Default Update 6.2 for Fire available

Takes only 5 minutes. I'm not really sure what it fixes.

It erased my google market app and unrooted my kindle! LOL I had to reroot and re-install the market app. At least I think that's what it did. Anyone else have this problem??

So I went to the Device Settings page hoping that I could click the "Update Your Kindle" button. No dice. The button was still "fuzzed" out. So I followed the link and read the instructions. I downloaded the file and went to look for the right USB cable. When I got back, my Kindle was in the process of rebooting. It took a little longer than usual but when it came back up I had 6.2. I thought that was a little weird.

Anyway, no obvious differences yet. I still can't find a way to keep web pages off of the carousel, which was the one thing I was hoping for in an update.

delete your browsing history. It's the only way to delete the recent webpages from your carousel, or install a different launcher!

So I just updated to 6.2 and don't see to many changes, but one I hope is fix is how bad netflix was. I went right to netflix after i downloaded the update and it seemed to work a lot better. I will still have to use it more to see, but the update was suppose to make the fire more stable and process things faster. Also the main thing was to unroot the devices that had been rooted and take the android market away from the people that had downloaded. That is what the rumors were at least.

The update to 6.2 unroots your Kindle ... though you can re-root, it looks like Amazon might make it harder in the future ...

First post (posting restrictions) so URL to information is below.

Glad you could re-root. Is there a way to opt out of updates? I don't have a need to right now because I don't root but it would suck if you have been doing so all along and suddenly an update locks you out.

Most stock updates unroot a phone, don't they?

Has anyone listed exactly what is updated yet?

Anything from a web page, or the last one anyway, will show on the carosel. If you hold down a touch of the item on the carosel it should come up with a [Remove from device] option. I hope so. It doesn't always.
