--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The software update will include:

Kindle FreeTime, a tablet experience just for kids allowing parents to set daily screen time limits, and give access to appropriate content for each child.
A setting so customers can control whether or not personalized recommendations appear below the carousel on the device homepage.
Ability for customers to set the default device language to one of six languages, including English (US), English (UK), German, French, Italian, and Spanish.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's how to download the Kindle software update version 10.2.1 and transfer it to your Kindle via USB:
1.Determine your software version: Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap More. Tap Device, and then tap About. If you see a System Version other than "Current Version: 10.2.1," proceed to step 2.


2.Download your software: Click the following link to download the software update file directly to your computer: Download Software Update 10.2.1

3.Transfer software to your Kindle Fire: Turn on your Kindle Fire and unlock the screen. Then connect it to your computer using a USB cable. On your Kindle Fire drive (the drive is typically displayed as a "device" icon), open the Internal storage folder. 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.

6.Once the update is complete and your Kindle has restarted: If your software update was successful, your System Version should now read 10.2.1.

Thanks!
I'm study the update-script now.

if we can change the MLO, i think it can be used in 1st kindle fire.

it's added :
Code:
# Script used to flash MLO
#
# if /proc/product_name doesn't exist then we flash by default do not flash anything
if is_substring("Otter2 Eng", file_getstring("/proc/product_name"))
then
    ui_print("Copy MLO-AMZN-4430-ENG into xloader partition...");
    package_extract_file("MLO-AMZN-4430-ENG", "/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/xloader");
    ui_print("Copy u-boot.bin into bootloader partition...");
    package_extract_file("u-boot.bin", "/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/bootloader");
    ui_print("Copy boot.img into boot partition...");
    package_extract_file("boot.img", "/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/boot");
else 
    if is_substring("Otter2 Dummy", file_getstring("/proc/product_name"))
    then
       ui_print("Copy MLO-TI-4430-ENG into xloader partition...");
       package_extract_file("MLO-TI-4430-ENG", "/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/xloader");
       ui_print("Copy u-boot.bin into bootloader partition...");
       package_extract_file("u-boot.bin", "/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/bootloader");
       ui_print("Copy boot.img into boot partition...");
       package_extract_file("boot.img", "/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/boot");
    else
	if is_substring("Otter2 Prod", file_getstring("/proc/product_name"))
	then
	   ui_print("Copy MLO-AMZN-4430-OTTER2-PROD into xloader partition...");
	   package_extract_file("MLO-AMZN-4430-OTTER2-PROD", "/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/xloader");
	   ui_print("Copy UBOOT-AMZN-4430-OTTER2-PROD into bootloader partition...");
	   package_extract_file("UBOOT-AMZN-4430-OTTER2-PROD", "/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/bootloader");
	   ui_print("Copy BOOT-AMZN-4430-OTTER2-PROD into boot partition...");
	   package_extract_file("BOOT-AMZN-4430-OTTER2-PROD", "/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/boot");
	else
	   ui_print("MLO is not flashed ");
	endif;
    endif;
endif;

Hey I just wanted to comment that no app from the second gen kindle fire works for me. They just force close. However for the HD I got setup running but it crashed at the end. So maybe it would be easier to port the HD rom.

Hi everyone, looks like the kindle fire HD and the upcoming nook tablets HDs have a similarity between the TI OMAP processors.

On the kindle fire HD it has the TI OMAP 4460 and the nook tab HD's have the OMAP TI 4470, both dual layered.

Does anyone have the binary drivers for the kindle fire HD? Or if someone has a git repo on this device for kernel development? Kind of curious if the binary drivers are in the same family or if there is discrepancy between the drivers between those two processors. Looking to possibly port over what work done here to the upcoming Nook HDs and get my team up and going on kernel development. Also interested in the sound codec drivers.

What work we do can also be shared here with you guys also.

I think if you removed the files and lines in the updater-script that flash any sort of bootloader or recovery, you should be fine.

If you can strip everything out except the system ROM itself, then you should be able to get that alone to install via TWRP without issue. It'd be like installing any other ROM.
