USB connection (2013-01-22)

Start your Tab 417 and connect it to a computer with a USB to Micro USB cable. A notification about an established USB connection will appear on your device in the lower right corner. Click on it and enable the device's USB storage feature. This will enable you to mount the whole drive on your computer and transfer the file if you chose to download it on your computer.

*.APK file (2013-01-22)

Now, download the Play store. Your best option is to just search for "google play store apk" on xda-developers.com, androidpolice.com or your favourite search engine. Depending on where you get it from, you have to change your security settings to allow the installation of unauthorized apps. In any case, you have to restart your device after the installation.

Chrome

In January I tried to get Chrome running, but it would always close and throw an error message. I digged a little deeper and it was something related to some Java library, as far as I remember. I was unable to resolve this.
After another try today, four months later, it runs smoothly. I'm surprised of how smoothly it runs, with all the nice Chrome features.
Enjoy!

Workaround: ZHLT fails to read WAD list properly

So I just recently picked up mapping for Team Fortress Classic again. I hadn't done it for a few years, so I was actually surprised how well everything worked with my new computer, operating system and all. Except one thing: The wad.txt would not be included properly, as seen below.
This happens when your wad.txt looks somewhat like this:
halflife.wad
zhlt.wad
This actually has a very simple fix: Just add a backslash ( \ ) to the beginning of every line and it should work perfectly fine.
\halflife.wad
\zhlt.wad
