The Amazon Kindle Fire is a solid piece of hardware, but there is some problem with the software, it is coupled with. For using the Amazon Kindle Fire, there is no other way to using it other than rooting it. The Android Police is the best rooting manual available from hoards of other manuals. It is also important to know, you must be a bit nerdy or geeky. A tool known as ADB and command prompt is used. It is not PhD science, but also it isn’t easy either so some bit technical know how can’t hurt. After rooting the Amazon Kindle Fire, you will lose your warranty. So think before you leap and think before you root. Warning, if you brick your Amazon Kindle Fire without restoring it, then the loss is yours.

Rooting the Amazon Kindle Fire was very straightforward but there was a problem. The ADB is a communication tool by which you can connect Android device. Then changing the USB driver settings assists in solving this problem. Then you can work your way by following the guide from Android Police.

The first task immediately apparent is the replacement of boring and not so interesting default application launcher. Find APK file from any free launcher by a search engine. The Go Launcher application was highly usable on Amazon Kindle Fire. But that seems to bite dust when you can’t fiddle with applications you want to install.

Installing the Android market

Using the Amazon market is not entirely possible without creating false credit card information. In this case, use the Google Android Market. Making the Google Android Market to work on Amazon Kindle Fire will involve installing APK and Google Market APK. This is one giant step for the non American customers. For 200 dollars, you can finally access a whole new world of Android applications. Now that is one exciting feature opening many new possibilities. But Amazon Kindle Fire was never meant to enter the Google Android Market. Google Market can not identify the Kindle Fire. It will consider the device incompatible. You can not install all the applications as you did on other Android devices. Also, you may install the application by APK files and then install them manually. But don’t expect any updates by this method and it is irritating. Also, last but not the least you will need a ROM by which you can use ID of additional tablets.

So all in all, Amazon Kindle Fire is a cheap tablet and good for taking. Amazon did enter with a suitable and affordable device. There are other competitors in the market too who have released their own tablets. Recently, ASUS has released its 7 inch tablets equipped with quad core processors. They are priced at 250 dollars. With ASUS tablet, the Amazon Kindle Fire seems useless. The ASUS tablets are also synchronized with Google Android market and work in any corner of the world. So it’s better not to buy Amazon Kindle Fire.
