PlayStore rooted 5th gen Kindle Fire

Just rooted my tablet I never use hoping I could install some apps I use on my android phones (Ibotta, smore, Ebates for starter bonus, etc.) Every app I look up on the new playstore I installed says not compatible. Anyone have any experience with this? I literally never use the tablet so figured I’d try some easy apps I’m familiar with to recoup the cost of the tablet.

Thanks!

      1. I haven’t done it myself but I remember it being about that easy lol. I read one thing, “Pull down the notification bar on your Android device and hit the gear-shaped settings icon, or find “settings” in the application tray. From here navigate to Apps, or App Manager. Then scroll down and find Google Play Store. Select this, and tap Clear Cache or Data” and maybe that will help

        1. I will have to look into that. I may factory reset the whole tablet than download a different apk thru a newer YouTube vid.

          1. This post (https://www.xda-developers.com/amazon-fire-hd-8-google-play-store/) doesn’t go into much detail on the steps you need to take, but the 4 APK’s are linked there to a trusted source, apkmirror.com. Each of those links will let you scroll down and find the most recent versions of the APKs.

            Actually, you say Kindle Fire 5th gen? That might be the same tablet in that link lol. You should be able to get it to work, hopefully

      1. I do rewardable on computers now and don’t run my phones anymore. I just don’t have the time and it doesn’t make enough for the heartache anymore.

        1. Understandable! I don’t even plug in my desktop anymore as that seems to be more money saved than in earned lol. I just have one old Android phone I use to double up on smore and ibotta and may try Ebates for a free $35. Idk how sensitive ebates is to that kind of shit but ibotta is easy to double offers I use frequently.

  1. Download an APK share app to your phone, create APKs of the apps you want, share them to your tablet, and install via unknown sources (sideloading).

    1. Any rec’s or videos to follow? I appreciate your help! Should I download a Launcher app as well do you think?

  2. I’m on the latest Kindle fire 10′ here. Almost all versions of FireOS are vulnerable to (and thus can be rooted by) the Dirty COW exploit

  3. Download AC Market. You can install most of the apps directly from this application. just google AC market from your tablet’s browser, go to the first link then download the APK of AC Market and install.

  4. I’ve got a few of the 5th gen 7 inch tablets. I run the Perk apps on them, though with Perk the way it is these days, they don’t earn much.
