After having a literally unfixable double notification issue I decided to reflash 1.1.1. Wiped everything, installed the rom, 1ghz kernel + gapps with stock theme. My phone is now on, but only one app downloaded (angry birds), and when I search for other apps I need, it shows that the market is already trying to download them but they're just sitting there doing nothing. I have ample space on my phone.
Not only that but if I try to search in the browser by typing my search syntax in the address bar, it FCs immediately. I've always ran at at least 1ghz so I don't think it is kernel related. I've had several problems now with 1.1.1 and reflashing did not help. FWIW the double notification issue is gone now, but what am I doing wrong that's causing these other issues?
