    Ask Amazon To Get Rid Of Your Lock Screen Ads!

    i recently was having issues with my lock screen contently flickering . it got to the point i was starting to feel the heat rage up in me cause it just wouldn't stop .

    i tried a few XDA non-root things and that worked but then i was like "i wanna try this root" and bricked my kindle , so i had to side load the latest version from amazon and that fixed my brick issue , but now i couldn't use the XDA solution to stop my ads.

    so i contacted amazon and movies download movies at forum told them my screen lock screen was going hey-wire and flickering 3 to 4 times trying to load ads and wouldn't let me unlock with out issues . so they went ahead and removed the ads from my tablet for free with little to no issues

    i figured this would help a few people , frankly i wouldn't mind the ads if they where more targeted for my Adult self (like books or trailers maybe) ads seeing it's not set up as a child's tablet but for actually reading / movies kindle . the fact it keep telling me to play a child's game directed at 4-6 year olds was so irritated .

    Why are you watching at the lock screen, ? , you can pay a bit more to get no adds, or if your a cheap skate just don't register your fire, or just ignore them or as you did get Amazon to remove them( for afee) or for nothing
