Kindle Fire 6.2.1 Update Rolling Out, Improves Performance
Seems like Android tablet makers are on a roll these days. After Barnes & Noble, Amazon has also officially begun pushing out an OTA update to its inexpensive Kindle Fire, which ups the version number to 6.2.1 and, well, breaks root access. On a positive note, there are also some substantial improvements: scrolling is smoother, WiFi access can be locked with a password (to prevent kids from spending all your money through Amazon’s shops, we presume), and, most importantly, you can finally remove those recently used items from the carousel. Overall performance and touchscreen response are said to be greatly improved as well.
Head over to the forum thread to report your experiences with the update, and whether you have face any issues.
