[Solved!] Kindle2 won't update! Need help!

I am trying to update K2 to new firmware 2.3. I had font hack, screensaver hack & usb networking.

- Uninstalled screensaver & font hack using provided bin. restarted K2. hacks gone.
- reset the K2 to factory settings.
- Tried to updated on 2.3 firmware. Getting Kindle update was not successful during Stage 1 of 2.

Tried many times but not luck. Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance.

AG

I don't know how to help you but you mention you removed the screensaver and font hacks. Is there anything that needs to be removed for the USB networking? (I've never tried to use that hack)

Also try re-downloading in the update bin file in case it's corrupted.

ok. when you posted the remove, i had already updated to 0.07 (As troubleshooting procedure), i removed 0.07 and... voila, i successfully updated to 2.3.
Thanks.
Daffy might still have problems though.

The 0.06 uninstall relies on backup files properly existing ...
I would suggest people use the 0.07 uninstaller , even for a 0.06 install.

I don't believe you need to remove the usbnetwork hack before installing the firmware 2.3.

This is not true in my case. I used usb uninstall bin (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=63292) and now I am able to update firmware. Thanks everyone.

The 2.3 firmware update failed on my Kindle International.

I had Savory 0.06 installed, and I've uninstalled it using the Savory 0.07 uninstaller.

Using `dumpMessage I got the following error:

Code:
ota_install: C def:patch:patchinfo="/opt/amazon/ebook/config/netfront.ini":checksum failure
Does anybody have the netfront.ini file for firmware version 2.2.2?

Thanks.

update: I've just figured it out. The Savory 0.06 installer changed line #15 in netfront.ini but the 0.07 uninstaller failed to revert that line back.

Line 15, original:
Code:
# 1.9   set imagebound=0, dlmimes=application/x-mobipocket-ebook text/x-prc
After installing Savory 0.06:
Code:
# 1.9   set imagebound=0, dlmimes=application/x-mobipocket-ebook text/x-prc application/pdf
P/S: I have updated to 2.3 without removing usbnetwork

Same problem. I am tried uninstall the ufh hack. The version shows 2.0.4, but the update doesn't work.

Is there anyway to restore the firmware to factory default?
