Corrupt download, sorry for raising hopes. I really hoped this would work for me too!

Apparently someone else tried the update and it failed twice so this may be a corrupt .bin.

Um, I just downloaded that file onto my kindle (2.3.4) and it allowed me to update my settings, so I thought I was going to work, but, nothing changed! Dammit. Thought I had it for a sec.

The link to the bin file is posted here, and it works:

I downloaded it and installed it with no problems on my K2I running 2.3.4- now at 2.5.2.
