Is it still possible to download the latest version of this ROM?
The download link directs to something newer than mentioned in the changelog. And this newer ROM does not install, giving some name mismatch error...
Both download links show
20130117-1903 the last build in the changelog

Rom file name?
Twrp version?
Bootloader version?

I've installed CM11.0/KK 4.4.4 ROM (also by twa_priv) before (OtterX version) but found it a bit sluggish. I'd like to try this one but I'd like to know what I have to change to be able to use this?

- Switch from otterx bootloader to fff
- How do I have to setup the partition layout now (I've switched from Amazon to OtterX (data = F2FS) before)?

I know this thread is really old but I only want a (rather) fast ROM with good battery life on this old device. I don't need the latest bells and whistles (like in CM 11 / 12)...

You need original amazon partitions for this Rom.

Hi again ;).

Yes, the build number is OK - 20130117-1903, my mistake.

Rom file name: cm-10-20130117-1903-otter-sgt7.zip
TWRP version: 2.6.3.1
Bootloader version: not sure how to check it... is it the v1.4a that is displayed in the top right corner?

The error is:
assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "blaze" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "blaze"
E:Error executing updated binary in zip /sdcard/cm-10-20130117-1903-otter-sgt7.zip

Forum search suggests it might be wrong TWRP version. Should I update to the latest TWRP or downgrade to 2.2.x?

there are 3 different codenames used to ID the Kindle Fire 1 Recoveries : Blaze, Otter and OtterX
there isn't really any difference between Blaze and Otter, except the codename
some roms required blaze others otter
looks like you have Otter and the Rom requires Blaze
just need the install a Blaze, any should be fine 2.2.2.1 or higher

You mean the "blaze" image of TWRP, right?
But when I search TWRP Manager for "blaze", it says the matching device is "Samsung Galaxy S Blaze".
Will this work?

Thanks!
Sorry, I haven't found this thread myself and I was looking on the twrp webpage.

I tried zip-twrp-2.8.1.1.otter.blaze.zip with no success (the same error), but zip-otter-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.sd.zip did the job.

It was worth trying - this CM10 rom is blazing fast compared to the CM11 that I used before.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Optional: Disguise your Kindle Fire as a Galaxy Nexus to see more apps on the Play Store:

    This flashable zip (Alternate download) will modify and set the following build properties as follows:
    ro.product.model=Galaxy Nexus
    ro.product.brand=google
    ro.build.description=takju-user 4.1 JRN84D 392829 release-keys
    ro.build.fingerprint=google/takju/maguro:4.1/JRN84D/392829:user/release-keys

    You might need to clear the Play Store data to see an effect: Settings -> Apps -> Click on Google Play Store -> Click on Clear Data.
    I tested it and XDA Premium HD now shows up in the store, starts and seems to work. Haven't tested any other apps because I don't know which ones people have issues with.

    If you want to revert to the KF build props you need to flash the ROM again (no wipe required).

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Installation:

    Make sure you have the latest FFF and TWRP 2.1.x or 2.2.x installed. [Note: Don't use TWRP 2.3.1.1 until all issues are sorted out]
    Make a backup !!!
    Wipe data/factory reset. I also wipe /system when doing a clean install.
    Wipe cache
    Wipe dalvik
    Install ROM
    Install Google Apps for CM 10.0.x (20121011) from here: http://goo.im/gapps
    Reboot

    Upgrade from a previous version of this ROM:

    Reboot to recovery
    Install ROM
    Wipe cache/dalvik

    Android 4.2 is coming, It's taken quite a while to figure out our kernel issues and how to best solve them on our 512mb device. So now its just a matter of getting it done.

    And it might be followed up with a whole new kernel, or get released with it. (depending on how long its taking)..

    3.4.19 kernel based on TI's omap5 branch is booting. But needs some cleanup.

    New build is up:

    20121013-2036-Linaro (Alternate download)

    * Android 4.1.2

    Quite a few SGT7 changes and fixes (thanks sbrady):
    * Framework/Settings: Add status bar hide and expand notifications to hardware key override
    * Framework/Settings: Add optional phone status bar volume slider
    * Framework/Settings: Seperate navigation bar color
    * Framework/Settings: Shrink notification spacer when status bar is toggled
    * Framework/Settings: Status bar color
    * Framework/Settings: Allow wallpaper to fill entire screen
    * Framework/Settings: Change from edge gestures to gestures zones
    * Trebuchet: Move search preferences into separate category
    * Trebuchet: Add optional landscape left search bar
    * Trebuchet: Merge upstream Launcher2 changes
    * Trebuchet: Add option to disable workspace background shading
    * Trebuchet: Fix gestures out of order

    Note regarding the new gesture zones: It allows you, for example, to setup up to four top swipe zones. The second zone is the top swipe zone by default.
    sbrady might provide zone visualization in the future to make it easier to setup zones.

    Also, it seems that Google finally fixed the widget disappearing bug - at least for me HD Widgets survived a reboot after updating it.

    13 minutes ... that's how long a single build now takes on the new server I bought for myself as an early christmas present :)

    Now all I need is skills to fix the kernel (or graphics driver) to have a usable display on 4.2 .... but unfortunately I'm lacking those.
