Still don’t have USB OTG cable? Then you are not getting all the features out of your Android devices. Of course, your Android devices need to support USB host function in order for you to use USB On-The-Go. It enables USB flash drive, mouse, keyboard, joypad or any USB peripherals that support USB OTG on your Android devices. My Samsung Galaxy S II, Amazon Kindle Fire (using custom ROM), Samsung Galaxy S III and Google Nexus 7 support USB OTG. It is ashamed that HTC One X does not support USB OTG natively. Not going to install custom ROM (which supports USB OTG) until S-OFF for HTC One X is available…

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on Kindle Fire is getting better each day thanks to CyanogenMod 10 fast development. Of course, Hashcode kernel is helping too. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM for Kindle Fire that I tested was based on CM10 ROM with the framework, settings and Launcher2 enhancements from Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 project. This CM10 ROM is almost like Google Nexus 7. The interface is based on Google Nexus 7 phone mode by default. But you can change into tablet mode as well.
How to install Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM on Kindle Fire? Yeah, Google released Android 4.1 Jelly Bean source code to AOSP few days ago. And most developers started to work and port Android 4.1 Jelly Bean AOSP to Amazon Kindle Fire. So you can ask this question now. As usual, don’t expect much from a newly built Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM for Kindle Fire. Bugs will be here and there. But it is considered good for such new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM. Hehe… I may not have Google Nexus 7 but I have Kindle Fire with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean now.
Any Android Open Kang Project (AOKP) fans here? You can enjoy Official AOKP Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for Amazon Kindle Fire now. It is supported by AOKP team themselves. Current official build 37 was compiled with old kernel (no Hashcode 3.0 Kernel) and has Wi-Fi issue. So I tested latest test release build with Hashcode 3.0 Kernel. So you get all hardware acceleration support in this ROM. And feel free to customize AOKP settings in ROM Control to match your taste.
Titanium Backup is the primary reason that I want to root Amazon Kindle Fire. Titanium Backup needs root access to backup / restore apps. So how to root Kindle Fire? Very simple, just use SuperOneClick to root Kindle Fire. Really, just one single click.
