Complying with the AOSP agreement, Amazon has released the source code for Kindle Fire at their Source Code page the same day the tablets themselves started arriving in consumers’ hands. This means that we can expect to see some custom ROMs for the Kindle Fire over the next few weeks, and it will be interesting to see what various developers come up with for the Kindle Fire. Folks familiar with Android know that a source code release means the possibility of custom-built kernels, overclocked CPU’s, and general optimization from community developers.
This release will surely boost the ongoing development by Android dev community for Kindle Fire. On the other hand, Google has been fast enough to give access to ICS source as well recently, which would surely be leading a few ICE based custom ROMs for the device pretty soon.
