    The 6.3.1 OTA update is going to Kindles now. This update is mostly designed for added parental protections, but as with all updates, it will remove your root access, as well as your custom bootloader and recovery.
    Unless you have special precautions in place to block the OTAs, this update will be installed automatically and you will lose your special goodies.

    If you already have a custom recovery installed (either CWM or TWRP), you can install this zip file, which will update your system to 6.3.1 yet preserve your root access, and your custom bootloader and recovery. It's a 5-minute job which will prevent you from having to reroot and reinstall that stuff. Since your system will then be at 6.3.1, it will circumvent the OTA update. Neall
