Hi,

Here is CM-11 (Android 4.4.4) for the kindle fire hdx 7" (THOR). You need a rooted hdx 7" (Thor) device with a firmware < 3.2.4 (3.2.3.2 ideally) and a signed recovery.

Todo
  • Bluetooth not working
  • Wifi won't correctly load when disabled at boot, a reboot is required
  • Minimal headphone volume too loud -> fixed
  • Incorrect color format in some scenario's ? (YouTube) -> fixed

Changelogs/Downloads

    • Updated to amazon 4.5.3 binaries
    • Fully disable radio for now (thanks Andy-Voigt)

    • CM sources updated to 20150108

I'm sure the community here respects all of the work that you do. My post in the other thread was not intended to "get you in trouble". There are a set of rules that every user has to follow, regardless of their contributions to the community. That being said, when I was a newer member, I accidentally broke the rules a couple of times (nothing major) and didn't want the same to happen to someone else. (I never contacted @Divine_Madcat about your other thread, in case you were thinking I did.)

Yep i was tinking to that... so I'm also sorry. The thing is i spent a lot, lot of time on this port, and Divine_Madcat didn't even give me the time to update the first thread with the needed files/informations and ignore my pm which was an offense to me. Well i have to complies to the rules too but was a little chocked on how the thread got mad. Well, let's hope it won't be the same here. So that said i have no problem with you !

While i am sorry you are upset, it was not a slight at you at all. While i do try to keep an eye on XDA while at work, my job does come first and foremost, and i was unable to handle anything here yesterday (what can i say, 12 hour work days suck). As it was, i have literally nothing against you; to be frank, the report on the thread was the first i had even seen.
From my perspective, we had a placeholder thread, which is not allowed, so it was closed. I fully intended to reopen it, but gave my reasons above...

Anyway, i do wish you luck, and i really dont have any ill will to you...

Do we have unlocked bootloader or a root exploit for amazon firmware 4.5.2 soon? And do you have plan to release another for Apollo?

Thanks

Nobody knows. But there are a few people working on "unlocks" (at least booting an unsigned kernel). Maybe also jcase releases his unlock (which I doubt because of legal issues).

There are a few Users which do have an unlocked Bootloader, this Rom is only for these Users, as stated in the first Post.

I decided to make the rom available in case i loose interest in this device (or if i ever die soon). This way when (if) a root exploit is available then you'll be ready to use it.
