Re: [PLUG] $50 7" tablet

It's possible, most of the other Fire tablets have gotten Cyanogen at varying (but low) support levels, generally only unsupported builds. I wouldn't count on it, though, Amazon has been trying to lock out third party roms for a while, and on a loss leader like this, it'll be a major concern.

So sure, buy it if it's interesting as-is, but don't count on it getting AOSP/CMod.

In somewhat related info, I just bought a Kindle Fire HDX 9" and a Samsung Tab 2 10.1" on Swappa for 110$ and 120$ respectively, and both already have Cyanogenmod builds available, so don't get spellbound by the low price, there are competitors.

Amazon...  wow...  Ok, I don't care about FireOS but if Cyanogenmod or AOSP can go on here then I think I have to do it.
