if you are stuck on "installing" make sure you have enough space to install the app to your phone (you are not getting a low space error)
cancel the install and try again.

Got about 20Mb free, and ATK and ADW Launcher aren't that big. Also not seeing any errors anywhere...
Maybe it defaults to installing on SD, which isn't available?

Too bad there isn't much logging available.

well, i setup ifroyo on my 3g for the second time now. i was using 1.6 and it was waay faster than 2.2 but 2.2 works mostly well and looks better, so i decided to go back.

i used a windows 7 64 bit pc to do all of this. ubuntu was giving me a royal headache. so after installing the sdk i ran the sdk update exe, got all that done. then i adb connected to the phone while it was running android with wifi on. i found that the commands were a little different for the command prompt than linux terminal

instead of "./adb" you would type "adb"

basically all on the adb wiki, it tells you what to input all the way up to mounting and pushing the files over. what also happens is that BEFORE you execute the push command, you have to dir to the "sdk/tools" folder. because this is where the apps/ folder is that you will transfer. remember to also include the "tools" entry since your adb file is in there along with the app folder so once you get to that, then you can execute the push command in windows by typing:

"adb push app /system/app"

in the wiki it says to include the "/" before the first app but the computer will not understand and think that "/" is part of the file name, so dont include it. and put a space after app before /system. i did it that way and it finally started copying. once it finishes type:

adb shell
chmod 6755 /system/app/SetupWizard.apk
reboot

BAMMM! now im stuck on the google account sign in screen! it says that it may take up to five minutes! i think its been longer though. hope this helps some newbs like me using a pc!

***BUAAAAAHHHH xo, well, i was so close. i think i have corrupted android by hard rebooting it to get out of the google setup screen. i guess its starting all over for me then :((((((

*UPDATE** ok i found these instructions for what to do during the bootup...

Welcome to iPhone
> Tap the "Android Logo"

Learn how to use your iPhone
> Tap "SKIP"

Set up your Google Account
> Tap "SKIP"

Use Google location
> Up to you and Tap "Next"

Date and time settings
> Up to you and Tap "Next"

Go setup your wifi and make sure there is an internet connection
Open up Gmail/GoogleTalk/Market
You will see the setup wizard again, complete the wizard and let it verify your account.
After that you should be able to run Market, this should fix all the G App that is in the OS.

----thanks to whoever posted the tutorial in this thread---->NAiDroid2G Installer 0.2a[Linux/Windows]

***update*** SO i re-installed ifroyo but with version 1.3-D since i read it was faster. i cant really tell. but i reinstalled gapps. now it works great!!

As i was searching for some apps in the market place i noticed some apps were not there like pandora and pdanet. I think the reason for this is since froyo has not been official released to phones except the nexus one some protected apps are not shown in the market place to phones running 2.2. does any one else seem to have this problem.

I got exactly same problem. What's more, I get error after connecting to my iPhone (it says that it is connected) when trying to use "adb shell" command: error: device offline

But now I'm trying to get rid of that problem.

Edit: YES !!! IT'S WORKING !

Can someone post a definitive list of exactly what is required, from this folder, to get just the Android Market, and the Social Network stuff?

Every time (so far) that I've installed, when I reboot, my phone seems to hang at the point where it shows "android". The shining light passes across the word, then hangs, then does it again.

And again, and again.

If there is anything in there I DON'T need to install, I'd love to take it out. This will now be the third (or fourth, lost count) time I've restored a pristine system.img, and I really just want to get the Market.

I know those two aren't needed, but those aren't the only ones that aren't needed.

iphodroid is mac only, I'm on a pc. Isn't it just the boot menu, anyway?

Is there a howto for iphodroid? I see that it also runs on linux, so I may try it there.

oh okay then . It is sure for mac and its not just for the boot menu but for installing everything .
If you already have openiboot then just shh into you phone and take the system.img from iphodroid then you are good to go.

Yeah, I went ahead and did that, but the system is highly unstable trying to get anything done.

Also, I'm as of now, still unable to get logged in to Google, to get into the market.

*sigh*
