I ran this way for quite a while until I took the plunge to CM7.
You can move even more apps to the SDcard w/TITANIUM BACKUP PRO.It lets you turn system apps into user apps & subsequently move them to the SDcard.
Just don't move the launcher,market,browser,email,or keyboard to SD & you should be OK.
Ok heres what did.. i took one more step from one of your Previous steps.. and i downloaded all the Correct CM6 Rom, and gapps.. and i already had clockwork.. so i flashed to stock rom.. formated sd, copied files to sd.. re flashed with cm6 and gapps... only installed gmail... and it seems to have worked ... but i will know in a hr or so if its going to ring.....
thanks for the help.. i will respond back here and let ya know.. and anyone else who is following... and if all else fails i will follow the idea above ^^ u suggested last night...
