The latest software versions should automatically download and install on your Kindle Fire when it is connected wirelessly; however, you can also manually download the software and transfer the update to your device via USB cable if you don't usually have the Kindle Fire connected to wifi.

First, determine the current software version on your Kindle Fire before downloading and installing a software update.

Then click the link below to download the software update to your computer:

  1. From your computer, go to Kindle Fire Software Updates and download the applicable software update file.
  2. Transfer the software update file to your Kindle Fire:
    1. Turn on your Kindle Fire and unlock the screen.
    2. Connect your Kindle Fire to your computer using the USB cable.
    3. Open the Kindle Fire drive (titled Kindle), and then drag and drop the software update file into the Internal storage folder.


  3. Monitor file transfer and disconnect: After the file transfer is complete, disconnect the USB cable from your Kindle Fire and your computer.
  4. Start the software update:
    1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to open Quick Settings, and then tap More.
    2. Tap Device, and then tap About.
    3. Tap Update Your Kindle. Your Kindle Fire will restart during the software update. After the restart, the message "Kindle is upgrading" will appear on the screen.
