Kindle owners, here’s something for you. The $199 Kindle Fire tablet from Amazon has got a minor software update. Dubbed Kindle Fire Software version 6.2.2, the update brings not much fanfare to your device. So it is called a minor update. However, the only noticeable difference brought by this update will be a button for full screen browsing in the Silk browser you use in your Kindle Fire tablet.
Amazon is distributing the 183 MB new update as an Over-The-Air update. So usual Kindle Fire tablets when connected to a Wi-Fi network will download and install the new firmware automatically.
If you have not yet got a notification on your device, you may also manually download the firmware and install it before the OTA update hits your tablet.
However, devices running on custom ROMS like CyanogenMod or MIUI, will not get the over the air update.
For the notice of the adventurous, the 6.2.2 update, like its predecessors, will remove the root access to the device. So if you are using a rooted device, you will lose the liberty with this update.
But as bypassing ways are formed instantly in the digital world, here is also a way, thanks to hacker Justin Case with the XDA developers forum.
He has updated his BurritoRoot utility to help users who has installed the 6.2.2 update to re-root their devices. You may download the updated utility from here at the XDA developers.
