    Hi there
    I installed Google store on my tablet.It really went well got the store signed into my google account perfectly.
    However i noticed the camera stopped working.I followed all the instructions from RedDear.
    when i installed the drivers they didn't seem to do much one failed the second poped up a black screen and the third promted a permission box.
    Is there anyway to solve this problem by downloading a file or anything i can do in recovery mode?
    Would be greatfull for any help.

    Did you guys do a system dump before changing the ROM on your tablets?

    If you did, vampirefo has a post on how to go back to stock using the dump. If you didn't, there are versions of the stock ROM available in the Development Index sticky. They came from my device and require Clockworkmod to install. However, there's no guarantee that they will fix the problem, which is why I hope you guys did a firmware dump.

    Hi and thanx for the reply. Hmm no I did not do a system dump. When I rooted I used the method that steev posted with Google play installed in a cfw of ics probs not the best way but I didn't find way of just rooting. Thanx

    I recommended going back to stock so that you could start over. There may be fixes in the 9742 MBR and Other Problems Post Here thread, but as there are three different hardware versions of the tablet there's no guarantee those fixes, if present, will work.

    Then you didn't search thoroughly enough. The sticky at the top of this forum has a rooting tool which covers rooting, system dumps, and custom recoveries.

    Hi thanks again. shame there is no work around everything else works great . Hmm ok so going back to stock Rom. i must admit i am a bit of a noob at this tablet lark and It don't look that straight forward, something about opening adb shells and typing commands. Maybe I am being a bit dunce. Any help would be great. Thank you.

    Install Clockworkmod if you haven't already and flash this zip from this thread with it. That flashable zip is based upon my dump, which uses different drivers from Steev's ROM, and thus might fix your problem. Once you are back to stock, you can then root if the stock ROM isn't already rooted and install an ICS Google apps package from Goo.im Downloads - Browsing gapps to get the Play Store on the tablet. After that, once you feel comfortable with the prospect of changing system files, you can then install the tweaks in my signature which will help improve app compatibility and also allow network location to work.

    Links to our Clockworkmod recovery images are in the sticky. You cannot get them off Koush's site as they were not made by Koush. You cannot use ROM Manager for the same reason.

    If you know how to run a batch file, then you should be able to run my tool, which is located, along with everything else, in the sticky at the top of the forum.

    Thanks for all your help. I am along the lines of the other chap on this thread I thought I was good at all this stuff but I have to say that this tablet have got me a bit stumped. Not sure what to download, put where and run what. Just seem to be going round in circles reading. I am just not getting it and I am getting a bit frustrated. Thanks again for the help I will sit back and take a breather than have another go.
