Anyone get a software update yet? I read on the Amazon site that 2.0.2 was sent to a few K2's
I have it....I was surprised this morning when I saw version number 2.0.2 because I hadn't received the earlier update. OTH, I guess I shouldn't be so surprised. This update probably included the fixes from 'both updates'.

I have no idea what is in the update though and I haven't noticed any problems anyway.

I got impatient and turned off my screensaver hack, d/l'd the file and manually updated - then re-installed the screenhack.

everything is working fine, not sure what the update did, but I'm now at 2.0.2

So it might be true that this update will mess things up if screensaver hack is installed.

I guess I'll do manually then.  ;)  I suppose with every update we need to re-install the screensaver hack.

Unfounded, yes, but also probably fairly safe.  My expectation is that they'll continue to support the KK fully until the last one sold is out of warranty, or they don't have any left to replace failed devices, whichever comes first.  I don't expect any software updates for that reason. . . .but who knows?

I guess they don't plan on giving KK owners updates anymore. :'(
Well, from the very fact that Amazon is completely silent about what these updates actually DO, I suspect they are bug fixes for problems found (many owners have complained that the Kindles spontaneously restart, freeze etc.). I am sure these kinds of updates were quite common in the early days of KK, but no longer needed! You should feel lucky to be on a stable platform!

I also restored the default screensavers, manually updated to 2.02, and reapplied the screensaver hack - no problems whatsoever. Someone reported on the Mobileread forum that page turns appear to be faster, and it does seem that way. :)

I agree. Page turns seems faster.

OK, stupid question.  I just moved the update file to the root of my Kindle.  What do I do now to update.  I tried a hard reset but nothing happened?
