Hey Loki,

USB does charge but it's very slow. AC should work though.
Plug it with the AC adapter for a few minutes and it should be fine.

First of all, great work. The #3 ROM with #6 kernel is already the smoothest experience I've had with the Fire.

For reference, my observations so far:

HWA mostly works in browser flash, twitchtv app, YouTube app, MX video player. Sometimes videos in YouTube or MX will not start and cause FC.
Charging using wall charger works fine, but the LED indicator will only show that its charging while its not sleeping. While sleeping, the charging LED will come on for a second or two at somewhat regular intervals. This might be related to what's been observed, namely
High battery drawn during sleep. It's nearly as high as during use.
I have no screen striping/flickering/banding issues whatsoever
Google Earth doesn't work

Installed by:
Boot to TWRP 2.1, wipe cache/dalvik/system/factory reset, install #3 ROM and #6 kernel immediately after. Boot to system, then back to recovery, flash gapps, boot to system. All lovely

Maybe it's not really powered down. Try unplugging from charger, then press the power button for 20 seconds, then let go of the power button and plug in the charger. It should come on immediately.

Nah its not insecure. It won't allow you to login unless you know the password. Seems that Tapatalks servers use the MAC address of the device to keep track. As soon as the Mac address issue gets resolved, it will stop doing it.

I had documented my original MAC addresses.

In terminal emulator/or adb shell (wifi turned off)

su
mount -o remount rw /system
calibrator set nvs_mac /system/etc/firmware/ti-connectivity/wl1271-nvs.bin XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

You should backup original wl1271-nvs.bin before using this method.
if you have problem can restore file and reboot.

If someone could verify this for me I will edit/delete post if neccessary.

Thanks
I tried doing the steps you've described and now my mac address is no longer 00:d2:8b:43:9f:fd. It works!

How exactly does one use USB OTG? I would like to use my kindle to take notes in class but would rather use an actual keyboard than the touch one. Anyone?

With my fire powered all the way down (power button 20 sec press) the charging light was not on while plugged into AC power but it fully charged.

Ditto (kinda?); Left my KF plugged into a wall charger overnight, but left it on. Woke up in the morning and it was fully charged. The charging light was behaving weirdly, so I just checked in the battery section of the setting to make sure it was charging, and indeed it was.

And I'm going to assume if people are having "banding" issues with their KF is not the same as what I've seen the entire time I've owned my KF; if I leave a page/app open for a bit that has a white background and dark text, images, once I leave that page/app, the image hangs around for a bit (ghosts? whatever), but then goes around after a bit of use. This has happened on every ROM/kernel I've owned, regardless of display brightness.

TBH, for what I use my KF for, the kernel as it stands right now is pretty much perfect. Really amazed by all the progress that's been made over the past week or so. Kudos to Hash/Intersect/etc etc.

The MAC address issue is because of the nvs.bin that was included in the #3 rom (it has a preset MAC in it). Looks like the other CM7 rom fixed this by NOT including the nvs.bin file and wrapping the module loader binary with a script that builds a new file if it doesn't exist and then runs the module loader.

I'll try and get this into the next full ROM update.
