    EDIT - LINKS ARE DEAD NOW

    New Fire OS can be downloaded from Amazon servers. Since I can't post links, go to XDA, find Fire phone sub forum and you'll find all that you need. I'v got this update OTA, but for some reason Amazon didn't push it globally, but as I said, it can be downloaded from Amazon. There are three versions available: AT&T, O2 UK and Deutsche Telekom version. People from US with unlocked phones are using AT&T version, and people from Germany are using Deutsche telekom version.
    Google services was working great for few days but after latest services update from Google services are not working. New stuff in this ROM: smart dialing, ability to change wallpapers on home screen, new lockscreen notifications, ability to disable preinstalled apps, ability to select data speed mode (edge, 3G, LTE) etc...

    I just got the update. Have no idea what has changed. Not even a post or email.

    Edit: Mine is the unlocked GSM version, I'm in the US and currently don't have it attached to a carrier.

    Does this improve battery life significantly?

    In my case, option to set Edge is real battery saver. I'm getting 25-30% more juice with new OS just because of Edge.

    This OS is awesome. Running so much better. I also have all of the Google Play services running flawlessly! Even Google Wallet!

    Yeah, it's the perfect update. Launchers seem to be working flawlessly too.

    I have not experienced that and have taken a lot of photos. Any specifics I can use to help recreate?
