If you have an original Amazon Kindle Fire that you want to update, an XDA member named "Hashcode" has the answer in a set of written instructions that will install Android 4.2.1 on your tablet with almost all of the features intact; some of the features won't work like the microphone, the Swype keyboard andmulti-user support, but YouTube and Netflix can still entertain you...

Is it me or the kindle fire never update their device? If so how can this compete with nexus 7? Lol

Original kindle fire came waaaaaaaay before the nexus 7, that's not what the kindle fire was competing against. In fact, the kindle fire was the first (popular) 7 inch tablet for android, so essentially this started the class of inexpensive 7 inchers. Amazon released the kindle fire HD to compete with the nexus 7, not this

Phonearena, the developer's name is HASHCODE not hashtag. And he is a very well-known developer on xda so you'd better correct the article.
