    My Ascend came with Gmail.apk on it. I am running 2.1 stock. I removed it. Can I get it back? I want it for the push notifications. I believe the Email app doesn't use push. Trying to conserve battery.

    Look @ the 'WELCOME HUAWEI ASCEND USERS' thread,post #80.All the apks are listed there.I was one of the 1st to make the mistake of deleting too much when unbloating.Check the STICKY @ the beginning of this forum on what's safe to delete to save yourself from future issues.

    find kskulls post with the gapps repository link and get the 2.1 package.
    unzip it and find the gmail.apk.
    use a file manager (such as androot) and move the apk to system>app on your phone.

    reboot.

    It's not there if you are running 2.1. Only 2.2+

    Get the gapps apk onto your sd card. It should be a zip file. Reboot phone into recovery mode and install from sd card. (You can only do this if your rooted)
