This flash .zip file contains the Amazon OS 8.4.3 update + root/Superuser.apk and should have OTAs disabled. You can use this to revert back to the Amazon OS should you need to for any reason.

INSTALLATION (TO REVERT TO AMAZON OS):
  • Place flash .zip file onto your SD card
  • Reboot into recovery
  • Wipe system
  • Use "INSTALL" and find the .zip file (NOTE: CM10.1 may create a "0" directory under /data/media so you may need to navigation up to /data/media and back down to find .zip)
  • Make sure to WIPE CACHE if you're currently on stock (and do a full FACTORY RESET for wiping data/cache if you're on CM10.1 going to this).
  • Reboot
  • Go back through the stock Amazon setup process

Works great - but not without a 'heart attack moment' first time around.

I pushed the kfhd8-amazon...zip to the /sdcard/download folder from a Windows box. It was put into /sdcard/0/download.

Once in TWRP, I naviguessed to the /download folder to install the old software - and the folder was blank (apparently TWRP defaulted to the /sdcard/download folder). Ok...Hashcode warned us about the duplicate folders in JellyBean, so I backed out of 'install' and used to file manager to find the kfhd8-ama...zip in the /sdcard/0/download folder. It was an easy click to select it to copy, then navigate to the 'other' download folder, then press paste. FAILED I tried again and that copy failed as well.

Navigating back to the 'install' menu refreshed the screen and the update software zip was magically there. Maybe the failed copy didn't really fail? Maybe the initial read of the /download folder failed and needed to be refreshed? Dunno
.

But the flash worked perfectly. And it's apparently resilient enough to catch newb errors - I was so happy that the software appeared that I forgot to wipe the system again after installation. Pressing reboot to the system resulted in an attempted boot and a return to TWRP where I could give the system a good wipe. The next boot was normal.

Whew.

Does TWRP backup of CM10 work as other normal phones or we also need to take care of the "stack" file? because I saw these lines in the update-script. Will a backup/restore of CM10 overwrite this?

---------
run_program("/sbin/sh", "-c", "rm -f /tmp/stack; for i in $(seq 1024) ; do echo -ne '\\x00\\x50\\x7c\\x80' >>/tmp/stack ; done");
run_program("/sbin/dd", "if=/tmp/stack", "of=/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/system", "bs=6519488", "seek=1", "conv=notrunc");
---------

I just flashed back to this until the CM built has working sound. I'm not sure if this is already known, but if you flash a ICS based gapps package on top of this you have all the gapps =D

Seriously? And everything works? I already have everything installed but if this is true that would make going back and forth between cm and Amazon really easy

Only had about 30 minutes to play with it before going to bed. But everything that i tested worked fine. Google play installs apps fine, youtube works as expected, installed a couple other apps and everything works as it should.
