Tutorial Working [amazon appstore apk] [amzon mp3 apk] [amazon kindle apk]

Edit 1/19/14: Hashcode has released a new build that has apparently fixed the issue with the amazon apks.
His newest build (as of today) is here for KFHD7 2012 http://goo.im/devs/Hashcode/tate/cm1...ICIAL-tate.zip
And here for KFHD 8.9 2012 http://goo.im/devs/Hashcode/jem/cm11...FICIAL-jem.zip
I encourage all to try this build (or the newest one) first. I'll still leave these apks here just in case for the mean time.

editing the build.prop is working,too. At least with the amazon kindle apk (that's what I've tried).

go to
/system/build.prop

rename
ro.product.manufacturer=amazon

to e.g.
ro.product.manufacturer=UrChoice

Are you saying that making those changes would allow us to use the most recent version of the Kindle application from the Google Play store?

Do you need updated Kindle Fire HD drivers to access your device in ADB/Fastboot mode? Check here

Be careful editing prop builds, It can backfire. Make a backup if you do.

Yes, at least for my updated kindle app, that wasn´t working before editing the build.prop.

Mistaz: Thanks: Do you have a favorite device to rename the Kindle to? Galaxy? or do you have a rename that works?

Mistaz: Thanks: Pardon the dumb questions -
I thought the name was critical to the tablet's function and had to be some officially registered tablet name.
I have never fooled with the build prop. Guess, I will have to look at the modified links.

I purchased some apps on the Amazon app store but I can't not get them to work on my Kindle when I try to run them on my Kindle Fire HD 7, I re-download the apps from the Amazon app store but they say not compatible with the device, is there a fix for this?

I'm running CyanogenMod 11 btw
