Drag and drop the new update file from your computer to the kindleupdates folder on your Kindle drive. Do not drop the file into any other folder on the Kindle drive.

④.Monitor file transfer and disconnect: Check your file transfer progress to ensure file transfer to your Kindle is complete before disconnecting. After the file has transferred successfully, disconnect the USB cable from your Kindle and your computer.

⑤.Start the software update: On the Home screen, swipe down from the top and select More. Tap Device, and then tap About. Then tap Update Your Kindle. Your Kindle will restart during the update. After the restart, you will see Your Kindle is Updating.

I'm downloading the update file to see what kind of "manipulation" can be done.

None. Don't even bother. You can't even do it with the original UI.

As I'm browsing the bin file trying to find the missing link for Instant Video, I have noticed a few things.

There are files for USB host in there since its ICS, USB host may work as long as the hardware support it. The Special offers icon appears on /system/app/dtcp_apk.apk, maybe this is all that needs to be removed to get rid of ads.

Mine came with 7.1.1. I recharged it overnight and when I went to try and upgrade it was already upgraded to 7.1.5.
