Amazon's Kindle Fire was rooted on the 16th of this month, which two weeks later has led to the inevitable CyanogenMod ROM. JackpotClavin over on the xda forums has a couple of images proving that CM7 works on the Fire, though it's still very early days. Wi-Fi is operational, but the tablet's touchscreen controller is interpreting input incorrectly, which is rather slowing down testing on what else might or might not work. You can keep track of this ROM's progress at the source link below, though do keep in mind that switching from Amazon's custom Android OS to CM7 will deprive you from the slate's biggest selling point: the integrated Amazon ecosystem.
