Amazon Kindle update problem
« on: October 22, 2017, 11:33:37 AM »
I want to revert back to my original book set-up on my Kindle.
With the recent update, (before October 2017) the configuration changed.
The book carousel in Home has disappeared.
I can no longer remove books from the Home page and only keep the ones I
haven't read. How can I reverse the update and get the version I'm used to?

Sounds like you have a Fire and not a Kindle since kindles don't have a carousel.

To answer your question, though, I'm not sure you can go backwards. :(

(and moving this to the help section for Fires :) )

Sorry, I should have said I have the Kindle app uploaded to my Android phone and tablet.

In that case, if you can find the apk somewhere you probably can remove the current app and upload the new one that way. Not something I've ever done, though.
