Do you use Hashcode's version or the Tablet UI version?
My special pet peeve with the Fire is the way it tends to lock up when using Netflix. I'm guessing that's a Netflix problem rather than a Fire problem, but I'm hoping it runs more smoothly under jelly bean.
I use Hashcode's. It feels more like the Nexus 7 and you really start to appreciate the phone UI after using it for awhile.
The stock ROM has issues that the unofficial ones don't have. That's because everything from the audio to the touchscreen drivers were rewritten. Amazon didn't implement them very well. A lot of the OEMs like Samsung and LG don't implement them correctly either. That's why we're up to 2.5 million installs of CyanogenMod on Android devices now.
