I installed the latest CM7 build without issue after doing a factory reset.
Downloaded the gapps file from their wiki site.
I have been trying this since 4 pm yesterday.
I cannot get gapps to work. at all.
It says flashing complete, but then no apps appear.
No gmail, maps, navigation, etc.
I kept reflashing CM7, first from HTC's bootloader and then started the device. without doing a thing, I turned off the phone and used CM& to go into recovery.
I then installed Gapps.
First few times nothing.
One time it only let me install one app.
Another the screen turned off and thus deactivated the market app (weird)
I ended up hard resetting, flashing cm7, booting, shutting down and then loaded gapps and then booted up again.
I like how CM7 incorporated a file manager and screen capture, or is that part of adw launcher free version?
I downloaded the google apps individually because gapps just wasn't happening as everytime I booted up it was already recognizing me.
I'm having the same problem. Flashed CM7.2 on my phone, and then gapps immediately afterwards. Booted and didn't find Market. If I look under settings>Applications>Manage applications>All, I see "Market" grayed out.
I'm doing this on a HTC Evo. Updated all the radios, and I did a factory reset before installing. Any ideas?
GAPPS is pretty much only the Play app now - everything else is downloaded from the market. Goggle is trying to disassociate Gmail and other traditional apps as "core apps" and make them market apps so they are easier to maintain and update.
I don't see Market or Play in the apps drawer, but if I go to my settings, and see the applications installed, I do see Market, Markets apps installer, market feedback agent, and market updater. If I select Market, both the option to Force stop, or clear data are selectable. If I go to running services, it's not listed as running.
I found some time and did a few combinations of installs. I downloaded gapps 20101114 which was the prior gapps for phones with HDPI ( evo 4g ). For each install, I wiped the Dalvik cache and did a factory reset, then used recovery to flash the ROM and then gapps before rebooting.
I tried CM 7.1 with gapps 20110828, CM 7.1 with gapps 20101114, and CM 7.2 with gapps 20101114. All of these resulted in a bootloop that kept restarting at the first setup screen.
Only CM 7.2 with the most recent gapps for CM7 booted, but still no Market or Play app.
