I got a launcher rolling for them, but those god awful lockscreen images are a pain. I found a video for a no root solution, but the guy has his app to where you can't download it until you do a survey...but even then it won't download.

I don't have my Fire rooted and I use the application "Rotating Wallpaper"

There are some pretty good tutorials on you tube from other xda members on how to set up your tablet to look like this. Took me forever to set it up but I love the way it turned out

Yea you can use pretty much and kind of icon creators or widgets. The best launcher i've found though is adw ex because you can add launcher actions to screens. That seems to be the most important part of "hubs". Just check you tube for videos on how to set it up. There are some really good ones from some of the members on xda.

Illustrated
After rootin I wanted my home screen to be about what I primarily use my tablet for. I borrowed a couple of the graphics from the old google image search and modified them to fit the illustrated look I wanted.

Im running CM7...
with
-Beautiful Widgets
-Desktop Visualizer for the jumbo icons.
-ADW Launcher

I used Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to make the icons.

What app are you using for the Folders on the Home screen? I went back to stock ROM also to get the Mahogany look but I am unable to use shortcuts or folders on GO Launcher, any ideas? Also I haven't been able to use PicSpeed or Quickpic for wallpapers, is this restricted by Stock ROM? What are you using for wallpapers? BTW can't wait for Mahogany, good luck and God's speed. I will try to post my screen shot of a Kindle-esque home screen.

Thanks

Those are just the basic Go Launcher EX folders. Probably the nicest detail of Go Launcher actually because everything else is pretty naff.

I used the zip provided here to change the wallpapers: http://droidpirate.com/2011/11/20/am...ge-wallpapers/

You don't need any additional apps, it just works. I would still use the apps and SAVE the wallpaper, but then unload them, copy and paste them into the files and resave them in Photoshop or something. It's a limitation of the stock ROM yeah.

And thank you for your kind words!
