I present to you AOKP for the Kindle Fire
Milestone 6

Let me start off by giving thanks to some people that have made this possible.
Team Kang:
Jonathon Grigg
Khas Mek

And a big thanks to Hashcode who has made a 3.0 kernel for this great piece of hardware!

So what makes this build different from the stock (no longer supported) ROM? Well here's a list of features I've added:

System UI
  • Added volume slider w/mute to the status bar settings panel for quick access to system volume level
  • Added a screenshot button, which can be enabled in ROM Control, to allow quick access taking a screenshot of current screen.

  • Added an easy access settings button at top right of home screen
  • Added dual docks - now you can use up some of that empty space by placing apps and shortcuts into these two docks for quick access to these apps on any home screen

ROM Control
  • Added screenshot button which can be added to the navbar buttons
  • Added settings for changing location of the volume slider in the stats bar settings panel

At this time I have not found any issues with the ROM. If you find a problem/issue/bug please let me know what it is and how to re-create the problem. Working with the source is far easier than the work I have done with MIUI so I have much more control over the issues.
