I've been following the same exact steps. However, for the sake of completeness I re-downloaded the firmware update file from Amazon, kept it in root folder. I also don't have the update your Kindle greyed out. I'm able to select it and get a message of your software will update. However, when I press OK, the kindle just boots up/restarts. I don't see any updating Kindle screen.

Also for the past few days my Kindle randomly restarts

That might be hint of failing internal storage, but it's usually a tiny bit more obvious...

If your device is still on a JB-friendly FW, you *could* try a factory reset, but it might not change anything.

Has that Kindle's case ever been opened?
That description sounds like a loose battery or other cable connection.

Have never opened the kindle case. Not reached that level. ��

However, it has dropped a few times. Will try factory resetting and redo the steps. Btw, I'm on FW 5.3.3

Most likely, it has knocked something loose.
Just put it back together.

Check our "Master Index" for teardown(s), it is rather straight forward.
