    Post [HARD BRICKED?] Turns on, shows Kindle logo, then flashes blue screen.

    This happened to me too with an Apollo 3rd gen w/64 GB RAM, BL unlocked, w/ TWRP on Oct 2016 CM11. So pissed because in the middle of normal operation, the screen faded, rebooted and repeatedly showed the blue screen. Tried to reboot a couple of times but kept boot looping w/ blue screen...

    For those that are bootloader unlocked, have you ever noticed the advanced reboot option, reboot to recovery just hangs? I've noticed this is only a problem with CM11 and not any other ROM by ggow (e.g.. CM13)... Sent from my Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 using Tapatalk

    Many thanks to ggow for his continued effort with CM11 & CM13. With that said, I thought I'd help out by trying 0205 for the past 5 days. CM13 works great. The only reason I'm going back to CM11 is due to battery life isn't as good as CM11 with WiFi during sleep = always, and WiFi reconnect...

    Sorry for not being clear: Aptoide works fine. The modified App menu on the default fire tv launcher looks like your screenshot. However, the Amazon AppStore is *REALLY* broken after you allow Aptoide to upgrade the Amazon Appstore. I've since restored the Amazon AppStore from TiBU so no...

    Post Via aptoide - Watchever, Napster, Chrome uva. on Fire TV

    Aptoide updates the Appstore and replaces it with one from a phone. It's a bad idea if you actually use the Appstore because I've had this installed for 1 hour and I still can't find how to install the apps I own, as the library link just brings you back to the main apps window.

    Other than 8.9" root, the other 3 steps can be used for HDX 7. Ptiwee modifies the service.odex file in his script instead of just providing a binary like Cpasjuste. However, that comes at a high price as you need more software dependencies to unpack, modify and upload a apk as opposed to a...
