Love this mod, nice work.

However, I am wondering a few things.

Are you using burrito root 3 for this Gr6 Rom? I see it says rooted, but don't see with what.

If you are not using burritoroot 3, is there any point to use that on top of this rom, will it even work?

That is their loss really as you are doing great work for the kindle fire. I see the point(advertising is wrong on there) but they coulda given you a break after seeing you are a very helpful poster on that forum.

My KF is rooted, running MIUI and still at 6.2.1 Can I use this or do I need to take the update first?

My Pulse icon is all grey. The app works just fine. It just looks weird. Not a big problem.

Could you please tell me more detail about how to camouflage as Galaxy Tab ? I try to modify build.prop but it does not work. Thank you very much.

I am getting extremely tempted to try this ROM out. I have one question though. Will the device work as a "Kindle Device" with this ROM? Or will it be just another tab and I have to use the Kindle app?

Paul:
I was looking for a ROM that will be an add on to stock and after reading raving reports in the XDA forum, installed today and I am just flying now. The installation was even easier without any wipe. Full market with Network location, what more one could get? Thank you for bringing this ROM.

Same here... the icon is all grey and looking dumb. App works just fine though.

This happened after I updated the app from the market. Probably the way the app is delivered with modaco is not compatible with market update.

Similarly, I am unable to update my Adobe Air app from the market as it says it is incompatible. It worked on the CM7 though. :-(



EDIT: I went into applications and uninstalled the updates from the Pulse reader app. Now the icon appears all fine. Maybe there could also be a difference when the app is installed through amazon app store and updated through market. Not sure on that.


EDIT2: Or not... The icon on the carousel showed up fine, but the icon on the Apps and Favourties are still grey. Probably missing a bitmap after the update?

很好用,谢谢!



Hi all!

I've started playing more with my Kindle Fire so i've mad 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 6.2.2 release
  • Heavily optimised and compressed to take as little space as possible and perform as fast as possible!
  • Includes Google Services Framework and Android Market, masquerading as Galaxy Tab for maximum app availability
  • 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. :)

Paul:
Is there a fix to show "PULSE" icon correctly instead of a grey square?
Will Voice search work in this ROM using the 3 pin headset with microphone? I tried and was not successful.

Thank you.

Hi Paul,

I've been very happy your roms for my mobile and was very happy to find that you've started playing with this device!

I have gotten ADB, BurritoRoot3 and TWRP v2.0.0 running, I then install a kitchen bake zip using TWRP.

A few errors pop up, most seem benine (i didn't sign the bake, etc.), and the update installs, writes Data, System, Boot, Finishes Up, however the install concludes with the following error (also present at the start of the install):

E:Unable to load volume /misc!


Any idea what this one means?

Rebooted into the Kindle, and it's running your rom without issue so far so this is just paranoia/curiosity mostly.


Cheers,

Sam

If I were to take ur custom rom build.prop and use it on a stock rooted 6.2.2 rom, will it work and the android market will recognise it as a Galaxy Tab device?
