    Many have reported issues with google framework on system versions 5.1.X
    Google Framework seems to work fine on 5.3.X.X - 12 Aug 2016


    System version 5.0.1: If you plan to root, just install open gapps using twrp or FlashFire (ARM 5.0.1 micro or smaller)
    opengapps.org

    How to Use FlashFire App

    System version 5.0.0: If you don't take the update to 5.0.1, Google apps are not going to work correctly.

    Troubleshooting

    Issue connecting to Google servers try
    "turn on 2-step authentication. after doing that i happily came across the error “couldn’t sign in: to access your account you must sign in on the web. touch next to start browser sign in.” which i knew would work. case solved for my issue. hope this helps others."




    Store app is showing up as "Play Store | Work".
    i think every one with that issue, has a grandfathered free Google Apps Account
    If that is the case no fix, but should work fine
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=63833958&postcount=27


    if sign in hangs on connecting to servers, you may need to fix permissions for Google Play services
    with an adb command

    Enable Developer Options
    Settings>Device Options>Tap on Serial Numbers several times>You are now Developer

    Enable USB Debugging
    Setttings>Device Options>Developer Options>Enable ADB>tap on toggle>Enable

    Install ADB drivers

    Setup adb.exe
    Several options for this, one easy way is
    [TOOL] [WINDOWS] ADB, Fastboot and Drivers - 15 seconds ADB Installer v1.4.2 by Snoop05

    test adb in command prompt type
    Code:
    adb devices
    press enter
    should get a code return of something like
    G000H404537702CP device

    Note: if you get unauthorized, drivers are not correct

    If you got a good code return
    copy this code in command prompt
    Code:
    adb shell pm grant com.google.android.gms android.permission.INTERACT_ACROSS_USERS
    and enter

    there will not be any code return

    retry signing in with google account

    if play store fails to open reinstall
    Google Play (com.android.vending-5.9.12-80391200-minAPI9.apk)


    Anyone have an idea how to add a second google Account? I use one account for play store and anotherone for g+, hangouts etc...
    open gmail /settings /add account /google
    should be options in hangouts also

    Once I finally got a 4.4.4 set of framework and account manager apks and ran the adb permission command I was finally able to get my google apps like gmail and chrome to sign in.

    The Play Store app immediately crashes right after opening before loading anything.
    Google Inbox loads up and displays a list of emails and then crashes.
    Hangouts appears to work well so far for messaging. I haven't tried any of the calling features yet.
    Chrome, Gmail, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Books, Keep, Maps, Keyboard, Youtube, Chromecast and Calendar all appear to be working properly. I haven't used any of them extensively yet but they all loaded up and performed some quick basic functions without crashing.

    Longer Method

    Download ES File Explorer from the Amazon Marketplace. It's free.

    Allow Apps from Unknown Sources
    Settings>Security>tap toggle>Ok

    Download https://mega.nz/#F!AI5n0AaR!Qw-WJrBoCP8bce-so0hzFQ
    place on sd card

    Install these files
    Google Play (com.android.vending-5.9.12-80391200-minAPI9.apk)
    Google Play Services (com.google.android.gms-6.6.03_(1681564-036)-6603036-minAPI9.apk)
    Google Account Manager (GoogleLoginService.apk)
    Framework (GoogleServicesFramework.apk)

    open with file manager
    file manager will ask if you want to install

    Rebooting is a good idea.

    most likely you will need to grant special permissions for Google Play services
    with an adb command see post #2

    Done.

    Shadow, many thanks for this useful info and I now have Google Play working on Fire 7.

    1, I downloaded the initial Google APKs
    2, Installed them but Google Play would not load.
    3, Unable to run suggest 'adb devices' command as using Linux and not Wintel platform.
    4, installed [ com.android.vending-5.9.12-80391200-minAPI9.apk] onto Fire 7
    5, Google Play and App install working

    I have not tested any other features yet regarding Google Play.

    UPDATE:
    Not sure if there is a possible bug but when I try to install apps from Google store that I have already paid for I am prompted to pay again. The Google Play on my Fire 7 knows it is myself (it is logged in as me), as it is prompting for my card payment but it is not recognising I have paid for the apps previously.

    The two apps I have tested are Google Analytixs and Aqua Mail Pro Key - both apps are not a one time purchase. I can install on as many Android based devices as possible.

    What version of fire OS are you guys on? And is there a way to prevent updates? I dont want to let it auto update in case it breaks gapps and I'm hoping for root access to be available sometime.

    Thanks to everyone for the files and info. I finally got google apps and the play store working! I think my problem came down to blocking updates from Amazon in my router and google 2-step verification. Once I turned of url blocking of Amazon updates, allowed fire os 5.0.1 to install, and logged into google on another device to confirm the attempted access from the fire was legit it all worked. Hangout calls, google maps, casting to Shield TV all work. Not bad for a $50 tablet. I'm probably going to block the amazon updates again just in case. Thanks again!

      It looks like I may have gotten rid of the ads on 5.1.1. by connecting to the adb shell and running these commands:
      Code:
      pm clear com.amazon.kindle.kso
      pm hide com.amazon.kindle.kso
      or from the command line:
      Code:
      adb shell pm clear com.amazon.kindle.kso
      adb shell pm hide com.amazon.kindle.kso

      Hi Guys, I just got a new Fire (5th gen) with 5.1.1 on it. I tried to install google play from various sources using various methods to no avail. I tried the instructions in this thread, I tried the "SuperTool", and I tried to manually downloads APKs from apkmirror, and I always get the same outcome: as soon as I try to log in, google shows me the dreaded "There was a problem communicating with Google servers" error message. At the same time, I'm receiving thousands of emails from google informing me that someone logged in from a new android device, so clearly it is communicating with google, and the username/password is correct.

      I tried searching online for solution, uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, rebooted even more times ... I really have no clue at this point. Anybody has any idea?

      This worked for me...

      "turn on 2-step authentication. after doing that i happily came across the error “couldn’t sign in: to access your account you must sign in on the web. touch next to start browser sign in.” which i knew would work. case solved for my issue. hope this helps others."
