Default [Q]How to successfully add Google apps and not get error messages?

So following a tutorial by Android Cowboy, I got some Google apps to work (except youtube). Unfortunately, messages will come up saying "google service frameworks has stopped working", or process.gapps.something has stopped working". How do I stop these from showing up? They are quite annoying.

I found the easiest way to get this working was to backup the same apps from my phone, galaxy nexus, using titanium backup and then restoring them to the kindle hdx. This does require root though. But this got my google services all working and as long as I don't try to download anything from the play store then I can search the site just fine.
Just remember to immediately turn off auto updates in the play store and stop any updates that have already tried to start.

Interesting approach!

How did you get the playstore on your hdx?

His HDX is rooted, so after installing SafeStrap (a recovery program), he flashed the gapps.

I would do anything to get rid of these error messages. Does rooting accomplish this? I am hesitant to root because all I really want is google apps working flawlessly and I don't want to risk the root process (scared of losing warranty and bricking).

Right now you can't get both Amazon and Google working together. People are working on that.

If you want Google, you have to rid all of Amazon stuff (or enough of it so it doesn't interfere w/ Google stuff).

Remember, you can always load up factory image, which would essentially unroot your device, and voila, good for returns.

I'm not rooted. I just got my HDX, so I don't won't to screw it up straight out of the box by doing something wrong with rooting. I guess I'll just wait for someone to say something that doesn't include rooting.
