Nothing to see here, just a post for myself.

I have a Kindle Fire, and man I love it. This is my third or fourth one, as I’ve always been a fan.

However, lately, this sucker has slowed way down. I don’t want to do a factory reset, mainly because I hate losing the books I’ve put on it. I’m not referring to the books I bought at Amazon, those will push down easily enough; I’m talking about the books I moved over for review and such. (Side note, Calibre is amazing and is a must own for Kindle — or any eBook platform — users. I like it so much, I donate to it.) It’s very well possible that those downloaded books will stay. I haven’t even looked into it that much. But I hate resetting anything to factory settings because I have things just so. I don’t want to take time getting things just so again if I don’t have to.

That said, I’m testing some things. I will update this as I go along so I can refer back to it.

Clear the cache (I found this here):

  • Power off.
  • Hold the volume down and power buttons.
  • When the boot screen appears, release the power button.
  • Use the volume button to navigate to format cache.
  • Press the power button to select.
  • After formatting, reboot.

So far so good, but I’m going to keep searching around to see what else I can do.
