I need some help. I own a digital photo frame GoClever Zoom.me which is based on Android 4.2.2.
It is rooted and USB debugging is on. I managed to install standard launcher but unfortunately there is no GApps installed on this device.
I'm able to boot it in recovery mode but there is no hardware buttons on the device and therefore I'm not able to select anything from the recovery menu.
Does anyone have a clue how can I install GApps on it in order to have full access to Google Play market ?

This is a tech info from MTK tools:

"Google translate from Polska"
http://zoom.me/files/manual_pl.pdf

The procedure is intended for the factory installed version of the ZOOM.ME application 07.10.2014. Enter the menu / o ZOOM.ME/, then 8 times click the field serial number, the device will restart again. rebooting, select the menu again / o ZOOM.ME/ and 8 times click in the serial number field, the Settings view in the Android operating system will be launched. from any computer and via a USB cable. It allows you to perform many operations, for example copying files from, and to the device's memory, installing and uninstalling applications, managing processes, making backups, and many other advanced operations

ps: in the english manual no any info about ADB

BTW, i've installed a few GApps but it doesn't work.
And i have firmware from 2015 so this trick doesn't work also.

I've installed Total_commander.apk using Phoenix Suit

Then I've changed /system/build.prop file adding at the end (to see software keys back, home):
qemu.hw.mainkeys=0

And installed Nova Launcher.
It looks better now.

Helpful commands from ADB:
Back button:
adb shell input keyevent 4

Open browser:
adb shell input keyevent 64

Settings:
adb shell am start -a android.settings.SETTINGS

Hey,

Can you tell me how did you manage to edit build.prop and add ' qemu.hw.mainkeys=0'?
Mine is being restored after reboot.

Could you please share your custom ROM you prepared?
