We've got one of these and would like to know how to get android market/google play.ok, I just got this this afternoon and started playing with it, and of course broke it within minutes got it to reboot, tried several ways to root it and none worked. I typed adb shell from my pc and found this wonderful prompt that looked like this..
it already has root. so here's what I did to make it work.
download this root.zip
unzip it to the location of your choice
you must have adb installed on the OS of your choice.
To confirm your device is properly detected, in the command prompt, run
Now copy busybox, su, superuser.apk to /data/local/tmp/ using adb.
adb push busybox /data/local/tmp
adb push su /data/local/tmp
adb push Superuser.apk /data/local/tmp
Now run adb shell
Note that you see a "#" sign in the command prompt.
Next run the following commands in the shell to change permissions on the files:
****** Note that the names of the files are case sensitive ******
chmod 6755 /data/local/tmp/su
chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/busybox
chmod 644 /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk
now to put the files in the proper locations.
change to the correct directory.
copy su and busybox to /system/bin/
./busybox cp -p su /system/bin/
./busybox cp -p busybox /system/bin/
copy Superuser.apk to /system/app/
./busybox cp -p Superuser.apk /system/app/
that should give you everything you need for a fully functioning root package.
the binaries might be out of date a bit, but they work, and as an alternative to copying busybox to /system/bin you can download busybox installer (pro) and run that to install busybox.
(note: I did notice that busybox 1.20.1 would not install on my tablet, but 1.20 did.)
I'll figure out how to get android market/google play to install shortly, then I'll post it up for anyone who wants it.
as far as google play/market goes, after you've rooted it is remount /system as rw and put the vending apk in /system/appWe've got one of these and would like to know how to get android market/google play.
