    Default How to get Go Launcher Ex to work on Kindle Fire?

    I've been trying to get Go Launcher Ex to work on my Kindle Fire, but after many attempts, still have to succeeded. Summary of what I've done (several times, with various variations):
    1) set device to accept non-Amazon apps
    2) installed AndroXplorer
    3) downloaded Go Launcher Ex (ver 3.19, I believe)
    4) installed Go Launcher Ex

    Per a YouTube video, I should be able to click/execute Go Launcher Ex from a shelf on the 'installed Apps' screen, or from the carousel. Although I can verify that the app was installed (by exploring in the applications area of the settings), I can not get it to run.

    Is there something I've not done, or something I've done wrong?

    Thanks

    I think that is all I did on my Fire to get it to work. Just in case it makes a difference (it shouldn't) are you on the old or new Kindle Fire?

    I'm using the new (2nd generation) Kindle Fire. Do you have the first or second generation Fire?

    From some other inputs, and my own investigations, I've come to believe (at least suspect) that it won't work on the 2nd generation Fire. I'm still hoping to find someone who's gotten it to work on that one.

    I am using the original Fire.

    There is a different subforum for the V2, but nobody seems to post there, so here is as good as anywhere.

    I am having the same problem. I have watched the YouTube video and downloaded the AndroXplorer and Go Launcher Ex. The app is there yet it will not open and at no point, hitting the Home button, am I prompted to choose Launchers. Any ideas why?

    Same issue with the Kindle Fire 2nd generation (7" non-HD). Software version 10.2.1.

    I installed the app using a file explorer but the app did not appear in the installed apps tab (on Cloud or Device) and I couldn't get it to run.

    I tried several versions of Go Launcher EX with no success.

    The app just mustn't be compatible with the Kindle Fire 2?

    Edit: Bought in the UK.

    Seems like any launcher (e.g. ICS, ADW e.t.c.) for the 2nd gen Kindle Fire will not work as you cannot clear the application defaults for the "Kindle Launcher" - they are greyed out.
    To avoid this restriction you would need to gain root access which might not be that simply for some...

    Amazon appear to be determined on preventing user customisations which to me is a bit short sighted since that's half the fun of owning a tablet.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1399889

    Installs Root, FFF, TWRP or CWM, Google Apps, Google Play, and the Go Launcher.

    This is for the original Kindle Fire.
