    If you flashed 5.0.5.7 you should have ROM Manager you can re-download the ROM and make sure you check Google Apps.

    When you open Rom Manager, you click Download ROM, then CyanogenMod, then CyanogenMod 5.0.5.7, then you get a pop up for Google Apps

    Put it on your sdcard then reboot into recovery then install zip from sd find the zip and install. Don't need to wipe or reinstall the rom

    ok this is not hard. Put the zip anywhere on your sd card. Easiest would be in the main folder.

    Then hold the power button and power off the phone.

    Then open the keyboard and hold the x button

    While still holding x press the power button again.

    Then use the volume up and down on the side of the phone to go to install zip from sd card

    Press the camera button to select

    go to choose zip from sdcard

    Find the zip

    Once its done press the power button a few times to get back to the main menu and reboot.

    Your done

    You need, as noted, the separate zip with all the google apps that is not included in the cyangoenmod ROM.

    Go to here: Cyanogenmod For Droid V5.0.5.7 (04/05/2010) - CyanogenMod Forum

    Scroll down in the first post and download the file below (find the actual link in the thread from the link above):

    - Google Addon: EPE54B

    Put it on your SD card.

    Start ROM Manager and select Install ROM from SD card

    Navigate to where you put the download and select it.

    Done.

    WHen the update is over you'll have all your google apps...also, the apps you had installed before the update should start installing automatically to your Droid...that's worked for me the two times I've reset and installed 5.0.5.7...

    Good luck.

    I had the same problem with Market not showing up, then a bunch of battery issues with 5.0.5.7. Wiped it, then put on UD 9.8.0 and it's awesome!

    The only issue I'm having with 5.0.5.7 is the SoundRecorder.apk app not showing up anywhere that it can be used. When I try to reinstall it I get

    The ironic thing is, a great deal of the VT state troopers really do act like that. A very good friend of mine when I still lived there is a cop.
