I have previously provided you with a number of Kindle Fire guides, including a guide on rooting Kindle Fire, installing CyanogenMod 7 On Kindle Fire, installation of Ice Cream Sandwich ROM On Kindle Fire and more. While tweaking around with Kindle Fire can be a lot of fun, sometimes one may simply wish to restore the stock Kindle interface. The below guide will walk you through he process of restoring the stock interface of your Kindle tablet. You can follow the steps given below, or watch the given video showing the process, (courtesy “Jeff Benjamin” from Kindle Fire Wire).
