Default CM11 + Latest GApps, Play Store Crashes

So i am at a bit of a problem here and i cant figure it out.

I have installed both CM11 from 04/24/14, and tried the 4/08/14 Experimental build, both with the latest GApps zip file for CM11 from
http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Google_Apps

The install seems to go fine, CM11 works, i can get wifi, connect to google account, gmail, internet, hangouts everything works..

Except Play Store...it crashes every time. Ive tried everything i can think of, those things include

Run the installed one from Gapps, it starts and i can see the initial disclaimer i have to accept then it crashes.
Download Google Play store apk and push it via ADB install, doesnt load.
Use GAppManager, the instant i select a version of GApps to install it crashes.
Try flashing an earlier version of GApps(For ICS) from KFFAide, doesnt work..
Go into Apps, find Google Play store that comes from the flashed GApps and clear its cache...
Ive tried flashing just CM11, booting it, then going back into TWRP and flashing GApps
Tried clearing dalvik/system and every other TWRP wipe except internal

Im really out of ideas...any help would be great nothing i do seems to do it...
I also tried flashing back to a version of 10.2 Experimental for KF HD but it just fails immediately when i try.

Try the GAPPS from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2397942 find which ones you want to use and then choose goo as the download place. Then get a slightly older Gapps. I'm using a set from 1-23-2014 and have had zero issues. They will update anyway so having today's 0 day Gapps is not a huge deal. If you want mini Gapps, here is the link http://goo.im/devs/paranoidandroid/r...der%20versions

I've been using the latest GApps ("stock" experience) from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2397942 and it works great. It will error out some apps the first time with a notification that you must update Google Play Services to continue. Sign in and update Google Play Services through the store and everything works like a champ.

A bonus of using the PA GApps package (if you want all those apps at all) is that they install to /system and don't use up as much /data space. Maybe not an issue for many, but every little bit helps right?

Keep in mind that the "stock" (i.e. Nexus-esque) package will remove the AOSP Browser, Messaging, and Keyboard. As long as you're good with Chrome, Hangouts, and Google Keyboard, this (again) saves you storage. If you prefer the AOSP apps, read the thread for how to keep them or install one of the other packages from the thread.

It turns out the issue is unrelated to Google apps, ANY application i use and try to download with will crash.

Try to grab an attachment from Gmail, crash
Try to download a file via Chrome, crash
Try to download via Play store, crash

I have no idea what the hell is causing this ive checked my Download and Downloader apps they are both running, ive tried restarting them, disabling them, and many other things...

At this point how do i return my Kindle to a "Stock" Kindle Fire HD as if i bought it from the store?

I may need to return it, im wondering if this is a hardware issue? Doesnt make sense though because everything else seems to work, i can go view internet stuff so the wifi isnt bad, and i can copy files to it via USB so the storage isnt bad...

Try flashing a slightly older KitKat Gapps http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2579123 If you want to go stock then use the system restore tool http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2011126 Use the stock USB cord.

Edit: Edited for link to 8.9 restore tool and further corrections.
