Ok so last night I took the plunge to root (video: rooting/unrooting a motorola droid with droidmod 1.0 – part 1 | Droid Life: A Motorola Droid Blog) , and going to the Cyanogen ROM.
I followed the steps on this video. (Video: Installing CyanogenMod V18.104.22.168 for Droid | Droid Life: A Motorola Droid Blog)
My ONLY issue is after loading the ROM i downloaded onto the SD card it goes into the Clockwork Recovery Screen and Installs the ROM (In about 10Seconds) It completes fine (or so it says) but i never get the welcome screen, it takes me to the 2.1 screen but it is missing a TON of apps (gmail, market, others i cant remember off hand). Has anyone else seen issues like this? Did I maybe miss a step? I did make make a secesful backup of my phone before the attempt to load the new ROM so i am back to the way it was before. I would really like to use the Cyanogen ROM but dont want to keep having the same luck. (I did re do the entire process twice and got the same result)
