I wanted to say how much I appreciate you working on this Hashcode. I do not know you but what I do know is that I have the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 and it is a marvelous device that needs a full blown Android OS on it. I have 2- 7" tablets a 10" and this 8.9" Fire and I like the Fires size the best. Anyway looking forward to any progression of this project and to show my appreciation I just sent a little something your way. As time goes on and things progress I will send some more. Thanks
everything went fine. the twrp installed. i used it to create a backup then flashed cm10. after the flash i got nothing but the orange logo so i restored the system img from onemeila then reinstalled twrp from scratch and restored my back up lol
no idea why cm10 doesn't boot on my device.
I had the same issue, what I did was put the back up image I made back on, whole works. Then did ALL the steps over again including freedom, now I'm back to a working CM10.1. I had no way of pulling any logs off the system to see what was going on to figure out the issue itself though.
PLEASE BE SURE TO WIPE SYSTEM & DATA/CACHE (FACTORY RESET) WHEN COMING FROM AMAZON STOCK SOFTWARE.
(It's the "Wipe" button and then "System" and then "Factory Reset" button in TWRP -- this does NOT clear your sdcard space)
Be aware that the "sdcard" space has changed slightly from ICS to JB4.2. You will find your stock amazon OS files in /data/media/ or "sdcard" on the Stock OS. But CM10.1 will create a sub directory "/data/media/0" and call that "sdcard". And in TWRP it will also use "data/media/0" as "sdcard". This has to do with multi-user settings. So when placing files on the "sdcard" be sure to check both locations before wondering why that file is missing.
[02/01] First release
CURRENT KNOWN ISSUES:
AUDIO DOES NOT WORK. I'm still troubleshooting and working on a custom audio HAL (if needed)
I need to tweak the build.prop settings so that more apps are compatible.
Camera crashes at the moment
Bluetooth function turns on, but is largely untested.
Haven't touched HDMI yet
I don't have an LTE version so this is untested. Tho much of the RIL files are in place as well as APNs.

Then you can setup the Kindle Fire Android projects by doing the following: (This manifest allows for building Kindle Fire 1st and 2nd gen as well)
# Use main repo for CyanogenMod 10.1
repo init -u https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android -b cm-10.1
# Then add the local_manifest.xml for the Kindle Fire
curl -L -o .repo/local_manifest.xml -O -L https://raw.github.com/KFire-Android/android_local_manifest/cm-10.1/local_manifest.xml
. build/envsetup.sh && brunch jem
I am setting up the android kitchen. Lot's and lots of downloading. Anyway, is it required to download android's Master branch then the Cyanogen Mod or can you just download the Cyanogen Mod.
