How can I download Google Play to my Nextbook tablet?
Question by Le Ann Ringma /

I bought a Nextbook tablet running Android, but I can’t seem to get Google Play to download to it. The sales associate told me that Google Play was supported, but it doesn’t seem to work, so what is wrong?

      Nikhil,

      the process is with rooting, a bit risky for a newbie or a non-techie. the one I have described above is without any rooting and works most of the time. :)

    if you can install on your specific hardware, perhaps to root or to the change the firmware if possible.

    you can consider other sites to download applications

    NextBook has the following range of Tablets :

    Classic Series

    next2
    next3
    next5
    next6

    Premium Series

    Premium7 (3 models)-> Premium7 Resistive, Premium7SE, Premium7SE with Google Play
    Premium8 -> Premium8SE
    Premium9 -> Premium10SE

    Unfortunately, only one model, the Premium7SE with Google Play is clearly mentioned to support the Google Play. So kindly check out with the vendor. However, if you have a model without Google Play, you can try this :

    We have lot of similar low cost Android 4.0 ICS tablets in which the manufacturers do not give access to Google Play. My friend brought one such tablet from HCL (a Indian brand) known as the HCL ME U1 tablet. Yesterday we successfully installed and accessed the android marketplace on it without doing any rooting or custom ROM stuff or anything so the warranty on the device is intact. You can give it a shot. First search Google and download these APK files :
    1. GoogleServicesFramework-signed
    2. OneTimeInitializer-signed
    3. SetupWizard-signed
    4. com.android.vending-3.1.3-signed (For this last one you can try the latest Google Play Store APK file, though I haven’t tried it myself, so not sure if it will work or not, the one suggested here is a old version, which has been tested and tried and works)
    Once you have done that, go to your tablet setting and enable Unknown sources under security. Now tap and install the four APKs mentioned above in the exact sequence mentioned (this is very important and need to be followed). Once you have installed the four APKs, un-tick the Unknown Sources option under security in Settings and then reboot your tablet. The start-up process will take much more time now (in some cases upto 45 minutes) and once it is completed, a small window will come-up with the option of a launcher and setup wizard. First tick the below dialogue which says always use this as default and then select the launcher. Now you should find the android market icon in the app drawer or work-space. Enable your internet connection and tap it. First I will ask you for a Google Account. If you already have a GMail account, select existing or otherwise select new to create one. Once you have finished this step, you should logically have an access to the Google Play Store.
    Kindly give a feedback of how did it go. This at-least worked for my friend’s tablet and he is a very happy man now.
