No - KF HD is a beautiful piece of hardware at a nice price, crippled by Amazons software. Where I live, almost all Amazon content is blocked anyway, so I won't lose anything. Amazon ebooks are basically the only content available to me, but that's just a matter of installing the Kindle app in CM.

What about KFHD 7" ? If CM10 will work for KFHD 8.9", will work for 7" too or not? Sorry my english, please.

I am eager to try working this over to the 7HD but it might be premature. Do you guys think this software will still work with the fire 2 and 7HD?

Just to clear this up.
I do not have Kindle Fire HD 7" and so I cannot try.
We've got a volunteer to try this at irc and bootloader unlock works the same way (as expected, but you need a different bootloader binary).
We were not able to get anything to show up on the screen after booting CM10, thought it appears the OS boots and behaves fine, backlight is on too.

Anyway, I'd much rather prefer people to buy Nexus 7, it costs the same as Kindle Fire HD 7, but is a much more open device with much more developer support.
If you need CM10 and further, get Nexus 7 and you'll be soo much more happier. You still can run kindle app on it to read your books if you so desire.

With this out of the way, let's not touch on the 7" device topic here anymore, it's for 8.9" development discussion only. Thank you for your understanding.

Hear, hear!

The N7 is an amazing deal, has incredible specs with pretty much everything included, AND it's been made easily unlockable by the distributor. To anyone who wants continued access to devices in the future, there's no reason to support closed, locked systems.

So I just want to voice my agreement. If you're in the market for a 7" tablet, N7 > Kindle Fire HD 7".

Pass it on.

I would have gotten the N7 but I wanted a larger screen.
