I'm sure the community here respects all of the work that you do. My post in the other thread was not intended to "get you in trouble". There are a set of rules that every user has to follow, regardless of their contributions to the community. That being said, when I was a newer member, I accidentally broke the rules a couple of times (nothing major) and didn't want the same to happen to someone else. (I never contacted @Divine_Madcat about your other thread, in case you were thinking I did.)

Yep i was tinking to that... so I'm also sorry. The thing is i spent a lot, lot of time on this port, and Divine_Madcat didn't even give me the time to update the first thread with the needed files/informations and ignore my pm which was an offense to me. Well i have to complies to the rules too but was a little chocked on how the thread got mad. Well, let's hope it won't be the same here. So that said i have no problem with you !

While i am sorry you are upset, it was not a slight at you at all. While i do try to keep an eye on XDA while at work, my job does come first and foremost, and i was unable to handle anything here yesterday (what can i say, 12 hour work days suck). As it was, i have literally nothing against you; to be frank, the report on the thread was the first i had even seen.
From my perspective, we had a placeholder thread, which is not allowed, so it was closed. I fully intended to reopen it, but gave my reasons above...

Anyway, i do wish you luck, and i really dont have any ill will to you...

Do we have unlocked bootloader or a root exploit for amazon firmware 4.5.2 soon? And do you have plan to release another for Apollo?

Thanks

Nobody knows. But there are a few people working on "unlocks" (at least booting an unsigned kernel). Maybe also jcase releases his unlock (which I doubt because of legal issues).

Hi!

I have rooted Kindle Thor. How do I install this nice piece of software?
Like the Nexus rom? Currently I am on 3.2.7...

Thanks

I decided to make the rom available in case i loose interest in this device (or if i ever die soon). This way when (if) a root exploit is available then you'll be ready to use it.

Ok... So if there IS a possibility to unlock the actual fireos, please give some hints, instead of publishings Roms that one or two users can install, the rest is completely helpless...

Sharing hundreds of hours of work is helpless/useless for you ?

You know what ? I actually spent the whole day on porting cm-10 to current exploitable kernel for YOU :/

Everybody chill , @openWeb74, i see your point @Cpasjuste , first let me thank you for all your work, I'm pretty sure its a great Rom!
What openweb said was that maybe we should concentrate our efforts in unlocking the bootloader so even greater support can come.
Unfortunately we, the rest of us common mortals (with locked bootloaders) cannot use it.
As you said, this would work if somebody would release the bootloader-unlock , so lets play the waiting game...

The thing is I'm a common mortal like you :/ Like its said on first post, unfortunately, I do not have the tools nor the knowledge to reproduce the unlock, so I share what I can.

I really have to say sorry, if you dont know how to reproduce the hack... Mea culpa. It sounded like the hack is known, but cant be made public because of copyright issues or something like that... Then we have to wait. Nothing is secure when the right person gets a hdx... I have to say, that my actual hdx was rooted with towelroot, even easier than the nexus (less button combinations ;)) so i didnt expect amazon to be such a **** with newer firmwares.

I may eventually move to another tablet as I'm loosing interest in this device (because cm is working fine [emoji14]). Would someone be interested to get my device (not for free :))?
