    Thread Why can't we just download and sideload Play Services, etc from APKMirror

    I apologize in advance for asking what's probably a stupid question. I searched the Mate 30 forums and could not find an answer. Like the Mate 30, Amazon Fire Tablets run an Android fork without Play Services, Play Store, Google Services Framework and Google Account Manager. For years, Fire...

    Thread [Q] Any guesses to how long it will take to root the Amazon Fire?

    As the subject implies, I am wondering whether a Fire will be rootable, and if so how long it will take after release. Also interested if it will have GPS, but that's not really an Android question :-)
