    cant download certain files?

    So I've never had this problem but can't dl certain files with a message saying the file type isn't supported by my phone? Its a .zip file. Also no custom user agent setting for browser?

    I cant download market apps anymore since installing BBv1, sometimes they eventually download, but usually they just sit there saying "starting download"

    try just restarting your phone
    Rebooted, reflashed, reset to factory defaults, no luck.

    The market lag is because your phone is trying to automatically re-download ALL of the apps you had installed before.

    Once that is done, it will let you browse the market again.

    Try turning on wifi and just letting it download for an hour or so so it can catch up, then see if the market works.
    Cool CM Tricks
    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)
