I mentioned that Amazon Kindle Fire is not perfect on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich due to poor kernel support. However, thing had changed and changing fast. Lot of developers like Hashcode are working hard to make a better Android 4.0 ICS Kernel on Kindle Fire. Yes, we have better display driver and audio driver. Ducati / hardware codecs are working now. I can play 1080p MP4 video smoothly now thanks to hardware accelerated GPU support. This 3.0 Kernel is getting better each day. But it does have bugs like can’t shutdown properly issue. So only try this beta kernel if you know what you are doing…
You can download Hashcode 3.0 Kernel for Kindle Fire and install it with TWRP 2.0 or CWM on any Android 4.0 ICS ROM for Kindle Fire. Or wait for your favorite ICS ROM chef to include it. Then try it out. Be sure to check for the detail 3.0 Kernel known bugs at XDA website.
