This short blog is for those android developers who which to install the Google Play Services and the Google Pay Store apps on the RiotBoard !!.

 

So the first we need is to download this applications:

 

GoogleLoginService.apk - www.dropbox.com/s/lfde3juixuy88rg/GoogleLoginService.apk

GoogleServicesFramework.apk - www.dropbox.com/s/9kurwyhbbuecaea/GoogleServicesFramework.apk

Phonesky.apk - www.dropbox.com/s/9x8924gtb52ksn6/Phonesky.apk

 

Then in order to install them, we will push them into /system/app, but first we must remount the file system and give the necessary permissions

to the /system/app directory. For this we will need the debug terminal through a cable from your pc to the J18 port on RiotBoard,

check this if you don´t know how (http://www.element14.com/community/thread/33742/l/how-do-i-access-the-terminal).

And then with PuTTY or HyperTerminal (check the manual on page 42) and type these commands:


- mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock0 /system

- chmod 777 /system/app


The push we will do it through adb tool, in windows cmd we type


- adb push Each_of_the_3_apk_files.apk /system/app/

 

Once we did that we can download the Google Play services app - www.dropbox.com/s/bh058hbrelccfsr/com.google.android.gms-2.apk

and install it by typing  "adb install C:\PathToTheApp\com.google.android.gms-2.apk"

 

Now you just need to run the play store app and register your existing account or create one and that´s it !!! you can start downloading as many

apps as you want !!.
