    To be able to install Google apps, you need to install at least some of them as system apps. Since this requires modifying /system, and remounting /system as read-write requires root, you can't.

    Why not simply root the device and install gapps? Root commonly only takes a couple of minutes on most devices

    Can I do this without a computer? My crappy Kindle refuses to connect to the computer via USB.
