Hi all,
I'm 100% new to rooting and just want something I hope is simple to do.

I would like to be able to use google play store/services on my Kindle Fire HD 8.9 (8.4.6).

I've seen a lot of threads here that go over rooting and installing a 2nd boot loader and other custom roms. However, I'm curious to know if its possible to just do this with only rooting and without the need of a 2nd boot loader or a custom rom.

Please let me know if this is possible and how I could do it.

No longer need help. Just decided to go with a full root/custom rom. Up and running KK4.4

I used this video. It's a bit fast and not very detailed. However, in the description he gives a web address for step by step instructions with pics. I recommend this for any noob out there.
