When Amazon updated to 6.3 my Kindle Fire had to be rooted again. This time, although I have the Google Play Store app, when I launch it, the following message appears: "You must add an account to the device to continue. Do you want to add one now?" When either Yes or No is selected, the app force closes.
Tried unrooting and re-rooting, rebooting, but nothing works.
Hope someone out there can help, please.

Install GoogleServicesFramework.apk and this should stop happening. You can extract it from the GB (GingerBread) GoogleApps zip file. I always put that .apk into /system/app, but that may not be necessary (not sure on that). Just try installing the gsf apk and see if it works -- I personally would also reinstall the market at this point (Vending.apk). If this doesn't work, you will probably have to get into adb and push the .apks to /system/app while in recovery. Then, you can work your way to them with a file explorer that can get into root (ES File Explorer works) and install both .apks by simply tapping them.

This worked!! I have a different problem now where my Kindle cannot connect to the Tootle server.
The error response is that my phone is not provisioned for data services.

Any suggestions?

Thanks again.

It seems to have been a server problem. I was able to log in and use Google Play Store.

Many many thanks for your help, tedr108!!

UPDATE - After I tried to download an app, I received the following message: "The application Google Play Store (process com.android.vending) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." and force closes.

I tried rebooting as well as uninstalling/reinstalling the Play Store, but no change.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Me too! I thinks it's a GoogleServicesFramework.apk version issue.
Can anyone advise what gapps version to use?
