1. First Root Kindle Fire (see Post #1)
2. Install a Root file manager,

like ES Explorer http://www.estrongs.com/
Note:If installing Google apps have been tried before.
with a Root file manager
remove /system/app/GoogleServicesFramework.apk and vending.apk
remove /data/app/GoogleServicesFramework.apk and vending.apk
then reboot
3. Download
Google app.zip, place on sd card (if not there already)
Mega - XDA - http://d-h.st/ZNt -
4. Unzip with ES Explorer (should be in /sdcard/downloads/app.zip)
5. Open
/sdcard/downloads/apps/data folder created with ES Explorer,
6. Select
GoogleServicesFramework.apk, SyncSettings.apk, and vending.apk, select copy
paste to /system/app/
long press on GoogleServicesFramework.apk, then check it's box
select more (bottom right)
7. Change File Permissions
right of permissions select change to chmod: 644 (rw-r—r--)
Code:
	Read	Write	Execute
Owner     X       X
Group     X           
Other     X
select ok, cancel, back, /sdcard/downloads/apps/data
select com.modaco.marketlauncher.apk, install

then reboot
Done.
8. [Optional] If you want to sync Google Calendar and Google Contacts
copy
/sdcard/downloads/apps/system/GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk
/sdcard/downloads/apps/system/GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk
Install same as GoogleServicesFramework.apk and vending.apk,
then
reboot
then
install a calendar app from playstore
Sources :
The modaco.marketlauncher.apk is from MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Kindle Fire
creates a play store icon in stock launcher
Other apps are from Kindle Fire Uitilty
if modaco.marketlauncher.apk does not allow playstore app to work in stock launcher, push a different launcher from https://play.google.com/store/search?q=launcher
or install com.gau.go.launcherex-1.apk from apps.zip

Hey there! Unsure if you still keep tabs on this post, but I'm running into an issue. When I try to paste the three .apk files into /system/app it tells me I don't have permission to put them there! There is also no option to access permissions in the ES file manager. Any troubleshooting info would help! Thanks!
