How To Manually Update Your Kindle

Kindle is very famous device; it’s automatically updated, when new update arrived. Some time people missed past updates because they not get the emails, post cards, and phone calls from Amazon about the update.

If you are the one person who didn’t get the update in time, don’t be panic. There is another way for you to install the updates. You can manually update you kindle device without any hassle.

The process will require a computer, your Kindle, and USB cable to connect the two, and you should also fully charge your Kindle before you start just to make sure that you have enough power to complete the process.

Here are the few steps to manually update your Kindle.
  • The first and foremost step is that determine which kindle model you have. This is very important to comparing the right software version for your model and downloading the appropriate update.
  • After that open the setting menu, then open the dropdown menu and select the "device info" option. Here you can see which version of the firmware is currently running on your device.

If the firmware number matches one of the numbers on this help page then you already have the update. Also, if you can't find your Kindle on that second page then you don't need the update at all.

But if the firmware number is different then you'll need to keep going and install the update.
