Can't update to 5.6.1.1. via MRpi

Hi there,

I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I downgraded 5.6.1.1 to 5.3.3, copied KUAL and MRpi, installed hotfix via MRPI and I'm trying to update the firmware via MRPI (copying the bin file to MRpackages folder). After it goes through the supposed installation - it boots back to the 5.3.3 FW. I don't know how to go through it :/

MrPI == Mobileread Package Installer.
Does not mean Amazon Package Installer.
A firmware update is an Amazon Package, not a Mobileread package.

Just follow the directions on the Amazon page you got the firmware from.

There is a clean division of labor here -
We do not install Amazon packages and Amazon does not install our packages.
