Default Unofficial Ice Cream Sandwich Build for the Kindle Fire

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://liliputing.com/2011/12/android-4-0-ice-cream-sandwich-coming-to-the-kindle-fire-unofficially.html' target='_blank'>http://liliputing.com/2011/12/andro...officially.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Sure, installing CyanogenMod 7 on an Amazon Kindle Fire is cool and all. But xda-developers forum member x1011999 decided to skip Android 2.3 Gingerbread and port Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to run on Amazon&rsquo;s $199 tablet."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1323711229.usr309.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>The Kindle Fire has some decent hardware in it.&nbsp; While it only has 512MB of RAM, a little light especially for a tablet, it does have a dual-core 1GHz OMAP CPU and a decent SGX540 GPU.&nbsp; The Ice Cream Sandwich build for the Fire is still in the early stages.&nbsp; Basic features like audio and WiFi are not working.&nbsp; But if you like to play with bleeding edge ROMs on new hardware you should definitely look into this a little more.&nbsp; Check out the source article for a video of ICS in action on the Kindle Fire.</p>
