    Title says it all. I bricked one of my two tablets copying the google apps into my system/apps folder (it actually worked when I restored files from my phone using titanium backup, but when I rebooted the tablet it froze. I then bricked the tablet by trying to install a rom I found on the internet - obviously not the right rom).

    Anyway, I really want to get calendar and contacts working. The factory rom comes with the calendar app, but it doesn't sync with google (it's missing the transport, and when I try to run the APKs they don't install). The rom does not come with contacts app. Given the lack of a decent recovery, I'm kind of gun shy about playing around. If anyone got this working, it would be great if you could share your secrets. Thanks.

    This is a great tablet. I hope we can get some development going.

    guess you've solved it in the meantime, anyways:
    download http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/Latest_Version/Google_Apps
    (
    CM7 version for 2.3.x version and CM6 HDPI if you have android 2.2.x)
    Extract to SD (into let's say _Gapps folder)
    Install everything within the folder (one by one), except Vending.apk - that one must go last
    Restart and voila...
