I'm pretty much a complete worthless noob with this stuff, but I did manage to use RootJunkie's supertool to install Google Play and switch to Nova launcher(Thank you RJ). Not to hijack this awesome thread, but I have a quick question. I changed the background picture on Nova launcher. Before I got the OTA updates blocked, it installed 5.1.2.
The tablet is back to the Amazon launcher, but it still has the ugly background pic I had set in Nova. Anyone know of a way to change the background pic in the Amazon launcher.....or is it just stuck until someone (much smarter than me) comes up with these same tools for 5.1.2??
