I can't use google play store as default appstore, can I? I mean I really want it to open app links from within the applications but I couldn't get it doing it. Everything is installed and working nicely but can't make it the default external market links app

Did you use our ICS Google Play Store App? If you open Google Play Store, go into Settings, what version is your Google Play Store?

Did you complete this step?

Play Step 16 Finally, to eliminate Amazon from intercepting any Market requests, thus allowing Google Play to be the default Market. Using ES File Explorer move /system/app/MarketIntentProxy.apk to /sdcard/download - Reboot the Kindle

it was 3.10.10 before following these steps but now that you warned I realize it's 3.5.16. I don't understand. I'll install 10.10 again.

yes I moved it to another folder long ago...

edit: when i use the 3.8.17 here it updates to 3.8.17 but when I use the phonesky it says 3.5.16
edit #2: ok I upgraded it to 3.10.10 and everything works including play store as the default. thanks...

I'm getting "Sorry, test failed. This feature cannot run on your phone" when trying to check the "Root Explorer" box in ES File explorer.

sounds like you lost Root.

ES File Explorer calls to the Superuser.apk when you click on the Root Options.

Are you sure you have Root? Are you running the latest version of ES File Explorer?

I had to manually allow ES in superuser. But I'll try running the apk you provided.
IDK how I could have lost root, seeing as I tried doing this moments after successfully rooting.

fearwillkeepus,

By the way, I like your Avatar. Yeah, I suspect you are using an older version of ES File Explorer since that is a known bug.

If not, download our Root Checker Basic utility to test both the Superuser.apk and the su binary. Respond with your

results.

I had Play Store working before and I rooted my Kindle Fire HD 8.9".

What happened was my 4 year old niece tried using Kindle but she didn't know the pin so she just pressed and held some buttons. I think it was power button. After that Kindle took very long to start, asked me to login into Amazon again and all apps were gone. I think she factory reset it. The root stayed.

Does this method make it persistent or will I have to redo everything if it were to happen again? Maybe there could be something automated to get me back to where I am now with backing up and restoring or something.
