[Update: I uninstalled 2 intrusive hacks, Keybru 0.05 and usbNetwork, and tried to update to 3.3 again. It went on smoothly, and finally showed version 3.3 in the Settings page.
If you have unintrusive ones, like screensavers, font hack or launchpad, you should be able to update without problems, with custom screensavers still work after update of course.]
[Update 2: Just to let you know that I reinstalled those two hacks back successfully without hiccups. (Keybru 0.07, though. I'll cover this great keyboard hack very soon. Stay tuned.)]
Amazon sent an email to me that Kindle Software Update 3.3 is available to download for my Kindle Keyboard.
So I went on and updated my Kindle. It installed smoothly without any error popped up, but after updated it still shows that I have version 3.1. I guess I have to uninstall the hacks I have first. Maybe I’ll do that later.
If you don’t know how to jailbreak, head over to my post here.
