KPW Install .bin Not Recognized

I have usbnetworking installed and configured over ssh/wifi. I wanted to install the latest patch for jbpatch and copied it over using scp.

Code:
scp update_jbpatch_3.2.1_fw531_install.bin root@kindle.local:/mnt/us/

Welcome to Kindle!

update_jbpatch_3.2.1_fw531_install.bin        100% 1247KB   1.2MB/s   00:01
I verify it’s there for installation.

Code:
ls -lh /mnt/us/*.bin
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        1.2M Feb  3 06:59 /mnt/us/update_jbpatch_3.2.1_fw531_install.bin
On my kpw when I choose Menu | Settings and then pull down the menu again the option Update Your Kindle is grayed out.

How can I tell my kpw to refresh and look for the file?

When updates are copied to the device in some other way (for example putting the file to /mnt/us in USB network mode), the Kindle will normally not recognize that there is an update, and the "Update Your Kindle" menu entry remains grayed out. However, you can still force the installation from the command-line:
Code:
lipc-set-prop com.lab126.ota startUpdate 1

Or you can use a button:
Spoiler:


Middle option. 'Begin grayed installer'.

Available here http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...78#post2389078 in Helper package

(When you get really sick of typing that like I did.)
