I just recently got a Kindle Fire HD, and I was surprised at how restricted it was, so I rooted it. I've now successfully installed the google play store (the main reason I rooted it) and I have a few questions regarding google play and rooting. Please answer any or all questions that you can, even if the question has been answered by someone already. 1. There are some applications in the google play store that are "incompatible" with my device, even though the app is in the amazon app store and works fine when installed through amazon. Is there a way to install these "incompatible" apps anyway? I've tried changing the "ro.product.brand=" and the "ro.product.name=" fields in my build.prop, but this hasn't worked for me. Am I missing some other properties that I should change? Is there something else I can do? 2. I installed DroidWall to my Kindle Fire HD to help prevent the kindle from updating itself and undoing the root. What is the app that actually performs the update to the OS? I want to know it's name so that I can be sure that it doesn't have internet access. When I first started making this post, I thought I had more questions... but if I did, I can't think of them right now. If I can remember them, I'll be sure to post them. Hope someone see this that knows some answers!
