    I ticked the Google Apps option when flashing if that is what you mean.

    Edit: Or did I? I had to install from SD in the end so maybe I didn't. How do I now do that?

    Go to cyanogenmod.com, click downloads>your phone model and there should be a seperate download for Google Apps. Cyanogen mod have to leave it out of the main install for copyright reasons I belive. Then just install it in recovery mode. If all else fails it may be worth wiping, clearing cache data etc and re-installing.

    I take it you've installed a stable version of CM?

    Yeh. Found that and downloading to SD. If not I will try over Wifi at home later.

    It's the latest stable version.

    Yes, you should still have market, although it probably won't work until you have synced to your Google account

    Does anybody know if the Nexus One has Gingerbread yet? Once it does, there should be a stable Oxygen Gingerbread release not far away...
    I'm just waiting on Oxygen coming up with a Gingerbread release too, hopefully it won't be too much longer now. Unfortunately, I modded my Desire with a rom called NextSense, which had a few benefits that I wanted at the time. I found that there were some aspects of Sense that I wanted to keep, the camera for one, it's much better than the stock Android camera. However, the mod I used had a nasty American version of Google Maps installed (she kept asking me to turn left at the traffic circle, etc... Arghh!) and in trying to remove this and replace it with the standard British version I managed to bork it and have been without maps (or sat-nav) for the last 3 or 4 months, a nuisance that I'd like to correct once there's a decent Gingerbread mod out.

    I think I've settled on Oxygen as my preferred candidate down to good reviews of it here, and the fact that a work colleague is using the Open Desire rom and rates it well too. I believe I'm right in thinking they both have the same developer.
