Greetings all...

You may be aware that verygreen is working on CM10 development for the 8.9" Kindle Fire HD. I am also working on getting this working on the Kindle Fire HD 7".

What works:

-Almost nothing so far. I can get past the bootloader and CWM will run (Thanks, verygreen!), but the CM10 ROM still needs to be developed further. I can flash it, and it appears to complete, but nothing comes up on the screen.

Trust me, this will be a slow process, but it IS BEING WORKED ON!

I will post any progress that I make.

::UPDATES::

[12/4] I now have screen working.
[12/5] Boots fully, but no touchscreen and the resolution appears to be wrong. (see image below.)



[12/7] Touchscreen now works, but is off by 90 degrees.

[12/8] Basic functionality appears to be working now.
Wifi works, and screen and softkeys are all working now too.

Check out the video:



[12/10] 210 seems to be the magic DPI number for this device. Thanks to all of you who suggested that.

[12/18] Link to instructions on how to install revrom_alpha1:

Stay tuned...

As green has noted, the nexus 7 is a far superior deal, better hardware for the $, and is inherently unlockable by the manufacturer.

(Just wanted to note that in this thread for anyone considering a 7" tablet purchase. Go with open systems. The fire hd boot loader is now unlockable, but the next hardware may not be so easy.)

I agree, the Nexus 7 is a better deal right now....

But once CM10 is running on the KFHD7, I bet it'll give the N7 a run for it's money. Plus, you know there are going to be a million people (exaggerated) who want to load up their KFHD7 with CM10, so someone has to make it happen.

Oh, and just so everyone knows.... I have a Nexus 7 too.

Do you use Hashcode's Safetrap tool?

As i known, CWM can't support 7'HD Kindle Fire now.

No.

Now that we have the ability to unlock the bootloader, Safestrap becomes unnecessary.

Yeah don't get me wrong... I'm all for developing alternate oses for formerly locked devices, if only to demonstrate how futile and immoral (for lack of a better word-- dickish is another) it is to try to lock people out of their own devices. . but why buy them to begin with if there are better options?

Because people like having a choice. From everything I have seen and read, the physical quality of a nexus 7 left a lot to be desired. I like the speakers and screen on the kindle hd better. I am tied up to Amazon ecosystem. So many reasons. It's a sad world when people only want you to buy one thing. Competition is good for everyone. The original kindle fire is the entire reason the Nexus 7 came to be at that price.
