Welcome to AF.

Which phone do you own? Also, did you install CM7? That doesn't come with the google apps installed by default, you have to flash them seperately.

That's all you've done is root, not flashed another ROM etc?

It's unlikely that rooting will have removed those apps from your phone, can you use your phones search function to look for them?

Can you also link to the guide you followed for rooting please?

Did you select "Install zip from SD Card at all"? Maybe "Apply Update.zip"?

You shouldn't do those unless you have an update.zip (and you know what it contains) on your SD Card or there is another ROM on there.

Were you attempting to install another ROM, or just messing around with clockwork?

I think I see what's happened here.

You don't unzip the ROMS on the phone, you need to flash the zip files in CWM.

Take the ROM you want, don't unzip and place it on your handsets SD Card. Once done, turn your phone off, take out the battery, re insert, hold volume down and power the phone on. In the screen that appears, select recovery, does it take you back into clockwork?

Aside from the first video, did you follow any guides at all for clockwork and/or installing ROMs?
