Without being too annoyingly technical: the key "checked" by just restarting the device as opposed to choosing "Update your kindle" is the wrong one.
I actually picked Update Your Kindle from the first time I tried doing this til now.
I pick Update Your Kindle and it asks me "You are about to update the software on your kindle.."
I click the affirmative. It says
"Update successful. Kindle is restarting"
and then the boy and the tree shows up with something like
"Please wait a moment while we configure kindle blah blah"
That is when I get to the:
"The update was not successful. Update Error: 3"
Prior to this I tried the GUI Launcher, installed it but nothing happened. I thought I did something wrong so I kept doing it until I read that it doesn't work on my FW.
Is it possible that in doing so, I 'changed' something in the files?
