Question [Q] Cyanogen Mod gapps bootloop

Hi, I have an SGH-T959V and I have many questions .-.

Phone information:
Model number: SGH-T959V
Firmware version: 2.3.6
Baseband version: T959VUVKJ6
Kernel version

First how can I put a custom recovery on here? Rom Manager does not do anything, and I don't want to go on Froyo to do it because i want android 4.1.2 - Cyanogen Mod 10.1 for SGH-T959V

Next is a problem. First I tried to put a custom recovery so I used Bali SGS4G v3.3UV Voodoo( from here - on android 2.3.6 gingerbread so I can use the recovery because there was no other way for me. Next I wipe data, cache, and dalvik then I installed the Cyanogen Mod zip from my downloads folder in my SD Card.

This zip - CM10 build 1-alpha

and this Gapps -

Also I tried following this guide but when I flash CM10 and then GAPPS I get stuck in clockworkmod bootloop, but it works fine if i just install CM10 but I will have no google applications such as the play store which is very important. I also put all the files in my downloads folder in my SD card.

I need to know how to make GAPPS work with the Cyanogen 10.1 Android 4.1.2 custom rom because gapps just makes it bootloop in cwm.

Wow that's a lot going on there.
At the top of your post your
Build says your on Gingerbread.
What recovery do you have?
Did you wipe correctly between
Did you back up your Elf folder?

I thought bali was froyo recovery. Don't use rom manager. This phone isn't supported.

OK...let's start from scratch:

1. Install Heimdall...follow Lumin30's guide:
2. Use Heimdall to flash the Basic With A Twist Kernel:

You are now rooted and have CWM recovery

3. Boot into recovery
4. Full wipe
5. Flash ROM
6. Flash Gapps

You should be good to go.
