Hi guys, just some questions about the Kindle HDX 7".

1) I have read in some reviews that the Amazon Fire HDX has a custom, Amazon-centric OS which makes you buy things from Amazon and that you do not have access to free apps from Google play store.

Can the Kindle Fire HDX take a CM ROM and become a "normal" tablet without any links to Amazon?



2) Can the 4G version be used to make normal phonecalls and normal SMS messages?

Many thanks

I can answer part of that, we do not have the ability to flash custom ROMs on it as of yet because of the locked boot loader, but from what I know we now can at least root it, and install the Google play market on it plus custom launchers so we can kinda not have to deal with Amazon's interface. I don't know a way of making free calls off the sim or sms, I would just use the magic jacks app or something similar but that's just me.
