Two low-cost tablets from Amazon just became even cheaper. The Kindle Fire HD 6 and Kindle Fire HD 7 normally cost $99 and $139, respectively. Just in time for the holidays, the two now have price tags of $79 and $109. Giving the gift of an Amazon product is valuable due to the core services built around them.
The Kindle Fire 2 is now a part of the 7" Kindle Fire HD forum.
In terms of software, the Kindle Fire 2 is much closer to the 7" Kindle Fire HD than the original Kindle Fire. The two are similarly equipped with locked bootloaders, run ICS and share the same rooting method. Consequently, the KF2 has now been made a part of this 7" KF HD forum.
Last night, i was using the Kindle Fire First Aide to restore my kindle fire hd to 7.2.3. After it downloaded the files, it failed on one when flashing. All was fine though. I rebooted back to normal mode and it booted fine, i was using the Kinology rom. I then factory resetted my kindle and after rebooting, it now bootloops all the time.
