Hi,


I'm trying to install Google Play on an unsupported device (Creative ZEN Touch 2). The device is rooted.

So far, I've downloaded the up-to-date APK of the Play Store, renamed it Vending.apk, and copied it in /system/app with the correct permissions. However, Play Store get an "error" after reboot - it says I need to configure a Google account first, I click yes, and the app just close (No force close. It just close).

Then I found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R89HtH0WfuA
Seems I have to install the "GoogleServicesFramework" first, followed by "OneTimeInitializer" (What does this one does?) and "SetupWizard" (I do have a "Setup Wizard" on my device.

However, when I start the GoogleServicesFramework APK, I just get a Parse error ("There was a problem parsing the package"). The APK is not corrupted.
I notice that in my "Accounts and Sync", I don't have a Google Account, and cannot apparently add one (It's just not listed when I click "Add"). I've also installed Gmail app, and it just force close, because there's no Google account.
I tried the hard way, I've directly copied GoogleServicesFramework.apk in /system/app (Yeah, maybe I shouldn't have - but the device is unusable, a lot buggy and driver failure anyway), rebooted, but all that I have, are reccurent force close from Gmail, Dropbox and oddly ROM Manager (Dropbox and Gmail requires Sync so I would understant.. But ROM Manager? Oh well).

...So, what now? :/ Google Play could probably work, but I can't add a Google account (The device ROM was quite customized. It's not a phone, just a player)... What can I do, then?

Thanks!
