New Kindle Fire update soon

Format 8 is upon us. With the standalone Kindle apps being updated, I'm sure our KF will follow by the end of the week.

The Kindle Fire had KF8 support when it shipped.

I'm sure it'll get some type of optimization though.

How should people with rooted KF's handle this update, Jessica?
I have DroidWall, but sometimes turn its Firewall off to use infrequently used apps.
I also have OTA RootKeeper - can I do the update and then restore root with RootKeeper?

There is no update, so you don't have to do anything.

But when there are updates, don't install it right away. Wait until the Android blogs report that it is safe for you to install on your hacked KF.

Let's hope so. I want to be able to sync my personal docs with my other Kindles. It's really silly you can't do that with the Fire. Now that the Android app has that feature first I am kinda feeling left out.

Heh, sorry to disappoint. I didn't know that the new format was officially supported. I haven't seen any HTML5 titles yet myself.

But in saying that, I was able to replace the Kindle app that is stock and get the new personal docs feature.

Kindle4PC was updated on 3/16/2012 to version 1.9.2 (38420) available here:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000426311

That one did have support for new features:

1. Localized app language in French, Spanish, Italian, and Brazilian Portuguese
Support for collections allows you to take control of your Kindle library and organize your books with ease

2. Book Extras by Shelfari. Access character descriptions, important places, popular quotations, themes, and book-specific glossaries from Shelfari, the community-powered encyclopedia for book-lovers

3. Support for Kindle Print Replica content, which look like the corresponding print book with words and images in the position corresponding to the print edition. See more detail on Print Replica content here.

4. Support for reading most PDF files within the Kindle application, including functionality such as zoom and pan, highlighting, note taking, dictionary lookup, and bookmarks

With the stand-alone apps updated, any word on when the K3 Keyboard, K4, and K4 touch will be updated for KF8 support?
