boot to recovery
power on, let go, hold power until it says starting recovery kernel, then let go of power
press the "home" button, and use the menu to wipe cache, factory reset, flash the factory rom, and wait for first boot w/ ac power plugged in.
after first boot, turn unit off, and turn back on and boot into recovery again.
flash the a7-gapps zip provided (remember to rename it to update.zip to work w/ recovery).
CHOOSE FACTORY RESET
(this wipes existing data that may conflict with install)
congradulations, you should now have a FULLY WORKING MARKET PLACE.
UPDATED NOTES; this is the the 1.82 market that comes w/ the latest gapps for tegra from cyanogenmod (gapps-mdpi-tegra-20101020-signed). i patched it using the same smali patches applied in the patched market found in dexter's 1.2 rom, minus the androidmanifest.xml. this may account for it not autoupdating the market itself, but for today i'll take full market access on the old interface than limited access on the new market.
i tested this patched market to show "skyfire" and "qik" video players, and i added further build prop and permission settings that provided more search results; searching for 'gps' and 'video' results went up from 3300 to about 4500.
i intentionally did not provide larger apps like youtube, maps and twitter as they are downloadable from the market.
This is the google apps, libs and permissions that i extracted from cyanogenmod's gapps package and provided as a standalone update.zip for those wishing to have the google android market on their tablet, but not wanting to deal w/ a third party experimental rom requiring regular updates and wipes.
I hope you enjoy using the google market and applications with the latest stock rom. My wife does, and can now enjoy her working tablet w/ farmville.
Please, hit the lil' DONATE button under my name if i helped to make your life a lil' easier, or your android device more enjoyable. Thank you!
