I was wondering if it would be possible to run a vanilla Android Lollipop build on Amazon Fire phone. Google won't support it by default, but is there a patched version of the Lollipop ROM that could be used to run Android on it?

  • Nope, I don't think so because over Amazon Fire phone are working over their own version of Android based ROMs, not the Android ROMs. I don't think that there are chances you can go past ! – Peter Carlos Nov 28 '14 at 7:26
  • But aren't there any patched ROMs like the Cyangen Mod that can work with it? – nutsiepully Nov 28 '14 at 7:35
  • I am not sure on this which is the reason why I have posted my answer over the comments. Maybe we should wait a bit more while for other member to confirm this one out as I am afraid but I haven't tried doing anything like that before! :( – Peter Carlos Nov 28 '14 at 7:40
  • Thanks a lot for your response. Yes, given the current fire phone offer, it'd be great to get hands on the hardware which is pretty good. Let's wait. – nutsiepully Nov 28 '14 at 7:42

For everyone who has dreamed about Android on the Fire phone: It is possible. You can install CM11 (Android KitKat 4.4.X) on your device. The procedure is described here on XDA: [ROM][STABLE] CM-11 for Safestrap v4 2015/08/10

There are some issues and bugs, but if you are interested in it, then go for it ;)

Fresh Installation

  1. From Safestrap(the recovery you have to install), go into Wipe Menu and Swipe to perform a factory reset.

  2. Flash the ROM File

  3. Flash PA Gapps Modular PICO
  4. Flash the latest SuperSU package if you want root
  5. Reboot
  6. Enjoy!
