Stop posting garbage.....
<rant>
Plz people....out of 90 some odd posts, there are about 5-8 worth reading. Can we all grow up and stop posting garbage??? We dont need every XDA member dropping in to post "I agree with .......whatever". All you do is waste space, and make these forums impossible to find the actual content people are looking for. 60 posts for troll bait...really??? Cant we just let Hash and the other devs to their thing and follow along without wasting server space with worthless posts? Flame away.....I really dont care.....but PLZ, PLZ, PLEASE stop wasting time and space.

Yes, and complaining about those posts are another 40 posts to read
So... maybe just ignore posts with stupid questions and resp only to something constructive?

Quick Status update:

I completed the latest source code merge with TI's omapzoom and the kernel is now technically version 3.0.21 (as opposed to 3.0.8). During this merge I removed quite a bit of Amazon customization from the kernel sources and will continue to do so as needed, because it makes updates about a quadrillion times easier.

The bootup status really hasn't changed much: Kernel boots, init kicks off, the services startup and about the time we hit "surfaceflinger / bootanimation" the whole process stalls out.

A new change, is that ADB is now up and running and that's helping troubleshoot quite a bit. It means access to logcat, shell, etc. So far it looks like the halt is due to a 2.6 backlight driver and some framebuffer configuration issues. Hoping to make some progress on those soon.

Also, I've started the updated Android build under "ics-test" branches in the KFire-Android git for both device/amazon/otter and vendor/amazon/otter (https://github.com/KFire-Android). Here you can see what a "regular" ICS build for the Kindle Fire looks like. Almost all of the vendor files are removed (which came off the original device), and it has 3.0 kernel modules and board config. This includes removal of most of the legacy hacks that are used for OpenGL, old style Wifi config, etc.

I'll get you more info as it happens. But, you can trust that if nothing is being updated here or on the blog (http://blog.hash-of-codes.com/kindle-fire-ics/); it's not because I'm ignoring the KFire. I'm just not making much progress.

Currently Troubleshooting:
Display / Backlight Driver - It's causing surfaceflinger / bootanimation to stall out during the boot process.
Power Button Driver / Color Changing Leds - Old Driver needs to be updated

Future Changes Per Difficulty:
- Touchscreen Driver (Has been finicky but there is new untested driver source available)
- 127x Wifi Driver (Should work when we're ready to test, with normal expected troubleshooting)
- Sensor Driver Updates (Should work when we're ready to test, with normal expected troubleshooting)
- HW Acceleration Testing (If backlight and graphics timer issues are solved correctly, this should work, with normal expected troubleshooting)
- Audio Source / Driver Update (Need userspace ICS source update for AIC3110 codec to really do audio the "right" way, vs. janky legacy method we're using now)

Awesome hashcode!! Keep up the good work man!

About hardware accelerarion: What exactly do you mean by it? I think games (for example) are already accelerated on ICS, so maybe you mean "hardware decoding"?

Also if you do so, do you mean the same that can be found in stock (.MP4, Netflix), which is limited at best or do you mean the whole pack (most popular filetypes), like -say- some Chinese tablets already have (for that we'd need codecs of course)?
