    Running CM7 here. It works great and looks great with an ics theme sitting on top of it.

    The new kernel is coming along nicely for CM9/ICS, currently HD video is working but there are some other bugs that need to be worked out. You can check it out HERE.

    Just to inject my two cents the stock ROM isn't bad if you like the free cloud storage for all of your music, books, and apps. And it does what I expected the Fire to do.
    I suppose CM7/9 gives it that "cool factor" though.

    I didn't mind it. The deal breaker for me to switch was Android market and Swype. there was a lot of good things about the stock ROM but not enough to keep it

    You do know that you can install the market on rooted stock right?

    Yea, Ithought about it, but I was already using the go launcher and by the time you root it you can be running CM7 in 10 minutes. If I used amazon's video or online services I would have thought twice but I use it primarily for web browsing and games. That's why I wanted the swype so bad. Punching out letters one key at a time was killing me.

    I noticed on my KF after I rooted and installed vending.apk with gapps and framework, process market kept crashing. Flashed to cm9 and haven't had any issues so far.

    I had that problem with cm9 after I didnt wipe cahe when I flashed it. I settled on the CM7 because of netflix playback support but the CM9 is NICE. I'm hoping CM9 gets polished up here soon cause the Acer Iconia is calling my name already and I dont need to be buying toys right now.

    I've been running CM9 Energy ROM for quite a while, but I may have to check aokp out for this device. ;)

    Are you using a different tablets ID on the google play market, or does it ID as a Kindle Fire and download apps for it?

    I just fear going that far into it, and Amazon black list the KF on play like carries have with some apps and phones.

    Just finished watching 2 movies on netflix at work with this ROM. Nice...just nice. If it stays stable I think I've done my final flash.

    im using eyecandy 4.04 right now. havent ventured off to jellybean land yet. another rom i loved was hellfire for ics. the others just really didnt appeal to me as much as these two.

    The CM10 port with SG7 enhancements is the best JB rom out there right now IMHO. Check the sticky for the link. Runs really smooth and I haven't had any issues at all.

    That's the best thing....just download both and flash both. LOL. Just keep a backup in case you decide to go back. I'm sure Hellfire is good....the GB and ICS versions were good. But the one I mentioned just has not given me much reason to switch to anything else.
