Indeed, the results of Cracked Kindle Fire are still not perfect. Audio support, WiFi, accelerometer and light sensor can not be found on the Cracked Kindle Fire tablet. Steven reportedly intends to publish open source projects specifically to run the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system in the Kindle Fire. He will share the code that he used in the demo on this project.

So far, the Kindle has succeeded in Fire-root to install the Android Market. Supposedly, Kindle Fire only provides access to Amazon AppStore. In addition, CyanogenMod7 custom ROM (based on Android 2.3 / Gingerbread) is also available to install on KindleFire.
