CM7 For Kindle Fire With Audio & In-Browser Video [Download & Install]

image44 CM7 For Kindle Fire With Audio & In Browser Video [Download & Install]View in galleryCyanogenMod 7 ROM for the Kindle Fire now has working audio and video. Earlier we covered a post on CM7 for the Kindle Fire by XDA-Developers forum member JackpotClavin but that ROM had quite some stuff missing, majorly audio and video support. XDA-Developers forum member whisteltop has picked up where JackpotClavin left off, with the intention of working on his build and bringing audio and video to the kindle fire on CM7. He has apparently managed to succeed in doing so and according to him, he had the ROM tested by some users who report it to function without any issues so far.

As for the video support, the ROM now supports video in the browser as well. So if you wish to give this version of CM7 a go on your Kindle Fire, here’s how you can do that.

Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if your device gets damaged or bricked during the process.

Requirements:

Instructions:

    1. Download the ROM, KF’s recovery, and log last_log. file from the link above and copy them to the root of your SD card.
    2. Download the stock recovery as well, but do not copy it to the root of your SD card.
    3. Connect your device with the PC and open up terminal or command prompt to enter the following commands:
      adb shell
      
      cd cache
      
      mkdir recovery
      
      cd /
      
      cp /sdcard/log /cache/recovery/
      
      cp /sdcard/last_log /cache/recovery/
      
      dd if=/sdcard/updaterecovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/by-name/recovery
      
      idme bootmode 0x5001
      
      reboot
    4. Now in recovery, you will see that the first option highlighted, is Install update.zip from sdcard. Press the Power button (ok).
    5. When prompted to install, press the Power button again. The recovery is modded because it can’t be navigated through right now. No here is actually Yes so just select that.
    6. Once the ROM is flashed, without rebooting your phone, open up command prompt or terminal and navigate to the location where the stock recovery is.
    7. Now enter the following commands:
    adb shell
    
    mount sdcard
    
    exit
    
    adb push/sbin/
    
    dd if=/sbin/stockrecovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/by-name/recovery
    
    adb reboot

    The device will reboot twice now, and once it’s done, the CM7 logo will appear. For updates and queries, head over to the forum thread at XDA-Developers.

        In a file explorer sd card is home base! So its like sd card/download/games/ etc.. etc.. sd card is just the system memory
