Amazon Kindle Fire

Amazon is pushing out Software Version 6.2.2 for the Kindle Fire over the air, and it's also available for manual installation. Here's what's new:

  • Enhances fluidity and performance.
  • Improves support for manually setting up e-mail providers in the e-mail app
  • Adds full-screen browsing 

The upate is currently pushing out over the air. But if you just can't wait, you can also install it manually. Here's how:

  1. Make sure you have at least 40 percent battery charge.
  2. Download the update-kindle-6.2.2_D01E_3205220 file from Amazon here.
  3. Plug in your Kindle Fire and open a file explorer. Move the update-kindle-6.2.2_D01E_3205220 file to the kindleupdates folder.
  4. Disconnect your Kindle Fire.
  5. Go to the quick settings at the top of the screen. Choose More>Update your Kindle.
  6. Sit back and relax. It'll restart a couple times.

And that's it!

Or you can download the bin from the Kindle's browser and then use a file utility app to move it to the update folder and run the update; no need to connect it to an outside computer like some Apple product. That's what I did last night.

that's exactly what I just have done ! no computer needed. I'm tired of keeping re-rooting my kindle fire so I'm happy with stock launcher for reading books, ADW launcher + android market for daily use :D

Can you still root with this version?
