I just found this article online. This is perfect for anyone with a computer and a kindle fire they don't want to root. NOTE This is not just a guide on side loading apps.

Yeah, Bluestacks is definitely one way to go at it but still too cumbersome for most people. I've got a page where I have posted common apk files that people need and willing to add more on request. Just leave a comment on the page for an app that you need. http://androidcowboy.com/android-apk-files-download/

Do you have any Kindle friendly links to work with? I tried to download them directly, and of course mega being mega, wants you to download the desktop version of chrome to download. :banghead: (Darn you Mega!!!) I know a lot of people will download from their Kindles, so you know.

Appreciated the article, got as far as 'bluestacks' only to be told that my Windows needed 'SP2'. Not being massively computer literate this confused me. Does this mean in order for this to work i need to update my software from somewhere or am i going to have to shell out for a new laptop??

Sky Go Struggle on-going
I have followed the instructions on the original link and managed to get Sky + working on my kindle and Sky Go installed on the tablet. However, whenever i try to open a channel the same old 'device not supported' text comes up!?

I thought i was getting somewhere only to grind to a halt. Any ideas from the floor?

Blue stacks is great! I have Play Store installed, and it force closes every time I open it; however, I've the log-on services framework installed. Maybe a few other things. I use blue stacks to access my existing play store apps I paid for, back them up using ES File Explorer, and upload onto google drive. I haven't had a problem installing and using paid for play store apps; play store closes, but it only really needs to be installed. It never lets me get past the terms of service agreement before closing.

Anyone getting past that without rooting? That kinda messes with the stock apps--considering I need those to work, rooting will never happen for my kfhd8.9.

I'm talking about the version you use on a Windows or Mac computer. I was using a copy of Chrome for Android already.

I don't trust chainfire. Especially since I don't have a recovery.

Everything installs except vending.apk so I have no Play store. I am rooted. I don't understand because there is already a vending apk in system/apps but if you click that it won't install either. Writing over t with the new one just leads to not being able to install the new one, re-booting doesn't help. I am stuck.
