Download Kindle 2 US (Sprint) 2.5.6 Update Here

http://www.rtoadm.com/Update_501100064_501108064.bin

That's the site I host my blog on, has unlimited bandwidth so feel free to pass it around.

Note: I have not tested this since I captured it off my K2 after it updated, so it's at your own risk.

The tool I used said the file appeared to be intact, so it should be good, but as stated this is at your own risk and I'm not responsible if it bricks your device.

2nd Note: It's also most likely just a 2.5.4 to 2.5.6 Update. Any confirmations on that are welcome.

Yes, it's a 2.5.4 -> 2.5.6 minor update. (K2 US only, once again.)

Thanks for that confirmation.

Hopefully this will help some people who have troubles with Whispernet or just in getting OTA updates keep their device up to date

Also note that it doesn't really do anything, it bumps the version tags and do something with a 'Journal' jar, like the 2.5.3 for the k2i did. The real fixes/updates were in the 2.5.4 udate.

Not sure what the purpose of these are...

Journaling has to do with the file system. So odds are they spotted a crucial file system bug that needed a fix so they kicked it out there.

I'm not sure it's actually really the EXT3 journal it's tweaking... But I suck at java, and I'm way too lazy to disassemble the thing to check . (/opt/amazon/ebook/lib/Journal*.jar for the curious)
