[Q] Issues with Kindle Fire - Please Help!
Hello everyone! I'm not exactly new to rooting, roms, or XDA, but I am a new member, so as such, the forums system forced me to post here...
What I am having trouble with:
For kindle fire.
I flashed this rom today to my 1st gen kindle fire. (I used KFU 0.9.9 a few days ago to get root, and everything's good there.)
I'm using TWRP 22.214.171.124 and the ROM mentioned above. After flashing, I tried to connect to my home wifi. But the tablet said "Could not connect". So I thought, "well I'll try setting my router to 'insecure' and see if it works." and it worked fine. Then I tried switching the router back to secure. Nope. Rebooting the kindle? Nope. Wiping and re-flashing? Nope. Clearing Dalvik and Cache? Nope.
So I played around with everything else that ROM had for a little while and couldn't find any other problems...
But not having secure wifi was a dealbreaker for me. I'm still upset, as I very much like KitKat, and that ROM in general...
So, instead of sitting there with a [unusable - to me at least] device, I decided to flash the previous version of the ROM. That would be CM10.1/SGT7
For the Fire, by the same author.
Unfortunately, this ROM also has some issues, although I have mostly been able to ignore them so far (they are not as destructive as the wifi issue). Those issues would be: 1) For whatever reason the microphone no longer works, and 2) Trebuchet force closes from time to time.
Okay, so you may be thinking, well the KF doesn't have a mic. Yes, I know. I'm using an ifrogz headset w/inline mic. How do I know that headset works? I was able to use it with google voice search on the rooted stock ROM, as well as a free voice recording app. I happen to be slightly paranoid though, and tested the headset in a android phone I have. I was able to successfully make recordings there.
So, I tried a favorite app of mine called Soundabout
, which allows me to force the system to use the speaker or headset, the bluetooth (if equipped), etc.
Allow me to describe what happens when I try to record using the built in voice recorder app: kkkkssssshhhhhhhhhhhhh.....
(Something like a very noisy PC fan.)
This sound was generated regardless of the headset being plugged in or not.
I forgot to test this recording issue on the CM 11 ROM, and I don't have time (or patience) to do that tonight
So, please, please help!
I apologize for having such a lengthy post, but I've read complaints of not "describ[ing] in detail your problem" so I figured I would err on the sive of being too descriptive
