The Fire is my first Android device and I have been following the XDA forums closely because this kind of hacking and tweaking is just WAY to cool.

Congrats on the CM7 boot. Can't wait to see more!

Probably not. I know that there is a working build though and that it has been said to be working great. I know there are still some hurdles but the guys are working hard

Great news.
But I think the biggest shocker is why do you have your wifi set to WEP?

Yes TWRP. I am not 100% sure what is holding up the release. Agrabren has TWRP working on the KF but says that it may be a week or 2 until it is ready for release, he is the only one that knows for sure still needs to be done. I think 1 problem is lack of an easy way to boot in to recovery. Either way, looks like we aren't far off.

I'd really love to stay and chat, but I'm actually really late for work

More on this when I get off from work and before I gotta leave for school

Congrats! Do you have a github repository somewhere that you've got your code committed that we can look at? I do CM7 for the Samsung phones (Galaxy S and Galaxy SII), and so I'm interested in putting Ice Cream Sandwich on the Fire but haven't got around to doing anything on my Kindle because I've been busy the ICS for the phones. Starting with what you've got would be a good start and then I can try to put ICS on it.

  3. Re: Above...can CM be unrooted after installed?

Basically, I just want to know what I'm LOSING by going to CM on the Kindle Fire.

Hope all kindle stuff and just pure Android.
