Kindle Fire from Amazon has nice hardware which excels as a reading device. The device is good but the lack of customization available for the OS or the limitation of more productivity apps makes few look towards Android OS.
There is a way to install Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on Kindle Fire but the build is buggy and may cause frequent freezing of your device. This isn’t the case with everyone but few are facing the issue. So, we say, think before you go for installing ICS on Kindle Fire.
- You device should be Rooted. Check this tutorial.
- Install TWRP 2.0 – a touch-based custom recovery for the Kindle Fire. Check out Liliputing’s guide for installing TWRP.
Procedure for Installing Android 4 (ICS) on Kindle Fire
- Download Android 4.0.3 ICS Experimental Build [MediaFire]. Transfer it to the root of your Kindle Fire’s internal storage.
- Shut down your Kindle Fire. Once it is completely turned off, tap the power button to turn it on. When you see the yellow triangle on the display, press and hold power button until you boot into TWRP.
- Take a backup from the backups section on TWRP and Wipe out everything from TWRP, including Dalvik cache.
- Tap Install and select the file you transferred to your Kindle Fire in Step 1. Once selected, tap flash.
- From the main menu, tap reboot system.
