    Hi everyone,

    Ive managed to get android market installed but when i try to open it, it says ''you must add an account to the device to continue. Do you want to add one now''

    I click yes and it goes back to the home screen. So i manually tried to enter in the settings, accounts & sync, add account but all thats there is corporate & facebook but no google option. Please can someone help me??

    Sounds like you need to add the Google apps. You can do this by installing the GAPPS.apk, unfortuately I am at work and firewall rules won't let me get to the link to post it, but if you google GAPPS you should find it no problem.
