    Installed TnT G-Harmony 1.2

    Tried to follow the following steps as in the sticky

    1. After Market starts, I've tried to sign into my google account. It failed. So I guess that's what the problem is.

    So I tried 1-3 several times. Each time, step 4 went back to the same screen as in step 1: "Add a google account"

    Rebooted several times, same thing

    Is there any other tricks?

    In the other sticky, the linked page says that you have to partition. Is that necessary? If so, what am I partitioning? Is it a single 16GB internal flash?

    Thanks!

    First full charge. Used a bit. Powered down at about 70%. Next day, it went down to 48% when I open it.

    Is this normal?

    Thanks!

    Yes, signing into your account is too far in the process. Restart and follow the steps, and it should work. I didn't partition at all, and it works fine.

    It really depends on what you have running in the background, including live wallpapers, apps with push notifications, wifi, etc.

    I rebooted the device. Following the steps exactly:

    1. Launch market and hit home
    2. Settings -> Application -> System Application -> Market, clear cache is greyed out, so I hit force stop
    3. Back, Google Service Framework, clear data, force stop
    4. Home, launch market, same "add account" screen

    What am I missing?

    Thanks

    BTW, flash fix did work.

    Should I be able to sign into my account with Market without the fix? I can't.

    There is another post saying I should signed into the google account first. The suggestion was using Contact. But I can't find any way to sign in there.

    Thanks!

    Make sure you can log onto the account from a PC. There might be a captcha waiting for you...

    Yes, I can. In fact, the Contact app can import my Google contacts.

    If I choose power down, nothing should be running, right?

    Yes that turns your tablet completely off.

    I left it in standby last night. 14 hours later, the battery is 83%.

    12 hours later, I can log into Market with my Google account. Then the steps worked. Honestly, I don't know what the steps fix so I don't know what to check.

    Once I get out of settings (via Home), clicking on Settings again will cause it to crash

    "The application Settingshas stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks!

    I have the TnT and Android keyboard.

    Tried to install a couple. They show up in the Settings. Tapping the checkbox gave the Attention warning. Clicking on OK. But the checkbox remains unchecked.

    Am I missing something?
