Default To Moderators: Please separate Kindle sections!

Can we please *pretty please* get separate posting areas for all these stupid versions of this damn kindle.

I'm so frustrated looking for help to root this thing and finding all kinds of conflicting threads because the kindle naming conventions are pure garbage. I have the newest kindle fire HD which is the 3rd generation (11.3.1) and i'm pretty sure its called 7" Kindle Fire HD. But you have KFHD (which is what, gen 1?) And then you have Kindle Fire HD 2 which most people think is the newest one but is not.

I'm so damn confused and i'm sure more than 50% of the folks on here are. I guarantee half of the bricks floating around here are from the dumb ass naming conventions and confusion its causing.

so... can we please get separate sections for these kindles to help us all keep our sanity?


thanks!

Then you need to research or just ask. Going off a name only part of it. The firmware is what will dictate the exact device you are using and which mod is OK to use. The Kindle is a different animal from many other tablets.

Just ask around, you will get a good answer.

No one makes anyone start modding. This is a personal responsibility issue. It's up to the owner to make sure they know what they are using and ask if they don't know. This forum has some of the most decent and knowledgeable people helping out in it for countless hours. If you have a question then just ask.

The only Kindle that does not officially have it own area yet it the Kindle fire HD 7 (3rd gen) KFSOWI 11.x.x.x But there is only a root and adding Google Play for it right now so the basic thread that exists seems to be working at it for the moment. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2544736 I'm not a moderator but figured I could field you to the topic you're probably looking for.

Not just the HDX but also the 2nd version of the Kindle Fire HD 1.5ghz (2013) vs the 1st model 1.2ghz. (2012)

Except its still called the 3rd generation Kindle to everyone else or just the Kindle 2013 version.

We need a custom forum for this model because as of right now its not only confusing to some members, it's just what needs to be done.
