Instead of asking for all volunteer developers, why not try paying them?

Define a KickStarter.com project to replace this Amazon {censored} with something 100% open source (kTizen or whatever).
**AND** do not do it the way the Chinese do, make the sources available.
The K5 hacking wiki shows that yifanlu strongly suggested that "somebody" put android OS on the kindle, quite some time ago.

For a starter, perhaps we could just start with a 5.3.0 image and strip all all proprietary stuff. I have working touchscreen and eink code (the "geekmaster signature capture" script). We could get USB networking up first, then a SIMPLE GUI up, and go from their.

I like development that progresses with "baby steps". Not only do you get quick (almost interactive) feedback, but you can actually share all those little milestones without a massive interdependent "all or nothing" framework in-progress for aeons, with few who understand it...
