It seems to me that the rom of Kindle Fire has never been ported to any other device!
But this rom is very unstable. For me it was more a challenge to get something booted on the Nexus S. That is why this rom is only for porters / developers but not for daily use.

If you want to help please MP :)

Do a BACKUP of your current Rom before try this. USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK !!

WORKING

  • Boot !
  • Touchscreen
  • RIL (You can just send SMS, no receive or phone/data)
  • Wifi (It detect Wifi, but acting weird...)
  • Sensors
  • Rotate
  • Amazon apps
  • ADB (logcat, push...)

NOT WORKING

  • Camera (there is no camera app and camera from CM does not work
  • Bluetooth (not present in settings)
  • SDCard
  • Sound
  • Some option in settings
  • Call
  • Others things
  • Reboot because of libaudioflinger


INSTALLATION

  • Download the ROM
  • Reboot to recovery
  • Do nandroid backup
  • Wipe ALL
  • Install the ZIP
  • Enjoy !!!
