Sold
Kindle Fire - With Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich - Make me an offer!

I bought this new and have been playing around with it, its so much fun! It is in perfect Condition and because of the Gorilla Glass, not a scratch on it.

I put Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) on it and made it into a full fledged tablet. Its rooted and you can also put your custom roms on it pretty easy, or I can return it to pretty much stock and sell it to you that way, although I would rather leave the ICS on it.

I am selling it because the development of ICS is nearing an end because all the bugs are pretty much worked out, there are a few issues with hardware decoding of video (currently being worked on). The biggest issue was sound not working and not being able to tether the USB to a computer, but those issues are all working now.

I have had a great time with this little tablet (7") and have had cyanogenmod 7 on it (Gingerbread). With that OS, EVERYTHING works, netflix, most games and so on.

With Android 4.0.3 its super smooth and really intuitive. Netflix however does not work yet on it.

I have had a ball with this thing and would love to show you guys how to flash ROMS and Kernels.

So if anyone doesnt want to go to all the trouble to buy one, then root it, install TWRP and then flash the ROM, this little guy is all for you.

I would like to get 200 shipped out of it This should be fun, make me an offer!

Thanks for looking, Please no trades.

I know the NIB price, I bought this one new, I was just seeing how close to the 200 mark someone would be willing to pay for a complete tablet experience, not just an e-reader with amazons marketplace and a browser.

The Fire comes from amazon with its Proprietary software, I installed Android so I could use the android market, gmail and still sign in to the amazon android market place.

Thanks
