CyanogenMod support arrives for Amazon Kindle Fire HD

CyanogenMod is now officially supporting the Kindle Fire HD 7 and Kindle Fire HD 8.9. CyanogenMod 11 comes with a relatively clean version of KitKat, plus a number of enhancements that make CyanogenMod the single most popular custom ROM on the planet.

Kindle Fire HD features 1280×800 HD display with polarizing filter and anti-glare technology for rich colour and deep contrast from any viewing angle, Exclusive Dolby audio and dual-driver stereo speakers for virtual surround sound. Also, it is the world’s first tablet with dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi for over 35% faster downloads and streaming.

By looking at some of its specifications we can say that the hardware is pretty compelling; it is very affordable too. But Fire OS (operating system of Kindle device) doesn’t have the rich feature set compared to other flavours. But CyanogenMod has given us solution for Kindle Fire HD 7 and HD 8.9.

CyanogenMod is an open source operating system for smartphones and tablet computers, based on the Android mobile platform. It is developed as free and open source software based on the official releases of Android by Google, with added original and third-party code. CyanogenMod releases are provided on a nightly, milestone, and “stable version” schedule.

A CyanogenMod 11 nightly build for any device does not necessarily mean it will get a monthly snapshot release, much less a final stable CyanogenMod 11 release. It all depends on the state of the build at the time of testing and on the maintainer’s decision.

Please note that Muktware will not be responsible if you void your warranty. Kindly do the things carefully.

Check out the two links below to download CyanogenMod and install it to your Kindle Fire HD. Good luck with installation.
