    is everything!
    Here's the deal..Rooted my V tonight and installed the GREEN THEME and Backside ROM

    Everything went smooth as silk..Phone boots to the green monster,etc, etc.

    My problem(s):

    1. I can't find the "Market" at all. I even tried going to the market website to re-download it, and it says it's already installed and won't let me do anything else. How do I find, restore, or delete/re-download the market?

    2. Same problem as above is true with all my other apps as well. Website says they are already installed?

    I rooted the phone using the easy rooting method to install GingerBreak if that matters.

    I made a back-up of the original ROM using Clockworkmod Recovery.

    What in the world am I missing here? Seems like everyone else has their Market App :(

    You need to download gapps.zip and have it on your SD card, boot into recovery, and install zip from SD card, just like you I stalled the rom. Non of the Google apps come with the rom due to legal issues. So you gotta remember, when you flash a custom rom, that you also gotta flash gapps.

    The Gingerbread ROM's are the only one's that require the gapps. The Froyo based ROM's have pre-installed apps(including the Market app)
