I'd like to politely ask for your help with adding Google Play to my friend's tablet which unfortunately doesn't provide this app in factory setting.
First of all I'd like to mention that I've searched here before (and other sources over the internet as well) and found many threads with similar issues. Still I was unable to get everything working because of some problems that I'm not able to solve as I'm still just a user... Unfortunately it seems that each device is unique and requires a little different stuff to reach the goal.
So here's some basic information about the device:
- Maxell Maxtab C8
- Android 4.0.4
- Kernel version: 3.0.8+
- Successfully rooted the device
- Successfully set -rw to /system (using the "Mount /system (-rw / -ro)" app
- Android Market_install_files.zip
- PlayStore_v4.6.17.apk found somewhere here in the forums
Currently I've also found GApps Manager (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2589167) - I think this might work but I'm not able to test it at all. Simply I can't find how to get this Maxell tablet into recovery mode to find the "install from zip file" option.
Interesting is that there is no "Phonesky.apk" file in the device's memory...
Sorry for my post being soooo long but I'd like to provide as many additional information as possible.
Could you please give me advice how to install GApps on Maxell Maxtab C8 device or any other solution?
This could look easy for many of you but I'm working on it over two weeks now and I'm really clueless, even more when there are users confirming that Google Play works with this device. So I hope you're be so glad to help. Any help will be highly appreciated! Thanks!
With kind regards
