We have a new, free software update available for Kindle (4th Generation) and Kindle (5th Generation).This update automatically downloads and installs on your Kindle when connected wirelessly; however, you can also manually download the software and transfer the update to your device via USB cable.
Once you have the first four characters, you can reference the following list to determine exactly which model you have.
Save yourself some time and use Ctrl F to search for the character string.
Once you’ve double checked your serial number against the list, it’s time to grab the actual update files.
Determine the current software version on your Kindle before downloading and installing a software update.
For more information, go to Determine Your Software Version.
Now, with the discrepancy between the most recent version and our version confirmed, we can download the update file.
