Good call. It's always a good idea to wait (if you have a choice) and see what breaks. If the update breaks my sideloaded Aldiko, I'll be livid.

I guess they think they are the company that sold you a piece of hardware at just about break-even in the hope that you would then buy and consume their content. Remember, this is primarily an Amazon media consumption device, not an Android Tablet, so don't be surprised if they fight back against attempts to interfere with their business model.

He obviously doesn't know what he is talking about as 6.3 has not been released. Nor would the folks at XDA know what is in it yet.

@beej231 claims to have manually downloaded the update. That cannot be as the latest available download is 6.2.2. Unless he got a hold of something on the XDA website, which I doubt.

Well,I have bought and consumed loads of their products and content. I'm not surprised at all really. I'm just curious and I love to tinker under the hood.

Thanks I downloaded the stock 6.3 and updated my Fire. And it does seem a little snapper than it did. I can not check out much other at this time seeing I do not have a wifi here at work to connect to to check out the wifi connection. or any of the other improvements.

Same here!!!
My biggest concern is My Go launcher Ex and my rotating wallpaper.

As well as All My over 30 Side loaded apps and games.
I Never use this device for web surfing and I dont use Amazon for books or Video as I side load those as well and play them in MOBO player in their native format( AVI,MKV.mov).
So my Device Wi-Fi shall remain OFF For now.
