[Q] Rooted KFHD 7" rename w/o amazon account?

Hi there!
I have a simple question: How can I rename my kindle(the "My Kindle" in the upper left side of the screen)?
The problem is that my kindle is blacklisted and cannot be registered with a amazon account. That is not a problem for me, because I do not wish to buy any amazon content.

P.S.: I have a rooted KFHD and a fair experience with android&linux

Sorry.. I'm not familiar with the circumstances of a blacklisted device. Short of a factory reset or using the Kindle Fire First Aide to reset the device to the initial setup where you create an account and enter your name, I have no other advice.

Good Luck!

You know, you could always install Omega Statusbar which would change the look thus removing your name. (Visually, at least)
