May I suggest this as a sticky ?

About a month ago I came across a company called N2Aos. They will convert your kindle fire to a pure android tablet using a modified version of CyanogenMod 10.1. They will even do the conversion remotely at no extra charge. I had them do the conversion on my kfhd 8.9. Twenty dollars and twenty minutes later, I drove away in a newly renovated jelly bean tablet and never looked back. I gave my Nexus 7 to my wife. This is the Nexus 7 on steroids. Did I mention I like it?

One caveat, however. Because of the way the kindles report rotation, some launchers will not work correctly in landscape. The launcher they provide, Trebuchet, is coded to read the kindles correctly. There are others also. Trebuchet is emminently servicable.
