Let us know when you are ready for Google Play, we will post links to Google Play packages too.
Yesterday I found my Amazon App store had been silently updated, I'd already unticked the two boxes in the settings & had ran the OTA script, will check & see if I have the latest one.
Must say though the new UI of the app store is better, I still use it for some apps over Google Play.
I followed the tutorial step by step and completed. The only problem I met is at step 8. There is no guide to install Titanium Backup. I spent some time to google the apk to install Titanium Backup as I cannot find it form Amazon market and Google Play store was not ready yet. After I completed all the steps. I found the Titanium Backup apk just attached under the last step.
I am sorry, that is no longer need to complete the OTA Disable. Either way, it is the best Backup and Recovery software available, so if you have it installed all the better.
Just FYI, our new Software automates this process. Just download and install Kindle Fire First Aide and select Option 14 to disable OTA. As we find new devices, it will be automatically added to our software. Here is a link to the new software:

In this Noob Series, we will explore how to disable the Amazon OTA (Over The Air) System Updates. This small script
was written by our development staff. Our staff was very careful to disable all the OTA Services that Amazon can use to deploy updates. We have the script notes at the bottom for people interested in what actually is shut down. You may easily revert back and enable all services if desired, just download and execute the attached.
