Changing the Wallpaper on Amazon’s Kindle Fire

My Kindle Fire Lock Screen

My Kindle Fire Home Screen

I want to thank J.D. at kindlecooltricks, for this very nice app. It is very stable and works well. It does exactly what is says it will do.

Sometimes, on boot.  My Kindle Wallpaper Changer, will lag for a few seconds, but that really is not a problem. In spite of the recomended wallpaper sizes, that have been recomended, all of the ones that I use are sized at 640 X 480 pixels and work very will.

Instead of repeating all of J.D.’s instructions here. I am including a link to his website. Just load it into the browser on your Kindle Fire and go there. J.D.’s instructions are very detailed, and thorough, and include screenshots on each step in the process of setting up MyKindleWallpaper.apk on your Kindle Fire.

My Kindle Fire Lockscreen

This Screenshot was taken by my Kindle Fire, with a little help from the Andriod SDK version r16. Did you notice that the Wallpaper is not stock Amazon Kindle Fire Wallpaper.

Like I said, stick around and I will help you to also make your Kindle Fire, truly yours!

My Kindle Fire Homescreen, Landscape

This is my Homescreen, everything happens from here. You have to admit, that this looks a lot friendlier than Amazon’s Stock Kindle Fire Homescreen.

With this Launcher, there are 4 more pages like this available. They can be reached by a simple swipe of your finger, either left or right. And there is so much more available with an Android Launcher like this.

By the way. My Kindle Fire is absolutely stock. It has not been rooted, nor has the operating system been modified in any way. Everything that I have done with my Kindle Fire, is by software ie: Android Applications that I have found on the internet.

You can do anything that I have done. And I will tell you where to get everything that I have found.
