The first gen and HD Kindle have people active on the 5.0 development, just wondering if power user here is working on a 2nd gen rom for us.

No, I think he posted in the right section. And no I don't think anyone is working on a 5.0 ROM sorry, no one really builds for the Otter2 (KindleFire2) anymore but me and I rarely do that. Since Hashcode moved on to work for Linaro we are pretty much dead in the water, sorry bud.

Ok, thanks man. Do you think it would be too much work to port Hashcode's Kindle 1st gen ROM to the 2nd gen?

Well... Porting is not possible.
I have a first gen. What hashcode did was he made a new partition layout, bpotloader, and recovery for it, which made it COMPLETELY different from Amazon's device. So hiss 5.0 for pur device is OtterX. Anyways, ROMs can't be ported between two devices anymore. So unless hashcode is working for it, its done.

Porting between the two has never gone well..can I try and make a 5.0 ROM yes. Its been one of those things I've been meaning to do just haven't gotten around to doing yet.

hashcode pushed all the changes for compiling 5.0 to github, just a matter of making a few changes in otter2 device tree. I will compile it today and see what needs to be done. Don't expect too much because cm-12.0 is still alpha.
Update
cm-12.0 uses an android partition layout, hashcode uses a different bootloader and twrp for OtterX. Unless someone can make cm-12.0 work on Amazon partition layout we won't get it.
