    So I recently upgraded to the Droid Charge (which is frickin' awesome btw) and now I have my OG Droid as a spare and I was going to start tinkering with it flashing different ROMS and such. Currently it's running Bugless Beast v6.2.1. I flashed CM7 with no problems, but when it's all loaded up, the Market is missing and I am unable to go through the setup using my Google account - none of my contacts show up. Is this normal seeing as the phone is technically inactive now? I restored back to my BB backup and everything is fine. Any ideas?

    Skip the GMail sign-in process until you are able to set up wifi, then you should be able to log into GMail and sync all your info...

    Also, you need to be aware if the ROM you are flashing needs to also have G-Apps installed along with it...

    Do I flash CM7 first, let it load, reboot into recovery again and then flash Google Apps?

    I don't think yo have to. I believe you can flash Gapps right after flashing CM7. It shouldn't give you any issues.
    Good luck.
