Amazon Kindle Fire – How To Change Lock Slider Color

by November 20, 2011 14 comments

I switched the Amazon Kindle Fire Lock Slider applying a MetaMorph patch, instructions below will explain how to easily mod your Lock Slider color. Your Amazon Kindle Fire Needs to be ROOTED! Do not attempt to apply this if you are not, it simply won’t work!

Essentials Required:
– USB Cable
– Root Access (Click here for more info)
– MetaMorph (Can be downloaded from the Android Market Click here for the Market Install Tutorial
– MetaMorph LockSlider Green Style (.ZIP) – (DO NOT EXTRACT THIS!) Download via Droidpirate.com (17.5 kB) (28 times).

Instructions:
Step 1. You must have the MetaMorph application installed on your Kindle Fire from the Android Market place like shown below. Free version is fine but if you would like to show your support grab the donate version!

Step 2. Next connect your USB cable to your Kindle Fire and your Computer, enable it so you can transfer files between the two. On your computer open the SD-Card folder like shown below.

Step 3. Inside of the SD-Card of the Kindle, you need to create a new folder and it must be exactly formatted this way “AndroidThemes” this is where the MetaMorph (.zip) files are going to be stored, so the MetaMorph application knows where to look.

Step 4. Now if you didn’t download the file from above you need do so by clicking here, DO NOT EXTRACT IT, you are going to copy the .ZIP file to the “AndroidThemes” file you just created on your sd.

Step 5. Disconnect your Kindle device from your computer, unplug the USB cable and open up the MetaMorph app on your Kindle device. Choose “Unzip/Extract new theme“.

Step 6. Select the “KindleFireLock-DroidGreen.zip” file. (Press on it)

Choose “Close

Choose “Apply all!

Choose “Continue

Step 7. It may take a few minutes, but your device will reboot itself once it boots back up you will notice your lock screen has been switched to Droid Green. Enjoy

    Rooting the Kindle Fire will not allow you to stream Amazon Videos.

    that is why you root, make your changes, and then unroot. Then amazon video will work just fine.

    If your Kindle Fire is stuck @ the logo screen after attempting to root it, it is just stuck in fastboot mode. Follow the instructions on xda-developers by clicking the link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=20421225
