    Dumb question I realize, but before you tried to install CM 7, did you use Rom Manager to install CWM Recovery first, followed by creating a nandroid backup?

    Here's a followup thought: Are you trying to get Rom Manager to do the installation of CM 7 and the Google Apps? That probably isn't a real good idea, because Rom Manager is kind of a goofy app, and frequently does the opposite of what you tell it to do. The correct procedure is to install the rom first, followed by the gapps. If Rom Manager installed the gapps FIRST, that could be the reason you're experiencing problems.

    I finally got it installed. I used a nightly build. I did notice that after install that it kept changing my phone from 3G to EDGE then to no service. Is that a battery saver for CM or a tech issue.
