ok...I'm starting to think the problem is with my tablet (LT7033) and not the Amazon App Store.

Tonight I was going to try to root and install Google Play. I started by downloading es file explorer from scary alien's post. Everything went perfect...downloaded, installed and es file explorer was up and running.

Next I went to download the Google Play apk from SuperNoober's original instruction post. Clicked the link > directed to Drop Box site > clicked download...and here's where the problems start.

Instead of getting a "normal" download bar showing the progress, the bar just appears to be running. Kinda just showing a steady stream of loading progress. I let this go for quite some time and nothing ever came of it. The download history will just continue to show "in progress" for dl.dropbox.com.

Thinking this was odd I went back to try to download es file explorer from scary alien's post and it worked fine again. Took about 20 seconds, got the standard download bar, loaded up, complete...worked fine.

Tried Google Play apk again...same thing as before, just a running load bar that never does anything.

Also tried to download the Amazon App Store again (starting from Super Noober's post, linking to Amazon site). At this point I was just trying to download stuff. With this I got the same results as when I tried to download the Google Play apk...a running load bar that never completes or really starts for that matter.

So here's what I know....I can no longer download the Amazon App store from the Amazon site, nor any apps from the store (I've tried many). Even though I've done this a few days back and everything worked fine. I can also not download the Google Play apk from Super Noober's post.

However I CAN download es file explorer from scary alien's post? And have done it multiple times...though all this download attempting I've been testing, I've probably downloaded it 4 times throughout the testing. Each time worked fine.

idk....

Sounds like those links are just down. Dropbox has a download limit and if too many people download it then it will disable the link.

Are you sure you didn't mess around with any system files? I'll PM you

Default Edit out drop box link

Guys:

Sorry about that, I didn't know about the limitations at drop box. I found the Google Play apk version 3.10.10 (same version as the original from casperischinky) as an attached file at XDA. I have edited the guide to redirect the download. The link is...
com.android.vending-3.10.10.apk

Thumbs up Final edits I hope

I added the direct link to ES File Explorer, and changed the posts slightly to allow people to add Google Play and Amazon Appstore independently of one another. Notes added asking people to report broken links. I think we're done until mavrikmeercat and his friends over at XDA finish work on the new ROM.

Be well & happy everybody, and enjoy your new toy;

Thumbs up Very Grateful

All the work and diligence that went into this thread is much appreciated. Had some issues following the guide, but that was due to the time of night or morning for that matter I was attempting to root. 2 more to go and Grandpa will then be working on why apps won't work.

I'm back! The flu had me down for a few days.

I'm now so close I can smell it, but am having one more issue.

First off, I followed SuperNoober's directions for rooting and installing the app store on the LT7033...and FANTASTIC!!

Really couldn't have been easier and couldn't even imagine doing it without his perfect step by step instructions. Can't thanks enough for that.

So now I'm trying to log onto the google appstore. Click the app...it tells me to sign in using my gmail acct. I enter that and my password. Click next....and i get a screen saying.

"Couldn't sign in

Can't establish a reliable connection to the server

This could be a temporary problem or your android device mat not be provisioned for data services. If it continues call customer care."

Does anyone have any idea what this is? I def have a connection to my wi-fi, browser and everything else works fine. I've tried multiple times and checked my address and password. All is correct.

It does say this may be temporary, i've been trying for couple hours.

I'm so close I can smell it.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks guys. I just did a factory reset, probably something I should have done a long time ago.

Reran through the root and play store instructions, even easier and quicker the second time.

And now I'm up and running!!

Thanks to everyone for the help throughout, but BIG thanks to SuperNoober for pulling this all together...priceless.

Anyone has CWM performed on it?

Have the Proscan PLT 7035B (the box says Rockstar 2906 chip) and have rooted it following instructions from XDA.

Would love to have ClockWorkMod installed and flash CM10.

Cheers.

Default Plt 7044k

I tried this on the ProScan PLT7044K and the root method worked great! However, the google play installation does not seem to be working. Amazon installed fine, and I have rooted several different models of phones and tablets before, but the play store isn't showing up. When I copy the apk to the apps directory, the permissions are listed as not readable, which I think may have something to do with it.

EDIT: I used ES File Explorer to modify the permissions of the play store apk, and after a reboot it worked! I did have issues, since the first time I tried that, it wouldn't let me change anything, almost like I lost root. After a quick reboot though, it was working how it should. So, the 7044 does work for this method, with just a minor tweak. Thanks for the excellent guide and all the work! This is about the only place I found that had really helpful info!

@ quicksprt98, if your tab came with android 4.0.1... curtis came out with a very much improved update which can be achievable by following this thread. Aftrer which, you can come back here and follow this thread in order to root the new system.

It is much improved in many aspecs and runs so much better and stable than the ics build that the tabs came with.. I recommend all of us update to the latest 4.1.1 jellybean update for curtis klu lt7033..

[How To] Update, Unbrick/Go back to stock on LT7033

Footmouth Google play to PLT7044 using Mac?!

Like runner409, I have a ProScan PLT7044K, running JB 4.1, with Rockchip 2906 processor (similar to Curtis Klu LT7033, right?). I simply want Google Play Store on the tablet. This is my first root, and a lot of this goes over my head, but I think I'm getting the steps.

I have three problems:
1) I'm using a Macbook. I know the limitations.

2) Root RK29 Tab Toolkit won't open, or at least I don't know how to run it. I know it's .bat, and not supported in Mac. So I don't know alternatives.

3) When the tablet is in debug mode, I cannot find the driver in order to "update" the driver.

I'm sorry if this is more of a bother, but the success stories here give me hope. Any/all steps would be appreciated.

Thanks

Got my 7044K rooted, and the play store installed, but it keeps closing on me. I have checked the permissions, etc. Cleared the data, and all. Any ideas why it keeps closing on me?

Tried it again, with changing permissions to all and it works now.

Exclamation PLT7044K - no drivers for Win7-x86_64 (x64)

Greetings! I know this thread is nearly a year old, hopefully people are still watching it. I picked up a ProScan PLT7044K tablet today on the cheap and of course, no Google Play. Being a previous Android owner of an un-rooted LG Vortex and a current owner of an HTC One S (also un-rooted), I have apps I want to use, some paid for. So, I need my Google Play access!

I was able to get ES File Explorer installed as well as Amazon's AppStore without issues. The problem came when actually trying to root the device. Windows found and installed several new devices, but failed to install a device named PLT7044K, I tried to make it install the drivers from "ADB Driver Kit RK29" but it refused, flat out. So now, I am kinda stuck and confused how a few previous users using the same model as me, were able to root their devices successfully.

So notable details:

Model #: PLT7044K
Android Version: 4.1.1
Kernel Version: 3.0.8+
EM2906-722A@V05M #50
Fri Dec 7 11:44:24 HKT 2012
Build #: RK29xx_ANDROID4.1.1-SDK_V1.00_20120806
rk29sdk-eng 4.1.1_20121130

I do believe, once I get the right driver for this model, I will be good to go in using "Root_RK29_Tab_Toolkit_1.3".

Oh, also, I'm a full-time Linux user (Fedora 18) and I am doing this via a VMWare Virtual machine. I suspect this might actually be the problem and don't actually have access to a natively installed copy of Windows 7 of my own. But My roommate might, if that's what is needed, I can ask him to use his laptop.

ravensorrow,

When you follow the guide and get to the point about the driver, do not follow that, go to the device manager and click the device then update driver and select the folder from the download of the drivers, the top level one, and it will install the correct one. When you have this working and if you get google play working let me know, since google play just stops on me.

Alright! I figured out the problem! First off, I broke mine, well I didn't, it broke on me (and I know how). I returned mine and couldn't get a replacement, so I got a refund. My roommate bought two of the same tablets and I successfully rooted one of his.

Here is where I stand on rooting, it's a success. ES File Explorer successfully stays root. I copied the Google play APK to /System/Apps/ and rebooted, but no Play icon . So I manually installed it while ES File Explorer was still root and it installed, but when you go to run it. It always says "Unfortunately, Google Play Store and has stopped." And never runs.

So, still confused and slightly annoyed cause I followed the instructions to the letter and it all worked, except for Google Play.

A few questions please...

1) Does anyone know if this works on the 10" Proscan PLT1044?

2) Will your instructions work with a Mac? And if not a Mac, will it work running Windows XP on a virtual machine on my Mac?

Thanks

If you are referring to the root process, then no. A .bat script is for windows only. Mac is linux based so it would have to be a .sh script format to work in mac/linux and there currently isn't one.

Yes you could run it from a VM of XP. Assuming you use virtualbox, you would have to first install the USB add-on to virtualbox in order for it to see and use your usb ports, then inside windows , you would have to install the correct drivers as mentioned in the op above. Then you would be ready to proceed with rooting your device from the vm.

The irony in all this is this, Android OS *IS* Linux, yet we are required to use Microsoft Windows to actually root the device. An OS that doesn't even have a true root user. Windows Administrator doesn't actually give you *full* control of the system, more like managed partial control.

Same thing that was happening to me, in ES File Explorer before you copy the file change the permissions to everything. Now Copy and paste per the guide, reboot and it will be there and work. If not, simply clear the data and try again. Took me a while to get it to work, but I can assure you it does indeed work!

Here is where I stand on rooting, it's a success. ES File Explorer successfully stays root. I copied the Google play APK to /System/Apps/ and rebooted, but no Play icon . So I manually installed it while ES File Explorer was still root and it installed, but when you go to run it. It always says "Unfortunately, Google Play Store and has stopped." And never runs.

So, still confused and slightly annoyed cause I followed the instructions to the letter and it all worked, except for Google Play.

Thanks, that did it. I went to /System/App/ and changed the permissions for the Play Store's APK to 777 (rwx) for ugo (user,group,other(world)), rebooted and it worked.

My mother in-law just picked up the plt7044k tablet and was highly disappointed when she couldn't get some of the apps she wanted. I followed the root guide and it worked perfectly. Just fix permissions on the Play Store and reboot. It's running great! Thank you for this thread

Default Rooting difficulty

Wow, I know this is an old thread. Sorry.

The last poster had a PLT7044K and said rooting worked perfectly. I also have a PLT7044K, but no such luck.

It has Android 4.1, RK29.

I have a Windows 7, 64-bit PC.

I'm following the steps. Windows recognizes the driver from the zip file. Calls the device Android Composite ADB Interface. Is that right?

Rootkit Shows me the 6 things I need to do and then says "Press any key to continue". I press a key. Then it says:

"Let's begin with the work.
Waiting for your device"

And that's where it stops. Device doesn't reboot or anything. By the way, when my device boots up to the lock screen, should I unlock it? I've tried both ways. Doesn't seem to matter.

Any thoughts?

Thank you so much!
Steve.

Did you go to settings--- devlopment--- and enable usb debugging?

Also, if you have to do that still, unplug the tablet, enable usb debugging and then plug back in. It should now install the ADB Composit driver and you should be good.

If not just keep trying you'll get it with some determination. Maybe you missed a step.

If you have a question just post back. I still monitor the threads. I havent quit development on this device just dont have much time for android right now.. work/money comes first

Default Thanks, Mavrikmeercat

Thank you for your quick response! Actually, looking back at it, this thread isn't as old as I thought. It started in December 2012. I've totally got my years mixed up.

Anyhow, yes, I've got usb-debugging enabled.

I will try again tonight, but I also found something in a thread mentioned in the rooting post of this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1967699&page=4

The very last post there is a guy with Win7/64-bit, and he says he had to edit some files to make it work for his device (D2 D2-721, so not same as mine). But might I have to do the same?

Otherwise, I'll try again. I agree about work and family taking priority. I've been spending so much time on the tablet that my wife is starting to miss me.

Thanks again. I'll report back here to let you know how it goes.

Steve.

Lmao, I know all about it brother.. so much research and learning to, its actually addicting.
You have to put it on the side and just say no

I have win7 x64 and never had to edit any of the driver files so idk why you would have to. We both have the same chipset devices but these Chinese devices are a lot harder to figure out because the developers arent sticking to the android standard build guidlines. Thats why they are not registered with google and don't have gapps or Play store in the first place.

Basically, anyone with a computer and a build enviroment can build an android os from the source code. But in order to have google apps they must be registered as an android manufacturer.

Default Success!

Thank you, mavrikmeercat, and of course, SuperNoober!

I tried it again tonight and had great success!

Here's what I did differently.

#1, I plugged it up! I don't know if having the tablet plugged-in makes a difference, but maybe so...

#2, I used the directions here: Uninstall Drivers from Vista & Windows 7 to erase the existing android driver from my failed attempts.

Then I just repeated the process, and it rooted, no problem!

Amazon Apps came pre-installed on my tablet, so my goal was only to install Google Play. Google Play installed fine but would close shortly after loading. Same problem as a few others reported. I used the solution already stated in this thread: In ES File Explorer, after the copy, I long-pressed the apk file in the app directory, and selected properties. Then I checked all the boxes to make it 755. Rebooted, and it worked.

Thank you again and again!

By the way, and this is completely *COMPLETELY* off-topic, I saw an albino deer tonight on the way home from work. Completely white, head to toe, just hangin' with a few other deer. Looked like a full-grown doe. Beautiful creature! Brightened my day, and I wanted to share. :-)

Ok, thanks again!
Steve.

Ok, just to be complete...

I'd like to confirm that this method does work on the Curtis/ProScan PLT7044K 7" tablet.

Mine had JellyBean 4.1. My PC is a Win7/64-bit.

For what it's worth, this process didn't work until I plugged the tablet up. Maybe a coincidence, but once it was plugged-up, it worked fine.

I also had to change the permissions of the Google Play apk file to 755 after it was copied, to get it to run.

Thanks.
Steve.

All apps inside /system/app/ should be 755. Just go back to the folder and check the permissions of another app inside the folder and set play store the same way..

777 could be very bad if malware got a hold of it somehow. It would have full access to your system. Your whole account, system, all kinds of stuff could be compromised

I don't like Ubuntu, but I've used it. Fedora 18 is pissing me off. I'm tired of Mate-1.5.x being broke too (in Fedora). I prefer FreeBSD as my server OS of choice, desktops I'm all over the place for an OS. I have become quite enamoured with OS X of late though. I resisted the Mac Bandwagon for a long time, but I inevitably got sucked in.

I would have much preferred to find the tools provided here as shell scripts. My poor laptop cries and begs for me to take it out to the pasture and put it out of it's misery everytime I boot up my Windows VM Having the ability to do this natively in Linux would have saved me hours of troubleshooting and guesswork in Windows. Granted, the second time I rooted this tablet, I had the process down to ~15min. If I was able to do it in Linux, I know I could refine that process even more (just because I am more comfortable w/ that environment.

Hey, I'm attempting to root the PLT7044k, and can not get Windows 7 64bit to "see" the driver when I connect the tablet to the PC. I point it to the correct folder location and it gives me the "Could not find driver software..." message.

Any idea what I might be doing wrong, or a trick I could try? I looked at the post on xda about adding the device name to the inf file, and I'm not sure I'm up for that, but if it's the only thing that will work I guess I could give it a try.

I may have an xp machine I could use as well, if that would be easier.

Thanks for posting these instructions - if I can get them to work it will be a big help in getting this tablet to do what I want it to do.

Hi, chrismikehead.

First, I would like to say that I just rooted my PLT7044k with my Windows 7, 64-bit PC. No driver file editing was required, but it did take a couple tries. See my posts earlier in this thread.

Here is something I just thought of:

Look at my previous posts. I linked to a web page that tells how to delete unused drivers from your PC. Like if a faulty driver was was installed for the Android, and you want to clear it out of there so you can start over with a new driver. You can follow that link and do that to clear out any old Android drivers in case they are hidden away on your hard drive somewhere.

Then I would delete the driver zip file and all the files that were extracted from it. Get rid of that directory complete. Then re-download the file, re-extract it, and re-install it, and try again. Maybe your initial file or extraction was corrupted somehow.

I also saw that thread about editing driver files, but I was advised not to do it, and so I tried again after clearing out my old Android drivers, and it worked. No editing required.

Also, my device wouldn't root unless I had it plugged-in while I was doing the rooting process.

Best of luck!
Steve.

Steve,

Thanks for the answer. I did go in and delete the "unused" driver for the failed installation of the tablet, but may have missed some other android drivers. I also plugged in the second time around. I did not re-download the files, so I will try that.

The tablet is out of town with my son for a few days, so it will be next week before I get to try again. Thanks again for the good information.

Chris

Hi, again, Chris.

So a couple nights ago, I tried to link my tablet to my PC with the USB cable, just to transfer files. No luck at all. The PC would show me the two tablet drives, but when I'd try to open either folder, it would just spin and never open. I tried re-installing drivers and turning on and off USB Debugging and USB media device and USB mass storage, following some other threads on this issue.

I know that's a different case from what you're trying to do. I just wanted to let you know that even after my successful rooting, I'm still having issues. Also, this time when I deleted the "unused" drivers, I not only deleted them in the "Android" category, but also in the "Portable Devices" and "USB" categories. I deleted any driver that looked related to a mass-storage device. Then I re-installed. No luck, but I did want you to know that at least on my PC, it was storing drivers under those other categories as well, not just under the Android category.

Good luck.
Steve.

Hey Steve,

Just an "out there" suggestion for you and others: back in the Droid X days, there were folks that simply didn't want to mess with all of the silly USB driver issues that continue to plague us Android fans that have and use Microsoft PCs.

To get around this, folks would make bootable version of Linux on CDs or USB flash drives. Then you'd boot-up the Linux distro and perform any operations you needed to in there.

The full details of doing the above are, of course, way beyond detailing in a single post, but if you're enterprising enough and not daunted by the creation and installation process (and you know how to get around in Linux ), this might be an option for you.

Cheers!

Thanks, scary alien.

A couple years ago, I tried in a very intense and time-consuming manner to get a functional version of Linux on my laptop. I was actually pretty close with several version of Linux. It was dual-booting and everything. I just never could get Linux to recognize my wireless network. That was disappointing. I work on a Linux machine every day at the office but couldn't get that last piece of the puzzle together on my home machine.

But what you're saying might work fine without a wireless connection. I do have an old bootable Linux CD around here somewhere. Maybe I'll give it a try sometime.

In the meantime, I'm using Dropbox to transfer files between the PC and tablet. I prefer a wired connection, but it will do.

Thanks again for the tip. I'll look forward to trying it sometime.

Steve.

I cannot seem to get any drivers to load for the PLT7044K device that shows up in other devises on Vista using either method. Any thoughts?

Default Hey guys

I have a Klu LT7033

Doesnt seem rooted (Doesnt have root option in es explorer, but came with it). I dont have the box to get the additional model letter.

Win7
I installed the ADB drivers
I tired to turn off mass storage. I have three options
  1. Media device MTP
  2. Camera PTP
  3. Mass Storage
I have Media device selected.
USB debugging ON
Allow unknown sources is ON

When I run the root RK29 Tab Toolkit 1.3
I get a ton of "The system cannot find the path specified" errors.

I dont know what I am doing wrong. I am usually pretty good at this kinda thing. I rooted my nexus 4 with no issues...

Can anyone help a gal out? Thanks in advance!

Thanks to everyone who did the leg work, creation, and support in this thread.

I was able to very easily and successfully root the Proscan PLT7044k running Android 4.1.1.

I rooted the tablet using my XP desktop after installing the required drivers I found from the arctablet news site mentioned in the other thread here at Android Forums -

[How To] Update, Unbrick/Go back to stock on LT7033

Before I found that driver package it was giving me a bear of a time, if you are having driver issues please try that driver package as it has folders for all the windows OS's included.

Using the included rockchip usb driver and flash tool in that package I was able to flash the proscan with the default firmware as a test. Simple instructions are at the bottom of the post.

After rooting the tablet a few moments ago I can confirm the same USB driver from arctablet package was quickly accepted as the ADB driver with the tablet in USB debug, and the entire root process was easy as pie using the R29 rootkit posted in this thread.

Very many thanks, now on to getting play store on it.

I'll try to answer any questions people have in a timely matter but please understand I am very busy right now work wise and may not respond for a day or two at most.

Edit -

Now have Play store up and running, I did have to alter the google play apk file permissions, dumped the dalvik cache and reboot for it to take.

For those curious about the permission settings in ES Explorer, long press on the com.android.vending apk in your system folder while ES is root privileged.

Select Properties, click the change button.

Thank you so much for sharing this information. I was so frustrated with my Klu because of how limited it was by not having those two apps. The instructions were really easy to follow and within minutes, I had the amazon apps up and running. Can't wait to get Google Play!! I purchased two books when I first got this for Christmas and was never able to download them because I didn't have the google play app. Now I'll be able to download and read them!

For some reason the link for the play store seems to be down! Is there anything special about the play store apk provided? I've been fighting this LT7033 for hours now and the play store just crashes as soon as it loads

Are you on ICS 4.0 or jellybean 4.1?

Did you install cwm from the link? If you did then you can install a zip for CyanogenMod gapps from here.

For jellybean 4.1.1

For ICS 4.0.1


Reboot into cwm and install zip from sdcard
Choose zip from sdcard
Select the gapps downloaded zip
Select yes
Let it install
Then wipe data/factory reset
Then reboot and enjoy your new Google device :-)
