I have a first-generation Kindle Fire and a RPi. The Kindle Fire screen has a LVDS interface. The Kindle Fire runs a modified version of an Android OS.
As background, I have moderate experience in software graphics rendering, but practically no hardware experience.
Here are the steps I'm envisioning I would need to take to use the Kindle screen:
- Obtain a power source for both components
- Obtain an adapter for HDMI to LVDS interfaces
- "Rip" the display drivers from the Kindle operating system (I don't know if this is entirely legal)
- Apply the graphics drivers to whatever RPi OS I'm using
Am I missing any steps? Would I need to apply the drivers at the kernel level or at an operational level?
