UPDATE! Follow this link to remove Amazon altogether!
UPDATE! The newly released 6.2.1 and 6.2.2 Amazon updates will break previous root access. This, however, has been bypassed, thanks to RootzWiki and AndroidPolice. Please check out http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1407129. (You need root access to register your device with your Google account). This will allow you access to the Android Market App and Gmail.
This video will show you the benefits of bypassing the Amazon Launcher and App Store to fully realize the capabilities of your Kindle Fire tablet. The Kindle Fire was created to be a “Media Consumption” device and Amazon peripheral. This video will demonstrate what a Kindle Fire is actually capable of. My instructions are only meant to point you in the right direction.
1. Root your Kindle Fire – http://www.kindlefirewire.com will show you how to do this. You will need a program called SuperOneClick, and follow simple instructions.
2. Apps – Side load a separate Android Launcher (Go Launcher, ICS), Android Market, and an internet browser. With a little research, this is very easy to do. You can add customized widgets to your Home Screen using Go Launcher or Elixer 2.
Other indispensable apps include ES File Explorer and MX Media Player. ES File Explorer will allow you to navigate to network shares located on your PC. MX Media Player will allow you to play and stream various video file types that may be stored on your PC.
3. Wallpaper – The Kindle Fire automatically changes the wallpaper each time the device wakes from sleep mode or is turned on. If you’ve installed a third party launcher and want your wallpaper to always be displayed instead of being changed to one of Amazon’s default wallpapers. Here’s how to keep the Fire from changing your wallpaper.
Note: The following was performed on a rooted Kindle Fire.
We are going to use ES File Explorer to do this, it allows you to do this easily and you can create a shortcut to the appropriate system directory so that you can make changes easily in the future. If you don’t have ES File Explorer installed on your Kindle Fire, open the device’s web browser and go here to install it.
Use your third party launcher (AWD, Go Launcher, etc.) to change the wallpaper on your device. Don’t let the device go to sleep yet, it will change your wallpaper.
Open ES File Explorer and click the Star icon at the top of the app.
You will need to navigate the directories as follows: data/data/com.android.settings/files
Inside the files directory, long tap wallpaper and select Properties.
Select the Change button.
Uncheck the two checkboxes that are checked under the write column.
Select the OK button.
Select the OK button on the Properties window.
Now your Kindle Fire wallpaper can not be changed by you or the operating system. To change your wallpaper, place checks back in the two boxes and change your wallpaper. When finished, uncheck the two boxes again to permanently save your changes.
4. GetJar – This is another portal for free Kindle Fire apps. Please visit http://www.getjar.com on your Kindle for access.
Definition – Side Load – Install apps directly from a shared folder on your PC. This is very easy to do via a Wi-Fi connection and ES File Explorer.

How to Know if You’ve Been Hacked? If you think your smartphone is your private zone, you may be very wrong. So far, there is no such device that can’t be hacked.
We often see our smartphones as our secure digital havens. We use them to keep our most personal information: from pictures to credit card details. Some people even save their passwords in Notes.
