I tried CM7B1 but it didn't work well at all
What distro do you use? Thanks again!
smiling because you called it a "distro" - I actually caught myself writing that, yesterday.
Not sure if that was directed at me. I am obviously biased against my own mods, but I personally use TNT Lite 4.4.x, TwoTapsX (which is pulled, reasons are because it can soft-brick a device), and VEGAn. I've also used gojimi's CM7 VEGAn GB edition. They all have pros and cons.
If you play games or movies, I think TNT Lite or VEGAn are good because they both have the G-sensor hack. There's also Calkulin's ROM which is supposed to be blazing fast, but possibly not as stable. He's got stuff in there that I don't add to TNT Lite, for stability reasons.
I'm trying your trick about mounting the gtab to my pc to force angry birds to install, but looking for the file in explorer, I can't find it anywhere.
If I go into market or amazon on the device it has to re-download so I guess it is not actually on the device????
You can sideload it using the microSD (if you have one). That doesn't get mounted to your PC.
Btw, check your build number. I'm positive that this was an old issue that was fixed in a newer build. This sdcard mount trick was something we used to do back in December, but I know that new ROMs / mods shouldnt need it.

The instructions on the blog are very well written, very lucid. After reading a lot on XDA, I simply picked up the source files from XDA and used the instructions on that site. I am now fairly comfortable with the process, and will probably only use XDA in the future. For a hitchhiker though, the XDA instructions can be a little confusing.
@Roebeet, would it be ok if I approached the blog writer to borrow his instructions, and post it to XDA? I mean, why re-invent a pretty decent wheel? Would there be any issue with that?
Finally, the device rocks with a modded ROM. Yes, screen angle is a pain, but thats solvable with a decent cover/stand. Otherwise, its a pleasure to use.
It's all about getting information available, so definitely PM him, He might be doing this himself as we PM'd each other two days back, but maybe he's backlogged and hasn't had time, yet.
