Kindle Fire Gets Visit From CyanogenMod 7

If you are at all familiar with the rooting of Android devices and custom ROM’s, then I am sure you have heard of CyanogenMod and its CM line of custom ROM’s. CM7 has got to be one of the most popular Android custom ROM’s and can be found for both phones and tablets. The latest addition to devices seen running CM7 is the Amazon Kindle Fire. Although still in its early stages, XDA member, JackpotClavin, has posted a few images of his Fire running the CM7 ROM but it definitely needs more work before I can recommend that you try it out.

At the moment, a few things aren’t working properly like the touchscreen (rather important, no?) and the fact that you loose Amazon integration, preventing access to the Appstore and the like. On the up side though, Wi-Fi is working and if you don’t like the Amazon UI than this enhanced version of Android Gingerbread might just be up your alley. For more details about CM7 on the Kindle Fire, hit the source link below. Looks a bit rough to me so I recommend sitting on the sidelines until they get all the issues figured out, but I reckon that shouldn’t be too long from now anyway.

    According to reports, source code for Honeycomb has been released together with ICS. I hope they consider making CyanogenMod 8 into device, and of course the most awaited CyanogenMod 9.
