Default [Q] Black wallpaper on Kindle Fire

Hi every one,

first, sorry for my english. I'm french.

I root my Kindle fire HD with this tuto: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2069117
Then, I intall Playstore with this tuto: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2069329
Finally, I install Go launcher HD with this tuto: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2069668

But I have only black screen and no wallpaper.
I know it's a know issue, and I try to apply this fix: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=75
But when I try to launch the RunMe.bat and choose the first choice, it say me:

"Your system partition is too low on disk space to complete the procedure, please delete your alternate launchers, widget picker, and livre wallpaper chooser if installed and try again".

I do that, I uninstall go launcher Ex and HD and every thing from the system/app folder, but it say me the same thing everytime. I really don't know How I can apply the fix... :/

My kindle Fire HD is on version : 7.4.8

Thanks a lot for your help!

This is a problem that happens when the system partition doesn't have enough space to safely install the fix, anything you added to the system folder should be uninstalled temporarily. If it was not for thisnpritective measure you would have had the device go into a boot loop. If you can verify that your device does have enough free space on the system partition(around 30-35 mb if I remember correctly) then technically you can modify the script to disable the failsafe pretty easily. Run "df /system" from a adb shell or terminal to find out how much so pace the system partition has free. Personally I recommend just flashing a new ROM over the amazon os because they are so much better but if you want to stick with amazon os then I will try to help you out with the wallpaper fix.

You have rebooted the device right? If it still doesn't work undo the fix and redo it again, also clearing the dalvik cache can sometimes help.

Can you be more specific? Did the script fail or you mean it applied it again but didn't work again?

The scripts finish and say me it finished successfully, and the wallpaper must now work. And the Kindle reboot automatically.
It say me to press key to finish, and the script close.
So I think, it's the normal process with the fix.

I try twice, but same result. The script say me it's good, but no wallpaper, just a black screen.

Hmm wonder if there were any errors along the way I don't have failsafes in place for. If you could copy and paste the output into a post in code brackets I could tell if there was a issue or just use the debugger batch file. Read the instructions for it though or you will think it's broken. You could always just downgrade the kindle is with kffa or flash another ROM to fix the problem.

Press any key to continue . . .
If there is no solution, I'll install a custom ROM I think. Simplest I think^^
But a question about that, with another ROM, can I'll still be able to use the Amazon market, read my books buy on, and everything like the Amazon ROM?
If It's ok with that, I think this is the solution.
Is there a really safe processus for? And good custom ROM with this device?

Sorry for all my stupid questions, I'm a really noob with root, etc...

Ah I see why the fix isn't working, its something to do with when it when it retrieved the framework-res.apk, or something of that nature because the file couldn't be found when it attempted to decompile.

To answer your questions about a custom ROM, I prefer stock cm personally, latest version is cm 11. I don't know too much about what's possible with the amazon market on the non amazon is. I think you can still read books, but forget about amazon prime movies and such. I'll check what the amazon app can do in a sec and edit the post. I personally son,t own any books on amazon market so I can't personally test if I can read them, I mainly read manga on my kindle with the pocket manga app. The process to install a custom ROM is safe if you follow the instructions and check things like the md5sum of the bootloader ahead of time and such, but it is possible to hard brick this device. Main point, you probably wouldn't hard brick the device, as long as you check the bootloader's md5sum before flashing it the worst you can do is soft brick it and that's fixable with a fastboot cable. The process is fairly easy and automated if you use the fire flash app.

Edit: OK so I think you can use the amazon app, I can neither confirm nor deny because my amazon kindle app is crashing at launch. I think it works on cm 11 though, I'm still on cm 10.1 because of I'm still having to figure out a way to keep my tablet ui when going to cm 11. Someone might post if they can use it or not because I am unsure. You can always flash back to amazon os, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
