Our readers are awesome. Sometimes, we get an article suggestion or tip in the comments that’s so good, we have to act on it. This is one such post — thank your fellow readers for bringing it up!

If you’ve used our workaround to install Google Play on your Kindle Fire (without rooting!), you may have been frustrated after the initial steps. Some users reported issues with logging into their Google accounts on Google Play after installing Google Play Services.

Here’s the fix if this happens to you: use the alternate app store called Aptoide to update Google Play Services to the latest version. Then, open the Google Play app so you can sign in. This is where you’ll run into an error while logging in — when this happens, click the three-dot menu in the top-right corner of the screen.

This gives you the option to log in through your browser instead of the Google Play app, which should let you sign in just fine! Now, you’ll be logged into the Play Store and ready to go, fully ready to take advantage of all it has to offer to your Kindle Fire. If you want to remove Aptoide after you’ve successfully signed in, go ahead and do so.

Thanks to David and Smiley for their excellent tip! Be sure to add your own fixes or comments at the bottom of articles, and you might see them featured in a post someday!

    Without rooting? You need root. Otherwise you'll get problems. Plus rooting has so many advantages. I rooted mine after the warranty expired.
