Epson Movario BT-200 Root and Playstore installation.

Root on the Epson Moverio still works on MOVERIO SYSTEM UPDATE R1.1.2 (5TH MARCH 2015)

Before you start you need to enable untrusted sources to be able to install all packages. this can be found in the security settings.
Also a factory reset of the moverio is preferred to prevent root failure.

The needed tools to root the Epson Moverio are:

BaiduRoot_2001
eu.chainfire.supersu
com.jrummy.root.browserfree

Google:

Phonesky
GoogleServicesFramework
GoogleLoginService

Best to download all needed apk files to the moverio via the web browser in order when needed, this because the file manager does not allow installing a apk from memory but you can run them just fine when downloaded…

First install BaiduRoot_2001
Epson

Then open the app and accept the terms. these are in Chinese.
After accepting  flip the blue button.
click root
when it’s green your Moverio is rooted/jailbroken/unlocked.

Now install SuperSU. after install run it once and let it update.
eu.chainfire.supersu
After that Root Browser and let it update also when asked.
com.jrummy.root.browserfree

Now use Root browser to copy:
Phonesky
GoogleServicesFramework
GoogleLoginService

from the /sdcard/downloads folder to /system/app
hold the cursor on one of the 3 apps until the next menu pops up and tap copy.
copy files

go back 2 folders to the root and go to /system

system

Then go to the /App folder

app

Now press the Paste button.

paaste

Repeat this for all 3 packaged. After copying the files to /system/app reboot the moverio and play store will be in the menu.
Run the Play Store and let it be updated.
Now you are done and android boss!
After all is done remove the baidu root app as it is no longer needed.

Now you can install DJI Vision and the WiFi booster app directly from the play store!

As of now DJI vision app is available in the Epson Market so root is not required for that. Only needed when you want to have play store access to more apps.

    Hi. I followed your play store installation – very informative and worked exactly as described. Had a few problems logging into play store- kept getting a message about not being able to communicate with servers but after clearing playstore and framework cashe and clearING their respective data, force stop both apps then a reboot- everything awesome now.
    Have playstore, netflix, youtube, google maps all working well. Many thanks for a great tutorial.

          That D in your version number. Retail has R. Unfortunally the developer unit has issues to root. Never solved that:(
