I just brought this from Groupon from RM499, and but unfortunately it did not come with the android market apps and apparently it can’t be installed also.
So after surfing the net and trying for at least more than hours, I have managed to installed the Android market and downloaded Angry Birds.
Just want share how to troubleshoot in case you are stuck currently as I don’t think many is familiar with DOS command nowadays.
You need to download 2 files first from here:-
a) http://www.mediafire.com/?ql9ba6vaja7lbj9 (GAPPS package, filename is gapps-20110103)
b) http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html (Filename is android-sdk_r15-windows)
It will be in zip file format, so you need to extract out the files from the zip.
The first one, you will get two folders named “META-INF” and “system” after unzip.
For 2nd file, after unzip you will get “android-sdk-windows” folder. Open this folder to find “SDK manager.exe”.
Double-click to run SDK Manager and internet access will be needed. A screen will prompt up listing files to be installed (as shown below). Untick all and choose this >Android SDK platform-tools, Revision 9″.
Note: You will need to choose Extras > Google USB Driver Package (as shown above) as well as this is the driver for your PC, if not, you will not be able to detect the device later under command prompt below.
1 new folder named “SDK Manager.exe” is created, called “platform-tools” in the android-sdk-windows folder. Open “platform-tools” folder and copy all the files in this folder to a new folder in the root of Windows (ie. directly under Drive C eg c:\adb)
Now go back to the unzipped “GAPPS” folder -> “system” -> “app” and copy the following files:
Paste all the above copied files into the adb folder you created earlier.
Go to your Nextbook P7 -> Settings -> Applications -> Development -> check “USB debugging”.
Hook your Nextbook P7 up to your PC by USB, make sure the driver is installed. If not, Click Start, click Run, and then type “devmgmt.msc” (without the quote)
Update driver if you see any error mark there. The driver is located at C:\ASDK\android-sdk-windows\extras\google\usb_driver if you have selected the extra> usb when you install under SDK Manager above. You need to reboot your pc if you just install this driver.
After the driver has been installed and your PC recognizes your Nextbook P7: “Start” ->in WinXP: “Run” -> type “cmd” (without quote). When the command prompt (black screen) pop up
in Win7: type “cmd” (without quote) in the search box. Click on “Command prompt” on the list above. A black box pops up. “Type cd \” and press enter. Then Type “cd c:\adb” (without quote) then press Enter.
Type “adb devices” (without quote) – if your nextbook P7 detected, it should return with a string of numbers / letters. If not recognized, nothing is listed.
This show if it can’t detect any adb device.
If everything is set, type “adb install GoogleBackupTransport.apk” (without quote) then press Enter. This command installs that specific .apk (apk = Android’s installation programs). You should see a few lines followed by the message “Successful”.
Repeat this process for all the .apk listed above.
After all .apk have been installed, type “adb reboot” (without quote).
Your Nextbook P7 will reboot and you can unhook the USB cable.
Tada, the Android Market is inside your Nextbook Premium 7 now.
