Default [Q] BEGINNER: How to Convert Kindle to Android

Hi all

I'm sure this has been posted may times but the amount of posts on here is confusing so just need directing to the right place.

I have the Kindle Fire HD running 7.4.8. I bought it for my wife's birthday last year but did not realise how limited it is.. If I could convert it to an android operating system it would be wonderful.

Please can someone guide me to the correct upto date link showing me clear instructions (or video) how to do this for the 7.4.8. I've never done something like this before so hoping for a beginners level guide..

Your help is much appreciated.

Regards,

David.
