I had purchased Teewe 2 Dongle from flipkart during Big Billion days for ₹999/-.
For your information Teewee is a HDMI dongle just like Google chromecast using which you can play the media stored on your phone/pc on your TV with HDMI. So i wasn't expecting much other than playing my media from the phone/pc.

But to my surprise Teewe 2 is running a full blown Android 4.2.2 . You can convert your TV into android smart TV using Teewee. Just follow the instructions below:

Requirements:
1. You need a Teewee dongle (obvious)
2. You need an android phone

Thats it.

Instructions:
1. Install ES File Explorer and Handy Smart TV on your android phone.

2. Download Handy Smart TV Launcher apk from mod edit - link removed
3. Connect Teewee to your TV and power it on.

4.Open ES File Explorer and select the Android TV option from the menu. It will display a device called rkXXXXXX. click on it and Select Applications

5. From the menu select install and browse to the location where you downloaded Handy Smart TV Launcher.apk. Voila The launcher is installed on your Teewee

6.. power off and power on your teewee.

7. open handy smart tv app on your smart phone. It should have connected to your teewee by now. In case it is not connected connect it by clicking the icon on the top right side. it should turn into blue from grey. press the home button on the Handy Smart TV app. It should launch the handy Smart TV launcher. U can also launch the Handy SMart TV launcher from the ESFileExplorer app from your android phone.

How to Install Google Play Store

1.you need to have adb tools installed on your PC and should have knowledge on how to use adb.
2. type the following command on your PC.
Code:
adb connect 192.168.1.101
where 192.168.1.101 is the IP address of the teewe dongle

you should get a response as
Code:
connected to 192.168.1.101
type
Code:
adb shell
on your PC
you should get a shell prompt which is already has root access
Code:
[email protected]:/ #
Now mount the /system folder with r/w access by the following command
Code:
mount -o remount,rw -t rfs /dev/block/st19 /system
exit
unzip files in the Gapps.zip , move to /system/app on your PC and type the following commands
Code:
adb push GoogleBackupTransport.apk /system/app
adb push GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk /system/app
adb push GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk /system/app
adb push GoogleLoginService.apk /system/app
adb push GoogleServicesFramework.apk /system/app
adb push NetworkLocation.apk /system/app
adb push OneTimeInitializer.apk /system/app
adb push Phonesky.apk /system/app
adb push SetupWizard.apk /system/app
The device is already rooted but the su binary is not updated and has root access to adb shell only so to have root access to other apps push the files in Root.zip . This is an optional step only for those who need root access.
Code:
adb push busybox /system/bin
adb push su /system/bin
adb install Superuser.apk
adb shell
chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
and finally mount /system as r/o.
Code:
mount -o remount,ro -t rfs /dev/block/st19 /system
exit
adb reboot

EDIT:[DETAILED INSTRUCTION UPDATED in the OPENING POST]
Google play is easy to install. Use adb connect to connect to the teewe . u will get a shell with root access . mount /system as r/w. push the google files necessary to /system/app folder. Mount /system as r/o.

Detailed instructions will follow as i am outside on holiday.

Meanwhile enjoy Playstore, and other apps on teewee. Android TV in Rs.999

Thanks for this post. I could get the android TV functionality on my Teewe2. I have installed Kodi (XBMC) and now able to enjoy movies from my NAS. I tried installing play store but it needs Google play services to be installed. How do I get the correct version of google play services?

Press the home button on the phone app. It should launch the launcher on TV. if it doesn't work, disconnect by long press the connection icon on the phone app and reconnect by pressing once. If u make handy smart tv launcher as default launcher, teewe app will not work even if u launch it from menu.( anyway i dont think u need it now).

Expect Google Play detailed installation procedure on 27/10/15
