Hi guys

I have a Kindle Fire which I want to remove a Google account from so it is no longer associated with the Fire.

I cannot find away to do this other than I guess a factory reset.

It is rooted with Android Market installed.

Thanks

It was moved to /data/system/users/0/accounts.db and deleting that file worked for me. Just have to re-sign into the Playstore.

Just delete all four Google Apps and reinstall them.

Remove Google Play Store No root needed
Edit "Remove Google Play Store Account"
I was able to do this without root. Settings>Apps&Games>Manage All Applications>Google Play Store> then clear cache and clear data.
Account is gone

Goober, download an SQLite editor, there are a ton in the play store. Edit the accounts.db mentioned above. Open the accounts table and delete the record for the account you want to remove. Reboot.

If you had that account selected in any apps, those apps might act weird. If that happens, just clear data for that app. (Ex: clash of clans wouldn't let me select a different account; it was stuck on the deleted account).
