Kindle firmware version 5.10.3

Firmware version 5.10.3 is now available for Kindle PW2 and later models.

The download page doesn't have any information on what has changed. The What's New screen on the device shows "Performance improvements and other general enhancements."

I always wait a month or so before installing any new firmware version. Let the "early adopters" find the bugs .

You turn off the WiFi to prevent the update?

I'm about to receive my first cellular enabled Kindle, I wonder if leaving it on cellular would avoid update downloads.

@Almamida: IIRC Kindle will never use 3G connection to download OTA updates, it will only download them while you're on WiFi.


p.s. I've only owned WiFi only models of Kindles, so wait for someone else to confirm my "recollection".

I leave my Kindle permanently in aeroplane mode.

You're right. No OTA updates via 3G.

I prefer fresh bugs to stale ones. Updated 4 Kindles: onward and upward!

Still I wish they would add Immersion Reading and ‘real’ TTS on the BT Kindles.

Thank you. Then I might almost exclusively use the cellular connection. I'll see how the battery handles it.

I'm hoping "Performance improvements and other general enhancements" is code for your battery won't suck as bad as before.

Are you getting a battery life that's poorer than Amazon advertise?

Nor would one expect there to be. There's always a period of at least a couple of weeks between the release of new firmware and the start of it being pushed to devices (presumably to allow time for bugs to be found) after which it's gradually pushed over a period of months.
