    Default Kindle Fire HD And 2nd Gen Kindle Fire Both Have Locked Bootloaders

    More lock down.

    "So, you were thinking about picking up a Kindle Fire HD, rooting it, and throwing a ROM on it for an impressive $200 tablet? Turns out that idea may not work out as well as we initially thought: both the Kindle Fire HD and the second gen KF have locked bootloaders. Bummer."

    Lots of devices with locked bootloaders, lots of very smart devs out there that will figure out how to get past it. Im not to worried that we wont get great ROMs for the device, just might take a little while longer

    Who cares? You really made a thread just to tell us that? Not everybody wants to root their devices, maybe we appreciate amazons UI. If I wanted to root, I would have purchased a nexus 7.

    I definitely don't mind. I plan to keep my Fire just the way it is.
