    I keep getting com.gapps.android popping up on my phone and my 4G internet is gray. I'm rooted with Cyanogen 10. Any ideas?

    I'm assuming a clean flash, and you've already tried dirty flashing the same rom/gapps package, right? Did it start happening out of nowhere or right after flashing? I don't think the grey bars are much to worry about as long as you're getting data (believe I read grey is authenticating or something) as I see them occasionally and everything works as it should. Which gapps package did you flash?

    It happened after rebooting my phone.

    I should mention I have no idea what a gapp is, and if I factory reset my phone, will I lose my ROM?

    gapps are Google Apps: Calendar, Play Store, Talk, etc. I'm assuming the core process for them, which authenticates, is FC'ing on you. Grey bars means you are not connected to Google's servers for the gapps, so this would make sense.

    ^^right on. gapps are proprietary so devs (most) leave them out of their roms for fear of being served a cease and desist order from Google's lawyers. Yes, if you factory reset you will lose (wipe) everything but NOT anything on you internal sd card (your nandroid backup(s), download folder, anything backed up by a launcher, Titanium Backup/My Backup Pro, etc). I suggest you dirty flash your rom and gapps again. Doing this you won't lose anything. Just wipe cache and dalvik cache (don't wipe data/factory reset or wipe system), flash your rom and gapps package again, and reboot.

    If you're still having an issue do a full wipe/clean flash at that point. That's not nearly as much of a hassle as some would make it seem, especially if you backup/restore via a laucher (nova/apex) and also TiBu or MBP for apps/data. Google saves your contacts, photos, bookmarks, wifi passwords, and auto restores your apps. Occasionally the auto restore doesn't work for whatever reason so I keep backup of all the apks/data using MBP. Usually only setup my email accounts and Wallet. Aslo, if you use wallet, don't back it up. I always either reset it from inside the app or clear data and uninstall in settings before flashing a new rom. Then install the apk (if it's not in the gapps package) and go through the setup process. It still remembers all your info from the cloud. Apparently some have been unlucky restoring it and borked their secure element.
