You can set it back to factory specs.

thats as far as the settings will go ..i meant a clean re-install of the operating system so that i can clean the device of all trash that may have accumulated ...

The factory reset will set it back to what it was like, new, out of the box. Everything will be wiped clean.

not possible unless you root it and I don't know of anywhere where you could get a copy to reinstall it

yes, you can, but that would require never turning on your wireless as that's how automatic updates are delivered

apparently it's working fine for those who don't customize their kindles (probably 99.9% of the users), so their good experience remains

myself, I'm lazy and leave it with a black background and now for the screen saver an error message since I have a kindle bought from amazon.fr with special offers but registered to amazon.com and since I'm not in the US I have no option to remove the special offers (I'm too lazy to contact customer service to get rid of them)
