The installer doesn't support this tablet right now but I'll try and see if I can assist Bagpuss with getting support added. It shouldn't be too difficult to add.

Hi,
I am about to buy the Gemini Q97 9909 and would be really grateful if you could modify this program to work for it please?
I've used it for the D7 and the D71 and it worked a treat... thankyou for the time and effort you have put in, it's much appreciated.
Kind Regards, Simon

 

 

 

...Oops, My Gemini Q97 arrived this morning, switched it on and it has Google Play Store on it !!!

My appologies...Thanks anyway.

Regards, Simon

I have just signed up to this site for the sole reason of thanking the OP for his epic skills in creating the hack for the Gemini devices.

 

I just purchased a D10 for my 5 year old son as a cheap and cheerful introduction to tablets, it will be more than adequate for his limited needs and if it gets broken im not going to lose much sleep over it ;)

Imagine my horror when after downloading the App store installer (as per other tabs i have used) The devices rom flat refused to allow it to run.

 

Im a moment of sheer disgust, i began to re box it ready for return to the retailer....Then it dawned on me. "I cant be the only person to have issue with the lack of Google app store on a google lead device !!"

 

And then i found you guys :)

Thanks again and it's people like you that keep people like me sane ;)

Just been asked about the Q97 9909 device. I dropped the author of the play installer app a message about adding support but you should be able to install google play onto this device manually.

 

The device should have Android 4.2.2 installed so download this file directly on the tablet itself, or copy it to a microSD card on the tablet. Please ensure you have the zip on the microSD card and not in the internal storage. https://www.dropbox....ystore.1000.zip

 

Once the file has been copied to the tablet, switch it off. Make sure it is unplugged then hold down the VOLUME+ button and the power button to turn the unit on. You may have to depress the power button then press & hold it again for the unit to switch on. Continue to hold the volume+ button when the screen lights up but stop pressing the power button. The unit will now show a green robot image with a warning triangle.

 

Stop pressing the volume+ button.

Now press the power button then quickly press the volume- button and you'll see a menu. Stop pressing the power button once the menu shows. 

 

Now you can use the volume buttons to move up and down the list and the power button to select. Move down to the option that says to "apply update from external storage"

Press the power button when you have selected the option, then move to the zip file you have copied to the tablet then press power to select.

Finally move to the yes option then press power.

 

The zip will now be installed onto the system and you'll be dropped back to the reboot option, Press power to reboot.
 

 

Sorry for the instructions being complicated.

I'm with Nick (vidalbabboon) above. I signed up to say thanks to Mr Bagpuss and Flibblesan. Many thanks for this app which installed flawlessly.

I installed it from the dropbox link but had to add Google Play Services as well in order to get PvZ2 working.

It makes me wonder how many hoops Google put in front of tablet makers in order to be "compatible" with Play.

Thanks again, guys.

Google require something like £80,000 per device to be licensed to carry Google services. Some manufacturers choose not to pay the costs but as we saw with Argos, Google do catch up and do start legal action.

I don't blame Gemini for doing what they've done and I blame Google entirely. Amazon are taking good advantage of the situation.

Thanks for this!  Unfortunately I cannot get it (q97-hd) to the recovery/installer menu.  I get the little android and the little red ! triangle, but cant get any further.  Tried power + Vol- in all sorts of combinations but no luck, I have to wait for that screen to time out and the tablet reboot before it will work again.

 

Any advice?
