It’s only been a couple days since the Kindle Fire shipped and it’s already half way to being an open Android tablet.
Yesterday we learned that the Kindle Fire was going to be easy to hack; Amazon had made the first steps easy to solve. Today I can report that, while the KF isn’t completely hacked, it is significantly more useful than before.
One industrious hacker has gotten an unofficial install of Google’s Android Market. He’s already installed a number of apps and noted that some can’t be installed due to hardware limitations.
The process is technically complicated and is not for the faint of heart. It’s also quite risky. You can find complete instructions at the link, but I can say that I won’t be trying this. IMO, this is more work than it is worth. I’m going to wait until there’s an easier way to add more features.
