I posted how to get GAPPS working in the Fire HD 6&7 threads a few weeks ago and was informed it works on the HDX as well. This video will show you how you can install GAPPS on the Fire HD6, HD7 or HDX without root. All Google Apps should work excluding Google Search (Google search now works), Google Play Store, and Hangouts.

Question
Is it just (lucky) me or does this fix also allow to verify app purchases via the Google license checker? Sideloaded my paid apps and they work! Don't know if this would also happen without GApps.

Excellent thanks, this worked for me on 4.5.1, did it on my Mac too.

Any chance of Chrome working?

First off - thank you for this, saved me from having to root the device and gives me the functionality I was going to root for.

The only issue I'm having is that Gmail isn't syncing in the background. If I get new mail the Amazon email app notifies my in the shade straight away but Gmail won't. If I open Gmail I have to sync manually. I've checked in the Gmail app settings and it is set to sync and create notifications - any ideas? I thought one of the frameworks in your zip might need re-installing?

Scratch that, I uninstalled gmail, Google Play Services and Google Framework. Then I resinstalled the versions in your zip, ran the ADB command and hey presto notifications are working again. Either the updated version of play services that 1mobilemarket installed doesn't work or the ADB command needs running again after the update.

Working gmail notifications again

Spoke too soon, notifications seem to have died again (No software updates have been done)... investigating.

Thanks for your post.

But is it only me or is the Play store not working?
Stuck at " No Connection - Retry" but I can't get it working

Fire OS 4.51 on HDFX 7

Maybe someone point me to a working way, please...

Quoting from the original post "All Google Apps should work excluding Google Search (Google search now works), Google Play Store, and Hangouts." Google play store will not work without root. I plan to sync my apps to my dropbox in apk form and then use file manager with dropbox access to access them and install.
