Kindle Fire Jelly Bean

If you’ve got a Kindle Fire and you don’t feel like using Amazon’s customized version of Android – why not give it an upgrade to the latest version of Android? As usual, the folks over at XDA-Developers have worked their magic and come up with a custom ROM for the Amazon Kindle Fire. The ROM is still in beta but it’s usable enough though there are few features not working, namely HD codecs, and USB Mass Storage. It’s probably loaded with bugs as well, but you can expect them to be fixed in future versions. But if those problems don’t deter you, you’re free to go ahead and download the ROM from XDA-Developers. Be sure you know what you’re doing and backup your device before attempting anything. Do let us know how it goes for you.
