It's this normal?

Yes thats normal because as I stated before, Google Play services is not functioning on the new KFHD7 2013 model yet. So any actual Gapp (Google Hangouts, google books, etc.) will not function. Only self running apps like the XDA app from the Play Store will work.

@cruzersteve some apps do keep working, others do not. Even on the apps that seem to keep working, errors keep randomly popping up.
@LinearEquation... I know gapps won't work, I'm not referring to them. Like my screen shot showed, Living Social and Groupon don't work. Those are just the only two I can think of now, but there are others.

Exclamation Download Manager

So i rooted my kindle, and proceeded to start hacking up the system. i hid my softkeybar in lieu of pie controls, and replaced the stock keyboard with thumb keyboard. all of this worked swimmingly until i tried to install the google play services. i backed up my download manager via titanium and installed the edited ones via another post on this forum. Now the play store does not work, nor does any other web interface for download (ie browser amazon app store etc)

Can someone please pull and upload

/system/app/DownloadProvider.apk and
/system/app/DownloadProviderUi.apk

or direct me to a link where i may download these files? Until i have them my kindle is pretty worthless

Default Custom roms for 2013 KFHD7 ver 11.3

Hi everyone! I've been scouring as many sources as I can looking for news of Cyanogenmod for the 2013 Kindle Fire HD 7" (ver. 11.3) and I can't find anything. I was just now able to root it, at least. Anybody heard anything? Point me in the right direction? I got this thing for Christmas and it's sitting there next to my Nexus 5 feeling bad for itself. I like the hardware, but that Amazon OS is *brutal*.

Rooting is quite easy, and there is a script in the forums. There are no Rom capabilities yet as no one has found an exploit to unlock the boot loader yet.
