    I just watched a video about how to root the Fire, but it seemed like the Google Play Store (and some third-party launchers) were already installed on the device before he rooted it. Does rooting alone not allow you to do this? Do I need to install Google services first before following the root instructions?

    Also, does rooting remove the ads, or does that require extra steps too?

    I thought rooting changed all this stuff automatically, but it seems like it all has to be done separately. Install Google, remove ads, *then* root?
