    Heads Up: Update v6.2.2 is out!

    There are reports of an OTA update (v6.2.2) being sent out starting today. As usual, there is no update log posted by Amazon but there is reportedly a new button located on the Silk browser to enable switching to full screen mode. For those who are rooted, it will break root. (at least for now) You'll need to leave wifi on for an automatic update or download the file (link below).

    There is a discussion here

    And another here over at XDA.

    And here is the file (from the same source) if you can't wait: https://s3.amazonaws.com/kindle-fire...1E_3205220.bin

    I haven't yet installed it.


    Edit: Also new is the option to select Flash either ON, ON DEMAND or OFF. It has been reported that the update default is "OFF" so be sure to enable it before you post a complaint that your video stopped working!

    I just turn on my KF today for about a minute, then my KF act "funny" it's turn off then turn on then display : upgrade then bla bla bla ... then it's done . I check "Device" and I got version 6.2.2 . It's like magic ;-)

    By the time you read my post I think you got 6.2.2 already.

    Ok, I'm calling BS on the new update. Since being installed my KF is buggy, screen won't always respond and/or is slow, doesn't open the keyboard in some forums (Cnn) like before, very frustrating. Amazon, FIX THIS UPDATE.....please.

    I got the update and can't tell any difference. I use dolphin most of the time, so I have not tested the new full-screen feature in silk.

    Fear not. Root will be available again -- if not already.

    Considering that literally millions of folks have updated their software to the latest release without encountering these problems, does it occur to you that the problem might not lie with Amazon's update but with your configuration? Have you tried restoring your device to the factory defaults?
