Regrettably not much support over at the Matricom Forums, so I will ask here. Apparently Matricom does not include Google apps in the beta firmware (Does any one know why?). I had to load 1.22 to solve other issues, but now there is no Google Play Store and I get "Google Play Services has Stopped" error message. Does anyone know where I can find the zip to install, and how to do it? I *assume* to install thru the launcher reboot/recover menu?? Thanks . . . . .

The way that I know how to install it is with the toothpick method.
you can get the g-apps file and recovery image from the matricom wiki.
put the two files on your sdcard and reboot into recovery mode using the toothpick.
then just select EXT then the g-apps file to install them.
I could be wrong, but from what i have read from matricaom its like this because the beta's are rooted and google has issues with their software being on a rooted box or something like that. but thats why you can have a rooted beta with no g-apps or an unrooted final with them. (of course there is also a root for the final that can be installed by toothpick for the final releases though)
