Lorenzo,

You need to install the custom rom. It's not possible to install the market on the device. At least not that I know.

A new custom rom 2011.5.1 has been released. See first post in this thread

This one is identical to the 2011.5 released Yesterday 24th January apart from the fact that I removed MarketUpgrader.apk from the rom.

The MarketUpgrader.apk checks whether there is a new version of the market application. During testing I flashed my A7 and upon "coming to life" I immediately tested the market and that functioned. Little time later (2 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes?) the marketupgrader checks for a new version of the market application and found one. If found it will install this new version immediately. However, this new version is not compatible yet with our eclair.
If you remove the update (Settings->Manage applications) it still doesn't work as the upgrade did change "something" which makes that the old market doesn't function anymore either.

I choose the simple, pragmatic solution to remove the marketupdater.apk.
When googling for this problem I also found that some guys already found a solution for it. I will check that as well, but for the time being, with a working market, I will step down a little and mostly use the A7 for what I bought it for: reading.

I didn't say I will stop the firmware customizing. I said I will slow down now that I have achieved my goal. The coming period I will use my tablet where I bought it for. (and that's not constantly hacking it :) )

Which rom: the 2011.05 from yesterday? Or the fixed 2011.05.1 from today?

The 2011.05 from Yesterday stops working after a few minutes due to the marketupgrader as describes a few posts higher.
The 2011.05.01 has a fix. until now that one continues to work for me.

Yes, that's the correct one. You did not manually upgrade the market application?

I flash again my 7 HT. Then without install anything, I tested market and download is OK. But, I see that, without I want this, two softwares are downoladed with fail. Later, two differents, always with echec.
Then I install softwares from my backup. I look for install softwares that aren't install in your release.
After this, the problem with market is here.
Now, I'm beginning flash again. After, I shall install, one by one softwares to find what of them is in conflict with market.
After, I post the result.

That's three hours past the test and retest.
Finally my tablet works. :D
However, I had problems: I installed my apps one by one.
After each install I went on the market to install an app.
A half of my installations, after installing Freebox recorder, download failure from market.
I uninstalled and Freebox recorder and the download was OK.
I continued without Freebox recorder and then I had to install the Parisian, even blocking. Uninstalling App and everything goes.
And so on. The problem came with 3 other apps.
At the end, I reinstall these softwares and everything worked.
In short, I have no logical explanation.
Now, I have 110 MB of memory for programs.
Therefore, the tablet is rooted, market ok and calendar sync with google.
Positioning WIFI works in GoogleMaps.
contact software isn't present. Yet GoogleContactsProvider is installed in the system.

It did work for a few hours and now it has stopped for me as well. Also on other threads in this forum this (mis)behavior is mentioned like in viewtopic.php?f=59&t=45226&start=0 (yar0.27 rom). You also find loads off posts on the web about it.
I tried by now all options they mentioned, apart from the factory reset, but nothing helped so far.

I hope and think it has nothing to do with my rom, but with Market itself.

Tried everything too, but now it's fixed

Instead of logging on to the market with [email protected] log in with [email protected]googlemail.com

You will have to reset factory settings or update the image again so you can login again. After that login with googlemail instead of gmail. (same username as normal)
