I installed 1mobile app on my KF. When you search for Dolphin HD, all you get are a handful of THEMES, not the full browser. The only browser there is some stripped down "mini" thing. I tried going to GETJAR, but it asks me what device I have and when I say KINDLE it won't accept it...just sits there at the icon for the device and won't go any further. Other people have posted links to ZIP files, saying to unzip them and move the .APK file there, but theres NO .apk file to be found.

Speak to me like a FIVE YEAR OLD and tell me exactly how to get the apk file for Dolphin HD from a site...with a PC (and not the Kindle itself or some android smart phone) Browser download, if you can!

Thanks much. I believe 98% of everybody else with a KF has an Android phone, hence when they go to sites like Getjar and so on, it accepts that device and then they can sideload it. I cannot do this because I do not have a smart phone to register in the first place.

I am one of the 2%, welcome to the club ;)

getjar.com has Dolphin HD. It is similar to 1mobile, where you go there on the Fire, download their app, then get Dolphin.

Thanks. For some reason (maybe they are just trying to frustrate people) the DOWNLOAD button is tricked out so as not to be responsive. If you keep trying (took me about ten tries reloading the page and so on) I finally got it to download the GETJAR app, and then a few dozen more tries at mashing the download button on the KF touchscreen...and getting several iterations of the message "DOWNLOAD FAILED TRY LATER", I finally got it to "catch" and give me the @#$^ thing. So OK, I now have it installed and working along with Go Launcher EX from 1Mobile.com and I am a happy camper.

Well, except all this stuff doesn't play too well together. The Kindle system keeps overwriting my choice of wallpaper for the GO launcher, and the GO launcher won't let me use a picture from my gallery as wallpaper for more than two minutes. Something keeps changing it to the garbage pictures you get on the gold bar swipe screen to start the KF up.

Heh, that took me most of the evening to get this stuff working, just like a new PC. I'm not a noob, except I am with Android!
