All of your brooding over this minor 100k patch and their patch notes will be like:
- Fixed framebuffer refresh for 411 settings page
- Corrected text in credits and copyright information list
- Improved social networking features

I did! I live in NY. Yesterday my Kindle (US WiFi version) arrived. Went to update manually... file is being deleted and option greyed out.
Found this thread. I have 3.0.2 (553210206).

Nothing on amazon kindle forums about 553210206.
In google this here is the only result.
Btw it is not 3.0.3 or 3.0.4 disguised. At least m.gmail.com still wont let me type username and/or password.

Anyone within the US/Canada received a 553210206 yet?

Contact Amazon

Well, my WiFi issue seems to be solved (see post 24. I did nothing, just stopped activating.

I can't speak English fluently. So I didn't contact Amazon. But Kindle owners interested in that 3.0.4 update, shown as 3.0.2, can contact them in these phone numbers:

Quote:
...you can call us directly at 1-866-321-8851 or 1-206-266-0927 if you're calling from outside the U.S...
Hope this helps.

So now what we can do is only waiting right?
Anyway, if I want to install jailbreak and fondhack on it, should I use the 0.2N version (since it displays as 3.0.2) or the 0.4N version (since it was said actually higher version?)

Same here

My kindle arrived yesterday, build number 553210206, can't install update 3.03.

I have succesfully installed The Jailbreak (newest revision) and Screensaver Hacks though, no problems there. The Keyboard localization hack won't install either, may need an update.

Just my experience, hope Amazon will clarify this soon.

The update file needs to be updated with the new build number that comes with these new 3.0.2 Kindles. You can rebuild the update package with kindle_update_tool.

Thanks

I kinda shy away from this, as I'm not sure the Uninstall works as intended then. I'm patient with this feature, will wait for an official update I guess.

No need to rebuild, it is enough to download new version which works with Post-Xmas version http://www.audi-bel.com/kindle/update_keybru_0.04.zip

I notice that the instructions on the Amazon page say that your serial number should begin B00A...

Mine, bought in the UK, begins B008. And, yes, the upgrade doesn't work here either.

It differs depending on what type of Kindle you've got.

B006 = 3G+WiFi with a AT&T SIM which is the one you get in North America and a few other places.
B00A = 3G+WiFi with a Vodafone SIM which generally is the one you get in Europe.
B008 = WiFi only

You need to get the B008 file for your Kindle as it is a Kindle WiFi. It will reject the one for the B00A 3G+WiFi Kindle.

Hi all, FYI - this is a reply from Kindle support about updating firmware 3.0.2 553210206 to 3.0.3 version:


Quote:
I'm sorry to inform you that, you will not be able to update the software version of your Kindle to the early preview 3.0.3 version because the software version of your Kindle already has all the latest features and performance enhancements included in 3.0.3. This software version came pre-installed on your Kindle and is not available to other Kindle users.

So you don’t need to update the software version of your device further at this time with 3.0.3, but you will be able to install all future software releases.

Its only the 3.0.2 (553210206) version that can't be currently updated. You had 3.0.2 (529960105) which can be updated to 3.0.3 (536720111)
