I am having this same problem. I can't update. I tried the RUNME_restore but after restarting multiple times, the runme is still there (not a runme.done) and a file called "FWUOupdate-14-1331440003-1615370055.bin.partdldtmp" was created. I am wondering if there is a way I can completely wipe my K4SO to get this to work.
>>Edit Also worth noting that my kindle doesn't have custom screensavers at the moment, but it did previously. I have special offers right now.

And of course, the update still didn't work :/
