    Greeting,
    I rooted my Gtablet with latest Vegan Gingerbread experimental.
    It all went smooth until

    Objective 5:

    Fix the Android Market

    1. Launch the Market app. Once it loads close it. (Just tap the Home button)

    I can;t find the Market App. Is that expected?
    The tablet functions really well in everything else.

    Thanks

    I found the solution.
    1) the procedure I was trying to follow is not accurate for the ROM (Vegan Ginger) I was using. Mainly Objectives 4 and 5 do not apply.
    2) the Market Apps app had to be installed on its own
    " On the vegan gingerbread thread at the XDA developpers forum, gojimi put the market update file there to download. It's on the first post of the thread. Install the market with clockwork. Once market is installed you can find flash 10.2 in the market"

    My installation went smooth. I am very impressed with this ROM and this tablet.

    Cheers.

    Can you actually provide the link to download the Android Market app? You mention it is in another forum. How about providing some direction here... :)

    Thanks!

    Your ROM didn't come with it? Just Google "android market apk", download and move to your device.
