How To Install AICP 12.1 Android 7.1.2 Nougat ROM On Amazon 7″ Kindle Fire HD. Tablets don’t get a lot of love in the development community. They aren’t very popular in general, especially to average consumers. However, XDA Senior Member transi1 is releasing an unofficial Android Nougat build of AICP 2.1 for the Kindle Fire HD 7″. That tablet came out in 2012 and isn’t exactly the most powerful of devices, hence why it’s getting an Android Nougat build.
For those curious about AICP 12.1 Android 7.1.2 Nougat, it can be used to run new versions of Android on older hardware to great effect. The Kindle Fire HD 7 will certainly benefit from a light weight Android variant. Not only does it thrive on lower RAM, but the applications themselves work just fine on weaker processors too.
- This new AICP [Unofficial] 12.1 Android 7.1 Nougat firmware has to be installed on the Kindle Fire HD 7 – 2012 aka tate model only; if tried on other devices, it might get bricked [To check your device model: Go to Settings – About phone – model number]
- Make sure the device has more than 70 percent battery, or else there is a chance for smartphone getting temporarily bricked if the installation process is interrupted mid-way.
- Though installing custom ROM improve the device’s performance and UI experiences, it makes the company warranty void and they will no longer be liable to provide updates in future [users can restore warranty by flashing the device with stock-ROM].
