I got Movie Studio(Video Editor) working on A500 here it is...

Requires root

Just move the apk to /system/app, set the permissions and restart the tablet...

Works ONLY with recorded clips

And, if you can't write to the system partition, you need to remount it RW. I understand Root Explorer will do this, but I couldn't get Root Explorer to install.

From the shell you would do something like this:

mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mmcblk0p3 /system
cp VideoEditor.apk /system/app/
chmod 644 /system/app/VideoEditor.apk

PLEASE NOTE: The /dev/block/mmcblk0p3 MAY be different for your device. You can run "mount" at the prompt and look for where /system is mounted

Also, it lists in your menu as "Movie Studio" - took me forever to find it because I was looking for "Video"

It's working fine...
I used RootExplorer (mounted rw) , apk copied to system/app and permissions modified with RootExplorer (added execute to owner and group) then reboot A500 (off then on) and I used again RootExplorer to install apk.

Can you make Polaris Office from the Transformer work?
I've pushed it to system/app but when I select something or try to create something it FCs.

great job !! thanks a lot!

i was also wondering if the same could work for polaris office, which is apparently much better than quickoffice or any other

Hey All,

I found this thread when looking for the Movie Studio app from my Xoom after it did the 3.1 update as it appeared to be missing. After I installed the apk from this forum, I then noticed that the app appeared twice in my App Drawer. Further research uncovered /system/app/VideoEditorGoogle.apk and /system/app/VideoEditorGoogle.odex

I'm attaching for your use the VideoEditorGoogle.apk file, the permissions on it are 644 (U:RW, G:R, O:R) which can be executed with chmod 644 /system/app/VideoEditorGoogle.apk

I wonder if this is any different? The file size is slightly smaller....
