    Just out of curiosity I wanted to see what the different options are, and I realized I'd never seen any kind of instructional guide. If one doesn't exist, perhaps we could sticky this thread and start one?

    The main things I'm curious about now are the Console (what the heck is that for?) and the Fix apk uids. I'm hoping that might help resolve the Google maps problem which is linked in my sig.

    Anybody less noob-ish than I?

    THe Fix apk uids is basically reinstalling the ROM without actually doing it. SO what ever you had on there wont be lost. It works sometimes.

    I dont even have the AmonRa's anymore. I got converted to the rom manager

    Any possible disadvantages to using the fix apk uid tool?

    You want to use it if things are not running right. Have you rooted to a different rom yet? If not try that first. If it still does not work then use the new one.

    I dont know what part 2 to the question is sorry

    Updated to CM 5.0.8 today and LOVE it! The instructions mentioned Amon Ra's recovery 1.7, i've got 1.6.2 now. Is there any reason I should update?

    different look. There are no real advantages or disadvantages. Just a different recovery option thats all.

    What about clockwork recovery? The newest install guides reference that one.
