in one yet, you can also use a shoebox lined with food wrap. Soap, coffee beans and a nailbrush – the perfect gift set! [Author: Search Press]

In and Out

And now the herbaceous peonies have their moment . . . I don't mind picking them as otherwise they flop to the ground. Some year perhaps, I'll organize some kind of support for them -- or not.  I can think of no prettier container for these blowsy beauties than a blue canning jar -- despite the fact that using canning jars as part of the décor has been declared 'so yesterday' -along with shabby chic. Too bad.  We were shabby chic before it was a thing and as long as we live ...

Clara HD Frozen

My Clara HD screen has frozen. The covers of two books are superimposed over each other. No matter where I touch on the screen, it is not responding. Powering on and off does not change anything. I can't return it, I do not have the original packaging anymore. Can I take the back cover off and do anything myself? Sorry for the sideways view, I do not know how to rotate it Attached Thumbnails

Meanwhile, in North Korea news...

We seem to have taken possession of a North Korean cargo ship that the Indonesians busted last year for running around with its paperwork shady and its maritime safety tracking doohickeys turned off. Maybe we can file a mechanic's lien and rename it MV Pueblo.As a side note, I'm looking at pics of Kim Trey in the linked article, and... Wow. He's really well into the transformation from Dear Leader to Maximum Leader, if you know what I mean. He's morphing into late-stage Marlon Brando before our ...
