Multiple infections on Kindle can't be removed in Mobile Malware Removal Help & Support Posted September 1, 2016 Cheers Armando. Not actually my Kindle. Did not occur to me it could be a resold device, I will ask the question. I could only think a rogue site could drop a 'your kindle needs to be updated' message and flash the rom that way. Is that possible? I think the value of the device may mean it's not worth the hassle of recovering.
