When we talk about android tablets We see that there is a lot of competition in the market but few have very cutting-edge hardware at a competent price. In this regard, Amazon tablets have enviable hardware at an almost ridiculous price, but they don’t run native Android.

Amazon provides its tablets with Fire OS, a highly modified version of Android in which there are a lot of restrictions so that users cannot easily play with them and change the software that they incorporate from the factory. The Kindle Fire HDX are two very powerful devices, the 7-inch one costs around 229 euros and the 8.9-inch one reaches up to 379 euros, but its hardware is magnificent.

Developers are constantly looking for alternatives to make their own and looking for ways to replace Fire OS with custom ROMs and until now the only method to do so was to bypass the locked bootloader with Safestrap but the latest tool that has been revealed on the XDA Forums allows unlocking the bootloader of these two tablets.

Keep in mind that both tablets run a Snapdragon 800 with 2GB of RAM (very cutting-edge hardware) and the Fire OS is severely limited. Fire OS users can’t use Google Play to install apps and have to switch to a different version of Android to get the most out of this tablet. From now on it will be much more easy to install other kernels with this new tool. If you want to use this tool you must have hardware between version 3.1.0 or 3.2.4, if the version is higher you must downgrade.
