Default Chipset in new kindle fire HD?

I got one of these for my wife for Christmas and I know last year it was using the OMAP 4470, this years model only kind of specs I can find state "a faster 1.5ghz dual-core". So what is it? Surely it can't be an OMAP, TI exited the market a year ago! It doesn't matter much I'm just curious.

Well, is it a Kindle Fire 2 or a Kindle Fire HD 7 or 8.9? Does it have a front facing camera? Go into about device and look here to see which Kindle firmware you're using http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=200529680 The reason I ask is this is the KF2 area and you stated new Kindle Fire Hd and so first need to get that straitened out.

OK, you have a Kindle Fire HD 7 2013 (KFSOWI) 11.x.x.x it will root using the files located here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2544736 It does have a dual core TI OMAP4 4470 HS 1.5 GHz chip set. At least that's what Amazon says although I have not dug into one personally yet. https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/fir...fications.html third one to the right.
