unable to update my kindle dxi to 2.5

hi all,

I just don't know why I am not able to update my dxi to 2.5.

I download Update_431100003_472900057.bin to the kindle's root.

my current firmware is 2.3.3(431100003).

but the "update" item in the setting keeps gray.

anyone helps me? what's wrong or missing with steps?

thanks

I was in the same boat as you toogle - kindle dx international, at 2.3.3(431100003).

This link worked for me, from
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=82046
where others did not:
http://ifile.it/dymua4c/Update_431100003_472900057.bin

None of the other links posted on these boards, claiming specifically to work for DXi, actually work (at least for me, and they would if they were supposed to, as my DX is factory-default except for the 2.3.3 update).

Note especially: if a post claims to need some 2.3.4 update first, then it is not talking about the DXi i think (the serial number on the back of my DX starts with B005A).

This update, btw, puts my DXi to "Version: Kindle 2.5 (472900057), and the "create new collection" option is available in the menu, so i guess it worked!

Thanks very much lili1989.

Quick question: are you certain it's not just 2.3 -- it's an easy mistake to make, but 2.3 is NOT 2.3.3
