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.

    Dear Amogh,
    Thanks for the post.Has anyone tried this?

  3. Akshay says:

    Hi, I would like to flash my ubislate 7 +tablet, and install a custom firmware… I tried flashing from privacy but it just switches off and doesn’t flash to its manufacturers state… Need help..

    • Amogh Desai says:

      It depends on what custom firmware you used. I dont thing custom firmwares, ROMs available will work with this Tab, due to its uniqueness :) I believe Datawind has used Stock froyo with some customization for better performance. Given that their employees were driven by salaries and delivery timelines, i dont think they must have put much efforts to make it as good as you or I would.

      I haven’t tried flashing mine yet. Will post on this blog as soon as i do.

  5. Harish Shenai says:

    Where should we unzip the Ubislate -+ Multi-tool.zip ? on the PC HDD or the USB connected phone ? Thanks.

  6. Harish Shenai says:

    Hi tried using the Multi tool but nothing happens. Tried using the IP 192.168.1.4 & also the same as on my router. I do not get any error message at any stage & the tool shuts itself at the last stage where it asks for superuser.apk. Since I don’t get it I put the 0 option & it shuts down. What do I do ?

  7. Rajeshsharma says:

    First of all you learn how to set IP addresses…
    then try this ..this is really working..I have rooted 16 Ubislate tablets on my own using this tool.
    So dont be panic. Have basic knowledge of networking and USB dedugging and then try. go ahead…

    • Altaf says:

      What is the ip address that you are giving Rajesh. Can you please let us know. I have set the static ip address in the range which DHCP server assigns but yet not working and i ensured that UbiSlate had that ip address.

    • hareesh says:

      As you have rooted Ubislate, whether you have tried to unroot it in case of a warranty claim or something like that? Does this s/w can reset the device to its original state?

      • balamu96m says:

        Unroot option is available in the tool.

        V3 brings new features and i’m very happy that it has been useful to many.

        For any help, one can post it at my xda thread or here.
        I’ll have a look at them !!
