I understand well that the kernel is rather in alpha stage and in fact the progress made thus far is commendable, but I can't help and remark "Wow, bluetooth adapter support! Giving us back what Amazon so cruelly () prevented us from having"

...When complete this Kernel can seriously transform what the Fire is supposed to be and what is capable of ... not bad for a $200 piece of hardware.

Keep up the good work

Actually I thought it was pretty much electrically proven that, despite earlier assumptions, there is no built-in Bluetooth capability? (Unless something else was found since I last looked this up.) The chip in use in the KF does not actually have an embedded Bluetooth component. (See here, post #23 and onward) So, assuming that's correct, Amazon didn't cruelly keep us from having Bluetooth. It was never there in the first place.

I'm guessing Hash meant possibly having Bluetooth USB adapters??

Yeah that's what I meant as well (hence the smiley), sarcasm doesn't translate well over the net. Anyhow this is a development thread so I'll make sure to keep my posts out.

Again thanks for your great work.

I'll post this in both threads but:

TO ENABLE MASS STORAGE GO TO:
"Settings -> Storage" and then click on the 3 dot "menu" icon in the upper right.
Choose the only option "USB computer connection"
Checkmark "Mass Storage"

I'll get that set as a default in the next build.

So best to power it off when not in use (long press the power button after the OS has shutdown for about 20 seconds to completely turn the device off)

Also, I'm merging the code back into the "ics" branch of the KFire-Android github here:
https://github.com/organizations/KFire-Android

So please double check your local_manifest.xml files and your device/amazon/otter branch if you have a custom build going.
Saw that a lil too late and thought my dog gone computer was cranking out uselessness. Thanks hash, still digging into CWM to see if I can come up with a viable solution. I've confirmed that its not the unzip binaries, it is in fact an issue with CWM.

Found new non-sell out avenues to develop in. Good bye XDA

No. I have phones which use the GB branch for CW Recovery and flash ICS-based ROMs.
