is it possible to load “Android Market" or google application on PE Ermine version?

try a lot of methods to download different version of market, no working.

Now I load the "GoogleServicesFramework.apk" into PE, and found that in the Setting->Account, you have option to add gmail account info, but it always shows up the connection is failed. any ideas about this?

Yeah, I researched it. Here's what I found and saved in a text file. Can't remember where I found it originally though. I also haven't tried it, although I plan to in the next week or so.

How To: Get the Android Market on your eDGe

First, thanks to brianb5010 for coming up with a variant of this procedure.

Before you get started, you need the following things:

1. A rooted Android phone/tablet with 2.2 (or maybe higher) with the Android Market;

2. A copy of Titanium Backup installed on your phone/tablet.

Basically, this is what you do:

1. Start by rooting your eDGe. You can use several different procedures, but the easiest is probably just to download z4root from the Amazon Appstore. Make sure to select the "Permanent Root" option.

2. Next, install Titanium Backup and Root Explorer on your eDGe.

Root Explorer is in the Appstore, and you can get Titanium Backup here: http://matrixrewriter.com/android/

3. Open Titanium Backup. On your phone, you want to make backups of the following applications:

Calendar Sync Adapter
Contacts Sync Adapter
Gmail
Google Partner Setup
Google Services Framework
Market
Market Updater
Talk
YouTube

And, of course, anything else you want to install. This is extremely important: WHEN YOU BACKUP THE FILES, MAKE SURE THAT YOU CHOOSE THE APP + DATA OPTION.

4. Next, you need to move these backup files from the Titanium Backup folder on your phone (which is usually stored in your sdcard) to the Titanium Backup folder on your eDGe.

5. On your eDGE, go into Titanium Backup. Then, you want to restore the gapps, which should be crossed out at the bottom of the screen (alternatively, if you've already been messing around with the gapps, you can just restore them on top of the old versions). When you restore, make sure to include BOTH the application AND the data. Moving the data from your phone to your eDGe is an essential part of this process.

6. Finally, you need to do a little text editing. On your eDGe, go into the root explorer and navigate to the system folder. Press "mount r/w" on the top of the screen. Press and hold on the "build.prop" file. Then, select "open in text editor." Find the line that says "ro.build.fingerprint." You want to change it to the following:

"ro.build.fingerprint=google/passion/passion/mahimahi:2.2/FRF91/43546:user/release-keys"

7. Reboot your machine.

8. Go into the Market and setup your Google account.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to do this without another Android device. I've tried installing by just sideloading the gapps, but moving over the data seems like a crucial step. I'm considering sending out my Titanium Backup files, but I'm a little nervous about my name/password information being included in the data.

Hope this helps some people out!

Not necessarily. Pioneers tend to be tough.

Thanks a heap, emusan. I just rooted and installed Market on my PE, and all seemed to go well. I haven't gotten Google Talk to sign in properly, but I think it might have to do with user names and passwords (I get sooo confused!).

I'm pretty sure I'm signed in to my Market account properly, since my paid apps show up, but no luck downloading them either. Supposedly I should be able to download them to up to six devices, and the PE is only number two. PE doesn't show up on my device list when I go to the Market on my PC, either. I'll have to mess around a bit.

And don't pay any attention to what that jerk on the "new" forum says. You were right, he was and is wrong, and will probably soon be gone.

yeah, I'm working on the market and talk issue right now, I should have a new set of backups before tomorrow(at the latest by morning tomorrow EST). Sorry for the mess lol.

Oh and I don't mind edgehacker much anymore, his posts on his board are a bit funny in fact, but now one of them is posting strange images(of a turkey, your guess is as good as mine on that lol) on the official forum and is threatening a DDOS of my website because I backed up the official forums.
