Default How can I login to Android Market with a different Google account?

I've rooted my Fire and installed the Android Market without a problem. When I
first opened the market I logged in with my Google account to make sure everything
worked. Since I got this device for my dad, I'd rather he log in with his own Google
account. I've cleared the app data, and even deleted and re-installed. I can't get
the option to log in with a different google account and it stays with mine. Is there
a solution to this? Has anyone else experienced this?

Without access to the Account and Sync menu, I believe you'll need to uninstall and do a fresh reinstall of the market

I've uninstalled the market and re-installed with the apk. Or is there a more precise uninstall I should be doing?

In the Android development subforum here the long how to install market thread has reference to getting gmail to sync and those posts reference another thread with a link to a Sync Settings app. That will allow you to add another gmail account or delete one in addition to setting up sync items and auto sync. If I knew the post I'd gladly supply it but all I remember is where I found reference to the app.

Then just add your dad's email then subtract yours. Then to market and your set.

Added: found reference in a thread in this subforum on syncing contacts: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=19461785&postcount=2

Worked great. I installed "Quick Sync Settings" from the market. Thank you for providing that link.

I just hit "menu" and added an account from the Market. Or maybe GMail. It was pretty simple, really.

The menu from the market app wash giving me the option. Not until I added another gmail account through the sync settings it did.

Hi I have a similar question but just about the amazon app store. I have been using a separate email account to buy apps than the one to buy all my kindles and books. Is there any work around to have both amazon.com accounts logged in or to keep the apps and books installed while I am on my other account or the other?

I have rooted the tablet and have my google market running fine so I might just have to stick to that.

Thank you

Can't you install Anycut from the android market, open it, create new activity, select accounts and sync or whatever the activity is called, and then go from there?

Additionally can you open the Gmail app, menu, accounts, add account...from here, go to the android market and then you should have 2 different gmail accounts to choose between?

Thanks for that. I tried it and it crashes the system. I actually have two account from google on my market, but my main problem is accessing the apps that are registered to my gmail account. Mainly because my kindle account is a separate email and every time you deregister the Kindle it deletes your books or installs the apps.
