    ok so i just bought this tablet for my son because it is cheap... $69.99 - 10% (minus $7) came to $62.99 plus tax

    here are the specs

    RK29SDK
    Model PLT7035-PL
    Android 4.04
    Kernel version 3.0.8+
    Build Number rk06

    Manual is here
    Item # PLT7035 | ProScan


    All i want to do is get the google play store to load and work but i cant seem to figure out how to do that.
    All the searches i do bring up that damb "askmefast.com" in the hundreds. someone needs to take that website out. it is annoying and useless...

    anyway if someone knows how to fix this thing so that i can get the app store working then i would be happy.
    It comes with getjar that sucks and you can side-load the amazon store but the play store wont load.

    My son already had one cheap tablet that got broken so he already has several purchesed apps in the play store that i would like to get loaded onto this tablet if possible.
    I tried this but it didn't work, Market Fix (All APPS - Uploaded File) (yes i know it is for a different tablet, this is what he had, figured it was worth a shot, but it cant find the drivers for this thing.) figured providing the link might be a good starting point for someone that has a clue unlike me...

    also looked at this

    xda-developers - View Single Post - [Q] Polaroid Tab

    but i am lost


    Edit

    I would say stay clear of this this thing.

    I followed these directions to create my own SDK Drivers after the RK29 drivers didnt seem to work.
    http://dl.xda-developers.com/attachd...nch-Tablet.pdf

    the device will not give up its id when i run the ADB Devices command. so i thin it is locked down some how.
    Doing further research i read that some Chinese tables are locked down like this but i have not found a way to hake around this.

    So i am going to return it.

    i would return it and order the AGPTek TP10 which is a 7". amazon, newegg, read reviews - note that a'zon has a number of entries for the same device but one of them has garnered by far the most reviews. I'll be posting a new thread on the unit. 'tis a sleeper that might break the mold.
    Store works perfectly, no issues. fast enough. hdmi. microSD. decent screen. sturdy build

    GOT IT!!! Here's how me done it (basically follow instruction on xda-developers.com, topic Proscan PLT-7035-PL Root and install GAPPS)

    1. Get the tablet to connect to PC running XP:
    Download Android SDK from google, install and connect ... nothing shows up. Gotta fix two problems here:
    (a) I need an adb driver. Got ADB driver from PdaNet for Android, install failed ... Finally got ADB driver to install with instruction on tomshareware.com, topic Installation Failed Access Denied (Installation failed, access denied - Security-Admin - Windows-XP). Now device show up in xp's device manager. Still, running adb device shows up empty list ... I need to do one more thing:
    (b) add PROSCAN device ID, and also google's id, to file "adb_usb.ini" in "c:\docume~1\<user>\.android":
    0x2207
    0x18d1
    follows instruction on forum.xda-developers.com, topic: USB Vendor ID's - Make your Android devices work in a single machine together ([FIX] USB Vendor ID's - Make your Android devices work in a single machine together - xda-developers)

    2. Root the device, basically acquire root access:
    tried SuperOneClick, not work. Instruction on androidforums.com, topic root-one-click-how-get-adb-running-root (http://androidforums.com/kindle-fire...eroneclick.htm) ... no luck here, SuperOneClick didn't work for me, hang on step #7.
    I got success rooting with "ICS Root Unlocker 1.0". Just make sure to wait for reboot several times during the process. It comes up blank couple times and scared me, but give it a few minute to make sure I press key and it continue, eventually comes up fine, ROOTED !

    3. Now try install PlayStore ... followed instruction by "shootmeplz" posted below ... IT WORKED ! Got Root Explorer (2.21.1).apk, Google Play Store (3.8.16).apk, and gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip from 4shared.com (4shared folder - My 4shared)
    Just make sure you follow the instruction on xda-developers.com, topic: Proscan PLT-7035-PL Root and install GAPPS (http://=http://forum.xda-developers.....php?t=1993013) - TO THE LETTER !.

    Many thanks, to the many Masters above !!!

    I followed this and the other procedure over at xda developers for rooting the proscan tablet. I've followed everything to a T. Achieved a root and had su installed. Copied the system folder over from the extracted gapps folder to the / directory using root explorer and all i get is an error saying that "unfortunately, play store has stopped working" and nothing more. Not one of the other google apps are also installed and or working as well.

    Please help....

    I used the Vending 3.9.16.apk from thread in xda-developers

    The above is copied from my post there - all credits to respective authors and thread starters:

    Cool Re: Proscan Android 7&quot; running ICS

    To do this with Linux, I recommend opening a Virtual Machine running XP.
    That is what I usually do anyhow.
