    Let me start by saying this rom is very eye appealing and the way it runs on my Droid is amazing! But I'm having a few issues. For some reason I cant sync my contacts. Gmail syncs fine. When I first installed this rom I was not asked to sign into my google account. Is this normal? Also no market app? Maybe this rom is way above my learning curve or maybe I have a bad install. Im leaning towards a bad install.

    A little info when trying to sync my contacts I get the message "unable to open connection to server" I'm sure this is a error on my part. Not sure what the server settings should. I really like the look of this rom and dont want to move away from it without trying to make things work.

    Thanks Phin

    Gapps

    you have to install sourcerygappsplus also.
    if you installed from rommanger it was a choose when you installed probably just missed it.
    if you downloaded than the gapps are on your sdcard just install them and all should be cool.

    Wow thanks for the fast response. Yes I installed from rom manager, so I'm sure I missed the googleapps option. Where can I go from here? Should I download and place on my sdcard and reinstall?

    after you get it all synced up go to the themes section and ***** for a while about no preivews :)
    than go to the start of magic settings and choose rom update than check for thsoe previews again :)

    and more coming magic coming. hope you enjoy the rom.

    please go and read the 3rd post in the original sourcery christmas release this will give you some helpful instructions also.

    People's read the release notes please

    Not downloading any apps i am thinking this is because you dont have the market? If this is the case its because you have to install the gapps also.

    If this is not the case than try reinstalling because i can guarentee you that this rom does download apps.

    guys need to remember google does not allow rom devs to bundle the google apps in the rom. it always has to be distinct and separate download.

    ok

    Ok I see you did get gapps. This is not a uncommon problem.
    1st thing is its best to keep 3g on until the sync completes changing to wif ussually kills the downloads but rebooting ussually fixes this so that may not be it.
    2nd thing is at times you have to cancel 1 of the downloads and restart that download and it will restart the rest of the downloads.

    If neither of these work than try reinstalling. this does happen occacionally. funny thing is i know this from months and months of installing diffferent roms but have not had it actually happen on sourcery....except when testing one of these new markets :)
