The Amazon Kindle Fire is not your archetypal Android tablet by any stretch of the imagination, but that hasnít stopped members of the modding community from treating it as such. With Android Jelly Bean now beginning its official rollout, those looking to install it on their Amazon tablet can now do so thanks to an AOSP-based Jelly Bean (4.1.1) ROM.
This one arrives courtesy of XDA Developers member Hashcode, and although itís said to run fairly smoothly, its beta state mean it does have its fair share of imperfections. For example, there are issues with the HD codecs, which affect the use of both YouTube and Netflix, but with Texas Instruments soon to be updating the libion code, that problem should be eradicated in the next couple of days. Besides the codec problem, the screen is described as over-rotating, and turning on UMS is proving to be a little more difficult than it perhaps should, but again, that should soon be historical record.
