I have a KFHD 7" (2012 model), it's rooted, the latest TWRP is installed and I'm currently running Kinology. From time to time it seems to be unnecessarily freezing and overheating (this used to happen for a long time now, but it doesn't seem to affect its performance from what I've seen) and I'm thinking of trying something new since it's already acting up.
I am currently using the latest Kinology, after I updated it to the latest version the freezing seemed to reduce visibly, but I still want to change the ROM. I was between PAC-MAN (http://forum.pac-rom.com/Thread-4-4-...ndle-Fire-HD-7) and CM11 (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2543455).
I was going to go for PAC-MAN but I'm having some issues figuring out which the latest stable version is, since they say they have updated to 4.4 but in their downloads I can't find it in the folders with the stables. I've asked many times in their site and their thread about KFHD here in xda but I haven't received an answer yet. I could just go for CM but I have some questions about it...
So what I need the rom I'll choose to do is:
- run the kindle reading app normally (I don't care about the carusel, I just want normal access to my mobi files
- run games ok
- not freeze for no reason (I mean, the main purpose of flashing something new is to make my tablet run faster not slower)
- have the facebook messenger work properly (since I installed kinology, unless I have "chat heads" manually opened and left to run, I get no notifications about new messages)
- have the wifi and bluetooth working
So I need people who have CM or PAC-MAN to tell me if either of these roms has these features. Oh, also, I've seen there's some feature they call "OTA". What is that? I think when I rooted my kindle I had to make sure to disable those so that it wouldn't get randomly updated and undo my root? If someone could explain that to me I'd be grateful!
Oh and one more thing. With custom roms such as those two, are amazon's apps installed and running in the background for no reason just like they do if you have the stock rom, or are they disabled/uninstalled...?
