You mean like how do I unzip and download a bin file ?

And wasnt it only yesterday you realised that the instructions for the Kindle 2 did not work for the International version anyway? And this was after others were telling you of their problems.

I had been trying to load binaries on a kindle 2 international from the day I received it...

And BTW, because history seems to have been changed. I had used a tar trick from before I ever knew it got mentioned here... I wish I did, it would have saved me the better part of the day

somewhere I left a long time ago. I have zipped and unzipped many files in my lifetime but have never experienced this issue before.
Thanks. I wont bother you again.
A .bin file isn't a zipped file !
you copy it on the Kindle using the USB cable FFS.
When you plug your Kindle to your PC it it mounted as appear as a USB disk. You copy the bin file WITHOUT UNZIPPING IT to that directory. Then you eject the Kindle (do not use "safely remove that hardware" ; go in the Kindle Settings page and select "Upgrade ..."

But yeah... happy unzipping... O your highly PC expert...
