Hi,

I wanted to install the new firmware, but my Kindle DX is a gift that friend of mine bought and registered with her mail and pasword. I can not access the "Update device" on Settings because I don´t have the user, so I can not update
I am afraid I`ll not be able to contact my friend and ask him for her user and password.

Any idea to install the new firmware?

I used the leaked 2.5.2 update on my K2i, and then turned on wireless and got 2.5.3. What I noticed was the leaked firmware was only 13mb's, while the real firmware from Amazon was 24.3mb's. This seems for me to be my real 2.5.2 patch. I don't notice anything different with the 2.5.3.

I also used 2.5.2 leaked update on my k2i (2.3.3->2.3.4(leak)->2.5.2(leak)), and haven't received 2.5.3 although my wireless has been On for weeks. (I was expecting 2.5 update ) I don't think it's a regional delay, since my colleagues got 2.5.3 yesterday via wireless.

Thinking about it, I've never received 2.3.4 either.
Maybe I am recorded as no-minor-update-guy at Amazon?

The size difference between leaked one and official one concerns me as well.

I manually updated all through to 2.5.2. 2.5.3 is the first update I have received wirelessly. This is a K2i.

Leaked 2.5.2 was 2.3.4 to 2.5.2 only. Official is any version to 2.5.2. That probably explains the size difference.

You mean official one supports update from bellow 2.3? cf. 2.2?
BTW, is your kindle updated to 2.5.3?

Yes, it was wirelessly updated to 2.5.3

The official release _appears_ to support below 2.3, as there's no wording to suggest that you need at least 2.3, and they don't provide 2.3 there either.

My K2i also just updated to 2.5.3 - probably just a bug fix
