Question
Anyone dump the boot.img yet? A full Rom dump would be nice (not just the system.img), if anyone has dumped it.

I guess there is no need for dumping the rom.

You can download the software update here and gunzip it!

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...90620#download

You will end up with the whole system folder plus these files:

backup_userdata.zip
boot.img
cert_swap.sed
recovery.img
sed
u-boot.bin

I would love to give a hand to see if custom ROM can be uploaded to the Kindle Fire but I don't know what could be the next step.

I was also able to extract the ramdisk from the boot.img but not the kernel.

Again, not sure if this is something helpful or not. It would be nice if a real developer could at least give some hints on what we should try/explore.

Thanks!

i've already extracted everything we need and i've booted into a very ineffective clockwork but it's clockwork none the less

there are a few things that make developing on the fire difficult however:

1. no key combination to boot into recovery if we screw up as there's only one button

2. we need to find a way to navigate through the clockwork menu with one button

What command did you use to gunzip this? For some reason it is not working for me.
