I tried using NTGAppAttack, but the Google store it came with doesnt work (at least not on my device).
Any ideas wouuld be much appreciated.
If you have ADB working you can install apps wirelessly from your PC (assuming you have a local copy of the apk file). But it would be better to get the Market up and working. Some people have recently had trouble with the Market sign-in process that was suggested for the GApps installation. There is an older process that apparently still works but relies on the YouTube app being present along with the GApps package. Just remember, both require some wait time before the Market will recognize the device (which it sees as "phone"). And whatever finally works for you, you will always
get the "no content" message from the Market app and you will never
be able to search directly from it. That's why you need SearchMarket.
If you are only just starting it might be worth it to try the process all over again (i.e., use Nook Manager to restore to factory, then root, then try the GApps install again) but with a small difference. You can add the YouTube app to your Nook Manager SD card before
you try a new root, along with a script file to install it as part of the package. That way if the Market sign-in (following the directions for the GApps package) fails again, you will have the YouTube app already installed and can try the sign-in the old way.
So, if you're not having luck getting ADB going (you should already have the ADB Konnect app installed) and therefore can't install the YouTube app that way, you can try altering the Nook Manager card just slightly. Take a look at the card directory on your PC and find the folder files/data/app. You should see some apk files there. Add a copy of the YouTube app (attached below). Then locate the folder scripts and add the install_youtube file (attached below also--REMOVE
the ".txt" from the file name before you use it).
That should do it. Run NookManager as normal on your factory-restored NST, rooting and then installing the GApps package. Try the Market sign-in process as instructed (you never said if you got a sign-in error or anything?). Wait as suggested and then see if you can access the Market. If after a day or so you still have no joy, then follow the old method:
1. At the Android Welcome Screen skip Sign In.
2. Enable Location Services when given the option.
3. Connect to Wifi and launch Youtube from ADW's App Drawer (Or the App Drawer of your Choice).
4. Click the Menu button (The right one in the middle of the status bar).
5. Select "My Channel" and Login using your Gmail Account.
6. Exit Youtube and Launch Gmail from ADW's App Drawer.
7. Sync your Gmail Account and Exit. (If it fails to sync that is fine.)
At this time Market fails and you must wait up to a day. Just check it every so often.
