Get Android Market Working on A7+
As you have already found out, an Android device is useless without the Android Market. Here is how you can get it working on your A7+.
First do a factory reset on your tablet.
Go to Settings>Privacy>Factory Data Reset
Once your tablet restart you will be ready to go.
Download this package here:
and extract the contents to your micro sd card or USB stick. (I used a USB stick and it worked great). There is a folder and two files:
Amazon Marketplace.apk (optional - see below)
You will also need to acquire a copy of root explorer. It's a paid app and well worth the $4. How YOU acquire it is entirely up to you, I will count on you to do the right thing. The Amazon marketplace DOES work on the Elocity A7 and you can buy Root Explorer from there. I personally installed Amazon MP and bought a copy, even though I already bought one from Android Marketplace. (You can use the Amazon MP on all devices and log in with the same credentials to install on multiple devices with one purchase.)
Insert your SD card or USB stick in to your tablet and wait for them to mount.
Open your app drawer and find OI File Manager that came pre-installed on your tabled and open it, and hit the HOME button icon in the upper left corner.
Now hit storage and scroll down and look for:
SDCARD - look for sdcard-disk
USB - look for usb0-disk
Find the appropriate folder and click it, then find the z4root.1.3.0.apk and click it and you will go to the installation screen. Click Install at the bottom. Once its done, open it.
You will be presented with two options, temporary root and permanent root. Click permanent root and let it do its thing. It will restart your tablet and it will be done. (if it fails - especially if it hangs on reboot, turn the tablet off and do it again).
Repeat the steps above to install the Amazon Market if you need to. Either way you do it at this point you need to install Root Explorer.
Once you have Root Explorer installed open it, you should get a prompt for Super User access. Make sure you choose to ALLOW.
With Root Explorer open you should see / in the upper left corner, if not hit the back button until you do.
scroll down and click find the system folder, open it, then find the bin folder and open it. Scroll all the way down and find the file
long press on this file and choose COPY, and hit the back button twice so you are back at /.
At the top of the screen is a button that says Mount R/W - click it so that is says Mount R/O, then click the PASTE button at the bottom of the screen.
Long press on wpa_supplicant and choose rename - rename the file to wpa_supplicant_bk.
Now in this same folder find the Storage Folder and open it, and find the correct folder for your external storage method (same as above) and click it. Open the gapps folder, then system folder, then the app folder.
Hit the menu button, choose Multi Select, then click select all, then copy.
Now hit back again untill you are at the / directory, then go to the System folder, and open the app folder.
Click PASTE. (if you get an error hit the Mount R/W button again) when it asks if you want to over wright some apps, choose YES to all.
Your device will flash, and jump to the Elocity Boot screen, then it will make you go through the Android setup wizard.
At this point ensure WiFi is turned OFF.
Now open root explorer, browse back to your storage method, open gapps>System>bin and find the wpa_supplicant file. Long press it, and copy it.
Now browse back to the system folder, and open the bin folder, and click paste. It will ask to confirm over wright - choose YES. (Same as above if you get protected directory error).
Finally reboot one last time and you should now have a working market!
