easy market install on Froyo Firmwares: the apk way!

Post by m4rk3t »

The goal is to make it easy to install market on an Archos device: please find below a link to an apk that does it for froyo.
http://rapidshare.com/files/434229115/gApps4Archos2.apk
Note that the former eclair apk will not work.
All you need to do is to:
- put gApps4Archos2.apk file on your Archos disk
- install it by selecting this file using the device file manager
- run the installed package and follow the installation steps

It has been tested on an Archos32it. Please report any issue on other models.

Enjoy!

I love how a mystery person not affiliated at all with archos magically turns up with an apk that works... ;-)

Many thanks for the .apk! Although is anyone else experiencing a graphical artifact at the top of the Market application?

This is on a Archos 70 BTW.

Screenshot attached.

Luckily no artifacts in the calendar like in 2.1 :D

Although now I just noticed YouTube doesn't work for me...and I am not allowed to manually update it via the Market :(
