Its separate from the normal kernel + userland that runs.

Export userstore. Copy complete firmware file over. Install.

The problem is that we don't have a complete firmware image for a K3 with the necessary signatures. All of the K3 firmware updates have been patches on existing versions. The old Kindles had some very large images which were actually the entire firmware i.e. kernel and FS.
