Maybe it is the update for everyone after they sent out the 2.5 out to the "selected" guinea pigs?

Does it really? How about if you download them from Amazon straight to the computer?

Breaks it how? The files off the Kindle can't be deDRM'd or the files downloaded to your computer are encoded differently somehow or???

I know if I can't deDRM books I won't be buying any.

Pdurrant, where can I go to read more on the de-drm situation? I buy my books but only if I can remove the DRM and save a drm free copy. This is serious for my enjoyment of the kindle. Thanks.

I don't understand the deDRM comment - once I import my books into Calibre, they are DRM free. So 2.52 would have to be unable to read books without DRM?

What he's referring to, I think, are posts that the new update somehow either changed the Kindle's PID or does something else to make the mobidedrm scripts not work anymore.
