Default [Q] Amazon App store Crashing

Good Evening All

I am after a bit of help/advice

Ok, I have a Kindle fire HD 7inch

I have [11/15] BETA CM10.2 + 3.0.50+ KERNEL installed and gapps-jb-20130813-signed installed

I have no issues using any of the google apps all happy with that.

The issue i have is that when i download Amazon app store it downloads ok, it installs ok

But when i go to run the App it crashes every time no matter what

I have installed via email, downloaded from amazon, sideloaded, copied from computer to tablet via ES file explore
installed from drop box, all instales looked like they installed ok.

i have tried deleting the cache still no joy, i have deleted the KFHD from amazon still no joy

i can log into my amazon account via the WWWeb so my account works

I was wondering if i had missed somthing out or have not installed somthing i should have

thank you in advance

Paul

Having the same issue. Tried redownloading and that didn't help. Ended up browsing for an older version and that did work. Just don't update it when prompted or back to force close you go.

Seems to work fine on my S4,just not on Cm 10.2 for some reason.

Try downloading it from Amazon while on your tablet http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/get/android If it does not work then I can upload the official Amazon APK I am using which is not the super new one. I have a habit about waiting to see how an updated app gets reviewed before updating and using Titanium to back up first just in case the update messes the app up.

This seems to be an issue for everyone across the board using cyanogenmod. Do any devs know what's going on here? I currently can no longer get any version of the Amazon store back on mine, new or old. I took the version 7 update when I was prompted and it, of course, doesn't work. Well, I didn't have a backup of version 5 anywhere so I grabbed an apk of 5, tried to install that back, and it force closes as well. Sucks bad considering a few of the games I have installed require the Amazon store to run even if you've linked them to Google Play.

I wiped the old data and updated to the new Amazon App and it FC. Flashed my nandroid with the previous version and no issues. This is not the first time the Amazon APK has gone haywire. I don't think it has anything to do with CM.

I downloaded the new Amazon APK and it does FC. Flashed a nandrod and have the last version and it works just fine. So I would remove the new Amazon APK and use SD maid or Titanium to wipe any old data too. Then you can try installing last version Amazon APK I uploaded to my drop box. This should fix the force closing issue. Make sure to reboot after installing if needed and uncheck Amazon apk in your sandbox if it's lit up so it can access your info.

Good Morning All

I have managed to sort it.

i had made a back before flashing using titanium and it looks like it kept the backup folder on the SD card

so i reinstaled titanium after flash and restored my amazon account rebooted and is now installed, i also

took off a couple of folders of apps that are no longer installed no program managed to show me these

anyway thank you for your help

regards

So if I am reading this correctly, you went back to an older version via restoring your backup?
