Hi all!

I've started playing more with my Kindle Fire so i've made a first early MoDaCo Custom ROM for the device.

Flashing is recommended using TWRP, ALWAYS BACK UP BEFORE FLASHING! Wipe is not required.

Features:
  • Based on the 6.3.1 release
  • Heavily optimised and compressed to take as little space as possible and perform as fast as possible!
  • Includes Google Services Framework and Google Play Store, masquerading as Galaxy Tab for maximum app availability
  • Optional Google Books / Music
  • Network location support (for Maps etc.)
  • Rooted with Superuser
  • Insecure boot image (for 'adb remount' etc.)
  • init.d support
  • TweakDeck Twitter client Kindle Fire version (can be uninstalled)
I'll be doing more tweaks as I mess around with the device more together with more kitchen features, so watch this space. :)

Prebakes are available for everyone to download, the MoDaCo Online Kitchen is available to MoDaCo AdFree and MoDaCo Plus members. NEW - you can now get MoDaCo AdFree for FREE via TrialPay - click here for details!

There may be a short wait while the load balancing software determines the best kitchen to serve your ROM. The kitchen should appear below within 20 seconds.

Any chance of mirroring the file somewhere faster?

Thanks for your work Paul.

Hi Paul, A few questions

1 I am running rooted 6.2.2 do I need an updated version of this to install ?

2 If it masquarades as a Galaxy tab does this mean that the amazon appstore won't let it download Kindle fire versions of Apps or do amazon still see it as a kindle

Thanks

I will update this to 6.2.2 shortly.

If you use a 3rd party launcher, you can uninstall the MoDaCo Market Launcher app.

I will be making one of my usual online kitchens, so if you're a MoDaCo Ad Free / Plus member you'll be able to use that. Of course, i'll still have the prebake too.

Thanks Paul,

1) Does this stop the Amazon OTA updates or do I need to do something else.

2) Is the Kitchen version a better one and if so what features. Am I right in thinking it will be $9 to get this. I'm quite interested if it is as I love the Amazon skin but want market and other tweaks.

Paul, would you upload this to a new hosting system? FileSonic isn't allowing sharing any longer, and I really want to try this out.
