Complete Kindle fire app for nook and other android devices
This will work on any android tablet or phone.
Do this from your device.
1) If you dont already have it download es file explorer
2Here is the dropbox link to the zip with the apks: Kindle fire app apks
3)Extract the folder or unzip it. Inside the zip you will find system apks and the amazon app store,amazon mp3 store,amzon kindle, and amazon instant video. Install all of the apks.
5) Install "com.amazon.kindle.otter-20075-2.75-65666d03259704bd-CDZvVy-164.apk" if you do it using your tablet it will just say launcher.
6) Now download the nook color app manager
and install it in order to add it to your nooks homescreen.(normal android devices are
skip this step.The silk browser is below.
If you would like amazon silk you need to be rooted (I dont recomend this because it will require you to root your tablet which will disable amazon instant video)
Download and install these two apps
and vodoo ota root keeper
download this zip silk
step 1) Go to root explorer and go to where you downloaded your zip to. This may be on your nook tablet /mnt/media/my files/my downloads and find the zip. unzip it or extract it to the same my downloads folder.
step 2) Then you will need to go to the apps folder in the extracted silk folder and long press one of the apks. a popup menu will apear. click copy. The click the back button or the ... (it may varie) and work your way back to the mnt directory. Click on the system folder now instead of media. Now select the app folder.( Be very careful not to alter your system files it will be permanent. However there is a fix. just pm or email me if something goes wrong.) On the top right of the screen there should be a white or greyish button. It should say Mount R/W. Click that and you will see it change to Mount R/O. On the bottom of the screen click paste.
step 3) Do this to each apk inside the silk/system/apps folder. (There are only three of them)
step 4) Go back to the extracted silk folder folder and instead of the app folder click the lib folder. Do the same process for each of the four libs. However instead of pasting them inside of the system/appfolder paste them into the system/lib folder.
step 5)When your done exit out of root explorer and go back to es file explorer. In there you go back to the silk folder and in the app folder install the three apks. Next, reboot your device.
step 6) You arent done go to the launcher apk and silk should be working and there is a noticable speed difference from the stock nt browser.
FINAL STEP) Since you have a rooted device amazon instant video will not allow you to playback vdeo.Thats where vodoo ota root keeper come in to help. You can easily unroot your device and restore the root quickly. unroot it when you want to watch a video and restore the root when you do need it which should not be very often. Now you are completely done. Go to each of the shortcuts on your kindlefire homescreen and sign into your amazon account.

The kindle fire is basically a launcher and then amazon kindle apk, amazon app store apk, framework, amazon mp3, amazon INSTANT VIDEO apk, and the silk browser anlso known as com.cloud.9.apk, and the silk browser's libs.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLE TRYING TO HAVE THE SILK BROWSER AND AMAZON INSANT VIDEO RUNNING AT THE SAME TIME?
To place the libs in the system/lib folder you will need to root your tablet and use root explorer and install the com.cloud.9.apk(silk browser).
This contridicts the amazon prime instant video because you will need to be unrooted in order playback video otherwise you will get an error message "your device is no longer configured properly..bla.bla.blaa"
However the fix for this would be to either someone make a signed zip with the silk browsers libs and apk that you could install using cwm (boot from sd card) or us voodo ota root keeper. That is suppose to let you backup your root on the sd card and temporarily unroot your device. I HAVE TRIED TO UNROOT AND THE AMAZON INSTANT VIDEO STILL DIDNT WORK, SO I HAD TO DO THE ACCLAIM UPDATE ZIP TO RESTORE BACK TO STOCK(THE ULTIMATE UNROOT). Some people got theirs to unroot so it may varie. I CHOSE Amazon Instant video over the silk browser bexause I had found someones kindle fire setup apk(or whatever its called find it) and it said welcome to kindle fire and when I made my amazon account I still got the one month free of prime. Its more valuable than silk untill the trial ends and i could just do the regristration apk again. I will post a list of all the apks you will need and a download link for the folder including all of the apks and files.
Note- Do not install the amazon silk com.cloud.9.apk until you use the rootexplorer to move the four libs to the system/lib folder and the 3 apks to the system/apps directory. Make sure you mount and then unmount when finished. Delete those files if you will do a system reset or something goes wrong.
Also for those who really could care less about amazon instant video you could still use the setup/regristation app (please post the name or apk) to get the free month of prime and use the nooks web browser to go to amazon.com and go to instant video for streaming through the web browser. Then you could still have your root. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT WITH THE AMAZON INSTANT VIDEO APP YOU WILL NEED TO UNROOT HOWEVER IF YOU KEEP THE ROOT YOU CAN STILL STREAM IN THE BROWSER BY SIGNING IN?
If you dont have problems with the unrooting then after you move silks libs ana apks to the system/lib and system/app directory then just unroot and you can install the instant video apk and have the whole kindle fire interface.
THE REASON WHY I SAID ITS A KINDLE FIRE APP WAS THAT THE LAUNCHER APK IS THE HOME SCREEN OF THE KINDLE FIRE AND FROM THERE THE NEWSTAND! BOOKS! MUSIC! VIDEO! APPS! AND WEB ARE ALL SHORTCUTS TO THE APKS. THATS IT AND IF YOU USE THE NOOK COLOR APP MANAGER YOU COULD ADD THE APP CALLED LAUNCHER TO THE HOMESCREEN.JUST PRESS THE LAUNCHER APP(THE ICON IS A PICTURE OF A KINDLE FIRE WITH THE ORANGE KINDLE LOGO ACROSS IT)And youll have a kindle fire on your nook tablet no dual booting or flashing needed.
