You are free to start another thread on developing for the fire, but right now, we don't have much information. (And I'll say one more thing, it's running Android but it's Amazon's custom android, so no adb is involved).
Actually I was speaking about the e-ink kindles
I was just suggesting that since we have tighter security controls we could take inspirations by android hacks and use apps written with the official KDK to gain root access.
