I have an old Kindle (model D01100) running V4.1.1 of their software. Apparently I've missed some deadline where users needed to update the software, and now it can't sync to my account or allow me to read anything apart from what I already had on there.

I followed these instructions

https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/?nodeId=200774090

And downloaded a 4.1.2 .bin file which the computer and I don't know what to do with. I know at some point I need to plug the Kindle via USB into the computer, do I just drag the downloaded .bin file over and that's it?

I've tried downloading the file on a Mac and PC and couldn't get anywhere.
