What's in the Kindle Keyboard update that Amazon says I need?

Apparently, it will not be able to connect if I don't update by October 1, but is there anything I'll lose if I *do* update?

I suspect the update is only of security certificates, but I haven't checked.

You're just getting a notice today for October 1st? I'm running 3.4.2 on my Kindle Keyboard. I wonder if I also have a mandatory update (as of yet unannounced)?

3.4.2 has been on my keyboards for months. It just says 3.4.2 or higher on the website. I haven't noticed any changes. The biggest change was in July for more recent devices besides the read/unread option is that it ended the practice of deregistering your device and reregistering it on someone else's account so that you could download their books, then deregister and reregister your device to your own account. Can't do it any longer. However, sideloading works fine, so not really affecting me.

I thought I saw 3.4.3, but I guess I was wrong. Not sure how this deregister, reregister thing works now? Does this mean if I wanted to sell a Kindle on Craigslist (for example) and the buyer wanted to test it by registering the Kindle to his account, I wouldn't be able to use that Kindle on my account if he decided not to buy it? (When I've bought used Kindles in the past I've test registered them to my account to make sure they weren't blacklisted.)

The "latest" version on Amazon is 3.4.2, which I have. Doing a Sync does nothing.
I can find no mention of a 1st of October 2019 deadline on Amazon for any Firmware or device.

No you're not wrong. I'm in the UK and have a Kindle 3G/Keyboard/K3GB, and received an email this morning notifying me of the update:

i.e., mostly CAs & WebKit.

(There's always a lot of stuff patched even with no effective changes because timestamp updates, non-reproducible builds, and re-obfuscation, among other things).

I'd like to find out by installing and updating mine but, alas, it's dead. It's spent far too much time, completely dead and drained in a desk drawer, and it just won't come back to life this time. I've tried all of the fixes I could find online for resetting/restarting/jump starting a dead K3, but I believe it's really dead and gone for good this time.

It's actually not hard to pop open (plastic knife etc) and "new" batteries are on ebay. Not glued.
Though I've not tried fitting a battery, I have one from a friend sitting waiting for one.

Mine is just updated manually via download and seems OK. Not got any email.

Pity the minimum margin is still silly big on all Kindles, even though there is 3 settings.

Here's "that" page in the U.S. It looks like what they've done is separated the newest update from previous updates now (that's not going to be confusing). They have a link on this page to "old" (previous) update page, that I was finding before.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custo...MQC26VQQMM8XSW

At any rate, I guess I need to update the Keyboard (even though I've gotten no notice about it). I also have to check the 4s and Touches.

EDIT: Actually this page shows all the updates. I could swear it didn't have 3.4.3 for the Keyboard (or 4.1.4 for the non-touch Basic) listed last night — but maybe I found an old page.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custo...DD8E64F7AAEF8A

EDIT 2: This is not the link to the page I went to last night, this is just for the Kindle Keyboard and Basic (non-touches). Now I'm more confused than ever.

The Touches are still up to date, the non-touch Basics will need to update (which figures, they're basically the same firmware as the Keyboard).

FWIW, I saw 3.4.3 on my end (Amazon US accessed from France), on a new layout of the update pages, with *every* Kindle ever to grace the earth listed each with their latest version (i.e., no longer on a device-specific page).

Given the timestamps in the tarball, might have been waiting in the wings for quite a while.

(The sourcecode page has also been re-organized, in much the same way, except there nearly every version is listed).

There's actually an easy "hack" for that on the Keyboards and Basic (non-touches). Just one change in a configuration file. If I remember right, however, if you change the margin via settings in your Kindle you have to "re-hack" this again.
