the update: seems very stable so far and almost seems a bit faster than the native 2.5.8! amazon have no excuses for not rolling these updates across all its kindles and are clearly engaging in dodgy marketing activities to boost sales of newer models.

some issues i have noticed already:

1 power up after sleep is very slow...over 20 seconds...please fix this if you can
2 i can confirm all my active content is missing and not functioning.
3 tabel of contents on pdfs dont work..this was one of the main reasons for my trying the new firmware
4 the browser can take a long time to fire up

apart from the above im impressed how well this firmware behaves on the dxg
update...the browser will sometime fail to load and can take over a minute to boot up! starting to consider going back to 2.5.8 as the bugs are getting in the way of the benefits after a few days use.
