Do you know if this would work in the Archos 9 G2. I'm struggling to find out how to get market in to it.
Went smooth on my 8125
Though I am having an issue with a lot of apps where it is telling me "this app is not compatable with your phone" With more than half the ones I'm after.
Thank you for this, but I followed the steps carefully and now my Sansui Lifepad 7 hangs. I am unable to reset it and it does not go past the "ANDROID" sign on the start up page. Please, please help;-0
I followed all the proper steps to get the android marketplace but now the screen is stuck on the "welcome to MID8024". I'm pressing the android to begin the setup but its not responding. it won't even go back to the home screen...i'm getting rather irritated and i need help. i've used the reset button on the bottom but everytime it boots the same problem occurs
I read with attention you post.
But my tablet Corby Kyros 8127 v.2.3.3 doesn´t install well market.
At click on market icon it open and close again.
any solution ?
My husband got me a Coby MID 8027 for Christmas, I couldn't find a reference to this series in the forums, apparently it's made by Coby Germany and I did see it on Amazon Germany. I tried the above methods to install android market, downloaded the zip file and installed the first five apk as instructed, rebooted my tablet and it got stuck on the android welcome screen. I hadn't yet installed the market.apk. the soft reset did not solve the problem and I had to do a factory reset. Anyone had the same problem? Is there another method that I can try without rooting the tablet?
I'm considering getting a Coby Kyros MID8125-4G, can anyone tell me if this guide will work for getting the Android App Store on that device? It runs Android 2.3. http://www.amazon.com/Coby-8-Inch-Android-Internet-Touchscreen/dp/B004QPAKSW/
Have that same one and had no issues with the install at all (followed the steps in the 8th post down in this thread, in the order that gave).
There is one small issue here. This tricks android market into thinking your device is an android phone and it's gotta be a real old model one because a ton of the apps come up as "incompatible with your device."
Thanks for the information, it has boosted my confidence in buying this device.
I think there's a fix for the problem you're experiencing, it involves editing a file in the Android Market and changing the data value to some newer phone like the Nexus S. Take a look at this: Free Your Android - How to edit your build.prop file with a file manager
great link! will give it a shot. There was one app I really wanted that was exclusive to the android market, really only reason I bought a tablet was to be able to use that app. Ended up being one that I couldn't buy cause it wasn't compatable. I ended up just google'n 'app-name.apk' and found someone who put it up on mediashare and got it on my 8125 and it worked without any probs so there definitely wasn't an actual compatibility issue.
Had to repeat the procedure twice but finally got it to work. Thank you!
I'll throw my 2 cents in here, just in case anyone else runs in to the same thing that I did. I'm in the IT field, and I've had a handfull of off brand Andoid tablets come through my shop recently. None of them have the market or any useful apps, so I'm assuming this is a licensing thing? Cheap tablet = cheaper version of the Andoid OS, or what?
Several of these tablets were "Impression" brand (May be made by Leader), and one I can't remember the brand on. I followed the directions above and got an error when I ran the market app, after rebooting.
If you get an error when you try to run the market app, just reinstall "vending.apk" and "marketupdate.apk". I didn't even bother uninstalling them first, just run the installer and install those two files again, confirm the 'Overwrite' prompt and you're good to go. Once I did that the market app fired right up, without another reboot.
Not sure what is hanging up, but it's an easy fix. I thought since I'd seen it consistently on the Impression tabs, it might be worthwhile to share. =)
Works on my 7012 ... I need to do more research on whether the market is displaying ONLY compatible apps or if it just hasn't been updated yet...
I bought to gift someone the MID7012 Coby Kyro tablet. After discounts and sales I paid $69! Not bad for a tablet instead of just ereader. The step by step instructions you provided were perfect. The only hiccup was my unfamiliarity with the device so to find the files after extracting took a few tries. But completed in the order outlined and now the recipient will love the tablet. I was able to start her with simple notepad apps. Apps for the kids. Avi players. Thank u.
