In a new video posted on YouTube, user g1011999 shows a Kindle Fire running a working version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). He demos that the touchscreen seems to work fine and that the graphics aren’t too choppy or anything, but tells us that basics like WiFi, audio, accelerometer, and light sensor are not yet working. He promises an open-source project that he’ll push his code to, so this could be a very promising first step towards an Android Ice Cream Sandwich ROM that works on Kindle Fire. Check out the video below:
User g1011999 has created a thread over at xda-developers that he’s posting his progress in: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1379208.
He has also uploaded the source code for his kernel, which you’ll find at https://github.com/g1011999/Android-kernel-for-kindle-fire.
