    Well someone is producing these nightly builds, not frequently I grant, but they are working toward a release build, so don't knock it.

    Here's the original ROM Thread ... Check it out.
    https://devs-base.com/viewtopic.php?t=362

    Active development has been stopped only Upstream updates. If you guys want a stable Rom use px Rom based on Amazon
    Maybe someone will release a working 4.4.4 with latest security.

    Amazon Apps Fix

    Hello
    First I want to say thank you very much for this ROM. It keeps my Kindle alive. I will take it with me on vacation next week.
    The only thing is that the Amazon Apps from Google Plaxstore crash..
    Amazon Shop doesnt open,, Prime Video is very slow and Kindle App doesnt synchronise.
    I have noticed that other users report the same issues but I dont undetstand the solution.
    Can anybody help me so that I can take the kindle with me at vacation...?
    Thank you!

    I think you are talking about the build.prop solution. In summary it's a file stored on the /system folder of your device which needs to have some properties changed.

    On your system build.prop file you need to change the ro.product.brand and ro.product.manufacturer properties to the values bellow (other values might work, but these ones are working for me so far):

    Code:
    ro.product.brand=google
    ro.product.manufacturer=htc

    If you don't know how to make this type of change, you could Google "edit build.prop using adb". There are different methods and supposing you have TWRP recovery these instructions might be enough for you:
    1. Setup ADB on your PC.
    2. Boot your Android device into TWRP recovery.
    3. Select Mount » and then select System from the list of partitions to mount the system partition and then go back.
    4. Connect your device to the PC with an authentic USB cable.
    5. Open a command window on the PC and issue the following command to pull build.prop file from the device:
      Code:
      adb pull /system/build.prop
    6. The above command will download the build.prop file to your PC in the same directory where your command prompt is running from. Tip: Make a copy of the build.prop file before you edit it so that you’ve a backup of the original file.
    7. Open the build.prop file on your PC using any text editor.
    8. Edit the build.prop file as per your requirement and save it on the PC after making the changes.
    9. Once you’ve saved the edits to the build.prop file, push it back to the device using the following command:
      Code:
      adb push build.prop /system/
    10. Now set the correct permissions for the build.prop file with following commands (issue them one-by-one):
      Code:
      adb shell
      cd system
      chmod 644 build.prop
    11. Once you’ve set the correct permission for build.prop file, reboot your device to system from TWRP’s Reboot » System option.
