Yeah, OK, the Kindle Fire (first model, US version, imported to Germany back then) is a goner. It’s just too gorram slow and annoying, even after flashing CM – and flashing back to stock will make it a US device again, with little use outside the USA (it doesn’t work with most German Amazon Cloud services except books).
So Amazon offers me a Fire HD with 8 GB for 80 bucks (with all “special offers” and Prime membership discounts). As I have been forced into Amazon Prime Video lately (I wouldn’t have booked it, but now I got it), it would be nice to have a real “FireOS” device to gain from it. … Problem: This latest Fire HD does NOT have HDMI Out – so la-di-da, I certainly wouldn’t want to watch Prime Video on 7”.
Instead, now I’m getting a refurbished older model Fire HD with 16 GB and HDMI Out for 90 bucks – straight from Amazon, with all (refurb) warranty and stuff. I assume that once I lose interest in FireOS, that should be CM-able, too.
headscratch I hope that this is the right way to go. ;-)
Here’s a new glimpse at my ongoing series based on 80’s movies. A flying DeLorean, with Marty McFly and Doc Brown from “Back To The Future” ;-) / Simpsonized by ADN
