So, after looking through many sites and forums I’ve noticed that most have forgot about the mainstream when it comes to things like side loading apps. Most won’t connect their Kindle Fire to their PC via the usb port, but if they do they certainly won’t know how to use ADB with it. There is a way easier way to do this:
Yes, the Kindle Fire can connect to any Mac or PC using a Micro-USB cable (no cable is included, though). The device mounts as a generic USB drive, prepopulated with folders for music, videos, photos, documents, and other content.
If you already have a rooted Android Phone, great! This is for you. If not, then you will learn to live within the confines of Amazon’s walled garden. Most Tablet owners with anything but Honeycomb know to use astro on their phones to back up their favorite apps/apk’s and then transfer them to their PC. After that, go to settings then applications and check “install from untrusted source.” Connect your Kindle Fire to your PC via USB and transfer files (If that can’t be done, nix it and watch a movie then).After that, download ES File explorer on your Fire and navigate to your saved apps. Click on them and follow the prompts to install.
This is of course in theory. We do not have an Amazon Kindle to test with but if it is android (and it is) this is the quickest way to get your favorite apps that the Amazon marketplace does not have. Any previously purchased apps might not work if they have to call to the Google market for licenses checks but free non-Google apps should work.
Let us know how it goes so we can help with plan “B” if need be…
