Where did you get the files from?

My tablet seams to have a problem...
On reboot, it reverts to stock.
And I can't even install the Amazon App Store, it states it doesn't have enough memory???

Only way is to reflash the original live suite image. You can either reflash stock (Here: http://southerntelecom.com/polaroidsupport/firmware/)
or a custom ROM (here:http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.p...ew-Location%29)

Just be careful to know exactly WHICH version of the PMID701i you have, although these tabs are pretty unbrickable, so if you flash the wrong one after finding you have a different version, you won't have to worry about throwing it in the trash-just install the correct image

ES File Explorer

To check root access
- Open es file explorer
- go to settings
- scroll down to Root settings
- make sure there are check sign under Root Explorer and Mount File System (Mine already selected since its fully rooted out of the box) If not, select or check it to have root access to system folder

Install Market

- With ES file explorer Navigate to your ext-sdcard (by tapping the star sign/Favorites) and copy Vending.apk to system/app by the following
- Long press Vending.apk and select copy (you will see drawer icon on the bottom)
- Select favorites (star symbol) and tap phone symbol or / (its the second icon from the left after Home icon)
- Tap system folder than tap app folder
- Once you on app folder, drag the drawer icon up and tap Vending.apk to paste it.
- Once its successfully done you need to change the Permissions to RW R R
by long press the Vending.apk-Properties - than change (under permissions)

If for some reason you cant install OneTimeInitializer-signed.apk and GoogleServicesFramework.apk by tapping it, do the same procedure as copying the Vending.apk

Now reboot and you should have Google Market.
Do you still have this file? Link is dead.
