Didn't even need to uninstall updates. it just suddenly started working.

As of yesterday it managed to pull down the subjects, and showed them in notification. But when I go there it flashed and just disappeared (crashed).

Tonight I see that it pulled down all the subjects again. This time, the app stayed open!

So it was doing SOMETHING in the background... weird...

All Gapps working on my Kindle HDX 7. Awesome! Thanks!!! Widgets & wallpaper too. Just make sure not to update google apps (gmail, g+, etc.) in Playstore after install. I found this out after I updated Gmail in Play Store, and it stopped opening. I uninstalled the update & it worked fine again.

Prime Instant Videos and Amazon mp3 is working for me. I'm able to watch the Prime Instant Videos, & even download Prime videos. However, Amazon Kindle books isn't working. When I click on the icon it does nothing. I can live without my books for now.

Also - and I am sure this is probably important - I started with a clean build before flashing this in SafeStrap slot 1. I used the backup that I made right after activating Safestrap.

I personally in the meantime will stick to the stock rom. (After all near or enough all APK's can be transferred to the phone and installed from there. Don't really want to go into the slot based rom loading as storage space is limited enough as it is (16gb in my version of the HDX)

'Had the same issue with my Amazon reader app -- I got all my books back by using an older version of the Kindle app -- the current/recent version offered by the Play Store will not load after it installs. However, I have normal functionality and all my books after installing Amazon Kindle ver. 4.2.0.54. I found it through a link here, on XDA -- but can't locate it at the moment; try a search.

If you use it -- make sure you un-install your current version and all its data & cache (CleanMaster will do this automatically). Once you install it, try it -- it works fine for me on my HDX7 -- and make sure you do not allow "auto update" from Play Store -- or the issue will return.

I did the same but Amazon apps nor prime works. It force closes...strange. the rom was touted as a non Amazon only Google working. He said he would work on a rom that both work on...are we talking about same rom?

I have tried a number of time so get Android Cowboys method to work but I continue to get error messages. Were you rooted or did you get play store w/o root? You have SafeStrap installed also?

Did you also get amazon prime. Please tell us what steps you took after install cause amazon instant video app is not there and needs to be side loaded
