I know that this isn't Android related,
but I wanted to share one of my other projects, The Cooking Chapel.
This cooking show will bring you delicious home cooking and recipes made by Reverend Kyle, and his lovely assistant, Elizabeth.
In this first episode, we will be exploring the mysterious world of Goetta.
You can follow The Cooking Chapel on Facebook:

First of all, I do NOT recommend trying this. It will brick your device if done wrong.
The only reason I am even releasing this is because soooo many people have been asking.
I also don't recommend doing this process without a fastboot/oem/factory cable.
This is NOT the cable that came with your device! It is a specially made cable.
You also MUST have root access already on your Kindle Fire HD 7, and ADB on your computer.
This is confirmed to work on all current versions of the Kindle Fire HD 7 OS versions.
As far as I know, this will NOT work with the Kindle Fire 2. (Sorry, I don't have one to test on.)
For now, this process will only work fully from a Linux OS. I'm working on instructions for Windows as well.
Plug your device into your computer using your regular cable.
First of all, make backups of your current system blocks using these commands from ADB:
adb shell su -c "chmod 777 /dev/block/*"
adb pull /dev/block/mmcblk0p9
adb pull /dev/block/mmcblk0p10
adb pull /dev/block/mmcblk0p11
Keep in mind that mmcblkop11 is fairly large and it may take a while to pull.
Download these two files:
Put your device in fastboot mode. I downloaded an app called Root Toolbox Lite and used
REBOOT BOOTLOADER to put my device into fastboot mode. If you know of another way, please let me know.
Again, at your prompt, type these commands:
fastboot flash boot revboot.img -i 0x1949
fastboot flash recovery revboot.img -i 0x1949
fastboot flash system revboot.img -i 0x1949
fastboot reboot -i 0x1949
Your tablet should now reboot, and after a funky screen that says "Attempting to boot" with a broken image,
you should end up in Clockwork Recovery.
Back to your ADB:
adb push revrom_alpha1.zip /cache
You should now be able to go to CWM and Install from sdcard and see the zip file. Flash the rom.
Keep in mind that you may want to install a gapps file as well since my rom does not include this.
Once you have installed the rom and the gapps, reboot.
While creating this rom, I managed to brick my device several times. The only way I was able to bring it back was to use a fastboot cable.
DO NOT FORMAT ANYTHING WHILE IN CLOCKWORK RECOVERY!!!!!
IT WILL BREAK EVERYTHING!!!
If you are inexperienced with these processes, or do not have a fastboot cable,
I would seriously reconsider trying to load this. Also, if you skip any of these steps or type them incorrectly,
or decide to deviate in any way from my process, you're gonna have a bad time.
Thanks to green, Hashcode, Matr3x, and anyone else who assisted in getting this process working.
Remember to support the Android community.
This is the first look at CM10 running on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7" tablet. This is a VERY ROUGH beginning build and has a LOT of work that still needs to be done before it can be made available. This is based primarily on green's build for the 8.9" Kindle Fire HD.
Thanks to green and Hashcode for helping me fiddle through all of this.
Stay Tuned... There will be more as the development progresses.
This is being discussed over at XDA Developer's Forum until a fully working ROM is available. Come join the discussion!
