Default How do I get Google Play Store on my KFHD?

Just rooted two days ago or so, so how do I install Google Play? Sorry, a bit clueless.

* I'm running 7.2.3 by the way

1. Root your Kindle Fire HD
2. Downloaded and install the GoogleServicesFramework.apk
3. Download Vending.apk
4. Using a file explorer app on the Fire with superuser permissions AND the system file permissions set to Read-Write, move Vending.apk to /system/app.
5. Change the permissions of Vending.apk to User - Read/Write, Group - Read, Others - Read
6. Install Vending.apk
6.5 rebooted
7. The Android Market should show up in your Kindle Fire HD apps. Tap on it and follow the steps.
8. Download and install the Play.apk to upgrade the the android market to the current Play market.

When I follow your process, at the end when I open the play store, the app repeatedly crashes, no matter how many times i reboot...

I found out myself what i was doing wrong. I didnt move the apk files to the /system/app folder and installed them directly from the downloads folder, because i read that someone said it doesnt matter where you install them.. Also, I noticed that the gplay file is the most play store, and by installing the phonesky apk, it was downgrading my play store to the very first one, which was causing it to crash.

Thanks for the help though!
