Today, I posted over at XDA (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2100963) the instructions for setting up a 2nd-bootloader, TWRP and CM10.1 on the Kindle Fire 2.
Sounds boring? Why all the fuss over another Kindle Fire being turned into an Android tablet?
The new Kindle Fires from Amazon have bootloaders which attempt to prohibit flashing a custom OS. But, when developer fattire (of Nook Color fame) pointed out a potential exploit.. What can I say, I had to jump on it. :)
So after a week or 2 of work, and some help from verygreen (another NookColor dev) the end result is that AOSP-based Android can now be run on the new Kindle Fire 2.
I’m also working on similar setups for the KFireHD’s (specifically the 8.9 at this time) .. so look for more Kindle Fire fun to come.
