For those of you who have flashed the wrong firmware on your phone and you are stuck now, or if you just want to get the bin file to the 4.6.1 upgrade for US unlocked version, here it is:

Try
https://mega.nz/#!Ul9GjJYa!XX8Ev0XkHeROwGvm_L_jWklgketsBL-iIqU_T3k9ah0
Or
https://mega.co.nz/#!Ul9GjJYa!XX8Ev0XkHeROwGvm_L_jWklgketsBL-iIqU_T3k9ah0

Note that after the upgrade your bootloader is updated and you cannot downgrade to an earlier version. Any problems after the flashing can be fixed with a factory reset.

Enjoy.

Thank you very much. Is this the newer than german bin file? 461013320 ?
Update;
Yes it seems like the newer than 3320 because I didn't get the 'newer file installed on your phone' software version is 461013820 now.
Clean install no AT&T hotspot service or app in the menu.
It is running flawlessly until now.
Thank you again.

Great update, solved all the little issues from the German update including Google Play and Google Settings (I had been unable to disable OK Google before to save battery).
Thansk!

1000Thanks najoor for uploading the new .bin file, for the Fire-Phone USA Unlocked!!

As some users here, I also has noticed that this new file have a more recent number, than the versions for the UK and Germany...

I also has noticed that with this USA Unlocked update, all Fire-Phone users here, have reported that now the Google-Play-Store and the Google-Play-Services APPs are working flawlessly again!!...

Could it be that Amazon has fixed something, to make the Google-Play-Store work again?...

Since the USB OTG Function is available in the Fire-Phone and only have to be enabled by software, I would appreciate if someone please could check if the USB OTG function is now working with the latest update?

Does anyone have noticed any other additions, fixes or changes??

You are welcome.

I don't think amazon has intentionally fixed Google play store. It is not in their interest anyway for the users to use play store because amazon has its own competing store. My guess is that they have fixed a big that affected many things including play store.

My observation of this update is that it is superior to previous versions in terms of speed and battery life. Another great advantage of this update is that now you can disable many of the apps, including the amazon native and system apps. It makes one think that you almost don't need root...

Another interesting point is that depending on what Sim card you put in the phone it loads a different mobile network menu. For example if you put an AT&T sim you will get a menu item called search for AT&T small cell or something like that. There are also a number of additional features some of which I don't necessarily need; changing wallpaper, miracast, find your phone, disable 4G etc.

100% Agree najoor, when you said:

"I don't think amazon has intentionally fixed Google play store. It is not in their interest anyway for the users to use play store because amazon has its own competing store. My guess is that they have fixed a big that affected many things including play store. "

That's what I meaned, that Amazon has fixed something, that has made the Google-Play-Store started to work again...

Do you has tested the new Bluetooth 4 and if the USB OTG Function works?

Thanks to the OP for this link.

I installed on my US Market, Unlocked 32GB Fire Phone this afternoon, and everything is working great, including Google Play and Hangouts. I have not noticed any problems at all so far, and have restarted the phone a few times just to be sure.

Used it to update my German Telecom phone, inlocked with code from telecom. Everything went fine. After update I had to change wifi channels to US on my router to be able to have wifi connection. Wifi is ok now. I noticed that with this build I have quick reply delete option in email notification in dropdown statusbar.

usb otg

I see no evidence of OTG functionality. I hooked up multiple usb devices, and nothing was recognized.
.I know the OTG cable is fine.

    The Mega upload link is for 'update-kindle-juniper-35.4.6.1_user_461013820.bin' is that correct? Could someone post an MD5 hash?

    It is the correct file, despite the name. That is how amazon named the file on their servers but it is in fact for the fire phone. If I find time later today I will add the MD5 to the OP.
