    Amazon: The Kindle Fire Will be Easily Rooted; Amazon Won't Interfere



    Apparently, the new $200 dollar Amazon 'Kindle Fire' Android tablet could potentially be a goldmine for folks willing to root. Jon Jenkins, director of Amazon's Silk browser project, made the statement,
    "It's going to get rooted, and what you do after you root it is up to you."
    Jenkins indicated that he didn't know if the bootloader was locked, and that Amazon wouldn't help hackers root the tablet; however, he also indicated that Amazon wouldn't hinder people from doing so if that's what they wanted to do. The PCMag article also pointed out that the Amazon Android tablet "has a USB port and mass storage mode, so you can also sideload Android APK program files, even without rooting it." This could be a valuable means to bypass the Amazon's Appstore and have community developers create other options.
