    Well if someone has or finds an APK that works, please drop it in your drop box and pm me/us/post a link. I'm away from my puter for the week.

    I have found a way for HBO Go to work!

    1. Turn off your wifi on the Fire. 2. Start hbo go app 3. App will state it needs Internet connection 4. Turn wifi back on 5. Click try again button in hbo app 6. Enjoy!

    Unhappy Newbie (sort of) so don't get too technical..help with hbogo

    Got a KF. Love it so far.
    Dont own an android device other than the Fire.
    Have been making many (frustating) attempts to sideload hbogo.apk file onto my Kindle Fire.
    This is what I tried so far. Installed dropbox, searched the web and installed a suspicious looking .apk file (in dropbox) on my computer. Accessed dropbox via the Fire and installed the App. Unfortunately does not launch (says something like incompatible on Fire!!). unsure whether the app was faulty or whether the powers that be at Amazon is preventing use of hbo on KF!
    So, can someone mention or document a .apk file (for hbogo) that can be directly downloded to my computer (dropbox) and subsequently sideloaded on the Fire?
    Thanks.

    I can confirm the report in the post directly above your own. There was an update to the Hbogo app where it checks device as it launches. Soooo, turn off the wifi, THEN launch the app. It will say it needs internet. So, turn on the wifi at that point. It works just fine after that. .....for now.

    Its obvious that a change was made specifically to cut out the Fire, for whatever reason. So, there's no telling how long this will work.

    Well, I've tried this and I still can't get it to work. Any other suggestions?

    Here is a new customized version that I'm using, the new updated "com.HBO-1.apk", it's semi auto screen rotation, but it plays all video in the landscape mode, get it HERE MOD EDIT.

    Plaease note: Remove the current version HBOGO.apk that you already have on your mobile device, before installing the new customized version com.HBO-1.apk app. enjoy .....
