Take your Kindle Fire and put Android Jelly Bean 4.2.1 on it

This is a nice mod. Have a old Kindle Fire, well don`t retire it, put Jelly Bean on it. XDA developer Hashcode will show you how to do it.
Liliputing reports:

"Amazon may not be selling first-generation Kindle Fire tablets anymore (or offering significant software updates for them), but that doesn’t mean you can’t teach an old tablet new tricks. Developer Hashcode has released a custom ROM for the Kindle Fire that lets you run Google Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on Amazon’s first tablet.

In other words, you can practically turn an old Kindle Fire into a Google Nexus 7, complete with support for HD video playback, the Google Play Store, and much more."

very nice mod, and apparently Android Jelly Bean runs fine on the older Kindle Fire.
