Kindle Fire CM7

As we know CyanogenMod is an after market firmware for several mobile phones and tablet based on the Android OS, they already released CM7 which build from Gingerbread (2.3) and now still working to build CM9 which based on Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0). If the developers can make every little thing on Kindle Fire works with CM7 that’s mean this device may also work with CM9, let’s wait and watch when CM9 is released in early 2012. And also if you get worried about installing Amazon’s apps after upgrading, but shouldn’t to be worry since Amazon video app reported to work on other unrooted devices. This ROM isn’t suggested for novice users, since it still has several bugs and the root method is quite complicated, so if you’re not an advanced users you should stick on gingerbread. Many users are satisfied with stock firmware, you can read happy user reviews about this tablet.
