I got the PS Store that came out for the Tablet S to work on the Play. However, it says "This service is not available in your country/region." I get the same error trying to buy PS1 games from the android marketplace, so I don't know if it is an error just on my phone. I'm posting this just in case it works on anyone else's play. Post your model number & software version. Like so:

Model: R800i
Version: 4.0.A.2.368 with stock kernel

Anyways the APK to the PSStore is here: http://pss.dl.playstation.net/pss/store/apk/PSStore.apk

To get it to work on your Play, you can either extract the file and remove "<uses-library android:name="com.playstation.playstationcertified" />" from the androidmanifest.xml file and repackage/resign it or (only on rooted phones):
1) Download http://www.mediafire.com/?g10lqu35b139mlb
2) Push "com.playstation.playstationcertified.jar" to /system/framework
3) Push "com.playstation.playstationcertified.xml" to /system/etc/permissions
4) Reboot
(If it doesn't work, both files need to be chmod 644 and chown root.root)
Then you can install the APK as is.

after I moved the files, I was able to install the application. nice;)

But after a reboot and start the application I get the message: An error has occurred. (8008002F)

Yup, I can do that too. Can tablet owners in America access the store? I tried most other english speaking countries and none of them work. My ultimate goal is purchasing a PS1 game and seeing how the emulator changed.

Is it possible to install a modified apk on an unrooted R800x? I'd like to try it out myself if anyone is willing to attach a working copy for testing.

Note: I'm waiting for a free way to unlock/root my phone, so please bear with my phone's lack for the time being. I'm very willing to test anyting on it that doesn't require root.

i dont know...but try setting your country of residence as Japan,and buy a game from there (600Y = around 7 or 8 usd =/ )

remember to update your phone to 2.3.4 FW , that way its 'natural' way xD

I have tried this 3 times now and have not had any luck getting this to work. Does the phone need to be on 2.3.4? Mine is 2.3.3. Also would it be possible for someone to compile this into a modified apk that we can just install? just wondering.
needs 2.3.4 to be installed with no problems, i confirmed that already..

Thanks, store is installed ok on my play (4.0.A.2.368), using the 2nd method :)
I have a JPN account although i live in Europe.
Unfortunately logging in doesn't work, it still says ''service not available in your country/region''.

are you logging in with your playstation account or gmail/Droid account?I think your Playstation account also has to be Japanese.Thankfully, i have all the 3 major accounts on PS3 so i can check it out later ...
