    You need to download gapps as well.

    Just a warning about rom manager I've seen plenty of botched downloads causing bootloops or force close fiestas when using rom manager to download and flash so if you have issues you might want to restore a backup and downloading via the browser

    Feel free to try rom manager when it works it works well. Those few times it doesn't work cause issues ;) I personally like being able to check my md5 sums before flashing so I do everything manually and on the phone. If you know how to manually boot into recovery and flash/restore in recovery then you should be able to fix any issue that could happen :)

    Matching md5 sums makes sure your download is correct. Try AFV in the android market(its the one with the alienware looking logo) to check md5 sums.

    To add to what rexdog said the MD5 sum is unique to every file. Most rom devs will list the MD5 sum on their post about the rom, after you download the zip you check it and if it matches you know the file you downloaded is the exact copy of the file posted by the dev. If it differs at all then there is something different in the file (it is corrupted) and you should delete and download again.

    The reason I don't like rom manager is because it doesn't check this or allow you to if you don't know where the dev's post is or if you use rom manager to flash the rom after the download.

    I know your next post says you got it all figured out but just for others who might stumble upon this thread:
    You flash gapps like a rom or kernel but just don't have to wipe anything.
