I am on 2.0 still... is there a way to force the new firmware on. Or do you have to wait until it upgrades itself?

It's listed under source code; it just doesn't seem to have been pushed out to Kindles yet:

The update is located here. I don't know if the procedure is the same as it was for K1, so I'd hold off on doing it manually for now.

The link posted above points to the linux source code used for Kindle. Those are NOT for user consumption.

Understood. But, they do point to the existence of those versions.

Wait... who do you think reads and writes code? Developers are actually human you know.

Daffy's post is a bit misleading since that's not where the real "update" is located, just, as I posted, an indication that an update exists or is in the works. Going to the Kindle 1 Update page just provides a Kindle 1.2.bin. No link for upgrading the Kindle 2.

I thought I used the words, "user consumption". Definitely not putting down devs, I like developers =D

You're right, I should have said it was the source code. Happy now!

It's nice to see them updating already. I'll be interested to see a change log.

Well according to the thread on Amazon's forums some people do have the new firmware. Maybe it's factory-installed?

...this may explain why some people have ghosting issues and others have to push alt-g all the time (like me). At least I know it's not a hardware issue because it's crystal clear once I do refresh.
