    Questions About 9740-8

    Hi everyone, got a new 9740-8, and I have rooted many Motorola droid telephones, but not a tablet. I've read the following thread: READ FIRST: Development Index and Root Utility and I was wondering if rooting would enable any of the following on the 9740.

    1. Will it enable location services so apps (weather, maps, etc.) can find my current location? I have google location servies checked under system settings, but it can't find my location.

    2. Use video calling in Skype? I have skype downloaded, but there's no option to test my camere so I don't know if video calling works.

    3. I've gotten used to using 1mobile, amazon app store and slideme for my apps, so I don't need to root for gapps, however, if the rooting method is pretty foolproof I wouldn't mind having gapps

    Grea site for information. Thanks for help in advance.

    Just keep what you got, there is more to getting location to work than rooting, honestly rooting itself doesn't do anything. It just provides you the ability to modify your tablet, unrooted tablets can't make modifications.

    Getting network location services running is definitely not for the faint of heart. It requires tearing apart critical Android files to make changes, which is more advanced than simply rooting. It took me a few hours just to edit one Android file, because I had to do all the edits manually in Windows.

    Vampirefo's advice is sound: stick with what you have. You can use fake GPS apps on the Play Store to simulate network location, but obviously they won't take positional changes into account.

    Looking for a way to enable Location Services on my MID9740-8 and found this thread. Just so i understand correctly, is there any way to ger network locations services to work on the 9740? I'd like to use it for google maps and for location finder apps in case I misplace my 9740. Also, i already rooted following your instrutions from your other threads. Thanks.

    That link requires registering at the site. Try Location Services instead. The changes can be done in Windows, but it will take longer as the edits have to be done by hand due to Windows not understanding difference files.

    That is because the site the quoted post links to isn't functioning properly. Your options are these:

    1. Make the edits manually (what I did for the 9742 framework)
    2. Download and install one of my tweaked 9742 framework files.

    The 9740 and 9742 are essentially identical in terms of Android itself, so the 9742 framework should work in your 9740. However, and this is imperative, make a nandroid backup BEFORE you start.

    well i was hoping that fixing the location services would be a simple fix on my 9740 but it looks like I will have to do without it until I learn a whole lot more about android
    I just wanted it to show my location so the videos on the nfl app would play
    I can't seem to get any of the fake location apps to work on it either is there a trick to that ? if I could fake it it would be enough for me
