Save to the SD card and install it straight after CM.
ahh i see and thats the market gmail etc?
im guessing internal? or external?
Other ROMs keep the Market etc, it was just CM that got the cease and desist.
NANDroid backup will be unaffected, wipe just blanks /data
Use the external card, keep it simple.
what other roms? like nightlies or whatever its called?
Thats cool, dude youve been a BIG help ill probably get stuck along the way XD
I've merged the two threads as I was just repeating myself
Nightlies are CM7, other ROMs are stock based, such as the MoDaCo Custom ROM
Haha no prob
I just went to download cyangrnmod7.1 and it asked if I wanted Google apps if I click OK and download and then wipe>> then flash the zip file will cyangen and Google apps(marker etc) be there ?
I presume you're using ROM Manager to download it?
Yes it will, makes things easier.
Yeah rom manager how big is the file and where does it save?
CM is around 90MB and GApps is around 15MB I think.
It will get saved in /sdcard/clockworkmod/download/something
and is the googleapps in that same zip aswell then because i downloaded them too when it asked me if i wanted to download
It'll be two separate files
ALSO is it wipe data/factory reset or wipe cache partition?
Sorry, being a pain.
Where would the other Googleapps be? i dont really want a phone without google market Etc
also my nandroid backups seem to be on my external SD card is that okayy O_O
Wipe data/factory reset
Like I said, download this one if you're unsure: gapps-gb-20110727-gtalkvid-signed.zip
Yes, that's where they're meant to be.
CM uses the external card as /sdcard and the internal card as /mnt/emmc (unless you choose to swap them over)
I found them there in clockworkmod>download>and on the file underneath.
Shall I take the external SD card out when flashing cyangenmod?
No, leave it in place, files need to be read from it.
Okayy thats cool, its just a read somewhere it deletes everything so i was scared LOL scared, that it would delete my nandroid backups ! I hope everything works when i do it if not well im screwed... LOL
I now have cyangenmod 7.1 ! Thanks :d
'Bout freaking time
Haha XD Sorry man its just my phones on contract, and i didnt wanna ya no mess it up and then go back to a non-droid D: how bad would that be, theres just one thing i do not like about it when you open the app draw it isnt the 3D one so i had to use a launcher so its as if i havnt installed a custom rom anyway except for a few tweaks
That's the beauty of it, customize it to your liking. I use Launcher2 taken from the T-Mobile G2 which is the stock Android launcher but with 7 screens.
