Skip the Apk Share backup step entirely. It's an unnecessary complication. ES File Explorer has the ability to back-up applications already. And with Dropbox installed on your BlueStacks device, you can then upload the backed-up apk to your Dropbox all from within BlueStacks. Then...

Download directly to your Fire with the Dropbox app installed on your Fire ... or download from Dropbox to your PC for sideloading via usb. Bada-boom, bada-bing.

Wow! I did it! I bought an app, Mantano Essentials, for 2.99 from Google play, installed it on a Lenovo Tab, then figured out how to back it up with ES File explorer, put it into Sugarsync, downloaded to my new Fire HD, installed, and it works!!! I am so glad, as I like the 2 page layout with Mantano, but with the Lite version, you couldn't change the default font.

I'll have to see if I can use this procedure to put Minecraft on my daughters Fire2. I should have bought it from Amazon, what was I thinking!

Sadly I couldnt install the BlueStacks program on my PC because my Video Card (built in graphics chipset on PCB) is not new enough and so not supported.

It would have been cool to get the Play Store without rooting.
Maybe when I fix my wifes laptop I will try again, but that might yield the same result

Should I delete side-loaded apks?

I have recently bought an KHD and am enjoying it greatly, especially reading the free out-of-copyright books. However, I am also interested in some non-Amazon apps and have successfully sideloaded and installed a few. Once I have done so, should I keep their apks on the Kindle or delete them?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Yes you can delete them but it might be good to setup a free offline cloud storage acct like Box.net (my fav) or dropbox. This is important if you want to save key apps that you rely on and if there is an update and has a major bug you can always reinstall a lower non buggy version. Or for apps you bought (paid for) from a non amazon site (since amazon does keep your apps in the cloud). They do take up space. If you use an app like Sandisk Memory Zone or Android Assistant or ES file explorer, you can find all the apks hidden on your phone/tablet and sort them by size and then delete them

Hi
How did you install Getjar?? I tried to get it on my computer and then via USB to Kindle Fire but I couldn't even get it to my computer. I am a bit tech challenged. I live in Australia and nothing works except downloading books from Amazon.

1.) Install ES FileExplorer from the Amazon store. You'll need it.
2.) Browse to: m.getjar.com using Kindle Fire.
3.) Select Quick Download and enter "16914" as the download code.
4.) With ES FileExplorer, go to the download folder and select the GetJar apk file.
5.) Select Install button at bottom of screen.

Ditto! Much thanks. I recently acquired a refurbished Kindle Fire for approximately half price and have been pretty happy with it. I use it to complement my Kobo Touch. The Kobo has the day shift. The Kindle the night shift.

My primary use of the Kindle is for social media/media consumption. Your sideloading procedure works wonderfully. Only bummer so far is that I tried to load the Comix app with no success. It keeps stopping.

Once again Eweforia thank you very much.

Sideloading Calibre Companion

I'd love to know if anyone has been successful using Calibre Companion on a Kindle Fire (first edition) -- and has been able to install it outside of Amazon.

Does anyone know if Calibre Companion can be sideloaded?

It's available on Google Play but not through Amazon on my Kindle Fire device.

The developer says it probably won't ever be available to download from a Kindle Fire. Amazon is apparently not allowing it to be sold from their store.

Figures - as that's the device I have.

Thanks for any info you guys can share (I did do a search in this thread for calibre companion and didn't find anything posted already).

This is a MAJOR pain in the butt to try to get the Mantano reader app !!!

When I purchase the app off Amazon's site ...it won't let me download it (or access it) because they don't want me to put it on my Kindle Fire HDX

When I try to purchase it from Mantano's site ...they send me to Google Play ...and they don't want to sell it to me ...because I don't have one of THEIR devices

There appears to be sites that let you "download" the apk ...but they all look VERY questionable!!! I have no desire to "steal" the reader ...but where can I buy it ?!?!?

Other than hacking and unlocking, which I decided not to, I still love and use my fire hd. but both of my nexus , first and 7.2 are so superior and open..

I moved on .. got out of the amazon 'garden'.. Do not need to root unless for special needs. and wide open to be what machine you want the machine to be be in your hands..


Amazon as long as you have an account , does not really care what kind , kindle. android.
you are running.....

there is no loyalty as far brands and devices go.. All personal preference..

as it should be..

I do not accept amazons locked garden..

And the thing is ....No difference....

Tho I am free...
