Just plug and play here. I did have to reboot with the Dongle in the OTG cable before it would recognize it. But it booted up working perfectly. The Fire goes to sleep and wakes up if I move the mouse or keyboard. Remote desktop works REALLY well with it.

tether gps
i was wondering if the kernel could be the problem with using the tether gps client app on my kindle? i use my galaxy s2 to create a hotspot then tether my kindle to it. in the past this has worked but know after installing the reloaded 1.2h rom it doesn't. i know the kernel is a work in progress and has been really great.

I've tested the wireless tethering for the phones that I currently have (about 4) and everything worked. However, it may be that there are tweaks which need to be made to wpa_supplicant to allow more phones to be tethered (and this was done in the previous ROMs, I believe).

Also, I know that on the Motorola RAZR, you need to select a "Droid RAZR" profile in Wifi Tether, before most tablet devices will be able to connect. You probably have a similar setting already setup, but this is a good item to check as well.

i can tether my kindle to my phone and it connects and i can surf the web but for some reason the tether gps client on my kindle isn't receiving data from the tether gps server on my phone. i can't discern if its the app itself or its something else. they updated the app awhile back to work on ics and it worked fine when i was on reloaded rom 1.2 but know i moved to 1.2h with kernel 3.0 #7.

edit: after flashing back to reloaded 1.2 with a different kernel i can i get it to work. hash if you are curious you can search the play store for droid 2 droid. the app is the same as tethergps but gives you more information. in that app, when i was on kernel 3.0 where my ip address should be (for my kindle that was givin from my phone) is a string of some kind with wlan0 at the end. i know thats not much help without using the app so you can see what im talking about

edit2: ok nvm i just reflashed the rom i was using and that worked so this long post is pointless. if a moderator sees this they can delete it.

The light sensor was so bad Amazon disabled it in the stock kernel.

Unless we can someday come across a fully generic driver like we have for the touch screen, it's unlikely that it will work at all, or any better than before Amazon disabled it of their own accord.

Dosnt matter about the benchmark becase this kernel sets the fire on fire for real !!!

Bigup for great work keep them coming Hash !

Yeah I'm getting antsy for 1.2 GHz, but especially for 1.3 GHz. I have ALWAYS overclocked and running stock speed for me is really slow by comparison.

My guess is that we'll see overclocked versions in the next update or two.

Will a USB adapter work for OTG?
Will an adapter work for OTG or do I need a cable? I got an adapter for 2 bucks off eBay and tried plugging in my external HDD--no go. I ran the USB Host Diagnostics tool and everything looks good (Hash's 4/17 ROM w/#7 kernel). I just hope I don't have to do a full reinstall.

P.S. Would it be possible to get a guide posted for this? That would be awesome.
