111227-gtabics

Presumaby, the same issue must be affecting the port of Ice Cream Sandwich to the original 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. That shipped with Android 2.2 Froyo last year. The assumption is the elimination (or shrinkage) of TouchWiz would enable ICS to get onto both devices a little more easiliy. Samsung isn't guaranteeing an ICS port to the SGS and Gtab, so you might have more luck waiting for an unofficial port via the folks at XDA or elsewhere on the web.

Silent OTA Kindle Fire Update Breaks Root

kfire_021

It was reported at XDA-Developers forum yesterday that the OTA (OTA=Over-The-Air) update for the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet to its 6.2.1 version of firmware has killed its rooting procedure, a so called SuperOneClick. It's worth mentioning that rooting in itself is not the real target for all those tinkerers at XDA-Developers and elsewhere. It's just a tool that facilitates running alternative firmware on the Fire, namely CyanogenMod 7 and coming CyanogenMod 9 (based on Android Open Source Project for Ice Cream Sandwich). It improves handling the device in its sideloading mode, and, conversely, sideloading some system apps might take rooting and superuser privileges essential.
