Good news Nexus S owners, if you’re looking for a rather interesting port for your handset, it seems that thanks to XDA Senior Member, GalaxyUser, the Kindle Fire 8.9 port has made its way onto your device! This is a pretty interesting reversal as for the most port, Kindle Fire owners have turned to alternative ports, so having a tablet ROM ported onto a smartphone, well we expect that the experience should be an interesting one. We don’t have a Nexus S so we don’t know what the experience will be like, although it seems that at the moment, the port appears to be in its early stages which means that it probably isn’t a good idea for you to use it as a daily driver.
There are many features which aren’t working yet, such as the camera, Bluetooth, sound, SD card, calling and etc. However if you have an old Nexus S lying around and wouldn’t mind giving this port a spin, perhaps to help provide some feedback to the developer, you can check it out on the XDA forums, but keep in mind that you should probably proceed with caution and like its developer has stated, use it at your own risk!
