How To Install Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich On Kindle FirePosted on the 30 December 2011 by Skateroren @ProgramsAlive
Before you continue, you will need to meet a few pre-requisites. Firstly, your Kindle Fire must be rooted. Secondly, you must install TWRP 2.0 – a touch-based custom recovery for the Kindle Fire. You can follow our guide on how to root the Kindle Fire and check out Liliputing’s guide for installing TWRP.
Step 1: Download Android 4.0.3 ICS Experimental Build [MediaFire]. Transfer it to the root of your Kindle Fire’s internal storage so you can flash it later.
Step 2: Shut down your Kindle Fire. Once it is completely turned off, tap the power button to turn it on. When you see the yellow triangle on the display, press and hold power button until you boot into TWRP.
Step 3: Take a backup from the backups section on TWRP. This will come handy later on if you wish to revert back to your current state.
Step 4: Wipe out everything from TWRP i.e. data factory reset, wipe cache and wipe Dalvik cache.
Step 5: Tap Install and select the file you transferred to your Kindle Fire in Step 1. Once selected, tap flash.
Step 6: From the main menu, tap reboot system.
If you followed the steps correctly, your Kindle Fire will now boot into an experimental build of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich based on CyanogenMod 9.
