Post [ROOT] [How To] Install Google Play Store On Amazon 7" Kindle Fire HD

(Root Users Only)
We All Know The Amazon Appstore Has A Huge Selection When It Comes To Music, Movies, And Books, The Same Cannot Be Said For Apps.
Despite The Fact That The Kindle Fire HD Is An Android Based Tablet It Doesnít Officially Have Access To The Google Play Store.
We Also Know We Can Sideload Apps But Itís Much Nicer To Have The Google Play Store App On Your Kindle Fire HD.

I'll Show You How To Install And Setup The Latest Version Of The Google Play Store.

Just Follow This Easy Step By Step Instructions

Step By Step Instructions:

- Step 1: First Download All Of The Following Files:
Account And Sync Settings-2.3.4.apk
Google Login Service-4.0.3-239410.apk
Google Play services-3.1.59 (736673-34) .apk
Google Play Store-4.1.10.apk
Google Services Framework-4.0.4-338691.apk
Vending.apk
ES File Explorer-3.0.5.apk - If You Don't Have Any File Explorer You Can Download One From The Amazon Appstore (I Reccommend Using ES File Explorer, It's The Better One).

- Step 2: Then Transfer All Of Them To The Kindle Fire HD.

- Step 3: Go To ES File Explorer, Go Into 'Tools' >'Root Explorer' >'Mount R/W' And Set Both To 'RW'.

- Step 4: Now You Can Just Install (In That Order):
Account And Sync Settings-2.3.4.apk
Google Services Framework-4.0.4-338691.apk
Google Login Service-4.0.3-239410.apk
Google Play services-3.1.59 (736673-34) .apk
Or You Can Copy Those Files To system/app Folder (Without The Google Play Services App, Intall That One).

You're Done!

Maybe I missed it... but what about the "Account And Sync Settings-2.3.4.apk" file? You never say when to install it.

Default Google Play Services

I keep getting the following error when trying to install the Google Play Services APK, it keeps kicking back an install error.

Can anyone help me get past this part?

Update - So I was able to install the Play Store, but now whenever I try to install an app, it automatically kicks back an error saying it can't retrieve information from server...
