The Amazon Kindle Fire HD is one of the first few Kindle models from Amazon that come with a higher resolution display, definitely with a far higher resolution compared to the original Kindle Fire. Unfortunately for those who love to tinker with stuff underneath the hood, the Kindle Fire HD comes with a locked bootloader, making it far harder to replace Amazon’s software with a custom operating system compared to the original Kindle Fire. Still, we humans love a challenge, which is why you do not see anyone giving up just like that.

It seems that hackers have managed to figure out a method to work around the locked bootloader issue, followed by installing the ClockworkMod custom recovery, making life a whole lot more easier and enjoyable for one to load custom firmware on the tablets. Not only that, we have word that an unofficial version of CyanogenMod 10 for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is already well on its way, being based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Sounds as though Kindle Fire HD owners are in for a whale of a time!
