MIUI Makes Its Way to the Kindle Fire

We all knew it would be happening soon, as the AOSP ROMs are essentials for most new phones and tablets and the Amazon Kindle Fire is the latest and greatest device that MIUI calls home and the development of the Amazon Kindle Fire remains on fire (bad pun ftw!).
XDA Senior Member leech2082 released the port which, for a first release, has a surprisingly low number of things not working in comparison to most ports that make first appearances on devices. According to him:
Everything seems to be working except MIUI Themeing and Video! Certainly you guys will find something I missed
So if MIUI theming and video are a couple of things you can live without and MIUI is something you’ve been waiting for, then now would be a great time to check it out. The installation instructions are easy and pretty standard for a ROM flash. Boot into recovery, wipe everything, flash and profit.
The boot up can take a few minutes, and as leech2082 will tell you:
what i have found is the boot animation may cycle twice before fully booting. Also after flash when you hit reboot sometimes it brings up the TWRP screen again. If that happens just hit reboot. Since there is not hard buttons on kindle we included Button Savior you will see if on the right side of screen by default
Not a big deal and easily fixable so nothing to be scared of and no reason not to take advantage of the always fun MIUI goodness. For more information, the shout outs, download links, screenshots and more thorough instructions, feel free to mosey on over to the original thread.
