    I just flashed the Cyanogen 5.0.5.3. It seems to have loaded up fine. However, I dont have any google apps. No market, no Gmail, nothing. Does anyone know how I can get those back?

    Also, I tried to flash back to what I was using before from a nandroid backup, but when I boot up into recovery mode and select "nandroid", then "restore" it says that no files were found on my SD Card. I checked, and the Nandroid backup file is there.

    Thanks.

    if you were using sprecovery before and are now on clockwork then your old backups wont work. The reason you dont have any google apps is because you didnt select the option for google apps in rom manager. If you did select it and it didnt install the zip can be found on your sd card. Its in one of the folders under clockwordmod. It should be a zip file that starts with gapps. I can check what folder now cause I am flashing a theme

    Ok. I did not select it, dont know why, I must be an idiot or something. Is there a way to get them back?

    And I was using Sprecovery before. So I have no backups to work with?

    yea you can. I would install that then once you have the market back use rom manager again to do it and make sure to select google apps and modules

    Do you have a copy of DM Updater available? That will flash SB Recovery to allow you to use your older backups.

    Yes, that is the same thing he suggested with DM updater. Droid root helper will work just fine

    Droid root helper (pro) hasn't been successful in reflashing to sprecovery from clockwork for me. I haven't tried dmupdater for what it's worth.

    Here is a link to DMUpdater. That will flash your recovery.
    http://downloads.droidmod.org/dmupdater-10.apk

    I would recommend that you read this thread - it will show you the direct way to flash recovery (and hints on preventing/managing future problems)
