The Amazon Instant Video APK has been pulled from the Kindle Fire and can be installed on the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

A couple of caveats:

(1) To use the Prime Instant video features, you must first purchase something to login. There is no separate login otherwise.

(2) It appears to only work over wifi

(3) If your device is rooted, it will not work.

Google I/O 10.1 Galaxy Tab

It installed and works fine, however every time I click on a video free or paid, I get a FC.

Has anyone found a work around?

Why post this? 99.99 % of us are rooted. Maybe we can fix it to work for rooted devices?
Also it doesn't work. FCS EVERYWHERE

Umm...for the simple fact that you can use Voodoo OTA temp unroot from the Market. Also the new version of this APK in todays 6.2 update doesnt work. It says this device is not suppose to be able to run Amazon Video Player.

I assume Amazon is cracking down...

Never heard of temp unroot, thanks, but yeah, as of late, amazon released a fire update, ruining everyones root on the fire and deleting the market. Probably part of that updated.

What do you mean it runs great? I get to the point of seeing the button to play the video, but it is grayed out. I can play Amazon videos fine on my Exhibit II by temporarily unrooting the stock OS. It seems Cyanogenmod is somehow detected, because it doesn't work on my Nook Color with the Cyanogenmod either.

I have the apk that allows me to play the videos for free that come with the amazon prime account (I signed up for a free month), but I don't see how to 'borrow' a book for free - this also comes with the prime account on kindle devices. Anyone have any information on how to do this on a Galaxy Tab? :confused:

Two things. One KFHD looks for the device to be logged into amazon, I bet this requires framework not on our devices. Two, probably crashes when trying to view due to same.

Bottom line? Besides logcats to figure things out, I'm pretty sure a system dump will be needed to get the correct files to go with this......

And which apk would that be? I can browse (which is kind of nice) but like everyone, crashes when trying to play.

You don't need to temp in root either. There's an xposed module called root cloak that let's you pick specific apps to hide root from. Works great
