Download & Install Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM on Kindle Fire

Yeah… I have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM running on Amazon Kindle Fire. Thanks to all the developers that make this Android 4.0.3 ICS ROM for Kindle Fire. It is like beta build to me. Therefore, not everything is working properly. But you can download and install Android 4.0 ICS ROM on your Kindle Fire to have a feel of the Android Operating System that developed for both Android phone and tablet. Most of all, this is the Android OS that should be used by tablet like Kindle Fire. Not Android 2.3 Gingerbread on tablet. Come on, give Android 4.0 ICS a try on your Kindle Fire…

Wow… Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich really looks good on Kindle Fire. Okay, as mentioned, there are some applications still have issues. Video and music playback are not working yet. But Angry Birds is running smoothly with sounds. By the way, you need to install Android Market manually. For me, spending my time to explore ICS… Be sure to visit XDA website for the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for Kindle Fire. Looking forward to the stable Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for Kindle Fire in next few months ahead…

  1. Seems like it comes pre-loaded Android Market. But still need to install the Kindle reading apps to read ebook.
    Will try this once I am able to figure out why my Kindle cannot be updated with ADB usb driver even on my home PC. πŸ™

  2. Jayce, I was able to installed the ADB usb driver finally. Just need to set the User Account Control setting to ‘Never notify’ and Windows will allow be to update the drive.

    I try the Android 4.0 ICS but I think its still quite buggy. The Launcher quits suddenly, wifi is not working etc. hence I re installed back to Kindly Fire stock ROM.

    Let’s wait for a more stable ICS.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Kudus to you and your group for all your help and advice. I am donating by the way.
    Just start to root my KF. Is best way to begin get the Utility since it has most prgs to start. Next put the ADB update drivers and root using the utility zip file with prgs or this way

    Download jcase’s Kindle Fire root app.
    Run the root app and click “Root.”
    On your PC, in a command prompt, type “adb root.”
    Download Superuser.
    Unzip Superuser.
    In the command prompt, type:

    adb remount

    adb push su /system/xbin/su

    adb shell chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su

    adb shell chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su

    adb install

    adb reboo

  4. which way is safer easier also when I root using either process is the droid market available or is another step required

    thanks in advance

  5. Lastly is it best to 1st prior to doing anything use TWRP and backup KF os is adb drivers best to install 1st and TWRP 2nd does it matter?

  6. I recently installed Ics on my kindle fire without doing backup in twrp is there way to go back to stock or at least cm7 since I can’t access my USB mass storage and also it for matted drive space to smaller amount I think I have about 1 gb after I flashed it to Ics rom. Followed ur guides but don’t know what to do now.

  7. When i tried to get the ice cream sandwich it says “Sorry he application ICS 4.0 Launcher (process android.process.acore) has stopped unexpectedly.Please try again. Then it has a button that says Force Close.It wont let me do anything please help!!!! πŸ™
