    You will have to Google it to see who has it for download. The place I got it from no longer has it. Other posts on Kindle-related blogs may help.

    Thanks so much for this thread. I've been hanging out at xda and they are so focused on being rooted that there is virtually no info for the non rooted.

    I have my phone rooted but I don't have any interest in rooting my kindle.

    The framework that was linked here, didn't work, it wouldn't install. I got one from a google search and that one worked. Thanks sooo much.

    youtube, google music, calendar, maps, google + and gmail work. I am so excited. I downloaded those using the 1mobile market.

    Here's the framework: Download GoogleServicesFramework.apk from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

    I side loaded the framework apk. I never have a problem with gmail syncing using gocalender. I would rate gocalender a 2.0 because of the display. I love the native calender that came with my HTC Thunderbolt, but I have not been successful in replicating it on the fire. I find it interesting that I get a better calender display on a 4" phone than a 7" tablet.

    Nope sorry, the calendar didn't really work, I've been using calengoo before this so I guess I'll go back. Gmail is running and I am so happy!
