Hi'

 

What is the easiest way to add Google play store to receive better apps.

Also is there a way to use your own photos for the wallpaper like normal androids?

I am finding things a lot more complex and long winded on this device.... hope u can help?

Flashing the tablet with rockchip tools is the only way right now.

Have a look here for more info and a Google Play firmware.

The firmware created by us is free, you don`t need to pay any fee for it.
Any other application that you download afterwards from Google Play/Appslib, can cost or not a certain amount of money, it depends on the app.

Thanks for trying to help me.

 

 

When I download' it takes me to the Sd card then tell me its not a supported file.  I understand it may not be but unsure how I can make the tablet get round this issue.  Please can you help?

 

 

Thanks

I dont quite understand what you are trying to do.

Situation 1: If you want to update your tablet a custom firmware, the only way to flash it is:
-download the firmware
-download rockchip tools
-get your tablet in flashing mode
-install the drivers
-flash the firmware with rockchip tools

Situation 2: If you are trying to download applications that are from internet and not Google or Appslib you need to do this:
-go to settings
-security and check Unkown sources
-you need to know that downloading apps from other places than Google Play/AppsLib and other official markets can harm your tablet, by downloading viruses to it.
