hi all. so quiet here. like a dead thread. new kf user here. want to share my kf story.

1. after considering all type of tablet/ereader (for reading pdf), i decide to buy kindle fire.

2. with all options available, i opt to buy from amazon directly. i found refurbish kf at $20 cheaper (that is RM60+)!

3. finally my kf arrived!

4. unboxing... do google forunboxing video
Attached Image

5. first time boot
Attached Image

6. after playing and messing with amazon stock rom, 6 hours later
Attached Image

7. and today
Attached Image

finally i have the ultimate reading device. kindle, nook, kobo, adobe, aldiko all in my kf running ics.

what i like:
+ sleek design
+ high end spec
+ gorilla glass!
+ easily root & custom rom availability. thanks xda

the minus
- no sd card!
- no bluetooth, gps, camera, ...

but depends on how u want to use it, as an ebook reader, kf suit my purpose.

i would recommend for those who want to root or flash custom rom, do check kf xda forum
http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1309

i would be happy to share my K in this forum.

thank you & sorry for the long post blink.gif

it is easy, just follow the basic adb command or u can use "kindle fire utility" which can root your kindle using a script.

ICS custom ROMs are all in Alpha stage. Better try CM7 since CM7 build for KF is port from Tablet existed in Cyganmod forum. Will be safer. I haven't decide which to try. Still researching. Anyway , to root a KF is definitely easy. Just follow steps. Make sure u r stable. Thats all.
