If you have missed the March 22 Kindle update deadline, we have a quick heads-up for you on how to update your Kindle manually for Kindle 4th and 5th generation models and all older Kindle models before 2011.

Inevitably, many of you will have already failed to update and are now looking for information on how to update Kindle manually today – since that is the only option available if you fail to update Kindle via WiFi.
