How To Root Ubislate 7+ And Install Google Playstore App

As Datawind has started distributing the well known Ubislate 7 and 7+ tablet in India, there is now need to root it. The main issue with this tablet is that, it does not have a Google Playstore app preinstalled. This is due to the cost factor. Also, Ubislate by default comes with Android 2.2.2 Froyo and Datawind does not seem to have any plans of upgrades. After rooting the Tablet you can easily remove some of the bloatware apps which slows down your tablet.

The rooting app used in this tutorial is called Ubislate 7+ Multi-Tool is developed by one of the members of xda-developers.com called balamu96m.

If you do not know what is rooting, reconsider your decision before going forward. I should not be held responsible if something goes wrong in the process. You have been warned!!!

Preface:

Ubislate Tablets are manufactured in India by a company called Datawind. It is famous for its low price (as low as Rs 2000.00). It is manufactured in collaboration with Government of India's Aakash tablet initiative. As it is manufactured at a very low cost it lacks a lot of feature a good tablet would usually have. Important thing among which is:

  • Old Android Operating System - Android 2.2.2 Froyo
  • No ADB support - Tablet can not be connected to the computer making it difficult to root.
  • No Google Play store app, etc.

As u see, Ubislate does not support connecting the tablet to a computer with a data cable, the rooting process is a bit complicated.
