Amazon has rolled out a new firmware package targeted at some of its Kindle devices, namely build 126.96.36.199, which implements new features, as well as general improvements and other performance enhancements.
Specifically speaking, the current release can display the percent of battery remaining, allows owners to return borrowed books, and adds labels under each icon on the standard toolbar for improved navigation.
In addition to that, users can now save multiple reading settings (such as font, boldness level, and orientation) from the main menu and quickly switch between them, as well as swipe up on the home screen and see additional tips, recommendations, and more based on the reading habits.
When it comes to compatible devices, Amazon has provided firmware 188.8.131.52 for its Kindle (7th and 8th gen), Kindle Oasis (8th and 9th gen), Kindle Paperwhite (6th and 7th gen), and Kindle Voyage (7th gen) models.
Regarding installation, check your tablet’s currently installed firmware version and make sure the software revision powering the device isn’t either newer or matching this immediate release. For that, go to Menu > Settings > System Updates, and you should see the current build.
Now, if all is OK, save the appropriate downloadable .bin file for your tablet, copy it into the device’s internal storage, and monitor the transfer to make sure no problems are encountered.
Afterward, go to Menu > Settings > System Updates (path might differ from a model to another) and follow all instructions displayed on-screen for a complete and successful installation.
Therefore, download Amazon Kindle Firmware 184.108.40.206 that is designed for your tablet, apply the new firmware on it, and constantly check our website to stay “updated one minute ago.”
