    Currently running Cyanogenmod 7.1.0 Supersonic on an EVO 4G & I install all my apps using APK but I cannot use Market , Gmail etc because the phone will not allow me to add accounts. When I open markets it asks would I like to add an account , I click yes but no action is taken. When I try to add an account vie settings I get 3 options ( skype , corporate & ooVoo ) When I put my email info in for corporate I get the message "Unable to open connection to server"

    when you use a cm7 build, you hafta flash the market separately. There is a download of this file called gapps.zip that you flash in recovery using the same method that you used to flash the rom which puts the market in your build. Dunno why its that way, just is lol

    it is because ggogle own's the rights to the market and its apps. so when you create a rom and it does not belong to any of the handset maker's, you will need permission by google to add those apps into the rom being created. since cm7 is not sense or moto blur for example, the team behind cm7 could not add them to the rom. when the cyanogen mod team was first putting together their first rom, google sent them a cease and desist letter. so what the team did was make the google apps available in a flashable zip. thus gapps was born.

    so to the op you need to go here: http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/284413-roms-kernels-download-page.html. under aosp the first thing there is the gapps file. this gapps file is cool because it has sprint's vvm cooked in.

    also once you have the market you should get titanium backup to backup all of your apps and its data. it makes it easy to restore those apps after you flash another rom.
