Yes take the apk file from the zip file and copy it to system/app.

I am working on seeing if I get the boot loader unlocked so we can use a custom recovery then we can make custom rom's like CM7 or CM9 since the hardware could use it.

Rooting and installing market is all easy. Next comes recovery.
if you tap home and on button at the same time it boots into some odd mode, from where you can boot back into system by pressing power button.

Maybe, this could be recovery or fastboot mode....

Uhm when you boot into this mode the screen is black with the led green. Tap power button once you reboot back into system.
Could someone try plugging it into the computer while its in this mode thing and see if it's detected?

Uhm have any of,you guys received a system update on this device before? Where is the update downloaded to? And how does it install the update? Like other devices, through the stock recovery?

The downloaded software would be in your sdcard. And after u finish downloaded the ota, it will automatically install the update for you

Perhaps we can hijack this system to load a custom rom ....but that largely depends on what kind of encryption it uses.....

I have spend many hours (days) on trying to get access into this thing with no success. If we can get to the boot loader maybe we can do what was done on the Sony X10 and load a custom rom on top. I will look into this but don't think it will work since we would still need adb access in order to load the files needed.

We need some better developers then me to look into this tablet to see if access is even possible.
