How do I root and update my Nextbook 5.5 Android tablet to use Google Play?

Bren Herring September 4, 2012

I have a Nextbook 5.5 tablet with Android 2.1 on it and need to root it to upgrade the OS to at least 2.3. I need to download and use Google Play for app downloads rather than the old and useless slide market. I know a bit about computers, but not much at all about tablets or cell phones, so can you walk me through it if possible?

My main purpose is to use a credit card reader (Square) on it for non-profit and business purposes. Thanks!

    After looking into many months for your tablet support,there are no available ROMs for your tablet.Although,you can root your tablet and forcibly install Square app,but it's not a way to make the app compatible with your device and run on it.
