Android Market on HCL Me tablet

Install Android Market in HCL Me Series Tablets X1, AE7-A1 and AM7-A1

| 56 Comments

HCL Me Series tablets are one of the cheap tablets available in the market. One dis-advantage everyone saying is this tablet does not have Android Market, instead it is having a custom HCL market. What users dont know is installing Android Market in your device is very easy because your device is already rooted. Yeah ROOTED!!. You can also install any app which need root permissions. There are lots of necessary, useful applications in that list go check them out at market.

Android Market on HCL Me tablet

To install android market in your HCL Me tablet, you need to have adb installed and configured on your system. (We’ve already covered that in one of our previous post, here. If you are in windows, you need to have necessary drivers for your device, which we don’t know where to get it. So we recommend using adb for this device on any GNU/Linux system.)

To install market, follow the steps.

  1. Connect your device using USB cable.
  2. Open terminal and type “adb devices” and confirm that your device recognized on adb.
  3. Download latest Android Market, from here . Or you can download latest g-apps zip. and extract the contents (apps will be at folder system/app/Vending.apk).
  4. adb push /system/app/Vending.apk (This will copy market apk file to your device)
  5. Reboot.
  6. Done!. Login with your gmail account to get market access.

If your device don’t have any other google standard apps (like gtalk), copy the necessary file from the g-app zip file to /system/app folder on your device.
