The Amazon Kindle Fire is the first Android tablet to support Amazon’s Instant Video streaming service. Users can purchase or rent TV shows or movies from Amazon and stream them over the internet or download them to the tablet for offline viewing.
But the service only works in the US and only on tablets that haven’t been rooted.
Folks that have rooted the Kindle Fire have already figured out that they can temporarily unroot it using the free OTA RootKeeper app. Now there’s also an app that lets users outside of the US stream Amazon Instant Video on a Kindle Fire.
The Amazon Kindle Fire may not look like your average Android tablet thanks to its highly modified user interface. But under the hood it’s running a tweaked version of Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and it turns out to be a fairly easy tablet to root.
Rooting allows you to access system settings that might not otherwise be available and install third party apps that can access those settings. For instance, some apps use root access to take adjust your CPU speed, backup your apps, data, and settings, or explore the complete file system on your Android device.
You’ll also need to root your device if you plan to replace the default software with a custom ROM such as CyanogenMod.
There’s at least one good reason not to root the tablet is because Amazon Instant Video streaming will not work on a rooted device. Fortunately you can unroot the tablet with one click if you want to remove root privileges and regain Instant Video privileges. You can find the details below.
Fortunately you also don’t need to root the Amazon Kindle Fire if all you want to do is install apps that aren’t available from the Amazon Appstore. For that, all you have to do is open the Settings menu and select the option that lets you install apps from unknown sources.
The Kindle Fire has the native ability to read word documents. There are four easy methods to transfer word documents to your Kindle Fire.
Transfer Doc to Kindle Fire via USB
If you have the Kindle Fire local to your PC, just plug it into your USB Drive and drag/drop the Word document to your Kindle Fire through File explorer. Put the document in your “Docs” folder.
If you have books or documents in the PDF format, maybe from an online collection or from work, there is a really easy way to convert these so that you can read PDF files on your Kindle (versions 1 and 2). They will appear on your book menu and can be read just like any other Kindle ebook.
The Amazon Kindle 3 will read PDF’s, but none of the previous version will. For these older versions PDF’s must be converted (see below). The Kindle definitely has the clearest screen and is currently the closest to actually reading a book. If you haven’t already got one, it’s worth getting a Kindle and converting your PDF files.
