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.
