Issue with flashing CyanogenMod 6
I have previously flashed CM6 with no issues, but switched back to stock after a week or so. Now, I want to use CM again, but didn't do a nandroid backup of CM, so I had to reflash and start from scratch.
This time, I had a few issues...
Upon flashing the rom, I immediately set up my google accounts, then installed Gapps. Somehow, a LOT of my preferences from my previous install of CM restored. The wallpaper changed to the one that I previously used (which is not the default) and a lot of my old apps appeared, that I no longer have installed. I figured this had something to do with not clearing the cache properly? I then wiped the phone, and cleared the dalvik cache, and reflashed the rom.
This time, it STILL restored my old settings/some apps, and the market would not stop force closing on me. I tried flashing the new market zip, and I was having the same problem. I tried fixing permissions in ROM Manager but this did not help. The market would constantly force close, which seemed to be triggered the first time I downloaded/installed an app. It didn't even matter if I had the market open, it would constantly try to restart in the background, causing FC messages every 30 seconds or so..... so without a solution, I had to revert to the stock rom, but really want to flash CM again.
Any ideas of what I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance

When you use CM, you're getting the google experience and the first time you used it I bet you hit backup my apps and data with Google.
That's why you're stuff starts to get re-installed.
As far as the market, just use the one that came included in gapps and let it update itself after that.
Also, when I previously had CM installed, the market never updated to the new market. I waited over a week and it never updated, any reason why?

Thought I'd tag along on this thread for my question....I am on Myn's TwoPointTwo and love it. However, I see Cyanogen mentioned quite a bit and after looking for info on why it is so good, I can't find much.
So........what is so good about Cyanogen? Why would I want to switch from Myn's, or would I want to?

Cyanogen ROMS are AOSP ROMS, not Sense ROMS. This means they give you a pure Android experience. Sense is a User Interface (UI) developed by HTC that provides functionality that the base Android OS (Operating System) doesn't. Cyanogen has all forms of Sense removed from the OS. Some people prefer this others don't. It just a matter of preference. If your rooted you really owe it to yourselft to try it out. I was very impressed with it but it became to unstable for me to use after a few days. I'm sure as development continues on this ROM these issues will get worked out.
