    It seemed better to start my own thread than to hijack another one, so here is the info.

    I am having difficulties getting the Google Market on to a Coby Kryos MID9740. This tablet was a recent purchase, and I followed the directions here exactly as posted. The tablet appears to be rooted, plus I have the recovery mode installed on the tablet. When attempting to install the google store apps (tried gapps-ics-201204290signed.zip and even the Coby_9740_root_gapps.zip), there is no luck in finding the google market afterwards. The gapps-ics-201204290signed.zip seems to have installed just fine, but no market shows up. The Coby_9740_root_gapps.zip file does not install due to verification testing not passing.

    Anyone got some ideas here?

    Actually, I have read those extensively. I have followed those instructions. There is a bit more than 250mb available on my /system/apps folder. So I do not believe that is the problem.

    Any other ideas?

    Sounds like you didn't correctly root or add recovery, cw recovery doesn't check signatures by default, so to get fail signature means you have stock recovery not cw recovery.

    My apologies for not responding sooner, I found a workaround and kind of forgot to respond.

    I am pretty certain that I rooted correctly. However, as for adding the cw recovery option, I cannot be for certain. As a workaround, I used "ES File Explorer" in root mode and appropriately extracted all of the files to the correct locations. Then I went to the shell and gave them the appropriate permissions. It would seem to me that the cw recovery option was not doing what it supposed to (hence why I do not know if that was installed correctly).

    As for the room, here is the results:

    While the tablet is currently working with the google play store, I just want to be certain it does not have any other issues.

    I was hoping for a bit more help. It is implied that I did not install the cw recovery correctly. According to the thread here, it suggests that I look at the post here to install the cw recovery option. As I followed the instructions, I can only suggest that the recovery did not install correctly. Any suggestions to what I need to do?
