    This is a guide to shell root your ZiiO and install Android Market. I can't guarantee if it works or not, so please stop reading if you don't want to take any risks. You might brick your device. However reflashing the original firmware should work if something goes wrong.

    ZiiO Market Guide v1.0

    1) Download and install Java SDK Java SE Development Kit 6u26
    2) Download and install Android SDK Android SDK | Android Developers If Android SDK doesn't find Java SDK installation, press "Back" and then go to next step again. The install program seems to have a bug... :)
    3) Run Android SDK Manager in Administarator Mode. You don't need to set up a virtual device in Android SDK, just install the Android USB Driver.
    4) Locate the driver, you might find it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\temp\
    5) This is the tricky part. Open android_winusb.inf in Notepad. Locate the section where it reads [Google.NTx86] and [Google.NTamd64]. You have added the following lines at the end of the section.

    ; Creative Ziio 7"
    %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install,
    USB\VID_2350&PID_0102
    %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install,
    USB\VID_2350&PID_0102&MI_01

    (Note: If you want, ZiiO10 users can try to replace 7" with 10" and see if it works.)

    6) Save the file.
    7) Go to C:\Users\[your login name]\.android\
    8) If you can find a file called adb_usb.ini, open Notepad to add the following line

    0x2350

    9) If there is no adb_usb.ini, just copy this to a blank file and save it as adb_usb.ini

    # ANDROID 3RD PARTY USB VENDOR ID LIST -- DO NOT EDIT.# USE 'android update adb' TO GENERATE.
    # 1 USB VENDOR ID PER LINE.
    0x12D1
    0x2350

    10) Take your ZiiO and switch USB Debugging on (Settings - Applications - Development)
    11) Connect ZiiO to your PC. Don't let Windows install the driver automatically. Go to Control Panel and Devices. Locate Ziio (Unknown Device) and install the driver manually (Have Disk - go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\Temp). Ignore the warnings and choose the Android device or whatever it was called. :)
    12) Download and unzip SuperOneClick 1.7 from the end of this post: [APP]SuperOneClick v2.0 (MORE ROOTING!) - xda-developers Only 1.7 seems to work.
    13) With your ZiiO connected to PC, use Shell Root with psneuter to get temporary root access to your ZiiO.
    14) Download Set Up Google Apps (RAR) from here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=QSM6ATPB
    15) Unrar all the files to a specific folder. I copied the files to the same folder as SuperOneClick as I'm too lazy to type. Please note: It seems the file 'SetupWizard.apk' is causing problems, so don't install it.
    16) Use Command Prompt, go to SuperOneClick folder. Use the command ADB PUSH [yourfilename] [destination directory in ZiiO] to transfer files. For example:
    adb push Vending.apk /system/app

    17) After pushing the file to ZiiO, use type ADB SHELL in command prompt and type CHMOD 755 [directory/filename] to set permissions back to normal. For example:
    adb shell
    # chmod 755 /system/app/Vending.apk

    18) Do this for all the files, it takes some time. I honestly don't know if the permission, lib and framework files are needed but I did it anyway. *sigh*
    19) When you're done, reboot your ZiiO and try if it the market works.

    Ad-hoc support
    1) Turn off wi-fi
    2) Connect your ZiiO to your PC, use SuperOneClick 1.7 to shell root your tablet
    3) Open command line, navigate to your SuperOneClick folder.
    4) Use "adb pull /system/bin/wpa_supplicant" to download a backup of your original file
    5) Rename the file in your PC as "wpa_supplicant.backup" or whatever you want
    6) Download the patch (wpa_supplicant v0.5.11) from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=380322&d=1281834626
    7) Unzip the file "wpa_supplicant", and copy it to SuperOneClick folder
    8) Use "adb push wpa_supplicant /system/bin" to copy the patch to your ZiiO.
    7) To change permissions back to normal, type:
    adb shell
    # chmod 755 /system/bin/wpa_supplicant
    8) Reboot your ZiiO, switch wifi on.

    Update 17 Nov 2011: New working market version

    After the Creative update I decided to try a new version of the Market app, and it seems to work. Download from here:
    http://www.megafileupload.com/en/file/332572/Market-3-3-11-zip.html Just unzip, rename to Vending.apk and push + chmod to ZiiO.

    --

    The most difficult thing was to find the right files to a working market, but the key thing is, that Android Market really works, there are no crashes and I can install software with no problems. Wifi also works on ad-hoc mode and I can use JoikuSpot on my cell phone to connect on internet on the move.

    Sorry Creative, no more ZiiStore for me. :)

    Push only *.apk files ? What is with Framework an Lib Directory ?

    I think Push is like Copy Command ? or not

    We musst only push all files, and what is with installation ?
    Dnot install only push ?

    and after push chmod 775 alls push´ed files ?


    Other Question.

    Its possible to run root app´s on ziio with this "hack" ? like root app manager or set cpu, or all other app´s where need root acces.

    According to other forum posts in other devices, this should do it, no need to install. But if nothing happens after reboot, maybe you could use Root Explorer to navigate to /system/app and click the .APK files to install. I did install most of the files from SD card before shell root, but I'm still learning what's the difference. Maybe someone with more Android knowledge knows. :)

    About the other Framework and Lib directory, maybe they are needed, maybe not... :)

    Not sure, as far as I know things have to be done via ADB. If the programs need root access, they probably won't work.

    Maybe you could try to delete Setup Wizard .apk from system/app, use Adb shell and rm command).

    There's a file in Ziio system/app called Provision.apk which conflicts with SetupWizard.apk. So that might be why things didn't work out. Some Cyanogen people say Provision.apk isn't needed so if you want, take a copy of Provision.apk to your SD card or computer, and delete it from system/app folder.

    Anyway, these modifications shouldn't affect launcher or Task Manager. The first thing you could do is to go to Settings (if you can) and clear all of the settings for Launcher and Task Manager. I don't know what ZiiO's launcher is in /system/app but there's a file called LauncherRabbit.apk, so maybe you could check if the permissions are ok with this file and ZiiTaskManager.apk.

    And I really have to thank you for trying the guide, we'll be learning lots more all the time. Hopefully we can get your device running and help all other ZiiO users too!

    I had the same problem at reboot, trap in the SetupWizard.apk. Just kill the prog, ps then kill <processID>, followed by a rm of the apk.

    I also have the home button problem, I have to click fast twice on the back button to have the same functionality.
    I haven't find any Setting related to that stuff.
    I will look forward this evening.

    Stonik because it seems that we have all the same problem with the SetupWizard.apk, maybe you could suppress this file form the guide. Or at least told to not copy it.


    Anyway thanks for the guide, i hope we could help you to move to a Beta version of it.

    Work yours Homebutton ?

    in /system/usr/keylayout/ are 4 Files.
    ACRPC.kl, qwerty.kl, Touchscreen.kl, wm8350_buttons.kl

    I thing touchscreen.kl is for button remap.
    I try to remap buttons but home funktion still not work on oher button. Other button like Menu works remaped on other button.

    if your button work, can you upload the 4 files from /system/usr/keylayout/ ?

    I want to compare it with my files.

    My home buttons work normally. Did you check out the code.google.com link a few posts earlier?

    Here are my keyboard layout files anyway: http://db.tt/NegxDhd

    The Files are same. no diference

    I testet the solutions from code.google.com..
    No one work...


    cant find in
    /data/system/packages.xml:
    <disabled-components> <item name=&#8221;com.android.setupwizard.SetupWizardActivity&#8221; /> </disabled-components>

    or any cut cannt find setupwizard under activity.


    Today or Tomorow i try to do it agin.
    I make Facory reset and do it agin.

    If your home button work corectly, the question is what dit me worng.

    Are you sure you copy´d all files from google archive ? My google Archive have 4 Folders: lib, app,framework and premmisions.

    We know Setupwizard.apk make errors. Have you copy setupwizard.apk or not ?

    dbrems have same problem like me with homebutton. your not. mayby have you did some other steps like me and dbrems.

    I just checked and I have no SetupWizard.apk in my /app folder. I thought I had installed it before rooting from sd-card, but maybe I've uninstalled it later. So that might explain why I have no problems with home buttons. I didn't push it to ZiiO because I in my opinion it already was there.

    Edit: There's a lot of discussions going on in XDA about SetupWizard.apk and home button not working. I have to figure out what's wrong with it.

    avator, one more try before wiping everything, let's try to edit /system/build.prop file.


    1) adb pull /system/build.prop

    2) Make a backup copy of the file and rename it to build.prop.backup or something.

    3) Open build.prop and scroll to line that says"ro.setupwizard.mode=OPTIONAL"

    4) Change to "ro.setupwizard.mode=DISABLED"

    5) Save changes

    6) db remount

    7) adb push build.prop /system/build.prop

    8) Reboot

    Stonik I want to thank you so much for this guide, just got my ZiiO yesterday and not having the market was quite a letdown, so I grabbed your guide today and tried it my findings are the following:

    Just followed your guide to the letter got to one tiny problem with the usb drivers, instead of ZiiO [unknown device] it showed ZMS08 [unknown device] and it wouldn't grab the driver lines I added after a quick google search I came to the following forum post on XDA developers and got it fixed: [Q] Creative ZiiO doesn't appear on adb devices list - xda-developers

    I added the following line (with compliments to XDA developers):
    ; Creative Ziio 7"
    %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install,
    USB\VID_2350&PID_0102
    %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install,
    USB\VID_2350&PID_0102&MI_01

    This made it work, kinda weird though adding the usb driver for the 7" ZiiO but oh well it works who cares?

    Just followed your guide to the end there, and I was quite surprised after the restart I had no problems at all with wifi and no problems with my home button everything simply works.

    The market works like a charm now, thanks a lot!
