i did it- working great with 6D.
thanks for the idea general direction.
kindle fire HDX has nice resolution for the price.
Glad it works. Sounds like the architecture on the HDX is a bit different. I'm pretty sure I was unable to get EOS Remote to work after sideloading until I rooted it. But I don't recall for sure.
I hate that Amazon put those restrictions on it, but agreed: The Kindles have some great features for the price.

I have a Canon 6D and a Kindle Fire - I would love to be able to shoot and tether to the kindle (eyes are not what they once were) - could you email me what you mean about "root it"? Thanks!

I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Y with Android 2.3.6 to use EOS Remote app with my Canon 6D. The phone was not compatible, a fact confirmed by e-mail from Samsung. What would be the least expensive phone to buy to suit my requirements? Also, since I don't actually need it as a phone, would it communicate with the camera via Wi-Fi without a SIM card?
