Amazon Fire Devices moving to Fire OS 5

Developer preview starts now, new releases in the fall.

https://developer.amazon.com/public/...eloper-Preview

That means Lollipop.

Devices to be updated are tablets, FireTV and FireTV stick, and Fire Phone.
(Suggests they're not done with phones.)

Thank you for the "heads up". I have activated my HD6 for download.

Fire OS 5 Developer Preview

We found no compatible devices associated with this account. The only devices compatible with the Fire OS 5 Developer Preview are the Fire HD 6 and Fire HD 7 (released in 2014).
Fire OS 5 Developer Preview works with Fire HD 6 and Fire HD 7 tablets (2014 editions).

Please note that after upgrading a device to the Fire OS 5 Developer Preview, reverting to Fire OS 4 will factory-reset the device.

Do you have to be an app developer to use the preview? Or can anyone get it?

Oh never mind, I see that you do.

Oh, cool, I didn't realize I didn't have to have an app in development.

How long did it take for you to get the new OS?

Note that it is a Beta OS.
Stability is not going to be high at this point. And some of the new features may not be present (to keep unwelcome attention at bay).
But if you like to play with new stuff, knock yourself out.

Me, I'm just happy to know there's updates coming...

Now our friend Mr. Torres is correct you must be a type of person that can handle ALOT of bugs as the software is very new in its development.

now that I said that it took 5 mins after I approved the HD6 as a development device and the OS was downloading!~

I do like to play with new stuff. I got the update! My girls are going to love when this gets released!

Can't open the kindle books app! Doesn't matter to me, but it is kind of funny.

I had that happen to my two year old FIRE HD 8.9.
I had to reset to factory settings to get it back.

Yep I can't open up audiobooks. I knew it would be buggie and I have an HDX 8.9 and a HDX 7 to REALLY use...
