Any recommendations on a good case for this thing?
Well, it arrived and I could not sign in no mater how hard I tried. After a lot of searching I found out that the base Kindle 4.1.1 software needed to be updated by hooking my Kindle to a computer (I used a Chromebook). I updated to 4.1.2, then 4.1.3, and finally to 4.1.4, yes you have to do it in that order and do not skip a step or it will not work! Details below. Mine is working great now!
Software updates are here https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=GKMQC26VQQMM8XSW In the section called “Kindle (4th and 5th Generation)”
Thank you for sharing that information!
It was not easy to find that information but the fix was easy and when I was done I was quite pleased with my purchase. I figured I would try and save others my torment.
I ordered a lighted case from the mothership and it cost more than the Kindle.
