OFFICIAL CyanogenMod 12.1 for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9"

*** USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! WHILE I TRY MY BEST TO PROVIDE WORKING KERNELS/ROMS, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF THIS SOFTWARE OR ANYTHING I'VE WORKED ON SUDDENLY FRIES YOUR DEVICE. ***


BEFORE YOU FLASH THIS, PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A 2ND-BOOTLOADER INSTALLED FROM HERE:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2128175


CHECK KNOWN ISSUES BEFORE FLASHING. PROBABLY NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR DAILY USE.

Official nightly builds can be found here:
http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=jem

Download Google Apps for Android 5.1:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=25361
(Choose newest *-5.1-* file)

NOTES:
  • Older versions of TWRP will show a "mount failed error". This is safe to ignore. TWRP 2.8.7.0 and on is recommended for cm-12.1 / android-5.1.
  • First boot after a clean wipe will take a LONG time. Be patient.

KNOWN ISSUES:
Use XDA Bug Reporter

SCREEN SHOTS:
Use XDA Screenshots

Holy smokes! Was hoping this would be out soon after seeing it released for the 7 inch! Thank
You hashcode for all your hours and hard work that allows us to have a better experience with the kindle! This is awesome and can't wait to try!

Mike

update: did wipe, installed cm12 clean with no errors, installed gapps clean with no errors! this maybe normal but progress bar in TWRP did not move after "swipe to install" until file 3 of 3 gapps was installing and it was almost complete (had my heart beating a little faster than normal) : ) but then all was good! first boot took about 6 to 7 minutes i would say (meant to time it but forgot) have went through all settings and all seems good, wireless good, all gapps seem good, not a single bug/glitch/crash SO FAR! thanks a million Hashcode! continuing to test out everything right now but all seems good!

OK I noticed one major thing....I lost root. Why did that happen? I did not lose root after I flashed cm11. Is this because its alpha unofficial release? Thanks in advance for any input!

Pretty dang good for a first build. I think a new TWRP and f2fs is going to bring the life back to this device. Its been pretty laggy ever sense the Kit Kat builds. I don't remember Jelly Bean being this slow. Maybe I'm just used to faster devices now, but I've always adored my Amazon Jem. Only thing I've seen thus far is Chrome Browser crashes after a minute or two, a bit laggy overall, a battery whore, and Google Launcher flat out doesn't work. Could be the gapps package though. Awesome work so far my friend, real treat. Thanks Hash'

Just flash a SuperSU zip and root is back. I think it's a CM issue because I lost root on other CM12 devices as well recently.

There was two download tabs in the gapps link. Top one was junk as you described, I grabbed that one first also. But the bottom download tab was correct gapps for LP with matching md5.

Flash a zip as in with adb install or just doing regular apk install will work? Thanks

I installed cm12 and gapps clean with no errors, no problems so far. No root when tried to install apps with root access...the solution was easy: in Configuration, Developer Options, Root Access tab.

Thanks Hashcode!

Try using PA GAPPS located at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=56832776. Both Chrome Browser and Google Now Launcher work. I flashed the Full Modular package (clean flash with the ROM).
@Hashcode another great job - can't thank you enough.
