The steps shown do:
- Renames a directory ('mv' move to another name)
- Creates a file by the same, original directory name
To revert those changes do:
- Remove (rm) the file that was created
- Rename the directory to its original name with ('mv' from the backup name)
If you let Amazon push you an "automatic" update (v4.1.1?) then it may: install, fail with an error code, or brick the machine.
Can't say which, that update hasn't been shipped yet.
If instead you get the next update (v4.1.whatever) from the Amazon support site, then you have a chance to be sure the original directory and files are back to "factory state" before you install the manually downloaded file.
