Be aware I give no warranties, you need to become root at some point and if you mess it up it is your fault (if you break it you may keep both pieces!)
Due to a change of Android version on the tablet and therefore change in how Android does separate into privileged and un-privileged apps (system and user) and Google thinks that GApps need system privileges here a quick guide how to get Google Play Store and Services installed. Please be aware that this is completely unsupported by Jolla.
- Download gapps-kk-20140606 (you may download a smaller version, any pico gapps-kk should do as well)
Note: you need to use an old version, using newer versions even if said compatible won't work, the old packages should update on its own though
probably best to do all of the below as root anyway but just in case you don't if something fails it is probably because of permissions and/or ownership of files
- In gapps-kk-20140606-signed/system/priv-app/ you should find GmsCore.apk, GoogleLoginService.apk, GoogleServicesFramework.apk and Phonesky.apk, copy those to
/opt/alien/system/priv-appon your Tablet
- chmod 664 them
- start your aliendalvik
- go to
/opt/alien/system/priv-app& as root
- for GServices to upgrade properly you may install Google Maps, it will request to update once you start the app
