What Kindle Fire exclusive content will I lose?

What Kindle Fire exclusive content will I lose?

There are a few Kindle Fire apps and services that are exclusive to the Kindle Fire. When N2Aos is installed, Amazon will recognize your Kindle as an Android Tablet, and not as an Amazon Kindle Fire. This will cause the Kindle Fire exclusive features to be unavailable. However, the vast majority of your existing Kindle books and Kindle apps can be downloaded again on N2Aos for free. The exceptions are as follows:

1. Currently you will not be able to stream Amazon Prime Video using N2Aos, If you do not use the streaming feature, this will not be a concern for you.

2. Kindle Fire exclusive apps will not work on N2Aos. In your Amazon Kindle Library, these apps will usually have "(Kindle Tablet Edition)" or something similar added to the end of their title. If you own some of these, you can check in the Amazon App Store or in the Google Play Store to see if the apps are available for other Android devices. If an Android version is available, then you can purchase it, or if it is free, download it for no charge. Please note that all other apps that are NOT exclusive to the Kindle Fire may be downloaded to any Android device, and will work on N2Aos.

3. You will lose access to the Kindle Owners' Lending Library, as this is a Kindle exclusive. If you are currently reading a borrowed book, finish and return it before upgrading to N2Aos. (If you neglected to return the book before upgrading, you can manually return the book through Amazon.com's site, but you will not be able to finish reading it.) You will still be able to access your other books through the Kindle Reader for Android app.

4. The Immersion Reading feature of the Kindle Fire Generation 2, Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is not available for the Kindle Reader for Android app. Note that there are apps for Android for listening to Kindle eBooks which will give you similar features.

Most users find that the benefits of having a full Android tablet greatly outweigh the inconvenience of losing these few features. The information is provided so that you may make an informed decision on what is best for you.

If there are any other Kindle Fire exclusives that we did not mention here, please open a thread in our forums to let us know.

What does Unlimited OTA updates really mean?

What does Unlimited updates really mean

Here at N2A we offer unlimited Over The Air Updates for your purchased operating system. So for Example if you buy N2Aos Jellybean, you will receive an unlimited number of updates for the JellyBean operating system.

To give you a clear idea of how this will work, if google decided to stick with Jellybean for 18 months or more, any updates to JellyBean within that 18 months that we release would be be free to all existing users of Our JellyBean based N2Aos.

When Google decides to release major new version of their operating system, they signify this by giving it a completely new name. We class this as a major upgrade and is not included as a free update to users of previous versions.

When a new Operating system is released we don't just drop our existing customers like many companies do, we continue to support them on their existing operating system for as long as they need, but better than that we also offer them a 50% reduced cost upgrade from their current operating system to the new one.

While we'd love to be able to offer everything for free for ever more we're sure you understand that as a small company we can't afford to develop new software and support our existing customers without some form of income. We believe that the 50% discount to upgrade is the best way to enable us to support all our existing and future customers while managing to stay alive ourselves.

We trust that everyone finds this acceptable.

Can Amazon Kindle Updates affect my N2Aos?

Can Amazon Kindle Updates affect my N2Aos

Short Answer: No

Longer Answer: Since N2Aos completely wipes the Amazon OS from the Kindle, there is no possibility that an update released from Amazon could reach the system. No more than a Kindle update could interfere with your Android phone. You are safe now. :)
