Try using an old version of the program to root and using the most recent version to add gapps.

This program is for ICS, that's why it wouldn't let you root.

What I'm trying to say is that you're in the wrong place.

Got this to work on a PMID705x with a little extra.
Installed Android SDK following this tut
cant post links so added a space infront of the .net "londatiga .net/it/how-to-use-android-adb-command-line-tool/".

Then I made the system read write using ADB "mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system"
Then ran PolaroidAIO.

I had previously semi bricked the tablet doing the PolaroidAIO 1st then remount RW And using SwitchMe.

I Followed Poloroids FAQ on lost tablet password
cant post links so added a space infront of the .com "polaroid .com/faqs/tablet-faqs/i-forgot-my-password-on-the-tablet-how-do-i-reset-it"
Was able to download OEM rom. This rom is 4.0.4 Not 4.1

Wayne (the program's dev) should really start working on this again.
The program does successfully install gapps, but has issues detecting root. This leads to many issues.

3. On your tablet, download and install Root Explorer. (Edit: Root Explorer is a paid app, removed link.)
4. On your tablet, download and extract the zip (Attached) with Root Explorer.
5. Copy the files from the LLPermissions folder to /system/etc/permissions/, restart your tablet, then try Google Play.
6. If step 5 didn't give you the full store, go to apps in settings and clear data for Google Services Framework and Google Play.
7. Copy the files from the DSPermissions folder except g.prop to /system/etc/permissions/, copy g.prop to /system/etc/.
8. Restart your tablet and try Google Play again.

I have a PMID800 and step 5 did give me a full store.
My only question is my brightness is stuck at full all the time, are there any fixes for this?
