I've had the tablet since Christmas and haven't really thought about rooting it, but I want the ability to use google play/store. It's locked out by Amazon, which means most great apps aren't available. I'd prefer to not root completely if possible, but does anyone have any guides that can get googleplay/store on the tablet without heavy rooting? If not what's the best OS to root to?

I don't know much about Kindles but I'd just go ahead and root that puppy to death. Why not. The only reason I could think of someone not wanting to root is because of warranty. But unless you know of a common defect prone to Kindles, there shouldn't be a reason not to. Pull the foreskin off that sucker and let it breath. More freedom, more elbow space to work with, more, more, more, more. Like Nike: JUST DO IT!

Not Nike though. Go figure.

Edit: Here you go:

XDA Forums 7" Kindle Fire HD...ms, Tutorial, How-To's, Ect.

Have a field day.

you can sideload the apps from the gapps package such as the play store, but it will never work correctly and you won't be able to use it without getting a ton of errors. The only choice is to root which I would recommend. The links above is a good guide. It all depends on how new your kindle is. Some of the older kindles are very easy to root and the newer versions are a little more tricky

Do it, you know you want to. I personally have no idea which software you could use to root a kindle, but i used Kingo Root on my chinese phablet. It's a bit sketchy but it worked.

F-Droid (Click Me)
GetJar (Click Me)
TorrApk (Click Me) I personally wouldn't recommend. It makes you hop around a site or two.

I see where you're getting at. I'll make some adjustments later.

Yeah I messed with sideloading, it's a useless venture due to what you said. Too many bugs and crashes.
