Amazon just pushed 6.2.1 to devices. It breaks any rooted devices and superoneclick no longer works it gets stuck on step #7 with this error:

export TEMPRANDOM=11153;export PS1=END:$TEMPRANDOM;mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/by-name/system /system

mount: Operation not permitted

END:11153export PS1=""

Hopefully an updated root solution will be created soon.

Ugh, is there any way to block this update? I hate how Amazon auto-pushes and installs the updates.

No practical ways. CM7 might be worth looking into. I believe it breaks auto updates.

Yep, just got an update pushed to my device, and oneclick no longer works. Great.

Seriously, I think I'm gonna return this thing. Get a Transformer, or even just get a BlackBerry PlayBook instead until something better comes out (that I feel is worth dropping a lot of money on).

Do not get a playbook! That is the worst device out there! I used it for a day and its just a huge dissapointment. Its depressing to use. I immediately returned it and I never want one even if it is free.

The transformer prime on the other hand is pretty awesome. Ive preordered mine and I'm really excited about it.

Does the update at least FIX anything (i.e. light sensor, touch screen)?

I'm afraid to turn mine on when I get home from work!

Yeah, I'm on CM7 too, so quite glad at the moment (even if I don't like it that much)! I'm sure some bright spark will fix zergrush, or come up with another exploit to use. Has anyone tried gingerbreak, or the other option instead of running it as auto?

I will look at the wife's one who is stock, and see if she got the update...and may try this out.
