    Maybe it's just me but this link has yet to work for me!!!

    http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.ph...on/Google_Apps

    It says "There is no text on this page". Nobody else seems to say anything about this problem.

    I am SICK AND TIRED OF NOT being able to properly use a ROM because they linked the gapps to the CM wiki. So, I was wondering. Since gapps stands for "Google Apps", can't I skip the process of installing it? I don't care much about installing things like Gmail, Voice, etc at the very first setup of the ROM. I can do that later. So why is gapps needed?

    Among a few other reasons, it's better to have them than now. Here's an easy link for ya:

    Goo.im Downloads - Browsing gapps

    The reason is the vending.apk is a part of those Gapps. The vending.apk is the PlayStore. Also needed is the Google services framework.apk as well as a few other Google.apk's.

    Most of the ROM threads from before the change haven't been updated. Those after, well....
    .ask the developer of the ROM.

    For Gingerbread ROMs you will need the 20110828 Gapps (either version)

    I know about that link. Problem is it doesn't tell me which one to download for which ROM.

    Good idea. I don't know why I didn't just ask the dev for the gapps.zip...

    Froyo ROMs don't require the Gapps and the ICS ROMs vary depending on the developer. Those developers are good about giving that info in the link.
