    I want to download the entire CM 7 to replace my stock ROM. The only downloads I see have "update-cm-7.1....."

    Is this file all I need to flash it? I tried it once yesterday but was unable to find the MARKET after rebooting, thus my apps were 'somewhere' I wasn't able to find them!

    Someone suggested that I also include the GAPPS download file? Do I just place that file on the sdcard? Still learnin' :eek:

    After you flash CM7, I would let it boot fulling then reboot to recovery, wipe dalvik-cache and cache then flash the GAPPS zip. After that is finished, reboot your phone normally and you should have the Google apps including the market on your phone to use.

    yes you will need the gapps file to get the market as well as other google apps. all aosp roms will need to have gapps flashed separately. so like xrteme recommends to wipe both caches and flash the gapps. there is a cool gapps file in the http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/284413-roms-kernels-download-page.html. go to the aosp section. it has the gapps file plus sprint's vvm (visual voice message) cooked in.
