    So I have rooted my phone, backed up with nandroid, and installed the darchstar 2.8 ROM. I love the senseless UI and am really glad that I did it. The only problem is I cannot find the Market app. I have downloaded the Google Shits file but I have been unable to install it. Can someone point me in the right direction so I can get access to the market?

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to flash the Google Shits in order to get the market working. That, or technically you could take each and every apk and push them to your phone. I recommend flashing it though from Recovery.

    That is the exact terminology that I needed to get things working again. Thank you sir, people like you give the Android community a good name.

    Thanks :), glad to help.

    But don't let Kelmar know, or I won't be permitted to leave the root section again... :D

    I'm feeling a bit thick today... I've been searching but can't seem to find an actual, downloadable G.S. file to put on the phone and flash...

    Help a brother out?
