New Update 6.2

Is being released, my fire just updated. Sorry I misread what the update is for, it actually doesn't say what the update is for.

Mine is installing now--caught me by surprise. I hope it doesn't mess with our sideloaded apps and settings.

Does it give you a notification that it is updating.

I rebooted mine when I noticed the same thing. It immediately started updating, then rebooted by itself.

According to the instructions, do a settings->sync, then put it in standby. Mine rebooted within a few minutes after that, and now I'm on 6.2.

I tried that but nothing has happened. I might just leave it on for a while and see if it picks it up...

According to Amazon: To update your Kindle, ensure you are connected to a Wi-Fi network and that your battery is fully charged. Tap the Quick Settings icon in the upper right corner of your device, then tap "Sync." The software update will automatically download in the background and will be applied once download is complete and the device is asleep.


You can even download the update directly from Amazon and sideload it. It's a big update, 181 MB.

Updated. Don't see anything different. Perhaps just performance and bug fixes.

Interesting, it appears I'm not able to restore root using OTA RootKeeper. Maybe the backup files were wiped. I am able to start Android Market. Will try to root again.

Promise not to get too excited? I think the cloud now works with personal documents. A non Amazon book I emailed to my Fire is in my Archive!
