Okay, so it was only a few minutes ago that I told you guys the Kindle Fire source code had been made available by Amazon. Now, that’s all fine and dandy for creating custom ROMs but there’s only one small problem — you can’t install a custom ROM without first getting root onto your device.

Well, no sooner do I check our Phantips that I learn the rooting roadblock has been removed thanks to death2all11o from our very own Android Forums. Mr. Death created a very nice “how-to” guide in the Kindle Fire forums detailing the exact steps needed to root the Kindle Fire. And let me tell you, it’s pretty easy.

I think it’s time we start taking bets on how soon we’ll see Ice Cream Sandwich on this baby. It’s going to be really hard to resist buying this tablet for my stocking stuffer…
