How do I install Google Play on my Android tablet which crashes after installing it?

Dr.Sunil Vaswani August 15, 2012

I have an Android tablet – HCL ME AM7A1 – and I would like to install the Google Play store on it as it does not come with Google Play preinstalled. However, it crashes after installing and launching it – so how can I get Google Play working on my tablet?

    The whole Google Play thing is one of the worst flubs I've seen Google make. My tablet is a year old, but not on the Google Play "supported" list -- so I can't get apps anymore! All of the apps should still be available in the old Marketplace since Google Play does not work on so many Android devices.

    I brought my son the Binatone Kidzstar Ulitimate Tablet for xmas which runs on andoid. There is a way of getting content from the google play store (without the need to root) if you own another android device with google play already installed.

    1) On the tablet download the "esfile explorer"(or similar)

    2) On the other device in my case it was a samusng galaxy s3 download "app backup and restore"

    3) Download all the games and apps you want to download on the other device.

    4) Open app backup and restore and backup the apps/games you wish to put onto the tablet.

    5) Remove the SD Card from the other device and put it into the the tablet.

    6)connect the tablet upto a pc and copy the files from the sd card onto the tablet memory.

    7) In the tablet open the ES file explorer and find the files you have just copied and touch each one and it will ask you to install them click yes and the files will be installed onto the android device.

      For using Google Play,you need to create account with it.Without log -in into play store,you cannot install apps.

    I have a tablet with the same issues. there are a few ways around this issue. has .apk files (the type of apps that run on android (example the Shazam app on your tablet or phone is an .apk file). You go to download the .apk file with your tablet and then use an .apk installer to install onto the tablet. My off brand tablet had an .apk installer on it already. I was able to install Google Maps on my tablet. this way if you have questions Google.... how to install .apk files on my android phone/tablet. FYI, I tried to install the Goggle Play .apk and it would not allow me to access the store because you have to access Google Play the first time by the app. I tried though :(

    The second option is to use 1Mobile Market which has alot of android apps. This market works the same as Google Play but has less (alot less) apps. BUT... It is better then Amazon App Store.

    This is probably due to the fact that you are using an unstable rom on your tablet. either find a rom that is completed or email the developers asking if gapps.apk is supported and what version would work with the least problems...they are usually really good about replying to these emails :)

    Hey Sunil!

    There have always been problems with running Google Play on unsanctioned devices. First, Google Play is region locked, so it won't work in all countries. Second, it is device specific. Some devices will not support

    The better alternative has been to use Amazon Marketplace, since it is not fussy about what device it's installed on and has greater regional/international availability.

    However, that said, it's possible to dodge around regional restrictions using a modified version of Google Play:

    The XDA thread in which this originally appeared in located in the link above. I would try installing that before trying another version. Good luck!

      Forewarning: using this methood "jailbreaking" can get you comletely shut out of your device network or worse. Meaning if your company catches you, they'll shut you off. I do NOT recommend this!! If you cannot find a legal solution, speak to a PROFESSIONAL!

    try older versions of google play if the newest one cause problems.

    Go to your tablet settings, select apps and choose the Google Play Store app. From there you'll be able to uninstall the app. You'll notice that the Google Play Store will return to the original factory version. Open the store and you'll be prompted to upgrade. Hope that works!

      Are you kidding me? Read the darn question before you 'answer' like this.
      The "original factory version" doesn't come with my or the asker's device

        Google play store is the way to get apps in easy way.Why would you uninstall it as it would get you in trouble of getting apps from third party sources.
