Hi! Hope everybody is having a nice Thanksgiving (slowly transitioning to Black Friday).

I brought a piece of great news, Kindle Fire HD 8.9" (and HD 7", but I don't have a device to test) locked bootloader bug has been fixed.
All hail to sloppy programmers (as if there were any other kinds, right?)



Thanks to: fattire for noticing a bit of unverified user input, Hashcode for doing some prototype testing on other Kindle devices before we got our hands on actual Kindle HD and a bit of source code.

I bought this bad boy (8.9) one week ago. Rooted, added GApps with Nova and was crossing my fingers on this happening.

Great news indeed!

Do you have something I can test in the KindleFire 2nd Gen?
