    Ha! Just beat me to posting this! I waited until I'd DLed the file before coming here.

    I've liked the new reading format for the web so far. I was really hoping for something that would make the carousel optional, but while dreaming, I'd really like a Ferrari too.

    The nice thing about Android, don't like it, you can always change it!

    Put it on charger if not fully charged and do a restart. It might restart itself as it hits lock screen. It might have downloaded the update in background. Mine did just as I was pushing file from my laptop. I had to go in and delete file after update processed. Wish they would use notifications to let us know if it's downloading update in background.

    After I downloaded the file, I had to move it to Kindleupdates before my Update button was active. When I downloaded it, it was in the Download folder.

    Make sure to press the 'Sync' button from the menu and then put the Fire in sleep mode. Once I did that he update began to download. Not very intuitive, but that's how I did it.

    Best enhancement: the brightness control actually works now. Previously the screen would dim down to about 50% on the slider but no more resulting in a screen that's way too bright in a dimly lit or dark room. The slider now is effective through all its travel AND the screen's lowest brightness setting is much more appropriate for viewing in the dark.
