Kindle Model/Version identification problem
Good evening everyone,
I have recently bought (and bricked) a Kindle Fire HD from Amazon with the statement “Previous Generation” in the title.
Now, after spending a week reading this forum with guides, tutorials and referenced articles I have concluded that there is a “huge mess” out there in identifying and naming each Kindle version.
As far as I can tell my Kindle should be a 2nd Generation of the HD series, also called “2012 Version” in some threads but although an extensive reading I could not figure out if there is a way to clearly identify a model from its hardware serial number / features.
The next logical question would be “Which guide/tutorial should I follow in order to Root and customize my Kindle thus transforming it in a full-featured Android tablet?”
If I suppose that my model is correctly identified by the definition above, than I should follow this guide (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2128848
) although there is no mention about generation in the title.
I would be glad If anyone with a bit of “field experience” might help me clarifying this thoughts and avoiding bricking another device.
Thank you in advance for your time, your courtesy, and the great job you provide maintaining this board.
