Update?

Did Amazon just send an update to Kindle DXs?

I'm sitting at my desk with my DX in front of me (but I'm doing something else) and it went to the reading tree image, said something about restarting and then the progress bar appeared and, uh, progressed. It looked like it rebooted and now it's back to where it was.

Version # is 2.1, last three digits 062. Last time this happened the update was some sort of internal wifi thing. I don't remember what the version number was before, sorry.

Edited to add: just found an earlier thread about this and the version number is the same, so must be a small internal change. I do wish Amazon would at least tell us what they are doing!

Well, if you worry about automatic updates, you can disable them and wait for more information from other forum members before applying them.
For more info, check "Disable BigBrother features" thread in "Kindle Developer's Corner"

Thanks, ebs. It's not so much that I worry, I just want to know. Even something cryptic like 'maintenance update' or something like that.

Alas, I'm starting to worry that it wasn't Amazon. About an hour ago my DX fritzed out on me as I was closing a PDF. It went all black screen, then said there was no life in the battery (there was 3/4ths of battery life left according to the meter just a few minutes earlier). I put it in my bag, brought it home... and now it's fine. Battery meter says 3/4ths again, and everything looks like it's working normally. I'll keep paying attention, but it kinda freaked me out.
