    [HOW TO] Install the Android Market on your Kindle Fire







    Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. TabletRoms.com or myself will not be liable if your device gets damaged in the process.



    BriefMobile was kind enough to point out the steps necessary to install the Android Market on the Kindle Fire so here it is!


    Prerequisites
    • Root your Kindle Fire <--instructions
    • Download the following apks (You are on your own finding them, I’d rather not link them here)
      • GoogleServicesFramework.apk
      • Vending.apk (Latest Version 3.3.11)
    • Root Explorer App (or similar that lets you change ro/rw permissions)
    • Side Loading Apps activated on Kindle Fire

      • On the Kindle Fire Settings screen, go to “Device” and turn On “Allow Installation of Application From Unknown Sources”


    Instructions
    1. Transfer the .apk files to your Kindle Fire via PC / Mac (remember where you put them)
    2. Open Root Explorer App, and navigate to the transferred .apk files
    3. Select the GoogleServiceFramework.apk and install
    4. When complete, click “Done” and return to the file location for Vending.apk
    5. Long-press Vending.apk and select the “Move” option on pop-up menu
    6. Navigate to /system/app folder
    7. Change mount option from RO to RW (read-only to read-write)
    8. Paste Vending.apk into the /system/app folder
    9. Long-press Vending.apk and select “Permissions” from pop-up menu
    10. Change permissions to match all other apps in this folder (rw-r–r–)
    11. Reboot your Kindle Fire
    12. Once reboot is complete, select Market App and log-in as usual.
    13. Enjoy!

    You will most likely notice some familiar apps missing from the market, as this device is lacking certain hardware specifications. However, once custom ROMs start appearing for the Kindle Fire, it is a safe bet it will no longer be the case.
