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.

download the bin, then run

unzip /path/to/update.bin
