Yes, I have seen this from since the start of developing CM-11. There is nothing of use in there to kill the remaining bugs or that can help with CM-12

We are at the mercy of Amazon. I messaged them even explaining who I was and what I've been doing with their phones. I asked for help in the to provide libs or help with the a solution to the camera and future versions of android. Even asked if they unlocked the bootloader then I'm sure most of the remaining problems could be solved.

But I guess they don't care. The been looking at the bootloader on and off along with the tz and the [email protected] thing seems unlockable. Hope someone with more knowledge comes along and proves me wrong.

I'm still interested in getting later versions of android but it's proving extremely difficult with the current circumstances we are facing with this device.

I don't understand why Amazon can't just unlock the devices if they are not interested anymore :mad::rolleyes:

@Darth, can we move this thread to the General section?

The Fire Phone is listed as one of the devices owned by @Chainfire according to his signature yet we have had nothing from him regarding this phone specifically so maybe it really is unlockable. :eek:

Note to Others:
Trying to unlock the bootloader already cost me one Fire Phone so I doubt I will be doing anymore pioneering in this area :cowboy:
Any Unofficial unlock would likely come from this thread. https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-nexus/themes-apps/app-bootunlocker-nexus-devices-version-t1731993 with the likes of @osm0sis and others still tinkering occasionally
But just remember this Phone is very unforgiving if you mess with it's bootloader :eek:

I suspect the reason is if they give us the unlock codes they're afraid we'll reverse engineer the unlock codes for other current devices, I'm willing to bet they're all very similar. It still sucks, though, a Fire Phone running 7.1.1 would be sweet.
