No Market.
« on: December 30, 2011, 02:57:00 PM »

I reflashed my rom to 004 as I figured it didn't have the market and was right.
I was hoping to help users figure this out!  ::) :`)
Doing a little digging on the net I found market is in Vending .apk
I had hoped that backing up all the apk files would enable me to just install market.
Well it does, however it only gets to the option to create an account and clicking yes or no throws you out.
I also found a recommendation to load the youtube.apk first and log on with it to create a settings file which apearently market looks for on start.
This didn't work either. (cB)
Also tried the suggestion to place market in the system folded haven't tried this yet but did try the vendor apk with no luck. (cB)

Before I flashed my airpad I did notice a Google licence agreement  which isn't on the airpad now so this may be needed.
So far no luck with market. ::) :`)

I went to X10 facebook comments number 39 under:
AirPad 7p: The Best Tablet on the Market for Under $160!
a posting by Steve Elmore worked.

I went to the first link stated and I downloaded the 4 files from the links below the video and installed them in this order without factory reseting my airpad 7p’s.
after each one select “done”
power off unit and restart unit
open Market and setup email account

Order of installation:

1. OneTimeInitializer-signed.apk
2. SetupWizard-signed.apk
3. GoogleServicesFramework-signed.apk
4. com.android.vending-3.3.12.apk
Both airpad 7P's now have android.market

Let me know itf it works for you

Thanks Gjf  (GJ)
I went to  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BrWSC2uiAg&feature=bf_prev&list=LLev6ZS__aR0RJ5lp8ASTWpw&lf=plpp_video
which shows the process but a different order.
I'll try the order you posted and post the results.

I checked the order at the site and I believe I do have the right sequence.

The original files I downloaded from the individual links have different numbers assigned but I renumbered them to the order the video install.

What model airpad are you using?

Also I had to uninstall the Market app that we had tried earlier before installing the 4 new apk's

UpDate: `:) ~:0~ `:)
After doing a factory reset I was able to add market to my AirPad with rom 004 installed.
So this does work!
Now will it work for the AirPad X's  ::) :`)

Now I have a new refurbished 10" airpadX and the 4 apk files we used on the the Airpad 7p don't seem to work on the X.
They will not install.  The market apk will install but still has problem of no account.
When you talk of rom 4 vs rom 2 how do you determine which rom you have??

GJF

PS my new airpad 7p out of box, installed 4 apk's as above and worked fine to Android Market.

If you've never flashed but didn't have market you most likely have rom 003 or 004
I've never see 003 but I assume it didn't have supperuser 001 didn't as well
Also 001 and 002 had market.
The flash utillity will back up your rom. I'm not sure if it will tell you what version it is but it might.
I've since flashed back to 001 as I had thought I was able to get Voice recognition working with a test app and wanted that for TAC.
However some VR programs work but not all and the code I have for VR doesn't work with the AirPad.
At some point I'll root back to 004 as I don't want the game apps that come with 001 or 002.

some updates on my airpads
took AirpadX back to 2.3.4 from Zenithink seemed to have more with it.  Their 4.0 is a beta
Netflix requires the browser be set to Android versus Ipad under the browser setting window.
All 3 airpad 7p's are running both Amazon and AndroidMarket.
The external sd card is required on the AirpadX,  that's probably why X10 has a ghost one in the Airpad 7p
The sd card doesn't always mount properly after power off.  Must unmount and remount.  Symptom is some games hang or won't start.
Also on the AirpadX I have to shutoff the background sync if I run some Amazon apps.
The wireless wave is Green for Androidmarket and White for Amazon.
Will be buying another 7p with 4.0 so I can try the Androidmarket fix.

With X10 starting to work on a ICS build for the Airpads I decided to see what I could dig up.
There still will be no market  (cB) as well as some other settings (TTS & VR are just a couple  another thread).
Also with info disapearing off the X10 site about unoffical airpad how to get Market posts:
Users may be interested in this:
http://www.pathfindertech.net/how-to-root-the-air-pad-and-then-install-ice-cream-sandwich/
The user claims it gives you all the X10 to be removed apps including Market
