Kindle Fire Source Code Now Available And Ready For Download


Well, that wasn’t too long at all. Complying with the AOSP agreement, Amazon has released the source code to the recently release Kindle Fire. While this may not mean too much for your average Joe or soccer mom, this is how developers and modders are able to create custom ROMs, kernels and generally make some really cool stuff happen for a device. While that’s not totally certain, it is the first steps to making that happen. Now, all we can do is wait to see if the Kindle Fire can be rooted and we may see some custom ROMs cooked up for the device in the very near future.

If you want to take a peak at the source code, head on over to the source link for the download.

  1. I’m actually going to get one, and of course root it and run a custom ICS rom when that is all available in the near future. For $200 bucks why not!

  3. I have a phone that does the same thing, except better

  4. Wrong. AOSP does not require people to open source their modifications as most of it is either BSD, MIT or Apache licensed. It’s only the GPLed Linux Kernel part of Android that requires this. So only their kernel modifications must be released.
