A brief history first, I now have two San Franciscos , First was a faulty OLED SF blade and am hunting down a display for it.
While waiting I bought a faulty TFT SF blade, replaced the screen, rooted it and installed cyanogenmod 2.3.7, feeling really plaesed with myself (first time flasher :) ) I looked for either android market or google play, niether were installed.

Downloaded google play.apk and installed it, when I tried to run it I was asked for an account to be added but didn't take me anywhere to set it up. anyway I found a place in settings to add an account, put in e-mail info, it retrieves data, click next then and get this.

If I go to google play it can see both phones, so google knows it exists,

I have tried sending apps from google to the phone but they never arrive.

Can anyone shed any light on this? Maybe there is a box I need to tick or something but I am lost!

Any help greatly appreciated.

If your flashing cyanogen mod roms you will need to flash a separate gapps zip for that rom e.g Ginger bread gapps in you're case , then you can access Google play e.t.c.

Thanks, I will start looking to see if I can find a "how to" for that as I take it that you cannot just put the zip on the SD card and instal it?

*edit* Have found and downloaded gapps-gb-20110828 onto my SD card, now need to find out what to do with it.

Having spent ages hunting around I have found this guide,

http://sanfranciscoa...-install-a-rom/

Would I be right in thinking that I can follow it down to
Number 9, then skip to number 14 to instal the gapps zip?
