  1. I nearly did everything offered in all google searches. nothing works successfully for google play to work in HCL ME U1.
    Installing Android SDK and running ADB shell etc. also sometime does not allow file to be copied to system/app file and it’s very tedious thing if you are not familiar with java and linux commands.
    There seems to be some restriction by HCL in startup for disabling google play.
    following is the option which worked for me and very easy and using which so fart I have installed about 100 applications form google play and using my HCL ME U1 without any problem
    1) Install JDK in PC. You may also require HCL ME connect for drivers of HCL U1.
    2) Install Android commander (PC program. download and install from net)
    3) using android commander Copy android apk file in system/app folder. also copy the same apk to SD card folder.
    4)Now when you restart tab it read as ‘android upgrading’ , but soon yo will get message “Unfortunately google play stopped working”.then try open google play it will show an error “unfortunately google stopped working” again
    6) Now go to you SD card where you have google play apk
    7) Double tap on that and install google play. will give message that you are replacing main application etc. say ok.
    8) Now google play will work/download/install any application from marketplace. now google play will work like anything.
    9)the moment you shutdown or reboot tab you will start getting “Unfortunately google play stopped working” message again
    10) So whenever you want to use google play double tap and install google play from sd card. for that time being it will work until you reboot or shutdown and start.
    so use that way it hardly takes 5-6 seconds to install google play apk from sdcard whenever you start tab.
    PLEASE NOTE it is very important that to have android.apk in root of system/app folder. without that it will not work.
    — What I feel is that HCL has made some restriction by disabling something in startup. Anyway it takes only 5 seconds to install google play apk from sdcard. and for that time it works just pefect. i tried all other way but this is the only way it works.

      • I really want to use this- and I’m eager to psarhcue the full version, but I downloaded from here and it’s a .zip file not a .apk file. My tablet can’t read .zip files and I don’t know how to rename them as .apk. I can’t get it from the market because I don’t have access to wifi, but I really want to replace the pesky glitchy player on my Android tablet! If anyone has a suggestion I’d really appreciate it!

    • Boss…. when I conected hcl me u1 tab to my system I could see the vduf folder in my computer…. when in android commander its not detected.. could u pls tell me wat I did wrong…

      I also tried keeping tablet on and connectef to system

    • the easiest way is to install phonesky.apk (google play.apk) by using android commander and then rebooting the tab and then re installing the apk file i used this procegure and i insalled it and and i didnt have to reinstall it after it says google play has stopped working :)

  2. Hi. My god from the procedure listed above it seems really scary to install google play on your HCL ME U1 tablet pc. But even I am looking forward to download it. I tried whatever is mentioned above. Tried alot, so many times that my tablet started heating up. Google play it shows is not compatible for my device. I don’t know what is going wrong? May be there are some more settings that I need to look into it. Please can some one provide an easier way to install Google Play on HCL ME U1 tablet pc, it would be really helpful. Thanks in advance.

  3. Thanks to those who given the instructions to install play store on hcl u1 ,But only problem i suffered is once it’s rebooted all my data is lost and i need to regather them once again SO, if you are planning to install play store you better be save your data on your pc.

  4. it’s me again please note that if your tablet is manufactured after 09/2012 please donot follow the procedure cause HCL has changed it’s configuration you can see on it’s covering box it has 1gb ram not 512 and 4000mhz battery. if you install with above procedure you will find some problem like it shows 400 mb ram ,in status bar it stop to show battery %,battery indicator when goes green does not turn off even it is taken out of charging ,most of the times when it is powered of or rebooted it freezes. And i request some one to give another procedure to install google play

    • Hi,
      I am also facing same issue. One solution is you can download 1Market apk from internet and install it in ur tab. it has all the applications. Otherwise you download the apk files on ur pc and then install in HCL. Google play will create alot of problems in hcl me U1 with 1GB ram.

      HCL SUCKS!!!
