Do I need to run the full package to upgrade to 3.2.1 first before running this extract/edit to 3.3? (That is if I figure out running python on windows and find where this _tool.py is first )

If I were to create the full package myself, can I run the updater

update_dxg-2.5.8-prepare_kindle.bin
update_k3g-3.1-create_updater.bin

On DX client and Keyboard 3G w/ 3.3 host?

Thanks.

Use Kindle_update_tool.py to extract Update_kindle_3.3_B006.bin and decompress it. You'll now find "Update_525120101-611680021.bin". Use the update tool to extract that and decompress it. Now you'll have a bunch of files. Go into the "06" folder and find "update-06-576290015-611680021.bin". Open that in a hex editor and go to offset 0xC. Change it to 0x02 for K2, 0x03 for K2i, 0x04 for DX, 0x05 for DXi, and 0x09 for DXG. Now copy that update to your Kindle and run it. You might get an error and it's ok because some of the modem files may be different, but your Kindle will be updated regardless. Someone can make a "premade" package of 3.3 updates, but I don't have the time.

I did exactly what you said. Update failed, kindle restarted and it was still 3.2.1 after it restarted. U006 is the error code. Though i really wonder if there is a benefit in 3.3 for us or not.

EDIT: At the bottom-right of the settings page, "Version 3.2.1 (576290015)" is written. Does this mean it is upgraded as the version revision number is the same one in the name of the .bin file i installed?

I don't think there's anything you can do except get a copy of the original 3.2.1 files.

I have succesfully installed firmware 3.3 on my kindle DXG. Here are the feature list on Amazon.
Download your archived Personal Documents on Kindle Keyboard
Whispersync for Personal Documents on Kindle Keyboard
AmazonLocal deals on Kindle Keyboard with Special Offers
Voice Guide Shortcut: Kindle Keyboard users can now quickly turn the Voice Guide feature on and off by holding the Shift key and pressing Spacebar.

Only the fourth one works. But the voice still crackles. It looks there is nothing useful with this update for kindle DXG users unless there are some unadvertised features which i doubt.

I hope so, as I lost it in a hard drive crash, I've used data recovery techniques to no avail, and even my forensic recovery programs failed to find the darn thing.

Any chance someone could post it or work with me to find a way to get ma a copy?? I have a DXG graphite B009 wifi + 3G.

Either the restore bin, or better fix on the battery drain; as invariably I end up with a "critical battery" after it sits turned off for4 days ; even when wireless is turned off.

I'd just as soon return to 2.5.8 if its going to mess with the battery all the time. Any help I'll do a paypal contribution for someone if they could snail mail a cd with the recovery files burnt on it....

I want to upgrade my kindle dxg to 3.2.1 or 3.1 but i do not have another kindle 3 to get the update package. any helps would be fine.and which version should i get? please pm me

btw I have tried to apply prepare_kindle for several times however it says update was not succesful and it restarts all the time. I apply dxg package and my kindle serial number starts with B009 so i don't think im doing something wrong.no output folder is created neither.

I sold my Kindle 3, in order to help raise money (?!) for a DXG----and this was before I discovered this thread. I'd be really grateful if someone could PM, you know, the 'instructions' for the upgrade to me.

I absolutely love the DXG, but especially the font rendering leaves a *lot* to be desired.
