I'm on 13.3.1.0. But if I want to update to 13.3.2.2, do I need to update in order up to 13.3.2.2 or just update with the 13.3.2.2 bin?
I not a 100% sure but I want a correct answer.

If you put the 13.3.2.2 .bin file in the /storage partition of the kindle you can then swipe down to settings -> device -> software updates and it will be there. Then click update. If you switch on the internet and it will automatically do things for you, and rebooting and all that. I think that should answer your question.

I know about manual updating and over the air updating (which I'll never use). I'm looking for a sure answer, is each update bin the full system update or is it upgraded in update steps (ex. On 13.3.1.0 --> 13.3.2.0 --> to upgrade to 13.3.3.0)? I think the bin file holds the full updated system but I'm not quite sure.

I have opened one up before with 7zip archive manager, seemed to have absolutely everything, including all the preloaded apps (Silk, Camera & etc.). Based on that I made a little hunch, that the build.prop is the key to the update.I got it modified and put together back into a .bin, the kindle DID recognise it as an update but it failed to validate. Now I think that is because I didn't get it signed, and after some reasearch I found the Dalvik VM signature and and try to sign the "update" with that. If that fails, then I would like to use binwalk -a linux tool that allows people to analyse .bin files. With that I want to get the file signature from the new update- sign the 13.3.1 with that sginature and "update". I will attempt live booting ubuntu or something- and then use binwalk, but I'll try and see how it goes. Im telling you about this because I think that if I were to make a new thread Amazon would patch that sort of stuff.
I hope this might work- cuz if it does no waiting for ninety days, right?
If it works.
Which it might.

Just update to 13.3.2.2. The only differences between 13.3.2.1 and 13.3.2.2 are mainly with WhisperLink and WhisperPlay to support the release of Amazon's fireTV:
