While the iPads are still the world’s highest selling slates, the only contender that has taken it down to the nerves of Apple is the little Amazon Kindle Fire. Released back in late 2011, the little slate holds the record of the world’s best selling Android tablet to it’s name. Back then, it boasted the most robust set of hardware and that just seems to be the reason behind the Kindle Fire becoming a favorite for the developer’s community as the list of updates is amongst the best of the lot and is still ticking while we have this latest on in the slot for you.
This is an Android 4.2.2 CM10.1 based ROM which can be flashed onto your Amazon Kindle Fire to fetch it the latest set of firmware that one can avail at the present moment of time. CM10.1 or Cyanogenmod 10.1 is the latest off-market firmware released by the best in the business, the Cyanogenmod team and is based on the latest Android 4.2.2 which started to seed only a week back to the Nexus family.
Done with that, let’s begin with the installation tutorial of the ROM.
