CyanogenMod 7 Hacked Onto Kindle Fire

Many announcements have been occurring with the new work of Cyanogen team, even some versions of CM9 starting to pop out for the Nexus S and Galaxy S. But now we want to let you know about the latest CyanogenMod ROM 7 for the Kindle Fire; XDA member JackpotClavin posted a couple of images showing the Gingerbread-based ROM booted up on his 7-inch Kindle tablet, he is not giving the code for download yet because there are still a lot of bugs to work out.

With source code and root firmly in hand it was only a matter of time before someone got a custom ROM up and running on the Kindle Fire. Judging from the pictures it seems that WiFi is working but if you are not a power user we recommend waiting for something a little more polished before risking your shiny new Kindle.

[ROM] CM7 for the Kindle Fire

Howdy everybody! I just got CM7 to boot for the first time on the Kindle Fire. As of right now, I believe the touch screen is off 90 degrees. I know there’s a fix in the source code, I just forgot where it is but I’ll look. It might actually be an edit to the build.prop.

Since we can’t navigate to items in Clockwork, we have to bring the items to us. Basically what I did was I shifted the entries of Clockwork so the “Install update.zip from sdcard” was listed first, not the Reboot system now option. That way, we can just press OK (The power button) and it’ll install the CM zip. I also changed it so you don’t have to scroll all the way down to the “Yes” option to confirm install as I pushed that to the top also so we can just press OK. In the update.zip I included the wiping of system, data, and cache because we can’t navigate to mounts and storage to wipe those things in Clockwork, so we have to do it automagically.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
