You can't. Get your money back from the seller.


Moved to the Kindle Fire forum.

Try and get your money back to begin with. If you can't do that, XDA has guides to put CyanogenMod on it, but there's still a lot of work that needs to be done, but it should be usable.

Or check out N2Aos.com - for $20 it becomes an easy task to turn the device into a functioning Android 4.2.2.

Every other option ends up with the KF being recycled. Its a shame, but that appears to be our only choice.

I also assume that there was no identifying information in the Contacts app or the email app. Does the KF have Amazon Drive, Google Drive, Box or Dropbox installed? If so, that might be a way to get a message back to the owner.

OTH, if there was a logon password, none of that would be accessible.

(My KF running N2Aos does have a contact email on the logon screen.)
