    So I just went for my first root. I went with cyanogenmod, but I guess I was supposed to check a gmail apps...? Or something. So I'm missing my gmail, marketplace, etc... Supposedly there's a .zip somewhere on cyanogenmod's site, but I cant find it.

    Any help?

    should work with any droid running cyanogenmod. I guess it would really work with any device. Its the same gapps used on N1

    So I tried installing it. I allowed download, and it started installing and said installation aborted. I tried twice.

    You could try redownloading although you would have much better luck just flashing clockworkmod recovery. Its better than SPR anyway

    Did you press Allow when it asked for super-user rights? Sometimes SU Permissions works weird the first time you allow, so try flashing it again and see if it is successful.

    ah well the problem there is that you dont have the current version of rom manager. nice little problem since you cant get it without the market.

    download this on your phone and install

    http://www.droidaftermarket.com/koush/recoveries/RomManager.apk

    it should be the current version of rom manager

    The first time I tried flashing it it didnt prompt me to give permission. So I tried rebooting my phone, and right at the reboot it popped up, but by then it was too late. I did try to press accept.

    Would it be easier just to start from the beginning??
    Thanks for the quick responses.

    well you could flash a different rom then download rom manager from the market flash clockwork recovery then flash cyanogenmod and gapps. But downloading rom manager and installing it sounds a lot easier to me

    The link isn't working on my phone browser. It says the site is down. But on the computer it works fine. Can I put it on my SD and install it?

    you would have to use either terminal or Adb to install it since you dont have a file browser on your phone.

    You could go a head and just reinstall CM from RomManager, and make sure to check Gapps... That would probably be the easiest...
