I had installed custom ROM CyanogenMod 9. But I am not able to make Google play work in it. It doesn't show Add Google Account option in the Accounts & Sync option in Settings.

I had also googled and found that I need the latest gapps to be installed. So, I downloaded the latest gapps from goo.im but still I am not able to setup my Google Account. When I installed google play apk and run it, it gets closed after few seconds. I checked the logs and it gave be below exception,

D/AccountManagerService( 276): there is no authenticator for com.google, bailing out
D/AccountManagerService( 276): bind attempt failed for Session: expectLaunch false, connected false, stats (0/0/0), lifetime 0.0, addAccount, accountType com.google, requiredFeatures null
I/AccountManagerService( 276): unbind() over.
D/Finsky ( 4061): [1] 13.run: AuthenticatorException while adding account: android.accounts.AuthenticatorException: bind failure. Finishing.

So, anybody had the same issue if future please let me know. What can be the way that I can solve my problem.

  1. Download the gapps from here: http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip (latest) download the zip.
  2. check the MD5 and flash it from recovery.
  3. Wipe data and cache.
  4. reboot.

    download it frm here: goo.im/gapps/gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip. Try to flash gapps immediately after flashing the rom without reboot in between. wipe data n cache and reboot. – PsychicSmit Oct 31 '12 at 18:25
