2.5.2 Update fails

Hi,


Was just about to update my kindle to 2.5.2 (using the official amazon file) and it seemed fine, until it got to 'stage 1 of 3'.

A message popped up, that the update was not successful.

The kindle restarted and now I'm still on 2.3.4!

I had the usbnetwork and savory hack removed previously. The updates from 2.3.2 to 2.3.3 and 2.3.4 went fine.

I did modify some config files to mess around with the proxy settings etc. ... could that be the reason why the update fails?

My kindle is properly registered and whispernet works just fine.

Freezer2k,

I'm trying to update from 2.3.3 to 2.3.5, and I'm having exactly the same problem.
I never did any tweaking... Oh wait, I did the custom screen savers. Hmm....

Did you contact customer service already?

For updates to proceed completely, ALL hacks, tweaks, etc. must be removed. AFAIK the updates require the software on your Kindle to be in original condition.

Poohbear, thanks very much. I found the files to uninstall the screen saver hack, and indeed now the update worked!

It's a pain - but keep the uninstall files - you'll need them every time there's an update!
