    So Im gonna start this off by saying I am new to rooting so my terminology may not be 100% correct on this, but any help I can get would be awesome. I initially tried rooting my D2 running 2.3.3 with a oneclick and proceeded to try and install Cyanogen 7.1 and of course ended up in a bootloop like everyone else that has attempted it in this fashion. After wiping my phone I then installed 2.3.2 because I noticed a higher success rate with this version with Cyanogen 7.1. Everything went beautifully and I couldn't be happier... however the success is bitter sweet. I am currently not able to run any google apps and am without any of my contacts, and my phone didn't reboot with droid market. I have noticed through other threads that I should be able to DL and install a google app MOD through CWM that should help me restore my contacts and all that fun jazz but at the root of the problem CWM Rom Manger v4.8.0.2 won't allow me to download any ROMs and gives me an error message "You must upgrade your ROM Manager to the latest version" but I haven't been able to figure out how to go about this. When I click "OK" it then gives me the error message "The application ROM Manager (process com.koushikdutta.rommanager) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."

    I am basically stuck with no way of knowing how to get droid market back on my phone, update CWM ROM Manager, or the google apps to help me upload all my backed up phone numbers OR how to access my backup assistant from verizon should google apps fail me.

    On a less important note, I am also encountering problems putting shortcuts on my home pages, instead of adding a shortcut it just opens the file that I am trying to create a shortcut for and doesnt add the shortcut and my video recorder is not working and causes a force close of the video recorder when attempting to use it.

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, I don't want to have to start from scratch again but I'm thinking I might just need to go with a more stable MOD than Cyanogen for my droid2. Thank you all very much.

    THANKS! I got her all figured out last night and and she's purrin like a kitten but you were 100% right.

    So with 87 views on this thread and 1 reply people are thinking 1 of 2 things:

    1.What an Idiot (probably the majority, but what else do you expect from a newbie rooter who starts his threads out like every other newbie by stating he is a newbie :p)

    2.How do I fix this too!?

    So after getting help from another wonderful individual on Cyanogens forums I discovered all I needed to do was download GAPPS zip (derp), apply to root on SD card, Reboot into recovery and install zip file and BOOOOM, all of the above problems were fixed. Very simple even for a guy like me.

    GAPPS zip can be found at goo-inside.me/gapps

    Now I'm gonna go enjoy my phone. Thanks again everyone for helping to provide the resources and knowledge that makes this possible!
