I have not had any issues with this build but that does not mean that there are none. I will not be held responsible for any bad things that happen if YOU install this on YOUR device.
Not sure if I had to put that or not, but better save then sorry right?
All my builds are currently for the 8GB version. If you have a 2GB version take EXTRA caution and be sure you want to be the first to try this.New V.3 instructions! Read it all!!!
So here it is. Load this update.img into the root of your A7HT, install it and you will have Google Apps.
Android Market, Gmail, GMaps, Google Talk and Google Calendar works.
The Not so good:
The install of Google contacts sync is a work around.
None that I know of. Hopefully fixed it all.
Risk of losing all your data you already have set up:
100%. This is a complete wipe of what is there and installing a brand new image.
1. Load the update.img linked at bottom of thread into the root of your A7HT. Change notes
2. Turn off USB sharing and you will be prompted to install an update.
3. Click install and A7 will reboot
4. Install the update and eventually go back to the setup screen
5. Go into settings, turn on WiFi and connect to your router
6. Once it is connected:
a. Open any of the Google apps (market, Gmail, Calendar)7. All is well with the world.
b. Go through the Google setup screens.
c. Upon completion install: contacts.apk and GoogleContactsProvider.apk.
Note: GoogleContactsProvider.apk will give you some message about it being a system app that is already installed.... Click OK and continue.
Note: Yes, I know you will get an additional app called dialer. You'll just have to deal with it as it's part of the contacts.
I removed some of what I consider the trash-ware that was installed on there from the beginning. AppsLib is still in there so if you want any of the below items I removed you can find them with that. The items removed include:
All the files for the market and apps
***My custom app to open wifi settings has been removed from v3 as it is no longer needed.***
Please let me know if you have any issues so I can investigate.If you would like to donate:DONATE
