Default [Q] Unable to install Google Market on MTS 3G after rooting and installing CM-7.0.3

Hi Folks,

I am unable to install google apps (Goolge Market). I have cm-7.0.3 on myTouch Slide and as per the instructions I'm trying to boot into clockwork recovery from ROM Manager, and then do as follows:

1. Open ROM Manager
2. Select “Install Rom from SD Card" and select "gapps-gb-20110613-signed"

As per the istruction it should rebbot and show the installation progress but instead I get an error: “E:can't open /sdcard/gapps-mdpi-20110613-signed.zip (bad) Installation aborted.”

I reflashed cm-7.0.3 and tried installing google apps again but I get the same error. I even tried the latest version of google apps “gapps-gb-20110828-signed”. But nothing works.

Now I am stuck without android market on phone. Could you please help and suggest how to fix this issue or any laternative way of installing Google Market on my phone?

BTW I am new to rooting and flashing process.
Thanks in advance…

Try going into recovery from hboot and install the gapps.

Thanks for your reply...

I tried installing from clockwork recovery however when I select install zip from SD card option I get a blank screen and it stays there, nothing happens...Now I have updated CM 7.03 to CM 7.1 but it issue still exists...

If I go into android recovery do I need to rename the "gapps-gb-20110613-signed" to "update.zip" so that system recognizes it and it can be installed.

Appreciate your help.

Default It's working now

I used a brand new Micro SD card it worked , I was able to install the Google Apps from the new Micro SD card. Not sure what the problem was with the old card though

Thanks...
