But doesn't the 2 Generation kindle run Gingerbread? I thought only the HD had ICS.

Android>iOS... Android FTW!

Hey I just wanted to comment that no app from the second gen kindle fire works for me. They just force close. However for the HD I got setup running but it crashed at the end. So maybe it would be easier to port the HD rom.

The HD, none of the specs are the same. Thus, It is probably not possible unless we modify a lot of applications.

Hi everyone, looks like the kindle fire HD and the upcoming nook tablets HDs have a similarity between the TI OMAP processors.

On the kindle fire HD it has the TI OMAP 4460 and the nook tab HD's have the OMAP TI 4470, both dual layered.

Does anyone have the binary drivers for the kindle fire HD? Or if someone has a git repo on this device for kernel development? Kind of curious if the binary drivers are in the same family or if there is discrepancy between the drivers between those two processors. Looking to possibly port over what work done here to the upcoming Nook HDs and get my team up and going on kernel development. Also interested in the sound codec drivers.

What work we do can also be shared here with you guys also.

Will this return a rooted/hacked/modded KF2 to stock?

sounds feasible may be someone has already tried this option, I will search the web and see
