This is the process I've been using successfully.

Overview:
  1. Gain root access
  2. Install Google apps
  3. Add an existing Google account
  4. Enable Market
  5. Enable "su"

Step 1 (Gain root access)
  • Install LaucherPro
  • Install z4root.1.3.0.apk
  • Press the Home key to start Launcher Pro, then longpress the homescreen to create a shortcut:
    Shortcuts->Activities->Settings->Development (com.android.settings.DevelopmentSettings)
  • Launch the newly created Development shortcut and check USB debugging
  • Launch z4root and install "permanent root". This installs busybox
    on your system and is required after every firmware reflash.


Step 2 (Install Google apps)
  1. Download and extract IQ_gapps.
  2. adb remount
  3. adb shell mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system
  4. adb push IQ_gapps /system
  5. adb shell chmod 777 /system/build.prop /system/app/* /system/lib/* /system/framework/* /system/etc/permissions/*
  6. adb shell chown system.system /system/build.prop /system/app/* /system/lib/* /system/framework/* /system/etc/permissions/*
  7. adb shell rm /data/dalvik-cache/*
  8. adb shell reboot

Step 3 (Add an existing Google account)
  • Install signed_YouTube.apk
  • Run Youtube, open the menu and select "My Channel". Add your Account.
  • Enable Sync for the account and wait until gmail shows your messages.

Step 4 (Enable Market)
  • Install build.prop from IQ_data.zip
  • Insert a valid androidId (see IQ_data Readme.txt)
  • Reboot, then try to open Market

Step 5 (Enable "su")
  • Get busybox.conf and passwd from IQ_data.zip
  • adb shell mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system
  • adb push settings/passwd /system/etc
  • adb push settings/busybox.conf /system/etc
  • adb shell mv /system/xbin/su /system/xbin/su.orig
  • adb shell ln -s /system/bin/busybox /system/xbin/su
  • adb shell rm /system/bin/su
  • adb shell chmod 6755 /system/bin/busybox

Notes:

If after the setup Youtube begins to FC, reinstalling the app will fix the problem.
