This module is obsolete; also would not work on 4.5.2. Nor will native TWRP as the bootloader remains locked with no available path to unlock. Best option is to install Safestrap v4
(a psudo twrp emulator) followed by the HDX Safestrap (not generic) versions for Nexus v4
. These get flashed to the stock slot overwriting FireOS. Recommend not attempting to create/populate secondary slots due to unresolved issues. Be sure to backup the stock slot from within Safestrap before overwriting stock. Leave a copy on device until the new rom is confirmed working as there is no way to externally connect to Safestrap. Everything you need must be placed on the device prior to entering SS recovery. You will find suitable gapps packages in the rom OPs. Follow instructions carefully to insure favorable outcomes. Caution: Never preform a native (Amazon) factory reset once Safestrap is installed as your device will brick with no ability to recover. Ask further questions as needed.
All the information you need is in the HDX development forum
Edit: Cramming gapps in FireOS is a poor option as Amazon and Google frameworks do not happily coexist. You'll see threads suggesting this is possible...and it is. But problems await, especially when one or the other updates which increasingly common on the Google side as apps depend on more recent versions of Google Play Services. If you go this route you'll want to block auto-updates. Or just save yourself the hassle and install a different rom.
