Still won't power down even with the jailbreak gone and the factory reset/registration in place. I'll keep fiddling but this is frustrating.

You can downgrade to 5.0.0 then use 5.1.0 update file

So, it's usefull to uninstall screensaver hack and launcher before updating do 5.1.0.
Is it then possibile to install again the launcher?
Is the Kindle still rooted after updating?
Thanks

If you have problems updating, try to think if you made any changes related to auto rotation based on accelerometer (e.g. lab126_ligl.lua or lab126_orientation.lua). These files are replaced by the update and if there is any change, update will fail with U006.

Good news is that it is possible to activate landscape directly from menu, without having any hack. Even better news is that Amazon made a few changes to rotation code that can auto rotate. Bad news is that Amazon has removed kernel module for accelerometer. So Kindle does not see this device anymore

Could you please tell me if there's a guide to downgrade or can you address me to a specific thread? Where can I find the needed files?

Had it some weeks ago on my KT but uninstalled it, of course with the uninstall ... bat. But probably I give it another try. THX for the hint!

yes, all you need to do is to install mmcblk0p1 with
Code:
dd if=/mnt/us/mmcblk0p1.img of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 bs=4K
and reset mmcblk0p3 with
Code:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk0p3 bs=4K

Can this be done via WinSCP?

Are you sure with the files? I loaded another one , packed in a *.gz

EDIT: found the files, so no need to flash the whole kernel?

EDIT2: ok after having read a bit, it has to be done in fastboot mode, am I right. Good that I have a Fire as well and done some stuff there already...

Hi.
I successfully updated my KT to the latest version but now I have a strange bug:
I disabled "E-ink refresh every page" but I still have refresh on each page turn!!

could you help me?

ps: it seems it disappears from time to time.
