I have an old 1st Gen Kindle Fire that I do not use often anymore. I shattered the screen a year or so ago, and it was too expensive to fix at the time. Parts are cheaper now so I ordered off Amazon and plan to replace the glass.
The OS on those, though... it sucks. I really don't like any aspect of it, and want to just wipe it out. Can I somehow format the disk and install something like Ubuntu Touch? I've looked around, but everything I find ends up being a lot of clicks through different forum posts to get all the necessary steps.
I'm rather new to Linux and just installed Ubuntu on my laptop about a month ago. I'm still learning my way around a bit. But it would make this otherwise useless tablet 100,000x better to have a decent OS that will actually give me some functionality.
Has anyone done this before? Will the hardware support it?
