I see, care to explain why. I remember in 2015 amazon was working on Android 5. too bad. they should have at least released the bootloader.
We need an unlocked bootloader for this to happen. Amazon are not going to release android 5 or any other updates for this phone. This has become clear. I agree it would have been great if they would have unlocked the bootloader at least.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Question 1:
    I installed HDX Nexus Gapps and now want to use Mini Gapps package. However CM-11 seems to preserve HDX Nexus Gapps. How do I fix this?
    - Flash this in Safestrap
    - This wll clean the /system partition ready for fresh installation.
    - You will then need flash a new ROM, Gapps etc.
    - This is required, as a result of a change I made in the recovery code to protect Safestrap from been wiped out.

    Question 2:
    My phone doesn't show up when connecting via USB, what's going on?
    - This may help
    - Go into Settings->Storage
    - Click on the 3 vertical dots in the top right corner
    - Select "USB computer connection"
    - Then select Connect as "Media device (MTP)"
    - Your phone should then appear as a Media Device

    Question 3:
    How do I get into Amazon's stock recovery?
    - With the phone powered off
    - Whilst holding the volume up key, press the power button.
    - When it power's on let go of the power button (still holding the volume up key)
    - You should end up in stock recovery.

    Question 4:
    The camera button isn't working on the 2015/07/25 build, how do I fix it?
    - On the lock screen look for the camera icon in the bottom right corner
    - swipe it left and select which camera you want as default

    Question 5:
    When will we get CM-12?
    - Hold the phone, we only just got CM-11 - enjoy!
    - We need an updated kernel so we need FireOS 5 with working root

    Question 6:
    Contribution by: @hijax2001
    How do I reset to Factory Stock 4.6.1 - removing CM11/root/Safestrap in the process?
    1) Downloaded Minimum ADB tools, installed to C:\ADB for convenience
    2) Downloaded 4.6.1 stock image from http://fire-phone-updates.s3.amazonaws.com/update-fire-phone-, saved it to C:\ADB and renamed this file update.bin
    3) Followed these steps to gain ADB USB access. Alternately, I found out later I could go to Settings on the phone, then to Device, then to "Get info about your Fire" and then tap on the Model Number several times until "Developer Options" comes up. Clicking that will take you to the option to enable "USB Debugging".
    4) I also grabbed the Kindle Fire ADB drivers from here for convenience in Step 7 (below)
    4) Rebooted into stock recovery by holding Power and Volume Up. Yes, you can do this from anywhere - phone on or off. And yes, you can still get to stock recovery this way even if you have Safestrap recovery installed
    5) Use volume down to reach "Apply update from ADB" option then press Power
    6) Open Command Prompt from Windows, reach your ADB folder (mine is C:\ADB in this example), type ADB devices. If you see what looks like a serial number (letters and numbers), then ADB is seeing your phone and you can skip to Step 8. If nothing there, follow Step 7.
    7) For me, ADB did not initially detect my phone. I ended up having to go into Control Panel in Windows, to Device Manager, find the Fire phone, choose Update Drivers, then Browse My Computer, Let Me Pick, Show All Devices, Have Disk, then find the folder from Step 4 (above) and add Android Composite ADB Interface by hand. Once I did that, I unplugged and replugged the USB to the phone and then typed "ADB devices" again at the ADB command prompt, like in Step 6. There it is! Ok, next step...
    8) Type the command ADB sideload update.bin and let the magic happen. When done, reboot the phone and everything is reset.
    9) If you're going to sell the phone, or if you don't want all of your Android apps from before repopulating (because some of them just aren't going to work or work correctly under Fire OS), immediately go to Settings/Device and "Factory reset your Fire" - this will wipe the SD partition where the old apps are saved.

    Cool side-note, regarding Step 9... I still had Nova launcher available. Running it under Fire OS works great! Nice to have the stability of the Fire OS the hardware desires, along with a zippy, traditional launcher to navigate.

    Question 7:
    Contribution by: @DatwasEz
    MUTE Button does not work during calls, what can I do about this?
    - Btw on a side note I have noticed that although mute button doesn't work during calls, you can press the pause button for hold, this acts like mute and they can't hear tested myself last night

    Question 8
    Contribution by: @gooserayos
    How do I configure Snap Camera HDR for my Fire Phone?
    - Click the bottom left menu icon then click the "Other" tab
    - Check "Show Advanced Settings"
    - Go back to "Photo" tab
    - Check "Zero Shutter Lag" and (optional) "Denoise"
    CM-12 Progress
