Then if you're not interested in rooting, turn on airplane mode power off device and give it to whoever wants to use it let them know not to take off airplane mode before rooting or it will force update then who knows..
Correct, I am rooted and still on 188.8.131.52., not on 184.108.40.206.
Awesome, I followed your advice and it worked. Thanks!
For those who want step by step instruction how to make your Kindle HDX "look like new", follow the steps here
You will also need to modify the build.prop
before you try to update.
Then download the update file
, drop it on the sdcard (aka Kindle / Internal Storage), reboot and go to the System Updates section and finish the update.
If you don't modify the build.prop, you will get an error "Unable to complete update because the update file is an earlier version than the one on your device".
You will also need to do Reset to Factory Defaults, because even after the update you will still have your icons like Safestrap, SuperSU, but they will not be working without the root.
Now you have a clean Kindle HDX.
Don't forget to disable the updates again if needed!
