    Does installling Google play on a kindle invalidate the warranty? 30th Nov 17 at 3:53 PM
    Hi folks,

    As you all know the Kindle tablet comes without google play, but easy enough to install it, without rooting just a matter of installing a few apps downloaded on the kindle itself.

    Just wondering though does Amazon consider this as voiding your warranty, since the kindle does have a setting to install apps from unknown sources, and in effect that is all you are really doing.

    Of course they don't like it, and I don't intend to ask them, but what do you think?


    Thanks.

    I've done it on mine - they're cheap as chips these days so hang the warranty.

    Well just got mine, is there any easy way other than parental controls to disable accidently clicking, on a sign up, or buy now ad?


    Parental controls seem to more or less disable everything, including things you want to do


    Thanks

    No. Provided you do not root the device, you're within warranty.
