Kindle Fire Gets Ice Cream Sandwich, Pre-Alpha
For those of you who don’t fancy running Amazon’s heavily modified Android version, even with root, there’s a new option on the horizon: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. After forum member g1011999 manged to get it booting three weeks ago, JackpotClavin, who’s also responsible for the Kindle Fire’s CyanogenMod 7 port, has posted a working build that he says isn’t even alpha.
So, unless you want to help on the development or are really curious (we know you are), we’d suggest you to wait for a more stable version. For everyone else, head over to the forum thread to get downloading and flashing.
