Make sure you use the right package for the right kindle.

Kindle 2 US, Kindle 2 DX and Kindle 2 International all use a different bin file, and you can't not load one into another.

If you copy the binary for say the Kindle 2 on the DX; then the update option will stay grey.

That your menu item is still greyed out means that you didn't copy the right .bin file.

Kindle 2 International: http://www.avenard.org/kindle2/scree...k2i-0.1.tar.gz

Note the the Kindle 2 International and Kindle DX are very similar internally so the instructions for the DX are the same as for the Kindle 2 International

To install on the Kindle 2i ; you have to "jailbreak" it first by installing this package first (http://www.avenard.org/kindle2/updat...kindle-k2i.bin) instructions are there:
