...."Its a long shot Jim, but it might just work!"

my android tablet is a Chinese clone (mercury) and as such does not have access to google apps , it tells me 'You don't have any devices.'!
Ive spent the day trawling the net for solutions, I've rooted it (in a good way) cleared caches etc and edited the build prop to try and fool google into thinking its another device, but to no avail. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

please please please, could someone that knows what they are doing possibly download, save and send me the apk file (or a link to) for the following app so i can just load it manually?
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... ller&hl=en
:oops: I dont even have the amp yet I just want to see the app working and got obsessed :evil:

firstly, thanks for trying.
? maybe ..system/data/apps. may need a file manger like astro or es file manager, then copy /paste to sd card or similar?
This is guesswork- android is new to me :?

edit: quick google gets this... http://www.howardforums.com/showthread. ... o-Computer
may need a backup program to save the app as an apk. :?

pleeeeeeease dont download anything youre not certain of - wouldnt want you to brick your phone/tab :shock:

again i'm no expert either, but could you download it onto a sd card and install it from there through a file management program.
