KINDLEFIRE SOFTWARE UPDATE VERSION 6.1 IS READY
Kindle Fire Software Update, V6.1 is available online, and here's where you can download it, if it's not already on your Kindle Fire.
I understand that some have seen their new Kindle Fires reboot and install an update after they've opened it. Some have noted slowness, which improved on a reboot (maybe the update was on it, ready to be activated).
' To check whether you have Kindle Fire Software V6.1 already, or not -- tap the Quick Settings icon, tap "More," then tap "Device."
If your System Version begins with "Current version: 6.1," you are running the latest software. If your System Version begins with "Current version: 6.0," follow the instructions [at that page] to take advantage of all of the features available for Kindle Fire.
. . .
To update your Kindle, ensure
. you are connected to a Wi-Fi network and that
. your battery is fully charged.
Tap the Quick Settings icon in the upper right corner of your device,
then tap "Sync."
The software update will automatically download in the background and will be applied once download is complete and the device is asleep. '
The above describes a PARTIALLY automated update.
However, if you don't have a WiFi connection at the time and want to do this, you can do a MANUAL update at the software update page for Kindle Fire, where Amazon has step-by-step directions.
