I consider myself to be somewhat intelligent, mostly when it comes to being able to read, write, and search for things on the internet. I have searched these forums and others and only found two references to this question with no answers. Forgive me if my self inflated ego of being able to find answers online is misplaced.

When I try to install the Google services framework (googleservicesframework.apk) on my kindle fire I get the message "application not installed". What am I doing wrong? How do I install this? I am trying to install google apps, namely gmail. After I got the "application not installed" I did reset the device and install the gmail.apk but to no avail, the app would not even open.

I am running 6.2.2 and have recently rooted my kindle and have superuser access. I understand that root is not necessary to install google services framework but I did it nonetheless in hopes that it would help (which it has not).

I know others have had this problem, but I have not found any advice anywhere on this, please help!!! Thanks!

if you'r rooted and put the googleservicesframework.apk in /system/app then there is no need to install it (yes it will fail) - just restart the kf - you'll see it running ...

Thanks for the response! After pasting the googleservicesframework.apk to /system/app and restarting I do not see the application under "running applications", in fact I didnt even see it under "all applications". I know you said there was no need to install the app, but after I didnt see it running I tried to install it anyway then reset, it didnt help.
Its probably good to mention that ive tried this with multiple apks, ive read that there are different ones although I cant seem to tell which ones are different.
Any other advice??

This is the .apk I used on both my KF and my wife's KF. In fact I just installed it on hers last night. Hopefully it works for you.

Thank you so much! I had a link to an older apk that did not work correctly. With that apk and "Any Cut", I was able to create a shortcut to "Accounts and sync" to get my gmail contacts and mail syncing properly.

Hello,
the link you provided is not an APK file. Rather, it is a ZIP file.
