Tablet N7 vs KFHD

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.

I thought its a Kindle Fire (escpecially 8.9") topic not a Nexus 7 which i also have. I know how easy to do anything i want, but KFHD much prettier device. I used to have the "old" Kindle Fire that support cm10... so this is why I presume to ask, but you're guys right buy a nexus 7.

I didn't want to spend $400, and I've tried a 10" tablet before, just a bit too big for me :P
This one is just about perfect. Just needs fully working CM10 and it will be perfect for me

Does anyone know if kindle lending library, movies, etc. works with CM10?

I would test it myself but I am still waiting for mine to arrive.

Can someone help a dummy like me understand how this exploit works? Whats special about the 4kB of 0x00507c80 in the middle of the system partition? And what does the 3 at 4104 of the boot partition do? Once CWM is loaded, does that eliminate the need for modifying the system/boot partition, or does something in verygreens device tree/local_manifest take care of adding the necessary code for every build?

Thanks!

0x807c5000 is the address where our replacement bootloader is loaded.

Boot partition is used by amazon uboot to get various properties like serial number of device, wifi mac and what partition to boot from.
1 is normal boot, 3 - recovery, 2 - diagnostic kernel (don't boot it if you don't know what you are doing), 5 and 6 are boot from USB.

the need to load uboot address is never disappearing, but updater-script in the install zip takes care of that.
