Thank you for your reply. I downloaded Root explorer.apk into my kindle from internet but I dont know hot to install it - how to run the .apk file. Web browser - downloader says that the file can not be opened. I am confused.......

Are others having this issue? Or did I miss a step?

I don't think they go over it in this thread, search around. Theres another file you need GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk and then I think you need a syncsettings app from store to actually trigger the google sync. Like I said, do a search on that apk and you should get some answers. My contacts are synched, I dont use calendar to confirm however.

I'm sure you followed the steps in the first place, mainly

"6. Change mount option from RO to RW (read-only to read-write)
Paste Vending.apk into the /system/app folder
"

Almost certain it never was. Sideloaded from elsewhere. You grab ES explorer from kindle store, then install root explorer.

Yes and that is a big problem for me because Amazon Market is not available in my country. I have Root explorer .apk but I can not install it because I can not grab ES from Amazon store. Is there any solution? Please help....

Open up your browser and fill in the location to your apk file in the address bar like so:
Code:
file:///mnt/sdcard/Download/Vending.apk
where "mnt/sdcard/Download/Vending.apk" is the path to the file you're trying to install.

Apps such as Facebook, Twitter, etc are missing from the Market. How do you get the full selection?
