Do you fancy trying out Jelly Bean, but you already have the amazing Amazon Kindle Fire and don't really want to fork over the cash to buy a new Google Nexus 7? No worries. The developer community has you covered. A developer over at XDA has developed an AOSP based Jelly Bean ROM for the device. It's still very beta and has quite a few niggling issues, but they are being worked on right now. Here's a quote with the details,
Be sure to follow the instructions fully before trying this out. We can't be responsible if you brick your device. Hit up the source link below for download links and instructions links to XDA.XDA member Hashcode just posted an AOSP based Jelly Bean ROM. This is a beta so there are some issues like the HD codecs (YouTube and Netflix). The good news is this will be fixed shortly as Texas Instruments is updating the libion code. Other oddities is the screen over rotates and the dev is having an issue turning on UMS. These are all issues that will be fixed shortly.
All you have to do is flash in recovery, wipe data/cache and reboot. You will have an issue connecting to WiFI so after you’ve flashed both the ROM/Gapps and rebooted, just adb shell su fix-mac.sh and you will be all set.
