I've recently upgraded (automatically) my PW2 to the specified software version and I just hate some of the new "features" of it. For example(the worst thing I found and could not fix yet), the book library. In my library (95% received via email feature) I have a lot of books that are read, multiple started and a gigantic amount of unread books, that are listed after every other mentioned type. Now, previously I just needed to scroll down to the right one, click on it and it opened. Now, I need to find it (on, for example, page 15), click on it, scroll back to the first page of the list and click again. Why? As it seems, the book gets "downloaded" again, for some reason, then since it's the last downloaded it appears the first one in the list and only after that I may open it. Why the hell did Amazon implement this - I can't even imagine, but maybe anyone knows how to always have them downloaded automatically now?
GO back to previous home screen menu following these steps:
- Go to home screen and press menu button (It is on top right of screen)
- Select settings
- Select device options
- Select personalize your kindle
- Select advanced options
- Turn off home screen view
and hopefully now you are back to your old screen view.
Let me know if it worked.
I don't know if your Kindle qualifies, but Amazon got enough complaints about the recent upgrade to OS 5.0, that certain Kindles qualify to have the software returned to its prior operating system. My Kindle 6 HD was horrible in OS5, so I contacted Amazon and rolled it back. They had to read me a stupid paper describing all the 'benefits' of the new operating system and made me agree before downgrading my Kindle, but they did it. Give it a shot!
