I think I sent an email to Amazon but I never got a confirmation email or something like that, so I figured I'd ask the fine people here. Be warned: I don't really know what I'm talking about.
I bought 2 Kindle Fire HDs last week as part of that sale--one for myself (to replace paperwhite) the other as a gift for my mother--who has been wanting a tablet for a while. I'm perfectly happy with mine (just wanted a reader) my mother has been having some trouble with a few apps she'd wanted not running properly with the modified Android OS Amazon uses.
She wants to get the modern/normal Android OS on it, which can apparently be done through some installation utilities or by "rooting" it, whatever that means.
My question is this: if my mother does this, A) will it prevent her from returning the Kindle Fire HD (within the 30-day period, of course) if she decides she wants the bigger 8.9 version, and B) will she be able to re-install the Kindle version of Android if she decides she likes that version better after all?
Sorry if this is hard to understand. I really don't know anything about android or messing with tablets, as aside from maybe a grand total of 2 or 3 hours in my life playing with an iPad, I've never really dealt with mobile devices of any sort and am grossly ignorant of the terminology and tech.
