WARNING: This is ONLY for the Kindle Fire 1st Edition when setup as "OTTERX". Not to be used by ANY other Kindle Fire.
For more information on the OtterX project: go here

CyanogendMod 12.0 based on Android Lollipop 5.0
STATUS: ALPHA

REQUIREMENT: TWRP 2.7.1 or newer

BEFORE FLASHING ANDROID 5.0 the first time: PERFORM A WIPE + ADVANCED->FORMAT SYSTEM (in TWRP).

STEP 1: Download SELF-COMPILED BUILD OF CM12.0 (some open review items are applied to this build):
https://goo.im/devs/Hashcode/otterx/cm12/

STEP 2: Download Android Lollipop-based GApps (by @dhacker29):
http://devhost.xda-developers.com/jzr

STEP 3: Reboot to recovery, wipe data and flash both .zip files (ROM first, then gapps).

STEP 4: Reboot again, and *WAIT FOR 8 - 10 MINUTES* while Android L is setup on your device.

CHANGES:
  • [11/30] Alpha build made public

CURRENT KNOWN ISSUES:
  • Initial setup can be *very* slow. *BE PATIENT.*
  • Google Play Movies needs DRM fixes, it won't work.
  • Current rotation settings starts the device in "Landscape", this may change
  • Some of the transparency settings are disabled due to low RAM. Needs work.
  • High battery drain while idle. 12%+ a day with wifi enabled.

WHAT *SHOULD* BE WORKING:
  • Audio
  • Wifi
  • Hardware accelerated graphics
  • Hardware accelerated codecs for audio/video

I notice many other devs are building odex type ROMs which save quite a few minutes on the initial boot.

My natural reaction is that the initial wait is worth not having odex type files which hamper user customization.

Just thinking outloud.

Also:

Right now some transparency settings are turned off due to low ram. Going to look into re-enabling.

Battery drain is high atm. 12%+ a day sitting idle.
