This is just a public service announcement regarding the Amazon Fire Phone's potential hackability based on Amazon's history
Will it get root?
Most likely. Everything gets root eventually
Will it get GApps?
Amazon did one hell of a job preventing people from getting GApps on the Kindle Fire HDXs by squeezing down the partition sizes and adding functions in system apps to keep Google apps from functioning properly. So maybe yes, maybe no
Will it get a bootloader unlock?
Based on Amazon's not so good history of allowing the customization of devices
, this may
never get a bootloader unlock. They do a pretty good job at locking everything down, I must add.
So, in case you were too lazy to read the above, if you plan on bootloader unlocking this thing and installing the Google Play Store or CyanogenMod fresh out of the box, I would recommend
searching elsewhere. The HTC One M8, perhaps, which has slightly better specs anyways
