The binaries will run on the Kindle 3. It's still ARM. However, the Kindle Touch uses a 800MHz cpu while the Kindle 3 uses 533MHz. It wasn't much of a jump from the Kindle 2's 500MHz, so we could run the K3 software on the K2 with some modifications. I'm curious to see if the same could be applied to 4.0 on Kindle 3.

It says we'll have to contact the maker of the software to uninstalll it so we can install the update.
Of course, it would be possible to uninstall the mods and update it, then install them again.
They say that on all updates. Even 2.5.8. It's to prevent someone from calling amazon up and asking why their custom screensavers doesn't work anymore.
