It's actually a hardware issue. Otherwise Amazon would have an ota to fix it.

I don't see this being a hardware issue since all of the have it if you know what to look for.

I've noticed mine flickering a little bit, but it doesn't happen all that often. I never used it stock, so I just figured it was an issue with the Gapps ROM. Again, it doesn't happen often, so it doesn't bother me too bad, but just to make your mind at ease....you aren't the only one to notice this.

No, this is a different item. Like you, I turn off the auto-brightness too. I haven't nailed down when it happens, but it's just a quick bit of feint flickering for me, then back to normal. Kind of hard to explain I guess. I've noticed it a couple times a day since I got mine last week with pretty heavy usage.

My thoughts exactly. The more I read some of the forums, the more I regret my decision of getting the HDX on sale vs the Nexus 7....I was looking at the great specs and not thinking of more, but last night showed me the potential this thing has when I installed the AOSP ROM. Not perfect, but potential. Liking AOSP over the Gapps ROM despite not having music and video.
