Finally, CyanogenMode 7 for Kindle Fire has arrived. XDA-Developers forum member “JackpotClavin” has released a ROM for users to download and install on their Kindle tablets. While the ROM might not be free of glitches just yet, it does seem to have a lot of things working and can be used as a daily driver. For more information, see below video by “Jeff Benjamin”, followed by detailed guide for installing CyanogenMod 7 on your Kindle Device.

CyanogenMod 7 ROM.
ClockworkMod recovery (for Kindle Fire).
Step 1: Download the ROM, KF’s recovery and log last_log. file and copy them to the root of the SD card.
Step 2: Now, download stock recovery (do not copy to SD Card root directory as yet).
Step 3: Connect your Kindle device with your PC and navigate to the directory where adb is installed on your computer. Once done, enter the following commands in a Command Prompt or Terminal window:
Note: A rooted Kindle is required for this step.
adb shell cd cache mkdir recovery cd / cp /sdcard/log /cache/recovery/ cp /sdcard/last_log /cache/recovery/ dd if=/sdcard/updaterecovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/by-name/recovery idme bootmode 0x5001 reboot
Step 4: Now from recovery, you will see the first option highlighted as “Install update.zip” from SD Card. Press Power button (OK).
Step 5: When installtion prompt appears, press the Power button again. The recovery is modded because it can’t be navigated through right now.
Step 6: Select Yes to proceed further.
Step 7: After the ROM is flashed, open up command prompt or terminal window, navigate to the location of the stock recovery and enter the following commands (do not reboot):
adb shell mount sdcard exit adb push/sbin/ dd if=/sbin/stockrecovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/by-name/recovery adb reboot
