I'm just gonna apologize in advance for this question, but I honestly don't know who else to ask. I'm the king of the noobs. There may be some unwritten rule not to ask this question so once again, sorry. I bought this Kindle Fire HD in hopes of custom roms, as I'm sure many did. $200.00 is a lot of money for me and I feel like I'm running out of time to send it back.
I need ROMS that allow for bluetooth tethering. I have gotten pyr-o-ice_ICS_1.0.2 to work, but it does not seem to want to use 4G. The best I can get is 3G. I am also having problems with some apps I use a lot (like Kindle). So, I would like to try some other ROMS. I have tried Wildchild_IcE_Rom_v0.9 and cm-9.1.0-doubleshot, but both get stuck on their splash screen during boot.
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.
