Yup ! Full aosp 4.2.2 port for the thor based on nexus 7 2012 image (kindle fire hdx 7") is coming very, very soon ! :D

I just booted a few minutes ago (after a lot of work) ! Rendering is working/fixed, touchscreen is working/fixed, sound working/fixed, wifi working/fixed. After registration (which worked) i tested playstore, gmail and some settings menu which are all working.

It's a good news for me, and i guess for you too. The rom should be ready for tomorow i guess/hope (even if there's still some bugs, which will be the case) is ready for download.

Installation :
  • Install safestrap
  • Create rom slot
  • Go to recovery
  • Wipe data, cache, dalvik cache
  • Flash aosp-4.2.2-thor-*.zip

Download :

Not working yet :
  • MediaPlayer (youtube, musics, games)
  • Crash on screen wake up (ui restart)
  • Headphones out not working

Note :
  • Help to fix mediaplayer and other bugs is welcome as time is missing
  • Rom used for the port : Grouper-JDQ39_4.2.2-Deodex_Rooted-02-14-13-teshxx
  • Playing with /system/lib and /system/bin between stock and grouper rom should be enough
  • No need to ask permission to use/repack do anything with the rom just go for it

Thanks:
  • To Hashcode for safestrap !

Great work! Whenever you're ready to post, I can probably help debug the ROM a bit.

Thanks ! I have to say thanks to safestrap (you) as overriding the init.rc script is required (well and for all other things it does).
Unfortunately it's 03:52 of the night here so i'm not sure i'll have the courage to
package a rom and upload but i'll do it tomorow for sure even in the current state.

I totally understand. Take your time (and get some sleep!) Was offering support so you didn't feel like you had the entire responsibility of the KFireHDX universe on your shoulders :)

Great work. I have been waiting patiently for HDX 8.9 roms and safestrap. But all the developers are doing a great job. Keep it up guys.

Hi ! Good news, ROM is packed ! I upload it asap ( should take a few hours). No changes since yesterday, all seems working except something with media player I think which prevent music's, hardware video player, and most games to work (hashcode and other help of course more than welcome as I may not have a lot of free time until next week end).

The main directions was : edit stock system/etc/rootfs/init.rc for grouper frameworks and remove calls to main2 services (amazon), replace app, fonts, framework and media stock system folders by grouper ones, replace a few stock system/bin/* and system/lib by grouper ones (more details soon).

Also note that data partition can (and must) be wiped so more room on nand !

I already knew it was wishful thinking at this early state of the rom dev but Amazon stuff such as kindle and mp3 player doesn't work, at least not in mine. Amazon Mobile for Tablet does work though. Just wanted to put it out there so we don't have a gazillion people posting about it. ;) I can do w/o games and video for now but would really like Kindle to work. I am really glad I don't have to deal w/ the auto hiding home and back buttons now from the stock fireOS, that was really annoying. Thanks Cpasjuste for putting this together!

Yes it's due to the mediaplayer bug. I'm not sure if it will be easly fixable or fixable at all yet !

So first off, many thanks to cpasjuste! This is absolutely fantastic! On the media thing, I just thought it might be good to mention to you and anyone interested that the soundcloud app works pretty well, with the exception of some minor freezing.

Just by looking at the error it looks like it can't find OMX.qcom.video.decoder.avc can you confirm it's present? Or its missing an include or header file maybe GraphicBuffer.h

No it's there. The problem is probably due to the mixed surfaceflinger and/or audio binaries/libraries, which may be very difficult to fix :x
It would probably better to work from aosp sources instead to debug around but this would require a huge amount of time which i don't have !

Bummer. I would lean more towards surfaceflinger since it seems more related to the error. Hope we can get some extra eyes on this. Would be awesome to have asop on kindle hdx. Thanks for hard work.

    Thanks S_transform, this is interesting. I'll take a deeper look soon !

    I am kind of leaning towards setting up a cm10.1 build from source and then overlaying any binaries that would be needed.

    I can probably set the gits up sometime this week @ www.github.com/KFire-Android

    Goog news !

    I did fix some major bugs :

    - MediaPlayer (youtube, musics, games) -> FIXED !
    - Crash on screen wake up (ui restart) -> FIXED !

    There is still some problems with games (subway surfer), no audio now but it's not crashing anymore. There's also a new bug added, the volume up/down notification is not showing anymore but it does work.

    i'll upload the rom in a few hours.

    EDIT: in fact there's still some random crash on games. But youtube and hardware mediaplayer do work.

    Great work! Whenever you're ready to post, I can probably help debug the ROM a bit.

    Since the HDX7 is similar to the Nexus 7 2013, I would recommend using that as a base because they both use QCOM and that may fix some issues.
