Oh dear lord...it's on, at last. I cant thank enough my good man. At the very least, you deserve to copy the instructions of success and let me accept the answer so you can get the extra bonus :)

I have tried both unmount-mount and remount commands. I was unaware of that ES file explorer trick. I will take a look when back home

Tried with ES File explorer and it returned a permission denied error. My tablet is rooted. Please keep in mind that I have tried to mount the filesystem as rw with adb too, with no better luck. Seems that I need to unlock that feature somehow? Odin?

Ok, tried again, no suspicious messages during the process and still cannot find the apps in the menu. Why not install the apk of Google Play?

It is a little weird, I can see some necessary services like Google Play Service, which werent exist previously, I cannot see any of the apps that are supposed to be installed. I will write an answer on that, and open an new thread as it seems a different issue. Cheers :)

Ok, I did it...it was really easy. Boot on recovery, and ran adb sideload. Now I cannot see the apps in the menu but that's seem to be really different issue. Thanks for helping man

Stock one...lets say I am installing CWM recovery. Is it pretty easy then to flash the zip, I suppose? The problem is that I dont know how easy is to install a new recovery outside of Play store.

Some questions here as I am not very familiar with the recovery screens. Is is supposed to be named as update.zip? My recovery has the following relevant options. "Apply update from ADB", "Apply update from TFCard", "Apply update from cache". Both the last 2, lead me to an empty dir with the only actual option being the "../" directory(one dir level up). How would you approach it?
