The Kindle Fire is still fresh in the market but has already being provided with an update to its software. Termed version 6.2, the update is available OTA and will download and install automatically on the tablet of connected to Wi-Fi. The update can also be downloaded manually from the Amazon site. Amazon is claiming overall operational efficiency of the tablet post the update so that the buttons will be more responsive while carousel flipping too will be a lot more slow and smooth.
However, one thing the update does is it removes root access to the device. Surely Amazon does not like its tablet to be rooted and hence the update though what is most interesting is that the Kindle Fire can still be rooted once again. Further, those who might have rooted their device to gain access to the Amazon Market will be pleased to know any apps downloaded will continue to function without a whimper.
However, this might just be a warning as future updates are likely to be more stricter about root access. Till then, its a toss between better performance with the update or more choice of app and functionality with rooting.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
