    Much appreciated
    As of yesterday, I just broke my tablet, the screens are way too easy to smash, I've got a new screen coming in the mail, and also a little mouse adaptor so I can use the tablet without touching the screen. But I'll have a go a saving the file.

    One other thing to note, make sure you check the voltage of your car charger, the standard microusb chargers for cars are for mobile phones, so they require less juice. It'll still charge, but it'll take twice as long.

    kind of off topic, but i recently picked up a kindle fire(not the HD version) and the stock screen is starting to bother me.. where did you find the info to root it? i'm new to the concept, but would like to learn as amazons idea of how i should use it has nothing to do with how i really use it..

    Rooting them is pretty easy, but unless you want to play with more advanced parts of the tablet, it doesn't do much. What you want to do is flash it to a new rom (basically like upgrading from Vista - Win7). It's a new operating system that's simplified, without all the bloatware that usually comes with a tablet, you'll be able to upgrade it to have all the voice recognition too. So say "navigate to Adelaide", and it'll bring up all nagivation apps and do it automatically.

    You can get the rooting information here:

    And to flash to a new rom, go to here:
    http://rootkindlefire.com/category/kindle-fire-roms/

    It can be a little fiddly first time round, but follow the instructions and you'll be alright.

    The kindle fire doesn't have a mic and i use the wall charger with a converter so it does charge fast.

    For rooting and rom info go here

    Why root it again? It's already busted once!

    I'm surprised the auto-censor didn't pick that word. Like I mean if it picks a trivial term like wa-n-ker, surely it would pick a word that not only means up-suffed or wrecked but also mean intimate copulation?

    Yep, we male Aussies tend not to root for our football teams. Well, we tend to not root the teams themselves.

    My apologies. I thought a bit of (IMO) light-hearted humor would go down well.

    I was drawn to this thread because it involves a Kindle Fire that had been wrecked by an ICS CM3 install. That concern was somewhat misplaced.


    Of course it does highlight cultural differences and how the autocensor does allow certain offensive words.
    My "waLker" comment referred to how that was censored/modified in another recent thread. But I wasn't aware it was a target word - it can be used as a term of affection here.
    But that would be getting somewhat serious wouldn't it?, and I only sought humor.

    Sorry about the delay. Screen is still busted, and but I got a usb mouse adapter. So try this.

    File works, function does not.
    Airplane mode turns on via tasker but not off with power.

    I would really like to get the kindle to wake up/screen on when plugged in and off when unplugged.... car on/off

    im pritty sure this is impossible with tasker, never get any thing to function correctly with it... at least on custom roms.
