Tablet [App]+[MOD]Android Tablet Native SMS + Google Voice

About:
This tutorial will show tablet owners how to install a phone messenger and get Google Voice to work with it. MMS isn't supported but SMS will work. Notifications will work. Everything just like the 'Messenger + Google Voice app' has without the price. ROOT ONLY!

Needed:
Tablet
GV Intergration v2.0.0.4(attached: gvi2.5.apk)
Google Voice(attached: gv54.apk)
Phone Messenger APK You want(attached: Mms.apk)

Steps:

1) Install Google Voice from the apk attached and setup the account.

2) Install GV Intergration and setup.

Settup Should Be:
GEmail: Real
GPass: Real
Enable Intergration: Yes(Check this after step 4)
Intergration Type: ROOT
Send Type: Google Account
ALL Contacts
Replys to Texts: Yes
Sig Sent: blank
Sig Recieve: blank
Recieve Notifications: Naitive
Notification Bar: Yes or No(doesn't mater unless you have a sending issue)
Screen On: Yes
Popup: No

3) Move Mms.apk into android/app/Mms.apk. Tablets won't have one here.

4) Now install the Mms.apk from the apps folder.

5) Go back and Enable Intergration. Tablet will Reboot!

6) After reboot, run Messenger and Voice at the same time. Send some texts through messenger to your number. If you dont recieve a reply your gvoice app needs to relogin. Continue sending some texts till it notifys you to relogin if it hasn't already. Took my tablet(Asus TF101) 15 seconds to notify my Google Voice to relogin. Once you relogin it will update itself and all will be fully functional. You don't need to do these steps again. Your done!

Note: Now that the app is considered a phone native app with its number you can link gosms, chomp and such messenger to it.

I think I'm missing something. Where is the GV Integration app? I can't find it in the play store

Searching for the GV integration app in the play store on my nexus 7, I found a free app that appears to do everything this guide purports to accomplish without any extra steps. Just install the app, allow access to your gmail account (you don't have to type in your password) and you're ready to send text messages from the included stock MMS app

Some Stock MMS apps arn't supported. I used the wuick reply ones and they dont seem to be tablet friendly. You have to trial and error with the mms's that are out and see your cup of tea. the cm10 stock white works best and always notifys.

I can't find it with my XOOM either. However, if I look at Play on my computer, I can find it:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...Rpb24uZnJlZSJd

Says this app is not compatible with my XOOM but is with my E4GT. I don't need it on my E4GT.
Is there a way to force the app to install anyway?
If I can figure a way to get this working with out needing root, I want to it setup on my father's tablet (TF101), where root isn't an option.
He hates smartphones; he's still using a Sanyo Katana lol

As A TF101 owner, it can be rooted. But I'm assuming you mean you don't want to root his.
And you could always install it to your E4GT and then pull the app, save it somewhere and then uninstall it.
Then sideload it on the Xoom.

AT&T LG G2
Asus Eee Pad Transformer.
AT&T LG Optimus G. (It is still in the family)

Or, just use Mighty Text for free from the play store. SMS + MMS, plus you get to keep your phone number and integrates with Google Voice. It's free, you can utilize it via tablet and/or a Chrome extension.

Yup close enough. All my stuff is rooted, but as far as some older folks are concerned, some believe roots are for plants. *shrugs*
They still wonder occasionally why they can't see their Gmail when they open the Email app.

It's all good, I might just put GV on there and see if that is good enough before I spend too much time looking into this.

Set the GV icon to YES for statues bar and make sure gvoice is intergrated with the check. Does it instantly fail? if so then you messed up a step but if it trys sending and fails after trying for 10+ seconds this should fix it.
