Kindle Fire 6.1 Update

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=200790620

From the file size it seems to be a full update instead of delta.

EDIT: yup, complete system update with kernel, boot loader, recovery, and system. All apks, libs, etc. Signed, unfortunately.

EDIT 2: also, seeing that the fire runs Kindle 6.0 (even though it is nothing like the older kindle software) and the Non-Touch runs 4.0, I'm going to take a wild guess and say the touch will run 5.0. Should we call it the Kindle 5?

EDIT 3: Aaaand I'm right. Also, the source is out. This is like Christmas for me, lol. http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=200203720

From the source: K5/KT's board is codenamed Whitney. It had an accelerometer, like the dx.

And sometime during the prototype process, amazon added an sd card slot. This of course can't be seen from the production model, but I wonder if it's hidden inside the case. Or if there is an unsoldered sd card slot inside.

What do you mean, signed? Amazon specifically said they weren't going to actively prevent rooting.

They did? The updates are signed as in if you modify the update, it won't run.

Maybe they'll allow bootloader unlocking or the bootloader is unlocked?

Yes, an amazon VP announced it publicly:

Quote:
Amazon’s new Kindle Fire tablet has a great user interface, but many of our readers already want to get rid of it. That’s OK. Amazon isn’t doing anything special to prevent techies from “rooting” and rewriting the software on its powerful yet inexpensive new tablet. “It’s going to get rooted, and what you do after you root it is up to you,” Jenkins said.”

There is an SD built-in to the fire for apps that need it. It isn't removable though, according to the dev pages.

The sd card, I was talking about the touch.
